Q What are dental implants?

A A dental implant is a titanium metal rod which is placed into the jawbone. It is used to support one or more false teeth. In practice, both the false teeth and their supporting rod are known as ‘implants’. It provides stable support for one or more artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges supported by implants won’t slip in your mouth, which is an important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures and the bridges feel more natural than conventional bridges and dentures.

Q Are implants safe? How long will they last?

A Implants are a well-established, tried-and-tested treatment. 90 per cent of modern implants last for at least 15 years depending on the location of the implant and the patient’s oral hygiene.

Q I have some of my own teeth. Can I still have implants?

A Yes. You can have any number of teeth replaced with implants – from one single tooth to a complete set.

Q Can implants always be used to replace missing teeth?

A It depends on the state of the bone in your jaw. Your dentist will arrange for a number of special tests to assess the amount of bone still there. If there is not enough, or if it isn’t healthy enough, it may not be possible to place implants without grafting bone into the area first.

Q Who makes the implantation?

A When you get implants, more than one dental professional may treat you. The implants will be placed by an oral surgeon. A prosthodontist or general dentist will make your crowns, bridges or dentures, which will look like natural teeth. The surgeon will coordinate your treatment with your general dentist or prosthodontist to decide what implants to use, how many implants you need and where they should be placed.

Q Do implants hurt?

A Placing the implants requires a small operation. This can be carried out under local anaesthetic with sedation or with a general anaesthetic. You will not feel any pain at the time, but you may feel some discomfort during the week following the surgery. This is usually due to having stitches in place, and the normal healing process. Our patients are astonished how little pain is entailed by implantation. Dental surgeons with many-year experience perform implantations.

Q Who can get an implant?

A A person who is in good health, has healthy gums, and has enough bone in his or her jaw to allow an implant to be placed in the jawbone. Your dental professional will examine you to determine if you are suitable to get an implant.

Q What is bone grafting?

A Special tests are needed to assess the amount of bone in your jaw. If there is not enough or if it isn’t healthy enough, you may need to have the bone in the area built up before a dental implant is placed, to increase the chance of success. This procedure is called bone grafting or bone augmentation. You can have the bone graft done and get the implants at the same time, but your dental specialist may decide to do the bone-graft procedure first and give the bone time to heal before placing the implants. If the bone graft is done first, you will need 4 to 12 months to heal before having the implants placed in your jawbone. However, you can wear your dentures or bridge during this healing time, so you won't be without teeth.

Q Can I have the new teeth straight away?

A No. The implants need to bond (integrate) with the bone after they have been placed. This takes at least 3 months in the lower jaw and 6 months in the upper jaw. If you are having one, two or three teeth replaced, you will have a temporary restoration in the meantime. If you have complete dentures, then you can wear them throughout the healing period once they have been adjusted after the surgery. After the implants have integrated with the bone, you are ready for the second surgery and for the restoration. Generally, you will go to your dentist or prosthodontist to start the process of having your crown, bridge or denture made.


Q How long does treatment take?

A It takes about 6-12 months from the initial assessment to the time when the artificial teeth or dentures are finally attached to the implants. However, if only the lower jaw is involved then it may only take around 5 months. A lot depends on how complicated your treatment is. Your dentist will be able to give you a timetable once the surgery has been done.

Q What do I have do after the surgery? Are there any useful instructions?

A Certainly, your dental surgeon will give you some useful instructions after the surgery, e.g. : cool the place of the operation definitely from outside, only when the effect of the anaesthetic injection ceases completely, can you eat and have hot drinks, don't spit, suck on straws or smoke, do not smoke, do not drink coffee, tea or coke, eat only soft food to avoid injuring your gum tissues, don't try to clean the implant area for the next one to two weeks, but clean the rest of your mouth normally. Your dentist may give you an antibacterial rinse to help keep the area clean. You will return to the surgeon 7 to 10 days later to have your stitches removed.

Q Are the teeth difficult to clean?

A Cleaning around the teeth attached to the implants is no more difficult than cleaning natural teeth. However, there may be areas that give you problems and you’ll be shown methods to help. You care for your implants the same way you care for your natural teeth. It is important to brush and floss daily. You will need to visit your dentist for checkups regularly.

Q If I had gum disease when I had my own teeth, will I get it with the teeth attached to the implants?

A Yes, if you don’t care for them well enough. If you keep them clean, and don’t smoke, then you should not have any problems.

Q Can I take the teeth out if they are fixed to implants?

A Most artificial teeth attached to implants can only be placed and removed by the dentist. However, if you have complete dentures fixed to the implants by bars, then you’ll be able to take them out for cleaning.

Q Do the implants show?

A Your dentist will make sure that the implants won’t show during all normal movements of the mouth and lips. You will need to be able to see them, so that you can clean them properly.

Q Do I have an implant for each missing tooth?

A No, unless you’re only having a single tooth replaced. Normally, five or six implants are used to replace all the teeth in one jaw, as each implant can usually support two teeth. For a few missing teeth, two or three implants may be used.

Q What is an implant-supported denture?

A An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. It is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. An implant-supported overdenture is attached to implants, while a regular denture rests on the gums, tends to be less stable there. You can remove an implant-supported denture easily. You will find it easier to speak and you won't have to worry about the denture becoming loose or falling out of your mouth. You will generally be able to eat foods you could not eat before. If you have an implant-supported denture in your upper jaw, it will feel more natural than a regular denture because the denture will no longer cover the roof of your mouth.


Q What is implant-supported bridge?

A An implant-supported bridge is similar to a regular dental bridge, but it is supported by implants and not by natural teeth. In most cases, when an implant-supported bridge is used, one implant is placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth and then, instead of placing a separate crown on top of each implant, the crowns are connected to each other to form one piece.

Q What if I get hit in the face?

A Implants and the teeth they support can be damaged by an accident in the same way that natural teeth can. However, if the false teeth are damaged and the remnants are left in the bone then they may be more difficult to remove than natural teeth would be. After healing, new false teeth can then be placed alongside the fragments.

Q What happens if the implant does not bond (integrate) with the bone?

A This happens very rarely. If the implant becomes loose during the healing period or just after, then it is easily removed and healing takes place in the normal way. Once the jaw has healed, another implant can be placed there. Or, the dentist can make a bridge, using the implanted false teeth that have ‘taken’.

Q Is the treatment expensive?

A Unfortunately, yes. However, in many situations, the cost of the treatment is only a little more than the cost of more conventional treatment with crowns and bridges. There are advantages to it, too. An implant to replace a single tooth avoids the need to cut down the teeth either side for crowns to support a bridge. Normal dentures often mean you can’t eat or speak well, due to the dentures moving about. But teeth attached to an implant don’t cause this problem. Stable teeth positively influence pronunciation and tasting flavours. Implants provides you with a better life quality and more self-confidence in private, social and professional life.
