Dental Implants

Teeth can be lost for a number of reasons including decay, trauma, infection or gum disease, and this loss can result in a whole host of problems. Dental implants provide a fixed alternative to removable dentures. They can also replace missing teeth without the need to remove healthy tooth structure from adjacent teeth. Implants can improve appearance, how you eat and speak and prevent shrinkage of the jawbone.

What is a dental implant?

Implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to act just like tooth roots. As titanium is a durable metal that is very well tolerated by the body, these cylindrical posts eventually fuse with the bone, providing a firm foundation for a crown or bridge.

Are you suitable for dental implants?

Every patient is different, therefore before beginning the treatment we will always carry out a full assessment of your general health, your oral health and the density of your jaw bone.
If we discover that you have insufficient bone volume, you may need a grafting procedure to allow for the successful placement of implants.

Points to consider

If your implant is incorrectly positioned or if there is inadequate bone or gum around the implant, you can experience gum recession. Therefore, is it very important to find an experienced dental implantologist. At Chiltern Avenue Dental Practice, we strive to provide the highest quality dentistry we can offer.

In addition, if you have any of the following, you may be at greater risk of experiencing problems or complications associated with dental implant treatment:

  • Gum disease
  • Regular smoking
  • Insufficient healthy jawbone and unsuitability for a bone graft
  • Medical conditions such as diabetes, which can affect your body’s self-healing ability
  • Any condition that affects your ability to clean your teeth well, i.e. that affects the use of your hands and arms
  • Lack of commitment to regular maintenance and proper dental aftercare at home

Not all patients may be suitable for implants.

I had a tooth infection and this practice gave me an immediate appointment. The dentist was very knowledgeable and talked me through the process of correcting the underlying issue. The receptionist was also very professional and understanding.
