Are you experiencing problems due to missing natural teeth?

Dental Implants in Edinburgh - Abbeymount Dental CareIf you have missing natural teeth, you may be experiencing one or more of the following issues, including difficulties with chewing, speaking, and smiling, as well as bone loss, shifting of the remaining teeth, and a reduced quality of life.

If left unaddressed, missing teeth can result in further dental problems, such as gum disease and tooth decay, as well as a reduction in jawbone density and facial structure. Additionally, missing teeth can make a person feel self-conscious about their appearance, leading to social and psychological concerns such as anxiety and low self-esteem.

Dental implants are a permanent and effective solution for the problems caused by missing natural teeth. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime and improve both oral and mental health. Therefore, if you are experiencing problems due to missing natural teeth, dental implants can be an ideal solution for you.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a tiny, metal post that is put into the jawbone during surgery. It acts as an artificial tooth root and is used to replace one or more missing teeth. A crown, bridge, or denture is then placed on top of the implant to complete the restoration. Over time, the implant becomes firmly attached to the jawbone, creating a strong and stable base for the replacement teeth. Dental implants are a great option for restoring a natural-looking and functional smile, and they can also help to keep your other teeth and jawbone healthy. They’re a long-lasting and effective solution for replacing missing teeth.

The benefits of dental implants

Bespoke Dental Implants in Edinburgh - Abbeymount Dental

Dental implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options, such as bridges or dentures. Here are six key benefits of dental implants:

  1. Improved appearance – Dental implants closely resemble natural teeth and can be tailored to match the colour and shape of your existing teeth, resulting in an enhanced appearance and increased confidence.
  2. Improved speech – Unlike dentures, which can move around in the mouth, dental implants are securely anchored in the jawbone, providing greater clarity and confidence in speech.
  3. Improved comfort – Dental implants are a permanent solution and do not require adhesives or other products to hold them in place, making them more comfortable than other tooth replacement options.
  4. Improved ability to chew – Dental implants work like natural teeth, allowing you to consume your favourite foods without the fear of them slipping or falling out, improving your overall nutrition and enjoyment of food.
  5. Improved oral health – Dental implants do not necessitate the grinding down of adjacent teeth, as is the case with bridges, thus helping to protect the health of your remaining natural teeth and improve your overall oral health.
  6. Durability – With proper care, dental implants can endure for many years, if not a lifetime, making them a cost-effective long-term alternative to other tooth replacement options.

The procedure

The dental implant procedure is a comprehensive and meticulously executed process designed to replace missing teeth with artificial ones that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

  1. Initial Consultation: The journey begins with an initial consultation where you’ll meet with our experienced implantologist, Omar Al Latif. During this appointment, your oral health will be assessed, and a treatment plan will be tailored to your unique needs. X-rays and impressions may be taken to evaluate bone density and determine the best course of action.
  2. Implant Placement: The next step involves surgically placing the dental implant into the jawbone beneath the gum line. This titanium implant serves as the foundation for your new tooth. Local anaesthesia ensures you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
  3. Healing and Osseointegration: After implant placement, a healing period is required, typically lasting several weeks. During this time, the bone surrounding the implant gradually fuses with it in a process called osseointegration, providing a stable and strong foundation.
  4. Abutment Placement: Once osseointegration is complete, an abutment, a small connector post, is attached to the implant. This step is necessary to securely hold the artificial tooth or crown in place.
  5. Custom Restoration: Impressions of your teeth are taken to create a custom-made crown that matches your natural teeth in shape, size, and colour. This restoration will be attached to the abutment to complete the implant.
  6. Final Placement: The final dental crown is securely attached to the abutment, creating a seamless and natural-looking result. The implantologist ensures that your bite is comfortable and functional.
  7. Follow-up Care: After your dental implant is in place, regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor your progress and address any concerns. It’s crucial to maintain good oral hygiene and attend routine dental check-ups to ensure the longevity of your implant.

How long will my implants last? 

The lifespan of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including your oral hygiene habits, lifestyle factors, and the quality of the implant and restoration. With proper care and maintenance, however, dental implants can last for many years or even a lifetime.

The implant itself is typically made of biocompatible materials such as titanium or zirconia, which are designed to fuse with the surrounding bone in a process called osseointegration. This creates a strong, permanent foundation for the restoration, which is usually a crown, bridge, or denture.

The restoration may need to be replaced or repaired over time due to normal wear and tear, but the implant itself can last for many years. In fact, studies have shown that dental implants have a success rate of up to 95% over a 10-year period, and many patients have had their implants for 20 years or more.

To ensure the longevity of your dental implants, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing regularly and attending regular dental check-ups and cleanings. Avoiding smoking and maintaining a healthy diet can also help promote oral health and reduce the risk of implant failure.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is advantage of implants over other methods?

The most common alternatives to dental implants are denture and bridges. Getting a bridge requires attaching false teeth to your existing teeth. This involves filing or modifying the teeth on either side of missing teeth in order to support bridge which can have implication is future. Also, often require replacement which makes it more costly option over time. Dentures are false teeth attached to plastic or metal plate which are placed in placed in mouth and are removable. They are cumbersome, uncomfortable and limit your dietary intake. Also, with time they might wear or become loose fitted causing slippage and imprecise fit issues. Whereas dental implants are the permanent solution to missing teeth. They are comfortable, effective, aesthetically pleasing, look and behave just like natural tooth, do not impact surrounding teeth and less costly over long run.

How do I know if I’m suitable for dental implants?

A person who can undergo tooth extractions or bridgework can undergo dental implant treatment. The location and the amount of bone available in the implant area is normally the major factor to be considered for any case. Normally implants are suitable and best option for most cases but its best to have a consultation with our dentist to check for suitability and ask any questions you might have for the treatment.

Can I get dental implants on NHS?

Dental implants are typically not available through the NHS, as they are considered a cosmetic procedure. However, in some rare cases where the implants are deemed medically necessary, the NHS may cover the cost. It's best to consult with our dentist and NHS dental services for specific eligibility criteria and options available in your area.

How long does it take for the dental implant treatment?

Your dentist should be able to give you a rough estimate about time after your first consultation. Nowadays some false teeth are fitted as the same time as implants for some cases. Check with your dentist to see if it’s suitable for you. Normally the false teeth are fitted after 3-4 months after placing the implant. In some instances it might take longer due to complexity of the case but your dentist should be able to let you know about this during your treatment.

How do dental implants look?

They look exactly the same as your natural teeth.

Does dental Implant hurt?

It's a good idea to come and see us as soon as you can. If we need to extract a tooth before the implant, it's essential to do it delicately to preserve your own bone. If your dentist is experienced in this, that's fantastic! But if not, don't worry; we can handle the tooth removal at our surgery along with the implant placement. Just let us know what works best for you!

Implants are made from titanium. Bone has a natural affinity for titanium which enables it to grow around the implant effectively becoming part of your bone.

In general, most healthy individuals with good oral health are suitable candidates for dental implant treatment. However, a comprehensive dental evaluation is necessary to determine if you are an ideal candidate.

Our dentist will provide temporary tooth replacements during the healing period to ensure you don’t go without teeth. These can be removable dentures or temporary crowns.

After undergoing dental implant surgery, the initial recovery period usually spans a few days, during which you may encounter temporary swelling and discomfort. The complete healing and osseointegration process can extend over several months, allowing the implant to firmly integrate with the jawbone.

Although smoking can increase the risk of complications and hinder the healing process, smokers can still get dental implants. However, it is strongly advised to quit smoking or at least reduce smoking to increase the chances of successful implant integration.

There is no strict age limit for dental implant treatment. As long as you have good oral health and are suitable for the procedure, dental implants can be considered at any age.

Not every dental implant case requires a bone graft. It depends on the jawbone's condition and the specific implantation site. A comprehensive assessment by a dental professional will determine the necessity.

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, two popular options are dental bridges and dental implants. Both solutions offer their own set of benefits and considerations. The choice between a bridge and a dental implant depends on various factors, including your oral health, budget, and personal preferences. Consulting with a qualified dentist like us is crucial to determine the most suitable option tailored to your individual needs.

The decision for UK citizens to get dental implants from Turkey encompasses various pros and cons. On the positive side, Turkey often offers more affordable dental procedures, even when considering travel and accommodation. The country is home to numerous skilled dentists and modern clinics, and patients can combine the procedure with a leisurely holiday. However, the cons include potential risks like inconsistent regulations across clinics, communication barriers, and the complexity of managing aftercare from afar. Additionally, any complications or the need for further treatment can become logistically and financially challenging when dealing with overseas clinics. Click here for our opinions.
