The dental implant process
At Raynesway Dental, we are expertly equipped to deal with damaged or broken teeth and accept referrals from other dentists to provide their patients with implants. A dental implant is a fixed, strong alternative to removable dentures. They can also act as a firm anchor for dentures and bridges, to prevent them from wobbling in your mouth. Tooth implants are colour and shape matched to your existing teeth to ensure a completely natural look. Unless you tell them, someone will have no idea you have dental implants.
The process begins with your initial consultation, where your dentist will perform an x-ray on your mouth, review your dental history and create a mould of your teeth from which to construct the implants. The mould will make sure your implants fit you perfectly, so you can receive the best possible outcome from your treatment.
After your consultation and your mould has been sent away, your implants are created and are then ready to be inserted. The procedure is done under sterile conditions using mild anaesthetic and for particularly nervous or apprehensive patients, sedation can be an option. We want all of our patients to feel completely at ease during treatments, so it’s important to speak to your dentist if you are feeling anxious.
The titanium implant is placed onto your jawbone and will fuse to the bone itself, making the implant incredibly sturdy and strong. Over a period of up to 6 months, the implant settles within your mouth and if necessary, temporary dentures or bridgework can be worn until the tooth implant is ready to be cosmetically enhanced. After this is complete, natural looking porcelain crowns are added. Once again, you can smile with confidence.
