In simple terms, a dental implant is little more than a screw, made from titanium. It is used to support one, or more, false teeth. Much like your natural teeth they last for as long as they are cared for, and may become infected, and infect the surrounding gum, if they are not.
Dental implants from £2800
At High Locks dental Practice, we will need to arrange for a number of tests to ascertain whether the condition of your jaw bone is suitable to support dental implants. At this point, your dentist will discuss your options with you.
Depending on the condition of your jaw bone, as well as the amount of implants that we will be inserting, there may be different timescales on the initial procedure. However, your dentist will give you a rough timescale at the start of the procedure. We will need to give your jaw time to fuse with your new implants, which may take a couple of months before we can arrange for false teeth to be put in.
You shouldn't feel any pain during the procedure itself, as we use simple local anaesthetic throughout, however you may feel some discomfort in the subsequent weeks.
Implants look like your regular natural teeth. Just like natural teeth they will need to be cleaned regularly to avoid infection.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can book an appointment with a dentist at our practice by calling 01778 347 677. From here they will assess your dental situation, offer options and help you make the best choice going forward.
