What are Dental Implants ?

What Are Implants?what are dental implants

Dental implants are devices that replace the roots of missing teeth in your jaw. They are a basic feature used to support the application of crowns, bridges and dentures, and are usually implanted surgically into your jaw. Most of the time implants feel more natural, comfortable and secure than other methods for replacing teeth, like dentures for example.

Root Canal Treatment

To Save An Infected Tooth From Extractionroot canal infection

What Is A Root Canal?

Contrary to popular belief a standard root canal treatment is not a painful procedure. You are given a heavy dose of local anaesthetic and plenty of time to ensure that it has worked before the treatment is actually started. A root canal procedure might be necessary if the 'pulp' (the soft centre that fills the tooth and root canals, holding the tooth securely into the jawbone) becomes infected. In most cases this is not a problem - as the pulp from a mature tooth can be removed safely and easily. But infected pulp can affect the bone surrounding the tooth, and this can cause a painful abscess to form. Root canals are performed on affected teeth in order to save them from extraction and prevent the need for dental implants. A root canal is performed by removing the infected pulp from the tooth and treating any secondary infections present before filling and sealing the empty canals to prevent further infection.

Why Bone Grafting and Augmentation Needs?

Gum And Bone Grafts For Periodic Dental Problems & Tooth Implants

Dental implants are a fantastic way to improve your smile and fix any niggling imperfections - and usually there is no medical reason why you shouldn't have dental implants. However if you have suffered some bone loss in your jaw, sometimes this can add an unexpected cost to your dental work. This is because dental implants need a decent breadth and depth of bone to be able to hold them in place securely, and bone loss inhibits or prevents the implant from holding in place. If this happens then normal activities like biting and chewing put pressure on the implants, and this could cause damage or breakage. But why would I have lost bone from my jaw? That's simple - we lose bone as a result of losing teeth. After you lose a tooth, or have it extracted, around 30-60% of the remaining bone around the socket can be lost. If you then suffer oral disease, this can contribute significantly to even more bone loss. But there is a really simple way to avoid this. Instead of waiting, we suggest that you have the implant set and fitted at the same time as your tooth is extracted, in order to avoid extra grafting. If you do need grafting work to be done then don't panic - this is a perfectly normal and routine procedure. But we can't tell if you do or don't need grafting (or how much you need) without performing x-rays. When assessing what your requirements are, we will look at the extent of your bone loss and the grafting work needed. If there is a large amount then we may recommend the grafting procedure be carried out as a preliminary operation, before the fitting of the actual implant. If this is the case then you will need to wait an additional six months before your implant can be fitted. This is so that the bone can regenerate and give the implant a solid anchorage point. However in most cases we are able to combine any existing bone regeneration with the implant procedure, using synthetic materials to build up the bone to a satisfactory point. If actual bone is required for the grafting, then we will harvest this from another part of the jaw. The entire procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic combined with oral sedation - so that you won't feel pain or anxiety during the operation.

Dental Bridge Hungary

Dental Bridge Work Information & Costs

Restore Missing Teeth in One Week  from 199GBP per tooth

Using a Dental Bridge to Restore Missing Teeth

We can use dental bridge work to restore one or more lost teeth. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth, or pontic, that takes the place of a missing tooth. The pontic is attached to and held in place by the neighbouring teeth either side of it. The pontic 'floats' in the space left by the missing tooth.

Reasons for using Bridgework to Restore Lost Teeth
Cosmetic considerations are the most obvious reasons why people opt to have bridgework made for them. Gaps left by missing teeth are unsightly, especially at the front. Lost teeth can also affect the shape of your face leading to the 'collapsed' appearance we often associate with old age.

Full Mouth Restoration-Smile Makeover

There are a few different ways of dealing with total tooth loss and restoring your smile. The main options are:

-Dentures

-Implant Anchored Dentures

-Fixed Bridgework

If you are about to, or have lost all of your teeth, then dentures are in your future. It's not anything we like to think about, but luckily there are a few ways you can get your smile back. In the UK, a full set of dentures costs around £200 when supplied by the NHS, but you will need to replace them every 5-7 years. In addition, many people experience a number of drawbacks when using traditional dentures, such as:

  • Initial difficulties with speech.
  • Poor fit and discomfort. Standard dentures won't fit everybody, and because the gum changes over time this causes irritation.
  • Developing sores and ulcers from time to time.
  • One or both dentures moving around while talking, laughing or eating. This causes discomfort, embarrassment and irritation.
  • Some foods are off limits. Dentures can't cope with foods that are too hard, sticky or chewy, as chewing with a denture is only about 25% as efficient as your real teeth.
  • Reduction of taste. This is because the upper denture will often cover the palate, and this can reduce your ability to taste foods.
  • Daily removal of the denture for cleaning.

Bone Grafting Hungary

Bone & Soft Tissue Grafting following a period of oral disease & bone loss

Dental Bone & Gum Grafting

In an ideal world, your bone and gum tissue should fit snugly around your teeth like a glove. However, if you have suffered a period of oral disease then this supporting bone and tissue is destroyed. This leaves gaps known as 'pockets' around your teeth. If these pockets are left untreated then they continue to get deeper. This dramatically increases the risk of infection, bone loss and eventually tooth loss, along with other complications. Luckily, when a period of oral disease has destroyed the bone which supports the teeth, the damage can be reversed. This is done by regenerating the lost bone and tissue by a process known as GTR (Guided Tissue Regeneration).

Sinus Lift Procedure

The sinus lift procedure - what and why?

If you have lost bone in your upper jaw, you may need a Sinus Lift and Augmentation procedure. The sinus lift is a simple procedure that is designed to raise the sinus floor above your molars and premolars. This involves lifting the sinus membrane to make room for new bone growth.

The procedure is normally needed when you have lost teeth, and the bone that supported then has atrophied and lost substance over time. This is especially important if you have suffered a period of oral infection, as this often exacerbates bone loss.

A sinus lift procedure is often carried out as part of a dental implant surgery, so it doesn't prolong your dental treatment at all. This is the case with the majority of our patients, however in some extreme cases where there is severe bone loss, the surgery needs to take place up to nine months before any dental implants can be fitted.
