For discreet, long-lasting solutions for missing teeth, dental implants are one of the best and most popular treatments available. But what does the procedure involve, and is it right for you? Our expert Manchester dental team will talk you through everything you need to know and assess your suitability for the treatment. However, here’s our dental implant guide for patients considering this option.

Teeth Implants Explained – Your Easy Guide
So, what are dental implants, and how do they work? This cosmetic dentistry treatment is usually chosen by those with any number of missing teeth because they want to hide the gaps or find a more permanent alternative to dentures.

When you’ve lost teeth through gum disease, decay or injury, it can really knock your self-confidence. Eating and drinking suddenly become a more stressful experience, and many people are embarrassed if there are gaps in their smile zone. Others with long term issues find it stressful coping with dentures, so we can also talk to you about implant-retained dentures as a better option.

Tooth implants are made in the shape of a metal screw so that they can easily be inserted into the parts of the jawbone where they’re required. Each dental implant is a separate entity, whether you’re having one or multiple teeth replaced. Once embedded, the implant emulates the natural root of the tooth with the jawbone and gum tissue attaching and growing onto the surface. This provides the supporting root that’s missing in the gap.

The top of the dental implant is called an abutment, which is the connector between the implant and crown. If you choose porcelain crowns for the replacement teeth, they have a really natural look that patients love.

What Are Dental Implants Made From?
Tooth implants are usually manufactured using high-quality titanium that’s perfectly safe to use in the body. It means the natural tissues won’t reject the implant as a foreign structure, actively embracing it and fusing to the surface as if it were a real root requiring support. The strength of the titanium ensures the dental implants are robust and durable, acting as the perfect base to support crowns, dentures and bridges.

If you’re looking for a dentist in Manchester specialising in dental implant treatments, always check which implants they use and why, as it’s important to go with quality over price when it comes to this type of treatment. That’s because poorer quality dental implants could be more likely to fail and may not last as long as those with better certifications.

At our Manchester practice, we use Prama dental implants. We believe these are the implant of choice in the industry, thanks to the range of benefits they offer. This includes:

– High success rates
– A superior appearance
– A high-quality structure to encourage attachment
– Reduced peri-implantitis risks
– Certified Clean rated
– Gold neck to prevent dark gum areas

Benefits of Dental Implant Treatments
If you have missing teeth, there are several options on offer to you. Therefore, it’s important to make an informed choice when making any decisions about the future of your smile. Our dentist Manchester team will talk you through the most suitable options for you.

Some of the advantages of choosing dental implants include:

  • LONG-TERM SOLUTIONS: High-quality dental implants can last for many years if they’re kept clean and properly cared for.
  • DISCREET APPEARANCE: The implants we use are very discreet, using a gold neck so that there are no dark spots visible through the gum line.
  • SUPPORT FALSE TEETH: Implants are the best support you can give to crowns, dentures and bridges, holding them securely in place.
  • INCREASE YOUR CONFIDENCE: Once the implants are in place, patients often feel more confident when speaking, smiling and eating.
  • HAVE ONE OR MORE IMPLANTS: Whether patients want to replace one missing tooth or several teeth, dental implants are individually placed.
  • IMPROVED ORAL HEALTH: Your teeth and crowns will have more support in the mouth, and implants can improve the structure of your jawbone.
  • RESTORE YOUR SMILE: After the dental implant treatment is fully completed, patients love the fact they now have a full smile to be proud of.

How Many Years Do Dental Implants Last?
If you’re considering dental implants in Manchester, it’s important to consider how long they’ll last for and weigh this up against the cost of other less permanent alternatives.

To ensure your implants are a success, you must take good care of them and follow your dental hygiene programme. If your dentist identifies you’re at a higher risk of the dental implants failing, they will support you to lower the chances of this happening. For example, if you grind your teeth, they may recommend wearing a gum shield. They’ll also book you in for regular appointments with your hygienist and dentist. This helps them to keep a professional eye on how each dental implant is doing.

Please note that if you don’t attend your scheduled appointments, it could mean that any guarantees attached to implants, crowns, bridges and dentures are invalidated.

Are Implants Fitted in One Visit?
While the dental implant can usually be fitted on one visit, there are some other considerations to make when creating your treatment plan.

1. Bone grafts – To support the dental implant, the existing bone needs to be a suitable height and width, but it has often shrunk back after the tooth was lost. Therefore, a small bone graft will be required in these cases to ensure there is enough bone to attach to the implant. Our Manchester dental specialists will talk patients through this part of the treatment if it’s needed. Rest assured, it’s often a small procedure that sounds a lot scarier than it is.

2. Fitting the dental implants – The actual dental implant procedure can usually take place in one visit, even if you have a lot of teeth to replace. It involves inserting single implants into the jawbone, needing a few months to settle into place and attach to the bone properly.

3. Fitting dentures, bridges and crowns – Once the implant is ready to support your new artificial teeth, these will be connected to the abutment at the top of each dental implant.

Can You Have Sedation During the Treatment?
We often have patients who are extremely anxious about their dental procedure and would prefer sedation for the treatment. At 360 Dental Care, we offer safe, reliable IV sedation, carried out by a qualified dental professional. If you would like to discuss this option, please have a chat with your dentist when you have your consultation.

If you’re worried about what you’ll feel during a dental implant fitting, please rest assured that it shouldn’t hurt. We use a local anaesthetic to ensure the area is completely numb during the treatment. Our Manchester dentists will always check on you to ensure you feel no pain throughout the procedure. Afterwards, you may experience some discomfort where the gums are tender and need time to heal.

The Cost of Dental Treatment – How Much Are Dental Implants?
Unfortunately, dental implant treatments aren’t usually offered under NHS programmes, so unless there are very exceptional circumstances, they won’t be covered. Patients will often like to know the cost before they head into their consultation, but an exact quote can only be given once your Manchester dentist has assessed your mouth, teeth and gums. This will provide a clearer idea of the extent of any issues, the number of gaps to fill and whether bone grafting is required to support each dental implant. They will also need to discuss which type of cosmetic teeth you’ll be choosing to attach to the implants, such as porcelain crowns.

Once x-rays have been completed and a treatment plan determined, we can give you specific costs. However, it can be handy to know a starting point when thinking about implants dental treatments. Therefore, minor bone grafting, followed by fitting an implant and crown can be approximately £2,200. The cost of further dental implants placed during the same procedure may cost less.

Which Type of Oral Surgery Is Right for You?
The best way to know which type of oral surgery is right for you is to arrange a dental consultation. We offer virtual smile assessments so that we can hear more about what’s bothering you about your teeth and recommend the best place to start. Our experts will then book patients in for a consultation at our dental practice in Manchester.

When you come to visit us, your skilled and experienced dentist will assess your existing teeth and gums to determine their condition and recommend some of the best treatment options available. For those with teeth missing, this could include dentures, implant retained dentures, dental bridges or dental implants with crowns.

Dental implant treatments are suitable if you have teeth missing, you’re over 18, you don’t have signs of gum disease, and you’re in good health. The requirements for the implant treatment will vary between patients, especially if bone grafting is required before the procedure.
