What are dental implants?
Dental implants are natural feeling artificial teeth, which are fused with your jawbone by a titanium screw to replace the root of one or more missing teeth.
This is normally due to periodontal disease or injury.
There are two types of dental implants we provide at MK Dental Practice:
- Endosteal implants – these most commonly used implants come in the shape of cylinders, screws or plates and are implanted directly into the jawbone.
- Subperiosteal implants – best suited for patients with shallow jawbones, these implants consist of a metal frame that is fit under the gum, on or above the jawbone.
Dental implants also come in different sizes and heights. At MK Dental Practice, Milton Keynes, we will choose the option that suits your needs best, depending on the tooth or teeth that need replacing.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are fused to your jawbone beneath your gums to provide stable support for artificial but natural feeling teeth.
With the secure fit of dental implants, dentures or dental bridges mounted to implants will not slip or shift. This will ensure comfort and confidence when eating or speaking. Further, individual dental crowns placed over implants will feel more natural than standard bridges or dentures.
Benefits of dental implants
There are a number of advantages for choosing dental implants:
- Dental implants will not compromise your adjacent teeth. Your new replacement teeth will hold in place on their own without the need for neighbouring teeth to be grounded down
- Unlike bridges, dental implants will not be anchored to other teeth
- Unlike dentures, dental implants will never come loose
How long do dental implants take to fit?
Dental implant are fitted in two stages at Milton Keynes dental practice.
The first stage is to fit the abutment (or titanium fixture) into the jawbone. A temporary implant, matching your smile, is fitted to the abutment while we wait for the titanium fixture to settle and heal. This is a same day procedure, requiring only a local anaesthetic.
The second and final stage is to fit a permanent porcelain tooth that fits your smile perfectly.
