Dental Implants

DENTAL IMPLANTS OFFER A PERMANENT SOLUTION FOR YOUR MISSING TEETH.

The loss or damage of even a single tooth can have a massive impact on everyday life, teeth function and self-esteem. People lose their teeth for many reasons, sometimes due to an accident, illness or poor maintenance. Other people simply inherit poor teeth. Whatever the reasons for tooth loss, it can have a negative impact on your quality of life. You may no longer eat many of the foods that you once enjoyed, you may be self conscious about your appearance, you may stop smiling or you may experience pain from ill fitting dentures.

Here at Specialist Dental we can help. Dental implants are a lasting solution to tooth loss and can be used in both aesthetic and functional treatments. Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, or would like a secure option to anchor dentures, dental implants could be the best solution.

Implant treatment is carried out by Dr Sohaib Safiullah and Dr Nada Al-Nahi. We use the latest equipment and the highest quality materials to achieve optimum success

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

They are small surgical grade titanium screws that are gently placed into the bony space where your roots once were. Bone integrates with the titanium for a strong bond together allowing the implant to become your new root. We can build on this to allow individual teeth or bridges to be constructed. Implants are also used to stabilise and retain dentures causing a breakthrough in confidence, comfort and improved lifestyle for many denture wearers.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?

Placing of the implants is carried out at the practice. It involves a simple operation which is carried out under a normal local anaesthetic. The after effects are similar to having a tooth extracted. You may feel mild discomfort and experience some swelling due to the normal healing process, however this is usually well controlled by medication that we will provide.

HOW LONG WILL THE IMPLANTS LAST?

Once treatment is completed, routine hygiene examinations and regular appointments with your dentist should ensure that implants last for many years.

HOW LONG DOES THIS TREATMENT TAKE?

The implant must be allowed to bond (integrate) with the bone. This may take up to three months depending on the individual patient. It may be possible to place a temporary replacement for your missing teeth. Once healing and integration have occurred the permanent replacement is made and fitted
