Dental implants

Dental implants are a speciality here at our surgery in Droitwich, near the towns of Bromsgrove, Kidderminster and Redditch. Dental implants can be used to replace individual missing teeth that may have been lost through dental disease or trauma. However, their versatility doesn’t stop there, several implants can be placed in the jaw to support a combination of crowns and bridges to fully restore your smile.

A dental implant is a titanium rod which is surgically placed in the jaw bone. After a healing period, this rod can then be used to support crowns, bridges or affix dentures.

Dental Implants are a safe, well-established treatment and should last as long as natural teeth. By replacing missing teeth your face can look fuller and more youthful. The functionality of the teeth will also be improved, with less pressure being placed on your remaining natural teeth. Through the placement of dental implants, the load is spread more evenly across the dentition and in turn could eliminate any digestive problems you may currently be suffering with.

For an implant to be placed you have to undergo a small surgical procedure which can be done under local anaesthetic or sedation. A healing period is then required to allow the jaw bone to interlock with a titanium rod and once stable it can be loaded with the crown, bridge or denture. This period of healing can be anything from 3-9 months; however, on average 6 months is enough time for the tooth to be restored.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

There are a number of benefits to dental implants including:

  • You don’t tend to notice them as they are designed specifically for your mouth, matching the size and colour of the rest of your teeth so they look natural
  • They are a long-lasting solution provided that they are cared for properly
  • They are a permanent solution fixed into the jawbone, so don’t need removing as you would with other solutions for tooth loss, such as dentures.
  • They allow you to eat all your favourite foods again as they are as strong as your natural teeth
  • They don’t impact speech

How much do dental implants cost?

A survey was carried out by Dentistry Magazine in association with dentistry.co.uk in 2015 which found that the national average fee for a single tooth implant is £2,415. 

Here at Spa Dental we want to ensure that our prices are accessible for all so begin below this national average at £1750 per tooth. Plus, we offer a completely free initial consultation so if you think dental implants might be the solution for you then book an appointment or give us a call today.


How long do dental implants last?

Provided that you look after them, dental implants should last as long as natural teeth so once the procedure is complete then you shouldn’t need it repeated and they should last as long as 20 years.

However, an implant may require maintenance in the same way that your natural teeth do, for example to the crown or any other structures of the implant. Therefore it is important to keep having regular check-ups with your dentist following a procedure such as this.

Dental implant procedure

Consultation

Dental implants require a detailed treatment planning session, in which a comprehensive oral assessment will be completed and impressions and x-rays taken.

Treatment

The procedure is individually tailored to your objectives and may include several stages of treatment. The process is completed in house under Local Anaesthetic.

Healing

The condition of your bone determines the length of healing time required before the implant can be loaded with the permanent crown. During this period you will have a removable denture or fixed bridge to restore the dentition.

Maintenance

Following treatment, it’s important that you see your dentist regularly to maintain and enhance the health of your mouth, teeth and dental implants. Appointments may also be arranged with our hygienist to ensure a high level of oral hygiene is upheld.
