Dental Implants By
Wyndham Dental

 

Dental implants can help restore confidence in your smile by making quick work of all those missing gaps or broken teeth. A dental implant is a titanium root that provides the foundation for a porcelain imitation of a tooth. Implants are one of the simplest and easiest long-term solutions to replace problematic or missing teeth.

This is a surgical procedure that is minimally invasive so you can expect just a bit of soreness around the site. Your recovery time will vary on the scope of your case. For example, you may need single or multiple implants. Made of titanium alloy, our jawbones respond well to the implant and eventually fuse with it in order to act as a stable base for the tooth to come.

Do You Need Dental Implants?

There are several consequences to not replacing a lost tooth. Mainly, your jawbone can deteriorate due to the loss of pressure. So your dental implants will help support a healthy bite that keeps your teeth in place, while preventing any deterioration. It can drastically help with how confident you feel about your smile too! You’ll be able to smile without a worry in the world about how your teeth look.

Smile with Confidence Again.

  • Eating and chewing are more natural

The Process for Dental Implant Surgery

The process of getting a dental implant occurs in stages:

  1. Firstly, the assessment and planning will take place. In order to analyze the condition of your mouth, x-rays will be carried out and a treatment plan will be formed.
  2. If your jawbone is too thin or soft, a bone grafting might be in order. This is where a section of bone is taken and grafted on to your jawbone. This step, if necessary, will require a few months of healing before moving on to allow the bone to bond to your jawbone.
  3. In a minor surgical procedure, your dental implant will be placed into your bone. This site is usually left for up to 7 months to recover and for the implant to successfully fuse with your jawbone.
  4. Once fused, a temporary healing collar will be placed to help your gum tissues heal correctly. This is usually kept in for at least 10 to 14 days before proceeding to the next stage.
  5. Following which, the abutment is screwed into the implant in order to provide more support for the crown to come. Your healing collar/temporary crown will still be in place, allowing your tissues to heal for a period of 4 to 6 weeks.
  6. The final step will have your permanent crown cemented into the abutment and you’re done!

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

The cost of a dental implant usually varies according to several factors including how many teeth you need replaced and if other dental treatments are required prior to getting implants. Typically, however, you can expect the cost to range from $3000 to $7000 per implant. Upon your appointment and individual assessment of your case, we can give you a fixed cost.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

If taken care of well enough, your dental implants can last for as long as 15 years or more! They don’t necessarily require any specific after-care routines. You just need to follow the right oral hygiene habits, like proper brushing and flossing. Our dentists may also recommend an antimicrobial rinse to provide extra protection against plaque. It’s also vital that you follow through on regular checkups to prevent any infections or other dental conditions.

Do You Qualify for Dental Implants?

Not all patients are suitable for implant placement as there are a few pre-requisites. There must be an adequate width and height of bone in the area of interest and there needs to be healthy gums and good oral hygiene.

There are also a few health conditions which demand more care and can present as a difficulty in implant placement, such as smoking, diabetes and osteoporosis. However, having one of these conditions does not mean you cannot have an implant – it just means that you need a thorough consultation with your GP and your dentist to make sure that you have the best outcome and that the advantages of implant placement outweighs the risks.
