Dental Implants in West Malling

Why do I need Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are an extremely tough and natural way to replace missing teeth. They are titanium rods, which are surgically fitted into the jawbone and used as an anchor for crowns and bridges.

Dental Implants are far superior to removable dentures (plastic or metal), and are virtually undetectable. They will save you time and have long term health benefits compared with other treatments on offer (90% of modern implants last an absolute minimum of 15 years).

Implants improve the appearance and function of your dentition. However, they are not suitable for everyone and we will advise you of the procedures associated with implants.

  • Dental implants protect teeth either side of gaps from bite damage.
  • They allow you to relax and enjoy any food fully again.
  • Dental implants help you feel more confident and assured in your bite and smile.
  • They help to save the bone from an extraction site from being lost (resorbed) by the body-hence its best to place an Implant 3-6 months after any tooth is lost.
  • Used to replace your partial or full denture, helping to restore a more youthful appearance.
  • abutment for dental implant before fitting the crown
  • Teeth after dental implant crown
  • Missing tooth before dental implants
  • smile after dental implant

Dental IMplants – The Process

Dental Implants Treatment Plan

It usually takes three to six months for the surgical implant to heal before the artificial tooth or teeth can be mounted onto the implant.

Due to the amount of precision surgery, laboratory technical work and the costs of materials, this procedure is fairly expensive but this is the closest you will ever come to re growing your natural teeth. Sometimes when teeth have been missing for years – the bone that used to support them has receded (thinned). In this case it’s advisable to restore the thickness by surgically adding sterile bone before the implants themselves are fitted. This bone is naturally incorporated by and fuses with your own bone.

Implant patients need to be in good general health, because of the surgery needed. Some diseases, such as diabetes, osteoporosis or chronic sinus problems, could interfere with healing and make implants more likely to fail. You should tell your dentist about any existing conditions you have that might effect your suitability for dental implants.
