May 30, 2023

Dental implants may be the long-term solution you’ve been searching for. With their ability to mimic the look and function of natural teeth, dental implants have become a popular choice for individuals seeking a permanent and fixed replacement option. In this blog, we will delve into the world of dental implants, exploring what they are, their indications, the implant procedure, and even the cost involved. If you’re ready to regain your confident smile and enjoy the benefits of a complete set of teeth, read on to discover why dental implants could be the ideal solution for you.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a long-term solution to missing teeth. They are made up of three parts: the implant itself, the abutment, and the crown. The implant is a small titanium post that is placed directly into the jawbone, where it fuses with the bone over time. The abutment is a connector that attaches to the implant and supports the crown. The crown is the visible part of the implant that looks and functions like a natural tooth.

What are the indications for dental implants?

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full set of teeth in the lower or upper jaws. They are an excellent option for patients who want a permanent, fixed solution to missing teeth. Some of the indications for dental implants include:

  • Missing teeth due to injury or trauma
  • Tooth decay or gum disease that has led to tooth loss
  • Congenital missing teeth
  • Failed root canals or other dental procedures
  • Age-related tooth loss

How are dental implants performed?

The first step in the dental implant process is a consultation with an experienced implant dentist, such as myself. During this consultation, we will discuss your medical history, examine your teeth and gums, and take x-rays or other imaging tests to determine whether dental implants are right for you.

If you are a good candidate for dental implants, the next step is to place the implant itself. This is done under local anaesthesia and is generally pain-free. After the implant is placed, there is a healing period of several months during which the implant fuses with the jawbone. Once the implant has fully fused, the abutment and crown can be attached.

At our practice, we work as part of the largest implant team in Stafford, and all of our implants are placed by experienced, qualified surgeons. We use the latest technology and techniques to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants varies depending on a number of factors, including the number of implants needed, the complexity of the procedure, and the materials used. At our practice, affordable dental implants are priced from £2350. We also offer 0% interest payment plans to make the cost of treatment more manageable for our patients.
