Benefits of Implants...

An implant is like your natural tooth root; it even bonds with your bone. The crown attached to it s bespoke made using our latest scanning technique to blend in with your own teeth. Dr Osman is an Expert in this field.

If you have lost a single tooth, multiple teeth or all of your teeth, then a Dental Implant is often the best solution to replace it.

Loss of your natural teeth means you no longer have to face a lifetime of wearing dentures. A dental implant offers you a way to restore your smile. We can replace your missing teeth using dental implants. The function, strength and appearance of dental implants are as close as it is possible to get to natural teeth.

Types of Implant

 

If you’re missing a tooth, a dental implant can replace it permanently. Your dentist will surgically place the implant in an opening in your jawbone (find out more about the dental implant procedure). The implant acts like a new tooth root for the crown that will replace your lost tooth. You’ll have your tooth crown custom-made to look like your natural tooth. The crown attaches to your implant and fills the gap where your original tooth used to be.

From only £1,900

 

If you are in a hurry to have dental implants, or if you’ll find more lengthy treatment difficult, same day implants could be the answer. This technique means you could walk away with a beautiful, natural-looking smile after just 1 appointment.

Same Day Teeth is possible for both upper and lower teeth. A permanent tooth bridge is attached to tilting implants giving you fully functioning teeth straight away. The implants don’t affect the sinus and nerves. And, patients with bone loss won’t need a bone graft.

Advantages of same day implants

  • Fewer appointments
  • Lower cost

From only £3,000

 

When there are two or more teeth together that are being replaced we recommend the use of an implant bridge. Usually we can use two implants for this, one each end of the missing teeth and then a bridge in the middle. The bridge is fixed and permanent. Unlike with traditional bridges, the natural teeth that sit next to the missing teeth do not need to be prepared for crowns to support the bridge, as the support is provided by the dental implants.

From only £4,900

 

Some people struggle to adapt to dentures. And even seasoned denture wearers can experience problems such as:

  • Looseness and slipping
  • Pain or discomfort
  • Difficulty speaking and swallowing

Where teeth are missing, our jawbone recedes. As a result, over time dentures will grow loose and need adjusting. Denture implants stay in place. They will never embarrass you by falling out or cause painful gum abscesses.

Cost from £4,500- £8,500

 

If you’re missing all your teeth, you might think you’ll never find a solution that feels as good as your own teeth – until now. A full mouth reconstruction can give you back the look, feel and function of your own teeth. Experience a whole new you and a whole new smile.

Advantages of full mouth reconstruction

  • Feel like you again – Your replacement teeth are firmly anchored in your jawbone. After a short time getting used to them, they’ll feel just like your own teeth. You won’t have to take them out to clean them or go to bed. And they certainly won’t come out by accident.
  • Stay youthful – Dental implants stimulate your jawbone like natural teeth. So you’ll avoid bone loss that can happen with missing teeth. And you’ll remain youthful and fuller-faced.
  • Enjoy your food again – Your palate won’t be obstructed so you can taste your food properly again. And because your reconstructed teeth feel and function like your own, you can bite and chew without worrying.
  • Your teeth for life – Dental implants are as strong and stable as natural teeth. Proper care including regular brushing, flossing and regular checkups will keep them healthy for years, maybe even your lifetime.

Cost from £17,500 – £26,500

Important considerations for your Consultation

Upon your visit for consultation, you should ask the following Top 10 questions to find which Best Dental Implant Surgeon that suits your needs:

1. How long have you been performing this specific Dental Implant procedure?

It takes 10,000 hours to become an expert. Make sure the Surgeon is an expert in the procedure you are inquiring about.

2. How many times have you performed this procedure? How many in the past year?

Even if someone has been proficient in the past, if they have not kept up with it, they will be rusty; you don’t need them to use you for practice.

3. What are the risks and benefits of this procedure?

Find out will this procedure carry a risk or impact on my lifestyle.

4. Are there any other options I may have?

Some dentists will try and steer you to a procedure they like – Make sure it’s the right procedure for you!

5. How many of your patients had to replace, revise, or correct this procedure again?

If patients have to come back to have a procedure corrected frequently, the dentist is probably not an expert in that procedure.

6. Do I have any choices regarding performing the procedure via IV sedation, oral sedation, or with the help of an anesthesiologist so I do not feel anything?

Not everyone is comfortable in a dentist chair; if you face anxiety or resistance to normal dental anesthesia, sedation dentistry may be for you.

8. Do you have your own Master Technician who will hand craft my final crown to the colour and shape that suits me?

Any implant crown, bridge or veneer should be hand crafted to specific requirement that makes look as natural as possible.

9. Are there any further costs besides the costs of the procedure itself?

Being surprised by hidden cost is never going to make anyone happy!

10. How do I maintain my Dental implant investment?

Once you are fully satisfied, you want to ensure that you keep it that way for as long as possible. Knowing how to maintain your teeth after the procedure is critical.

Your Implant Journey

 

The first phase of your treatment will be implant placement. Our implant surgeon will apply a local anaesthetic and implant a titanium post into the jaw bone, in the location of the missing tooth. This procedure is quick – lasting between one and two hours – and relatively painless due to the local anaesthetic. You may experience a small amount of discomfort following the placement of the implant but this will subside and healing will occur relatively quickly.

 

Biological Integration, when the implant integrated with the bone, is usually expected to occur within eight – 12 weeks.  In a very small amount of cases, this integration may take up to a year. When the implant has integrated with the bone, it will provide a strong and stable platform for the new crown or bridge.

 

 

Once your implant integrates with the bone, we are then able to restore the implant. After taking moulds of the position of the implants, the final ‘teeth’ can be individually designed, made and cemented or screwed into the implant. Once in place, they will look, feel and function as a natural tooth.

Am I Suitable?

If you’ve lost one or more teeth due to injury, trauma or decay, and you’ve lost your confidence to smile or feel your teeth are holding you back, there’s no need to panic as Dental implants can help.

You’re certainly not alone if you’ve lost your confidence to smile and we can help you like we have helped many others before.

Dental Implants have especially been designed to make your life normal again and the greatest benefit of using Dental Implants is that you will not be able to notice that you ever lost your teeth to begin with.

Implants look exactly the same as your real teeth and they’ll enhance your chewing and speaking efficiency as well.

What If...

Below are common questions about dental implants. If you’d like more information, and to discuss your treatment, why not book a free consultation with our Treatment Coordinator. Simply call 01332 220623 for an appointment.

What are dental implants for?

You can use dental implants for:

  • Single tooth replacement
  • Replacing multiple teeth
  • Full mouth reconstruction
  • Stabilising dentures
Do dental implants look real?

Implants look very like natural teeth. In fact, you probably won’t notice the difference. And neither will anyone else. They function like natural teeth too, so you can eat just as you did before you lost your teeth.

How long do dental implants take?

Once the dental implants have been placed it usually takes around 4-6 months to heal.

Dental implants: how much fo they cost?

Our dental implants start from £2200 for a single dental implant including abutment and crown, you can find our full list of dental implant costs here.

Will dental implants damage my teeth?

Bone loss is something that happens when you’ve had missing teeth for any length of time. It can cause the shape of your face to change and affect how you speak. Implants reduce bone loss. And, by helping to spread the force of biting and chewing evenly, implants can also preserve your remaining teeth.

Do dental implants hurt?

During your dental implant surgery you will be under local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain during the process.  As with all surgery, there will be some discomfort afterwards, however, this should be manageable with painkillers.

Protect your investment with an Annual Implant Examination

Dental implants are a major investment, and with proper care they can last a lifetime.

Careful monitoring and early intervention can usually prevent minor implant complications from becoming serious or irreversible. The after-care philosophy of implant placement should follow the adage: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you see Implant Dentist annually and to reduce the risk of gum infection (peri-implantitis), it has been recommended to see hygienist every four to six months and using air floss. However, if you are a smoker and or have a medical condition which reduced your immunity, then it is recommended that you see hygienist every three to four months. Their role is to remove tartar/plaque (bacterial accumulation) and disinfect the area to prevent infections around implants.

What will happen during my annual implant examination?

The Implant Dentist will assess clinical signs of:

  • Inflammation, pus,
  • Comprehensive gum examination to measure the pocket depth of the gum around the implant
  • Biting trauma (Special biting paper is used to assess you bite), which are very important to the status and durability of the dental implant or prosthesis (crowns or Bridge). 
  • Check and compare x-rays annually,
  • Check all the components that are attached to the implants are functioning properly.
How often should I see the hygienist?

Generally, it is advisable to see a hygienist every 4-6 months for maintenance of your gum. However, if are a smoker or in the past had gum disease OR susceptible to gum disease OR your gums bleed during your routine 6 monthly gum examination then the recommended time scale to see hygienist will be changed to every 3-4 months. This is due to your exaggerated gum reaction to small amount of tartar. This is supported by article from Darcey et al (2011). Therefore, it has been recommended to see hygienist every three months and use Tepe or Oral irrigators.

Is it compulsory to have my implants checked annually?

It is your responsibility to make sure that your implants are checked yearly / annually by your Dentist or Implant Dentist. Please do ask your dentist to see if they are competent and comfortable maintaining your dental implants.

If you do not attend your Hygienist appointment and Annual Implant Examination , this will VOID your Guarantee and Warranty.
