Full mouth dental implants is an alternative to tooth loss offered at our dental clinic in East Dulwich, London. The need for dental implants has increased dramatically over the recent years as the new advances in dentistry and in teeth implants field have revolutionised the treatments available to patients. The new procedures can address your needs much more effectively and result in improved self-confidence.
Loss of one or more teeth not only damages your confidence, but can cause further dental complications as it puts neighbouring teeth on strain. It causes gradual loss of gum and bone, which is an irreplaceable effect. Dental implants will reduce strain from neighbouring teeth, protect the remaining bone, provide you with better biting force, and restore your smile and confidence.
A dental implant is a titanium screw and placed into the jawbone for replacing tooth root when it fails to function properly. If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. However, if you are missing all the teeth, an implant-supported full denture or bridge can help in replacing them. Dental implants are used for supporting one or more false teeth. It replaces your lost natural teeth and some of its roots.
You will be provided with a consultation session at our clinic, which aims to examine your teeth, gum and jaw in details. Use will be made of X-rays to further analyse the status of your oral health. The procedure is comprised of three stages; implant placement, implant biological integration and implant restoration stages. In the first stage of the procedure a titanium implant is placed into the jaw, which may cause mild discomfort but will ease off. The implant will integrate with the jaw bone over time to provide the necessary support for later stages of the procedure. This biological integration phase may take up to 12 weeks in most cases and up to a year in very rare cases. In the next stage a crown or bridge will be coupled onto the post to create the smile you desire. We apply this procedure either for single tooth implants or full mouth dental implants.
Your dental surgeon will provide you a rough estimation about the time before the treatment begins. Some false teeth might be fitted at the same time as implants which are known as immediate implants. You may talk to the expert and know if this is the suitable solution for your case. The false teeth are usually fitted within 3 to 4 months after the implants are inserted. Sometimes, the treatment might require a longer time and your dentist will tell you about your treatment time.
Your dental practitioner will give you necessary instructions on how you will look after the implant surgery is done. They might give you some painkillers to help you overcome the pain and discomfort or ensure you have them at home to take for the next few days.
The cost of the treatment is a bit more than the cost associated with conventional dental treatments such as bridges and crowns. Implants are usually cost-effective and suitable option overtime if you take proper care of them. Visit our clinic to avail the offer of a monthly payment scheme. You will only have to pay £42.00 per month to get dental implants treatment done with us.
