Implants are made to replace your tooth root with a specially designed metal device. This device bonds with your bone over time, becoming part of your body. Once the implant has bonded to your jaw bone, an abutment is added which allows a prosthetic tooth, bridge or set of dentures to be attached.
With some treatment types, like All-On-4 you are able to go home with a new set of teeth on the day you have the implants placed.
If you are interested in dental implants you need to first come in and see us for a consultation. We will be able to discuss your worries, current dental condition and your ultimate smile goals. We’ll also take a look at your mouth, jaw and we might take some X-rays and scans to determine your bone levels.
If you have low bone density we may recommend certain treatments like bone grafts and sinus lifts which can increase your suitability for implant treatment.
On the day of treatment we will place a local anaesthetic to numb the area we are treating, and provide sedation if that has been pre-arranged.
Using precise measurements and plans, we will then place your implants and temporary dental prosthetics if that is part of your treatment plan. You will then go home with a thorough aftercare plan to ensure you are able to care for your implants as well as possible.
During the healing stage of the process you will have to wait a few months whilst the bone and implant fuse.
Now the implant has fused with your jaw bone we can place your permanent, bespoke prosthetics. We can place individual crowns, bridges and dentures depending on the type of treatment you are having.
Following the treatment we will recommend regular check-ups, and hygienist appointments with White Dental to boost the longevity of your implants.
Our friendly and knowledgeable team would love to discuss how we can help you.
