Looking for a way to close that gap in your smile?dentist-in-brent

When you come to the Angel Dental Implant Centre, our dentist in Brent can offer you the most realistic prosthetic available to close the gap and restore your smile; dental implants.

And to help you out a bit more, here, our dentist in Brent answers the most common FAQs that we receive about dental implants.

Does having dental implants fitted hurt?

In short, no.

Our dentist in Brent will always ensure that you are comfortable when we fit oral implants and will use a local anaesthetic to remove the sensation of the procedure. If you are a nervous patient, we can offer other alternatives such as intravenous (IV) sedation or general anaesthetic.

When you are at home afterwards, we advise that you use over the counter pain relief such as paracetamol to control the discomfort.

Is anyone suitable for dental implants?

Sadly, no.

There are a few things that are required for you to be suitable to have oral implants fitted. The first is that you will need to have a thick, healthy jaw bone, which our team will confirm using an x-ray. We will also need to ensure that your oral health is in good condition, and will check for issues such as gum disease, which can significantly shorten the lifespan of implants if left untreated.

Our team may also inquire into lifestyle choices; if you smoke cigarettes or drink excessive amounts of alcohol, we cannot stop you from having implants fitted but their longevity may be shortened.

I’m 56- am I too old for dental implants?

No, you aren’t!

There is no upper age limit on having dental implants but you do have to be over 18 years of age to have them fitted.

Provided that you have adequate amounts of healthy jaw bone and that your oral health is in good condition, our team will happily fit them for you! But we will also have to ask a few medical questions too; many illnesses can be contraindicated to receiving dental implants (such as osteoporosis) and so, we need to ensure that you are suitable in all areas to receive them.

How long do they last?

If you commit to the correct aftercare and oral hygiene, dental implants can last up to and over 15 years.

Remember, that implants need to be cared for as though they were your real teeth; you need to brush them twice a day, floss them and attend check-ups with our team biannually so we can keep an eye out for things like gum disease. We will also advise you to give up smoking or drinking excessively, as these activities can also shorten the lives of your implants.

Can I afford them?

Many patients who come to us to have dental implants fitted have concerns that they will be too expensive.

Provided that you pass our suitability check, we will be able to offer you 0% interest-free financing options to help you spread the cost of your implants. And so, you will be able to pay them off gradually, showing off your new smile along the way. Great stuff!

By having an effective dental hygiene routine in place, that you are able to maintain on a daily basis and prioritise in your life, you will be able to help optimise your oral health. At the same time it is very important to visit your dentist in Brent on a regular basis to make sure that your brushing technique and your dental hygiene routine are sufficient for this. You may feel like you are looking after your teeth to the best of your ability, however sometimes plaque and tartar can build up in those hard-to-reach areas if you have crooked or misaligned teeth and can lead to significant dental issues, especially if left untreated.dentist-in-brent

Invisalign at your dentist

If you did not undergo orthodontic treatment when you were younger or you would like to address the appearance of your teeth, speak to us at Angel Dental Implant Care and find out about Invisalign at your dentist in Brent. Invisalign is a highly popular alternative to traditional, metal, dental braces for correcting the misalignment of your teeth. Metal braces are fixed to the surfaces of your teeth and are highly visible in your mouth, resulting in a reluctance amongst adults to consider this form of orthodontic treatment. Invisible aligners are a highly effective and discreet method of improving the aesthetics of your teeth; firstly as the name suggests they are almost invisible, being made out of clear plastic and secondly they can be removed and put back into your mouth as necessary, so they do not affect any aspect of your lifestyle or your eating habits. If you have good oral health and your dentist is happy that your teeth are clean and your gums are strong and healthy, then Invisalign here at your dentist in Brent may be the perfect solution for you.

Veneers at your dentist

If your dentist in Brent suggests that you may not be eligible for Invisalign then you may want to consider other treatment options to help improve the appearance of your smile. Here at Angel Dental Implant Care we recommend the use of porcelain veneers to help transform your smile. Porcelain is the ideal material for veneers, however we do offer gold veneers as well if that is something you would like to find out more about. Dental veneers are ideal for masking major imperfections of your teeth, this includes discolouration which cannot be addressed by teeth whitening procedures. Crooked teeth, protruding teeth, cracks in your teeth and gaps in your teeth can all be addressed by veneers. If your tooth is damaged completely then your dentist in Brent may recommend dental implant surgery, where you will undergo a tooth extraction and have a metal screw placed in your jaw to replace your missing teeth. Completed with a beautiful crown to help restore the aesthetics of your smile and promote better oral health at the same time. Speak to us at our practice today to find out more about all the different treatment options that we have available for you.

Dental implants are a potentially permanent method of tooth replacement therapy which is made up of three parts: a titanium screw, which is fitted into your jawbone; an abutment, which is known as a connector post and the choice of prosthetic which replaces your missing tooth or teeth.dentist-brent

Speak to us at Angel Dental Implant Care to find out about dental implants, here at your dentist in Brent, and learn more about why they may be the ideal tooth replacement solution for you.

Dental implant surgery

Dental implant surgery is a lengthy procedure, however it has a success rate of 98% and the results show excellent longevity. If you have experienced losing a tooth or need a set of your teeth replaced then you need to book an appointment to visit your dentist in Brent and you will be asked to come in for a comprehensive examination of your mouth to assess the state of your oral health. Any dental condition which needs addressing will have this done before the procedure and you will also be examined to make sure that you have sufficient healthy bone to help hold the implant in place. If you have experienced bone decay following tooth loss or there is insufficient healthy bone for other reasons then you may require bone grafting. This will help ensure that your implant surgery is successful, and may be carried out at the time of the surgery or it may need to be carried out a few weeks prior to the surgery, depending on the level of grafting necessary for you.

The procedure itself is carried out by drilling a hole into the bone socket of the missing tooth or teeth and then placing the titanium screw into this hole to initiate osseointegration, a natural process which can be described as bone healing. As the bone heals it grows around the titanium screw so that it is embedded securely into the bone. This procedure can take several months and varies between each patient. In the meantime you will undergo regular check-ups with your dentist in Brent to make sure that the process is coming along successfully and that the bone is healing nicely. Once your dentist in Brent is happy that successful osseointegration has taken place then you are ready for the next stage of the procedure. You may need to have an incision carried out on your gum to expose the head of the screw so that an abutment (also known as a connector post) can be attached to the screw. Once the abutment is securely in place then a crown will be fitted to the abutment to replace your missing tooth. Now your dental implant procedure is complete. This will help restore the full functioning of your mouth and create a beautiful smile for you.

To help maintain your dental implants it is important that you keep up an excellent dental hygiene routine and that you visit your dentist on a regular basis, to make sure that your teeth are clean and your gums are strong and healthy. Speak to us at Angel Dental Implant Care today and find out more about dental implants and why they may be the perfect solution for you.
