Read on to find out more about dental implants and to see if this treatment is right for you.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants – also called tooth implants – are permanently implanted false teeth. Instead of dentures, bridges and other apparatus, you can have a solid new tooth fixed. And with single, multiple and full sets of teeth available, there is something for every gap – and every smile.

What are dental implants made of?

Your new tooth implant will be made from quality metal and realistic porcelain, helping it not only anchor firmly in the mouth, but hold up to any kind of diet, and look just like a natural tooth at the same time. Our expert dentists in Loughborough can match your new tooth implant to the rest of your teeth, so nobody will ever know you’ve got a false tooth.

How are dental implants inserted?

Tooth implants have a high success rate – somewhere around 95%. That’s because they’re surgically implanted into your mouth through a minimally invasive procedure. You’ll have a local anaesthetic to desensitise the area, a small incision and finally, the implant gently screwed into place. During a small healing period, a temporary crown is fitted. Then, at the end of your treatment, you’ll have a custom-made crown created which finishes off the tooth.

Can dental implants fall out?

Though unlikely, like any surgical procedure, there’s always a risk it will fail or complications may arise. That’s why it’s important to care for your new tooth implant afterwards because, without a good oral care routine, you risk issues like gum recession, which can cause any tooth to become loose or lost.

Is dental implant treatment painful?

You may experience some slight discomfort as your new tooth implant heals, however, treatment is highly successful and usually, any pain can be managed with over-the-counter relief (if it’s needed). You’ll only need to make a temporary adjustment to your lifestyle and diet as it heals, and then you’ll be free to live your life how you like.
