The dental implant procedure

Wednesday, July 26, 2017 Chris Wood

The dental implant procedure (http://www.chriswooddentalimplants.co.uk/dental-implant-procedure) is made up of a number of stages, which will result in the patient having a natural looking tooth where they used to have a gap.

Dental implants are generally recognised as the modern way to replace failing or missing teeth. Undoubtedly, success rates are high, but as with any procedure involving a medical device, complications are a possibility. How successfully cases with implant complications are resolved will depend on the experience and expertise of your implant dentist. Dental implant complications can be categorised into three groups: 1. Early failure cause ..

We are now able to provide our patients with an innovative technique that allows for the creation of durable and functioning teeth attached to implants on the same day that the implants are placed.

Using implants to stabilise dentures

Monday, April 10, 2017 Chris Wood

Do you lack self- confidence because of loose dentures? Dental implants could be the solution for you! Many denture wearers often complain of discomfort when eating and chewing, as they feel their dentures are loose in their mouth. In addition to this, an individual’s self-confidence is often compromised as they worry that their dentures may move when smiling or speaking. Although denture fixatives do help hold the denture in position,  ..

Why you should have your dental implants fitted in the UK

Wednesday, March 01, 2017 Chris Wood

In March last year we published a blog called ‘Why dental implants in the UK and not abroad?’ We briefly covered the main reasons why patients should be having their dental implants fitted in the UK, rather than abroad. We still feel very strongly about the subject and thought we should address two more issues with dental tourism. What happens when your dental implant surgery goes wrong once back in the UK? In recent months, we have s ..

People are often nervous about the thought of a dental implant bridge and what the process entails. We can assure you they are a safe and very effective treatment. A dental implant bridge is similar to a regular bridge, but instead of being supported by your natural teeth, it is supported by implants instead. Previous patients have told us the process is completely worth it, as they feel like it’s 'the next best thing to your natural teeth.' - F.Hart

Dental Implants… Ouch?

Tuesday, December 20, 2016 Chris Wood

Dental implants can make dramatic changes to peoples’ lives. But, even though they might have heard of them, we know that people can be afraid to get in touch and take the first step. They’re afraid of how much they're going to hurt… both physically and financially. Does getting dental implants hurt? Certainly no more than any other dental procedure! Implants take place under local anaesthetic, in a relaxing, calm and safe environm ..

Wednesday, November 16, 2016 Chris Wood

If you have lost a tooth due to a sports injury, oral health complications or gum disease, a single tooth implant could be the best solution for you. The implant is designed to replace a missing tooth and its root, providing the most natural appearance and function of all tooth replacement methods.

bridges are better than dentures", "metaDescription": "", "body": "

When you have lost some of your teeth it can cause practical problems, such as making it harder to chew, as well as causing confidence issues, making you\n feel self-conscious when talking or smiling.

\n

\n
\n

\n

It is for these reasons that many people like to find a solution, but with a variety of options, such as dental implant bridges and dentures available,\n it can be difficult deciding which one is best for you.\n
\n

\n

We have put together some reasons why dental implant bridges are better than dentures, which we hope will help!

\n

They feel natural

\n

If you need to have something to replace missing teeth, you want it to feel natural so that you can forget that it is there and resume eating, talking,\n and smiling like you always have done.

\n

A dental implant bridge is far better than dentures for this reason, as dentures can move or dislodge, plus they often feel uncomfortable and take some\n time to get used to, which dental implant bridges don’t.

\n

Easy to maintain

\n

The way that dentures are designed means that they need replacing every five to seven years, which, once again, doesn’t help you to forget that you have\n missing teeth.

\n

They also require some additional cleaning to natural teeth, so can be a bit of a nuisance if you’re looking for a simple solution.

\n

A dental implant bridge could last for a lifetime if it is taken care of, and all you need to do is look after it like you do your natural teeth by brushing\n them twice a day and cleaning effectively between your teeth.

\n

Prevent further deterioration

\n

A dental implant bridge can prevent further deterioration of the jawbone as it is made from titanium, which is both strong and durable.

\n

Unfortunately, dentures do not offer the same benefit, and will not protect your jawbone in the same way as a dental implant bridge.

\n

We hope that these benefits have helped you to see how dental implant bridges are better than dentures, and would be happy to answer any questions that\n you have about the procedure that we offer. Just contact us and we would love to help.

\n

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss the procedure in more detail, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The dental implant procedure is made up of a number of stages,\n which will result in the patient having a natural looking tooth where they used to have a gap.

\n

The first stage is a consultation, where the patient can discuss their requirements and any concerns that they may have with the person who will be carrying\n out the surgery.

This allows the patient to gather information about what would be suitable for them, the benefits they could gain from having a dental implant and the\n surgeon can get the details required to make an informed plan, which may include x-rays, models and tooth mock-ups.

\n

Once a treatment plan has been discussed, and a quote has been agreed, the surgery can take place as long as the patient is completely happy with the dental\n implant procedure and knows what it entails.

\n

The dental implant procedure allows the surgeon to mount replacement teeth in the mouth using a titanium post, which is positioned below the gum line,\n and acts like a tooth root. Once the post has been implanted, it is left to fuse with the bone before the next stage.

\n

The following part of the dental implant procedure sees the addition of an abutment, usually made of titanium, which is attached to the implant via a screw.\n A temporary crown, which is softer than the permanent one so it aids the healing process, is sometimes provided while the permanent crown is made using\n a model of the patient’s teeth and gum tissue.

\n

When the permanent crown has been created, it will be attached to the abutment, and will stay fixed in the mouth, unlike dentures. It will look, feel and\n function like a natural tooth.

\n

What happens after the dental implant procedure?

\n

Following the completion of the dental implant procedure, time is taken to discuss the important topic of implant care. The most effective methods of cleaning\n and maintenance of a healthy implant will be explained. A review appointment will be recommended to check the health of the implant and the effectiveness\n of the patients care regime.

Have you decided to have dental implants? If you’ve carried out as much research as possible and still think that it is the right choice for you might\n now be wondering about the costs of dental implants.

\n

As with any procedure, one of the biggest concerns once you have decided on what you would like to have done is the associated costs. There is no doubt\n that the money spent on your dental implants will be well worth it.

\n

The cost of dental implants

\n

A single dental implant starts at £2,200 and a full arch of teeth can cost £10,000. Your initial consultation will be free and we have 0% finance deals\n available. Find out more about the cost of dental implants.\n

\n

Dental implants vs conventional treatments

\n

Despite lasting longer, and being easier to maintain, the cost of dental implants is actually not much more than you would pay for more conventional dental treatments, such as dentures and bridges. So, it actually works out to be\n far more cost-effective in the long run.

\n

In addition to the upfront dental implant cost, you also need to consider aftercare. However, as long as you look after your dental implant with proper\n cleaning, and attend all follow-up checks, you won’t actually need to spend much more to keep your implants healthy.

\n

Another thing to consider is the difference that a dental implant will make to your life, and weighing up what that will be worth to you in terms of monetary\n value. We have received plenty of feedback to say how dental implants have improved people’s lives – it’s hard to put a price on that feeling.

Dental implants are generally recognised as the modern way to replace failing or missing teeth. Undoubtedly, success rates are high, but as with any procedure\n involving a medical device, complications are a possibility. How successfully cases with implant complications are resolved will depend on the experience\n and expertise of your implant dentist.\n

\n

Dental implant complications can be categorised into three groups:

\"remedial\n

1. Early failure caused by wound infection equates to approximately 1% of complications. The infection rate can be minimised by employing correct surgical\n protocols, using antibiotics responsibly and careful patient selection and preparation.
\n 2. Late failure, or peri-implant disease, is caused by progressive failure of the bone attachment to the implant surface. At Chris Wood Dental Implant Solutions,\n we are constantly engaged in the application of new technologies to treat this cause of failure.
\n 3. Complications involving the structure of the teeth being supported by dental implants. The mouth is a very challenging environment and all types of\n tooth restoration are subject to wear and tear.
\n

\n

As our practice is solely dedicated to the delivery of dental implant solutions, we are best placed to deal with complications, should they arise; providing remedial dental implant treatment.\n Our infection rate is exceptionally low (less than 0.25%) and our failure rate is also well below the industry norm (1%). We are achieving great success\n with innovative treatments for peri-implant disease.

\n

What to do if you have dental implant complications

\n

Should you be unfortunate enough to experience an implant failure within the first 5 years, the cost of remedial dental implant treatment will be covered\n by us (excluding implant components). Any failure of the implant supported tooth is covered by a 5-year laboratory guarantee.

\n

If you have gone abroad for your dental implants or are unhappy with the dentist that fitted your implants, we would be happy to support you and give you\n some advice. Remedial dental implant treatment should be provided by a specialist in the field and that we most certainly are.

At Chris Wood Dental Implant Solutions, we use a process referred to as ‘teeth in a day’. We are now able to provide our patients with an innovative technique\n that allows for the creation of durable and functioning teeth attached to implants on the same day that the implants are placed.

\n

How does the procedure work?

\n

Initially patients are screened with a low radiation cone beam CT scan to test their suitability for the teeth in a day treatment. Following this, the implants are positioned and a titanium framework is fabricated and fixed to the implants. This framework provides rigid stability\n for the implants at the same time as supporting the tooth restoration and allowing immediate function and tooth replacement.

\n

What are the advantages of ‘teeth in a day’?

\n

The main advantage of undergoing the ‘teeth in a day’ process is the significant reduction in treatment time and eradication of the need to wear a potentially\n uncomfortable and possibly embarrassing temporary denture.

\n

What do our patients think?

\n

This month we have been able to bring a smile back to a patient who had struggled to wear a denture so much that he preferred to face the world without\n teeth!\n
We suggested he consider the ‘teeth in a day’ solution as we felt this would appeal to him on the grounds that it would immediately resolve a long-term\n problem of confidence and reduce the number of visits he would need to make to the practice, as he lived far away.

\n

With the aid of a highly skilled dental technician providing expert technical support throughout the procedure and their expert eye to ensure a natural\n appearance was achieved, the patient left the surgery delighted.\n
Our patient has kindly allowed us to share before and after images of his surgery as he was so pleased with his final result (please see below).

Do you lack self- confidence because of loose dentures? Dental implants could be the solution for you!

\n

Many denture wearers often complain of discomfort when eating and chewing, as they feel their dentures are loose in their mouth. In addition to this, an\n individual’s self-confidence is often compromised as they worry that their dentures may move when smiling or speaking. Although denture fixatives do\n help hold the denture in position, the paste can be hard to apply and a messy process. If these daily struggles are something you can relate to then\n your best option could be to stabilise your denture with an implant retained solution.

\"Dental\n

How do dental implants help stabilise dentures?

\n

It is possible to use just a small number of dental implants to securely fix your denture in place, using an advanced\n treatment known as the mini or denture implant.

\n

The implant is placed where there is sufficient bone. Once integrated in the jaw; small retaining elements, which are similar to a ‘press stud’, are attached\n to the implant and used to hold the denture in place.

\n

By undergoing a simple denture stabilisation technique your life can be transformed, as your confidence will once again be restored.

\n

Is the implant denture stabilisation technique expensive?

\n

When evaluating the cost of the treatment, it is important to weigh up the long-term benefits of the solution. An implant retained denture provides such\n superior comfort and confidence that our patients regularly say they wish they had done it sooner.

\n

At Chris Wood Dental Implant Solutions there are two alternative options of treatments for you to choose from. The first includes creating a custom-made\n denture to accompany the placed implants or alternatively you could opt for the more cost effective solution known as the ‘mini-implant’ which is used\n in conjunction with your existing dentures.

\n

The latter involves a simple surgery where your existing denture is modified to incorporate the retaining elements of the implant.

\n

In March last year we published a blog called ‘Why dental implants in the UK and not abroad?’ We briefly covered the main reasons why patients should be\n having their dental implants fitted in the UK, rather than abroad.

\"why\n

We still feel very strongly about the subject and thought we should address two more issues with dental tourism.

\n

What happens when your dental implant surgery goes wrong once back in the UK?

\n

In recent months, we have seen an increase in the numbers of implant patients seeking our expertise for remedial treatment when their dental implants have\n developed complications. When complications arise, remedial treatments can be time consuming, technically demanding and therefore quite expensive for\n you.

\n

You should ask yourself, if you were unfortunate enough to be one of the patients who develop complications, how would they be remedied if your implant\n practitioners were overseas? A growing proportion of the corrective cases we have treated at Chris Wood Dental Implant Solutions have been dental implants\n placed overseas as examples of dental tourism in Asia and Eastern Europe.

\n

Success rates for dental implant treatments in the UK remains very high with our own practices’ current statistics showing a 99% success rate over a 12-year\n period.

\n

Clear communication with dental implants in the UK

\n

Another key factor when opting for dental implants in the UK is the communication process involved.

\n

Individuals who seek treatment abroad often struggle with the language barrier placed between themselves and the Implantologist. By having your implants\n done in the UK, you can guarantee clear communication and efficient support if anything was to go wrong.

\n

With a tailor-made plan for all of his patients, Chris is able to talk to each individual on a personal level about the implant process specifically adapted\n for their needs.

\n

When opting for dental implants in the UK, it is important to consider that although the initial cost of treatment may be higher than what you would pay\n abroad, the quality of materials, the longevity, success rate and aftercare of the implant can be assured at our practice.

People are often nervous about the thought of a dental implant bridge and what the process entails. We can assure you they are a safe and very effective\n treatment. A dental implant bridge is similar to a regular\n bridge, but instead of being supported by your natural teeth, it is supported by implants instead. Previous patients have told us the process is completely\n worth it, as they feel like it’s 'the next best thing to your natural teeth.' - F.Hart

\n\"dental\n

How does the process work?

\n

In some cases, there isn’t enough jawbone to support several dental implants. In this instance a dental implant bridge proves most beneficial, as we are\n able to place a single tooth implant either side of the missing space, on which we then place the dental implant bridge.

\n

Do you get discomfort from wearing a denture?

\n

When comparing traditional dentures to that of a dental implant bridge, often the latter proves to be more favourable. It involves a process whereby the\n implant is permanently fixed to your mouth. This mean you no longer have to worry about a wobbly denture and the discomfort that wearing one brings. 

\n

Just think of the time and hassle you can save yourself by opting for a dental implant bridge. They don’t need to be removed for cleaning and once secured,\n you can feel confident knowing you can chew and speak with ease, as if they were your real teeth!

\n

Will it protect my remaining healthy teeth?

\n

If you have lost one or more of your chewing teeth, you may feel it becomes harder to bite properly. As a result, you unavoidably start using your front\n teeth to counteract this.

\n

By opting for a dental implant bridge, you can protect your remaining healthy teeth, as it re-establishes the balance of the chewing function. So not only\n are you replacing the teeth you have lost with something that feels real, you are also protecting the remaining healthy teeth too - bonus!

Dental implants can make dramatic changes to peoples’ lives. But, even though they might have heard of them, we know that people can be afraid to get in\n touch and take the first step. They’re afraid of how much they're going to hurt… both physically and financially.

\"dentl\n

Does getting dental implants hurt?

\n

Certainly no more than any other dental procedure! Implants take place under local anaesthetic, in a relaxing, calm and safe environment. Plus, with us,\n you have the reassurance that you’re in safe hands. After all, Chris has 32 years unparalleled experience, and a client base to confirm it.

\n

Are dental implants worth it?

\n

Absolutely! Patients tell us that implants have been a life changing experience; “In fact now everyone compliments me on my teeth” (Mr. D).\n

\n

Alternative dental procedures like dentures can provide a quick solution to missing teeth, but in the long term can cause more damage than good. They can\n actually increase deterioration in the jaw and the remaining healthy gum. With a dental implant, you no longer have to worry about these factors. Implants\n look much more natural, and most importantly feel more comfortable. It’s a bit like going from wearing daily disposable contact lenses to having an\n eye-correction procedure, and never having to think about wearing glasses again.

\n

How much do dental implants cost?

\n

It’s not just about the upfront cost, but also about weighing up the continuing benefits, both health wise and financially. An implant requires minimal\n maintenance (other than thorough cleaning) and has superior durability. So, you’re minimising long-term costs compared to other dental solutions like\n dentures and bridges.

\n

Some patients pay the equivalent of a weekend away, others the price of a luxurious honeymoon. Whatever the solution for them, they know they’ve got something\n that will last. At Chris Wood Dental Implant Solutions, we use the highest quality materials and most contemporary methods of surgery to ensure our\n patients feel the standard of care they receive far outweighs the cost.

\n

Opting for a dental implant procedure can be described as an investing in your future dental health. It can provide patients with a new lease of life in\n such a short period of time.

If you have lost a tooth due to a sports injury, oral health complications or gum disease, a single tooth implant could be the best solution for you. The\n implant is designed to replace a missing tooth and its root, providing the most natural appearance and function of all tooth replacement methods.

\n

Advantages of single tooth implants

\"single\n

The main advantage of opting for a single tooth implant is\n that it does not impact on any of your neighbouring teeth, ensuring their wellbeing is maintained. As the implant replaces both the natural tooth and\n the root, it also allows for the bone in the gums to be better preserved. The implant integrates with the jawbone, keeping the bone intact and ultimately\n healthier.

\n

When a natural tooth is missing, it can lead to tipped, overcrowded, further tooth loss or the loss of chewing function; resulting in an array of further\n problems. A single tooth implant will restore the mouth’s natural function and increase oral comfort. Because the implant replicates your natural missing\n tooth, aesthetically you will not be able to tell the difference, providing you with the confidence you need to be able to smile again.

\n

A single tooth implant is permanently fixed into place in the mouth and it can be cared for in the same way as your other remaining teeth; with thorough\n brushing and cleaning the spaces between your teeth. The single tooth implant is kept in place with a stable foundation, allowing for natural comfort\n whilst eating and speaking.

\n

Dental implant procedures are renowned for their success and longevity. Having a single tooth implant could not only help to increase your confidence from\n an aesthetic point of view, it could also be the key to improving your overall oral health. Individual teeth implants can restore the mouth’s natural\n function, previously hindered missing a tooth.
