Dental Implants at Millennium Dental Clinic

The development of dental implants has created an alternative to dentures in replacing missing teeth.

Dental implants are synthetic replacements for the roots of the missing teeth. They are attached to the jawbone and act as the basis for an artificial tooth or a dental bridge. Dentures can also be attached to implants in most cases.

How does a dental implant work / benefit?

The implant stands alone and does not rely on healthy adjacent teeth being ground down for a crown; nor does it have to link to the neighbouring teeth in any way. An implant can actually withstand more load than a normal tooth.  The dental implant is placed when the gums have healed following a dental extraction.

When inserted into an accurately created hole in the jawbone, a strong union forms between the titanium and the patient’s native bone. This begins at about two weeks following insertion and continues to increase in strength until around six weeks when the screw can be used to support one or more teeth.

Single Implant

A single missing tooth can be replaced with a single dental implant.  The appearance of our front teeth is very important for many of us and dental implants have become the first choice for many patients who are missing a tooth from their smile!

A single titanium implant is carefully placed into the jawbone and once healed, a custom made cosmetic crown is created to perfectly fit onto the implant and match nearby teeth to give a natural look. The dental implant will function, look and feel just like your own tooth.

Multiple Implants

Multiple implants are used if you have more than one tooth missing. This can lead to a large gap in your mouth resulting in difficulty eating, speaking and affecting the appearance of your smile. Multiple dental implants can be placed to restore the gap. This can be as a combination of single implants and cosmetic crowns or a cosmetic bridge connecting implants together. The number of dental implants required depends on a number of factors and a consultation is advisable in order to determine this.

Dental Implant FAQs

How long does dental implant treatment take?

For routine cases, from the time of implant insertion to the time of placing the first tooth, treatment times can vary between 6 weeks and 6 months. Good solid bone will reduce treatment time, whilst more time and care must be taken with poor bone, which can therefore extend treatment times.

How long will a dental implant last?

If looked after correctly, dental implants will last for many decades.

How much do dental implants cost?

There isn’t a standard answer to how much implants will cost because the work required is tailored to your needs. Prices vary depending on how many implants you need and whether you need any treatment prior to placement (such as a bone graft).We understand that the price of dental implants can be daunting. For this reason we have a number of payment options available.

How do I look after my dental implants?

For most dental implant-supported teeth you will be able to clean around each supporting dental implant by brushing and flossing in just the same way that you would around your own teeth. In some areas we recommend flossing, inter dental toothbrushes and other cleaning aids to maintain excellent oral hygiene.

For the first few months after the dental implants are placed, your dentist may ask to see you more frequently. However, once your dentist is satisfied your treatment is performing as planned, ongoing care will be similar to patients with natural teeth.

Are dental implants for me?

The most important visit is the initial consultation where we will go through a series of questions regarding your previous dental and medical histories. This will help to determine if dental implants are the best option for you.

If you are in good general health, dental implants are likely to be a suitable option for the replacement of your missing teeth.  However, habits such as heavy drinking and smoking can compromise the initial healing time and have a detrimental effect on the long-term health of gum and bone surrounding each implant.
