What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are advanced restorative solutions for missing teeth. Comprising a titanium post surgically placed in the jawbone, an abutment, and a custom-made crown, they mimic the structure and function of natural teeth. Implants provide a durable, permanent foundation for replacement teeth, ensuring stability, aesthetics, and the ability to eat and speak with confidence.

The fusion of the implant with the jawbone, known as osseointegration, adds further stability. Dental implants offer a long-lasting, natural-looking solution to restore both the appearance and functionality of a complete, healthy smile.

Why Get Implants?

Teeth may be missing for a number of reasons – decay, gum disease or after an accident. For some this may lead to feelings of self-consciousness. Not only this, but missing teeth can make chewing more difficult and the spaces around teeth can be a trap for plaque and food debris which increases your risk of decay and gum disease.

With dental implants, we literally reconstruct a new tooth and root. Implants can be used on a single root or a number can be placed where there are more teeth missing or existing teeth need replacing. Implants provide an infinitely more comfortable alternative to dentures and feel and look like natural teeth.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Choosing dental implants offers numerous benefits for individuals with missing teeth:

  1. Natural Appearance: Implants closely resemble natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing smile.
  2. Enhanced Functionality: With the stability and strength of implants, individuals can bite, chew, and speak with confidence, similar to natural teeth.
  3. Long-Term Solution: Implants are a durable and permanent solution, designed to last for many years with proper care.
  4. Preservation of Jawbone Health: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure over time.
  5. Improved Speech: Unlike removable dentures, implants eliminate concerns about slippage, ensuring clear and confident speech.
  6. Comfort and Convenience: Implants integrate seamlessly into daily life, eliminating the discomfort and inconvenience associated with removable dentures.
  7. Prevention of Shifting Teeth: Implants fill the gaps left by missing teeth, preventing adjacent teeth from shifting and causing misalignment.
  8. Easy Maintenance: Implants require the same oral hygiene practices as natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.
  9. Restored Confidence: The natural look and feel of dental implants contribute to increased self-esteem and confidence in social and professional settings.
  10. Versatility: Implants can support various restorations, from single crowns to bridges and even full arches of teeth.

Implants are stronger than natural teeth and many patients report the renewed ability to eat all sorts of foods when once they could only manage soft foods. If you have a gap, why not see what we can do?

Frequently Asked Questions

What is advantage of implants over other methods of tooth restoration?

The most common alternatives to dental implants are denture and bridges. Getting a bridge requires attaching false teeth to your existing teeth. This involves filing or modifying the teeth on either side of missing teeth in order to support bridge which can have implication is future. Also, often require replacement which makes it more costly option over time. Dentures are false teeth attached to plastic or metal plate which are placed in placed in mouth and are removable. They are cumbersome, uncomfortable and limit your dietary intake. Also, with time they might wear or become loose fitted causing slippage and imprecise fit issues. Whereas dental implants are the permanent solution to missing teeth. They are comfortable, effective, aesthetically pleasing, look and behave just like natural tooth, do not impact surrounding teeth and less costly over long run.

How do I know if I’m suitable for dental implants?

A person who can undergo tooth extractions or bridgework can undergo dental implant treatment. The location and the amount of bone available in the implant area is normally the major factor to be considered for any case. Normally implants are suitable and best option for most cases but its best to have a consultation with our dentist to check for suitability and ask any questions you might have for the treatment.

Can I get dental implants on NHS?

Dental implants are typically not available through the NHS, as they are considered a cosmetic procedure. However, in some rare cases where the implants are deemed medically necessary, the NHS may cover the cost. It’s best to consult with our dentist and NHS dental services for specific eligibility criteria and options available in your area.

How long does it take for the dental implant treatment?

Our dentist should be able to give you a rough estimate about time after your first consultation. Nowadays some false teeth are fitted as the same time as implants for some cases. Check with your dentist to see if it’s suitable for you. Normally the false teeth are fitted after 3-4 months after placing the implant. In some instances it might take longer due to complexity of the case but your dentist should be able to let you know about this during your treatment.

How do dental implants look?

They look exactly the same as your natural teeth.

Is dental Implant painful?

Typically, implant treatment is no more painful than having a tooth extracted. Often, we place implants using a surgical guide that we can create from your CT cone beam scan. This enables us to insert implants through a small punch hole, akin to keyhole surgery. Consequently, the treatment is virtually painless.

Should I get my own dentist to remove the tooth before I discuss implants with you?

It’s a good idea to come and see us as soon as you can. If we need to extract a tooth before the implant, it’s essential to do it delicately to preserve your own bone. If your dentist is experienced in this, that’s fantastic! But if not, don’t worry; we can handle the tooth removal at our surgery along with the implant placement. Just let us know what works best for you!

What are implants made from?

Implants are made from titanium. Bone has a natural affinity for titanium which enables it to grow around the implant effectively becoming part of your bone.

Can anyone get dental implants?

In general, most healthy individuals with good oral health are suitable candidates for dental implant treatment. However, a comprehensive dental evaluation is necessary to determine if you are an ideal candidate.

Will I be without teeth during the implant process?

Our dentist will provide temporary tooth replacements during the healing period to ensure you don’t go without teeth. These can be removable dentures or temporary crowns.

How long is the recovery period after dental implants?

After undergoing dental implant surgery, the initial recovery period usually spans a few days, during which you may encounter temporary swelling and discomfort. The complete healing and osseointegration process can extend over several months, allowing the implant to firmly integrate with the jawbone.

Can smokers get dental implants?

Although smoking can increase the risk of complications and hinder the healing process, smokers can still get dental implants. However, it is strongly advised to quit smoking or at least reduce smoking to increase the chances of successful implant integration.

Is there an age limit for dental implant treatment?

There is no strict age limit for dental implant treatment. As long as you have good oral health and are suitable for the procedure, dental implants can be considered at any age.

Do I need a bone graft for dental implants?

Not every dental implant case requires a bone graft. It depends on the jawbone’s condition and the specific implantation site. A comprehensive assessment by a dental professional will determine the necessity.

Bridge or dental implant: Which one should I choose?

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, two popular options are dental bridges and dental implants. Both solutions offer their own set of benefits and considerations. The choice between a bridge and a dental implant depends on various factors, including your oral health, budget, and personal preferences. Consulting with a qualified dentist like us is crucial to determine the most suitable option tailored to your individual needs.

Can dental implants replace multiple missing teeth?

Yes, dental implants can replace multiple missing teeth. Implant-supported bridges or dentures are effective solutions for restoring function and aesthetics in cases of several missing teeth.

Can dental implants fail, and what are the common reasons?

While rare, dental implant failure can occur. Common reasons include infection, poor osseointegration, peri-implantitis (gum disease around the implant), or complications during surgery.

Can I get dental implants if I have diabetes?

Diabetic individuals can be candidates for dental implants, but strict blood sugar control is essential. Diabetes management and overall health play a role in the success of the implant procedure.

Can I get dental implants if I grind my teeth?

Teeth grinding (bruxism) can impact dental implants. Our dentist may recommend a nightguard to protect the implants and address the underlying issue of teeth grinding before proceeding with implant surgery.

Can dental implants be placed if I have had jaw surgery before?

Dental implants can be placed after jaw surgery, depending on the specific procedure and its impact on the bone structure. A thorough evaluation by our dentist is necessary.

Do dental implants affect surrounding teeth?

Dental implants are independent structures that do not negatively impact surrounding teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, adjacent teeth remain untouched, preserving their natural structure.

I cannot praise Dr Crowley and the team at Molesey Dental practise enough. One year ago I was in trouble with my teeth. A mix of age and embarrassment. I finally came to the point where I had no choice but to attend. I booked my appointment and to say I received complete professionalism is a understatement. I could write many lines of praise, but will keep it simple. Please don't hesitate!!! Make an appointment, be honest and you will not be judged whatsoever. The painless processes that are applied is certainly life changing. Huge thankyou to all the team at MDP. Thankyou. I finally smile with complete confidence once again!!!!

Excellent dental practice! My dentist is Dr Crowley who is absolutely brilliant. As an emergency, I booked an appointment with Dr Sharma who went above & beyond to ensure I trusted her and was comfortable with a different dentist. She did a fantastic and efficient job replacing my filling.The reception is also very friendly and professional. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

After years of not seeing a dentist due to criticisms, critiques and bad relationships with all the ones I've had prior I was sceptical going in but knew that my dental health would one day catch up to me. So I went just before I went off to university. my dentist was Dr Puneet Nagpal who was very kind and considerate after learning I haven't been for a checkup for quite some time and he went through everything very thoroughly but was gentle with the tools and his words, he wasn't condescending or patronising or putting any blame on me. He told me that I needed to have half a dozen or so fillings filled and I told him about my deadline as I was off to university by the end of the month and he was able to book me in the following week for 2 rounds of fillings. We also had other talks about personal life and how much sugar and drinks can affect my teeth and he went out of his way to google and search for things that I would like and made some suggestions. During the fillings I had to excuse my self a couple of times due to an excess of water filling my mouth and having difficulty breathing, luckily he understood gave me time to compose myself and settle back in and I was able to wear some headphones to help distract myself from the noise of the drilling and from the pain. All 3 times I went to visit him he went above and beyond any dental experience I've had before and has made me care much more about my dental hygiene even more so and has made me feel comfortable with going back to the dentists as I would dread it before. Dr Nagpal has been one of if not the kindest person who has looked after me in any sort of medical visit I've so often needed in my life, I could not recommend him enough.
