A long lasting solution for missing teeth and unstable dentures
After losing one, or multiple, teeth, it can be tempting to ignore the problem, instead leaving yourself with a gap in your smile. Studies are now proving, however, that doing so puts teeth left at either side of the gap at a significantly higher risk of problems such as decay and the need for further treatment. This is partly because, where an absence is left in your smile, adjacent teeth will often begin to drift into the newly available space, making them significantly more difficult to clean. Dental implants can prevent this drift from occurring, whilst also helping to maintain bone support in your mouth. They can, therefore, bring major long-term benefits to your teeth and their stability. Read on to find out more about tooth implants in Stafford.
Dental implants are titanium screws that are permanently anchored to your jawbone in order to provide a solid foundation for one, or more, natural-looking, colour-matched replacement teeth. Titanium is an ideal material for dental implants because of its superior strength, light weight, and biocompatibility, as well as its history of success in the field of medical joint replacement. The dental implant procedure is a minor surgical procedure carried out at our practice in Staffordshire using Local Anaesthetic, with sedation options also available. Amit and the team are highly trained and experienced in the placement and restoration of dental implants, so you can rest assured you are in safe hands when receiving dental implants in Stafford

Contrary to what you might think, conventional dentures are not always cost-effective.
The initial layout for dental implant treatment will vary on how many tooth implants are needed and if bone augmentation is required. Other factors include the surgery itself, lab work, the prosthesis and the dentist’s and dental technician’s fees.
A cost plan will be developed only when all of these aspects have been addressed, and in some cases, dental implants may well be more economical in the long term.
Dental implants in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, are generally inserted under local anaesthetic to help minimise discomfort. If you experience any doubts about the condition of the implant site after the procedure, please make sure to let us know! We can place dental implants using sedation if required.
It is possible to insert dental implants as soon as the jaw has stopped growing. Therefore, in young patients, dental implants can only be placed once their jaw bones are fully developed. At the other end of the spectrum, there is no age limit, given, of course, that the patient does not display any significant medical risk factors. This will be evaluated by us during your consultation in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire.
After insertion of your dental implant, the bonding process (osseointegration) takes about 6-8 weeks.
In this time, the dental implant reaches the stability needed for it to bear weight like a natural tooth. As always, healing times can vary depending on the individual condition and indication.
By coming along to see us at our Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire based dental practice every 6 months to ensure your dental implants are maintained. If you have been referred to us from another practice or usually see another dentist we recommend you see us once a year. It is important that these checks are done by us so that if any problems did arise we could deal with them quickly. In addition to this we also recommend;
Booking to see our hygienist- she will provide you with the skills, tools and techniques to ensure that your dental implant is properly cared for at home to avoid any problems. She will recommend brushes and products that will help keep the area clean as well as providing you with regular professional cleaning.
Implant-retained denture wearers- we also recommend seeing one of our team yearly to check your dental implants are healthy. You will also have to have the connections in the denture replaced regularly as these will degrade over time.
