The Park Practice - Dental Clinic

Dental Implants

Dental Implants are now the number one choice for replacing missing or failing teeth. Implants can be use to replace single , multiple or , in some cases, all the teeth.

At The Park Practice we have been restoring implants for over 10 years. If you think an implant might be a treatment option that you require please make an appointment with one our dentists to discuss your situation and we will ensure that you have plenty of information to help make the decision easier.

 

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

The implants are actually small titanium posts that are secured into a patient’s jawbone where there are missing teeth. Once secured, the bone gradually integrates  with the titanium posts, thereby providing a very secure foundation for artificial teeth.

 

Is my mouth  suitable for dental implants?

There are many different situations that are suitable for implants . You might have lost a tooth to trauma , either playing sport or the result of an accident .

Maybe a back tooth was treated when you were young and now has deteriorated to such an extent that it has to be removed .

Or you are in a situation where several teeth are missing after decay of gum health issues.

Some patients have had complex dental situations and had lost all teeth in their upper or lower arch

All of the above scenarios can be assessed for the suitability of having implants placed.

We are very passionate about patients having the best gum health and we find that when patients have made a decision about having implants they are very motivated to keep their mouths healthy .

There are very few situations where implants can not be a good clinical option.

 

Implants are great for restoring function and your smile

 

The dental implant process

We have a couple of very talented dentists ,  to choose from , who will place your dental implant. Then after the appropriate healing period to allow the implant to integrate with your jaw bone we will restore the implant with an abutment which attaches into the implant and then place the  crown or bridge which will give the best aesthetic  result and strongest for your bite.

Initial Stage :   At your  consultation, we’ll discuss all of the possible alternatives and assess the feasibility of providing implant treatment. This will allow  you to make the best decision for your dental health.

   We’ll book you in for an appointment for x-rays and, if required, a CT scan. This information helps us to assess your bone density and whether you may need additional treatment. A fully comprehensive treatment plan will be provided so all detail is clear as to what you are committing to.

Step 1 :  If you decide this is the best option for you the appointment will be arranged to place the implant.   Your implants will be put in place under sterile conditions by the  dental implant surgeon. Implant placement is carried out under a local anaesthetic. The time this takes depends on the number of implants you are having but should take no longer than 2 hours.

Step 2 : The healing period - many patients can heal very quickly, you will be given after care instructions . Most patients do not find the process to be debilitating and are able to return to work the following day , this is due to the surgery being  carried out so precisely .

In most cases it is often suggested that a period of three months or more should be allowed for the implant to fully integrate . During this time, you can wear a simple adhesive bridge or provisional partial plate  to cover the implants.

Step 3 :  Once your titanium posts have healed and started to integrate we will schedule your appointments for the restoration phase. Restorative options include dental crowns, dentures and bridges. Crowns are made to match the colour of your natural teeth and can be made from either porcelain or ceramic. Bridges are either single or multiple artificial teeth which are secured by clipping onto the natural teeth on either side. Dentures can also be clipped onto your dental implants.

Afterwards:   Once you have your beautiful new teeth you need to maintain them. We’ll give you tips on how to clean thoroughly around your implants. Book in for regular appointments so that we can check the health of your soft tissue, bone levels and integrity of your restoration. You have invested in yourself so we ask that you keep up a great Oral Hygiene regime and have regular contact with our dental health team .

Case Study

Patient BM (Implants)

Background

Patient had struggled chewing for years due to having several  teeth missing. He  didn't realise how life-changing  restoring these areas with implants could be. The spaces in the upper left had also resulted in becoming more self-conscious when smiling . 

 

What We Did

Treatment was carefully planned and the missing teeth had implants placed over a period of time, not all at once. 

Individual implants took  3-4 months to integrate with the surrounding bone. These were then ready to have crowns or bridges placed to restore function and improve chewing and balsance to the bite. We also restored the aesthetics and gave the patient the smile he was looking for. 

Feedback

"I had spent a few years with my mouth causing me problems and had lost a few teeth. My confidence was low but a friend recommended me to The Park Practice and I can't thank the team enough for how they have restored my teeth and allowed me to smile in photos again! I was very nervous before about dental treatment but having had several implants placed , nerves are now a thing of the past! "
