DENTAL IMPLANTS AT REFINE

Our aim is to provide high quality, Specialist Dental Care, in a relaxed, professional environment, under the care of highly skilled Dental Professionals.

While we would always aim to help you keep your own teeth wherever possible, dental implants are fast becoming the treatment of choice as the most natural alternative for replacement in the event of tooth loss.

A dental implant involves the placement of a small titanium insert (artificial tooth root) into the bone; specially crafted teeth that both look and feel completely natural can then be attached to this insert. Dental implants involve some minor surgery but this can be easily managed by the majority of patients.

Dental implants are completely fixed and secure, restore the natural function of your teeth and do not require the neighbouring teeth to be filed down. They offer a long-term solution that does wonders in terms of your ability to eat, speak and feel confident with your smile.

Replacement teeth which are supported by implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. This means you can eat and drink whatever you want, whenever you want. More importantly, dental implants often improve your quality of life by increasing your confidence. People who are embarrassed or concerned by tooth problems can be astonished by the ways implant-supported permanent teeth improve their self-esteem. Dental implants offer a long-term solution to tooth loss whether that may be for a single tooth, several teeth or all the teeth in an arch. 

Many denture wearers are turning to dental implants as a long-term solution to providing a secure and comfortable denture fit. Implants can be used to anchor your dentures without the need for dental adhesives.

This means that your dentures can look and function like natural teeth and you will no longer have to worry about your dentures moving when you talk or chew.

If you have missing teeth, there are several options available for you, come and see us for a free consultation today.

DENTAL IMPLANT FAQs

What is a dental implant?

While we would always aim to help you keep your own teeth wherever possible, dental implants are fast becoming the treatment of choice as the most natural alternative for replacement in the event of tooth loss. A dental implant involves the placement of a small titanium insert (artificial tooth root) into the bone; specially crafted teeth that both look and feel completely natural can then be attached to this insert. Dental implants involve some minor surgery but this can be easily managed by the majority of patients. Dental implants are completely fixed and secure, restore the natural function of your teeth and do not require the neighbouring teeth to be filed down. They offer a long-term solution that does wonders in terms of your ability to eat, speak and feel confident with your smile.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Replacement teeth which are supported by implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. This means you can eat and drink whatever you want, whenever you want. More importantly, dental implants often improve your quality of life by increasing your confidence. People who are embarrassed or concerned by tooth problems can be astonished by the ways implant-supported permanent teeth improve their self-esteem. Dental implants offer a long-term solution to tooth loss.

Will I need one implant for each missing tooth?

No, only if a single tooth is being replaced. Usually six implants in the lower jaw will support 10-12 teeth. In the upper jaw, eight implants will support the same amount of teeth. Where a few teeth are missing, two or three implants are enough.

Can anyone have implants?

There are very few cases where implants are not suitable. Some patients may not have enough bone to place the implants, though even this can be rectified. Dental implants are ideal for anyone missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or decay. Age is definitely not a factor, although it is inadvisable for implants to be used in younger patients who are still growing. Refine Specialist Dental Care can provide a full consultation and evaluation of your medical and dental history to determine whether implants are appropriate for you.

How successful are implants?

The placement of implants has very high success rates. Ongoing research reports a 95% survival rate for individual implants and higher rates for implant-supported bridges.

What is the procedure for a dental implant?

If you are considering dental implants, you will have a detailed consultation at Refine Specialist Dental Care to determine whether it is an appropriate treatment option. We will explain the whole process and show you examples of how implants work. You will be given a breakdown of the dentistry costs and the time it will take. If you decide to have treatment, you will then return for pre-planning, where we will discuss our treatment plan with you. We will provide a written report and an estimate of the timescale and cost of treatment.

The next stage is the positioning of the implant. This is a simple, gentle and relatively minor surgical procedure to place the implant into the bone. This phase is normally carried out under local anaesthetic. Intravenous sedation is available, and is often used to help those who are anxious or for those having extensive treatment. The implant is then left to heal for three to twelve weeks. We recommend this period of healing to enable the implant to fully integrate before loading, which dramatically reduces the risk of failure. A temporary prosthesis is used while the implants are integrated.

After healing has taken place, the restorative phase is performed. The implant is uncovered, impressions are taken and the final restoration is fitted. More complex treatment may require that several of these phases take place at the same time.

How long does it take?

The whole process may take just a few weeks or, for complex dental reconstructions, up to 18 months. The actual procedure will depend on factors, such as your dental health, the number of teeth involved and which teeth are being replaced. These factors will also determine the total number of visits throughout the treatment period.

Does the treatment hurt?

This is a surgical procedure and you would be advised to expect a little discomfort for a few days after the surgery. Generally, this is easily managed with everyday painkillers. You will have some stitches, which are usually dissolvable. Most patients say they had less pain than they expected.

How much do implants cost?

We will provide a written estimate following a thorough diagnostic examination. A number of factors influence the amount of the treatment fees. These include the number of implants needed to support your replacement teeth and the number of teeth being replaced. In addition, some extra procedures may be required to ensure permanent success.

Are dental implants easy to look after?

Compared to dentures, implants are easy to look after. Implant-retained replacement teeth are just like your natural teeth. They should be cared for and checked regularly. Implants are susceptible to periodontal (gum) disease, just like your natural teeth. You will need to see the hygienist regularly, and maintain your own oral hygiene to a high standard, again just like your natural teeth.
