After this, our dentists will carry out a thorough physical examination of your mouth to assess your suitability for dental implants in Buckinghamshire. Treatment options and costs are then mapped out for our patients before the treatment begins.
Placing of your dental implants
Dental implant placement is a surgical procedure and is carried out under local anesthetic or IV sedation. Your implants will be inserted carefully and painlessly directly into your jaw. The implants themselves are made from titanium, which fuses seamlessly with your body’s bone and tissues, to create a stable and strong foundation that will last many years.
Fitting the replacement teeth
Once the implant has fused with the bone, the implants are uncovered and abutments, which are the posts on which the replacement teeth will rest, are fitted. An impression will then be taken of your gum and abutments. This is then sent to dental lab for your prosthetic teeth to be created. Once your implants have healed after two to three months, your replacement teeth are attached to the abutment and your dental implants in Buckinghamshire will be complete.
After two weeks, you will be invited for a review, just to confirm that everything is okay. Our dentists will look to see if there is any movement, ensure that you are not experiencing any pain and make sure you are comfortable with your new teeth.
Dental implants perform much like natural teeth and require all the same cleaning processes. A bonus of dental implants is that they cannot get cavities, so in some ways are easier to maintain. Will regular check-ups and a good oral health routine, your dental implants will last many years.Back to Blog
