These titanium posts fuse with the bone, supporting crowns, bridges, or dentures, mimicking the function and appearance of natural teeth. Dental implants offer a durable and long-term solution for missing teeth, enhancing both aesthetics and oral functionality.

The process of dental implants

The process of getting dental implants involves collaboration between you and the dental team at Devonshire Dental Care to ensure a successful and lasting result:

  1. Initial Consultation: Schedule a consultation at Devonshire Dental Care in Glasgow to discuss your dental health, assess eligibility, and address any concerns.
  2. Comprehensive Examination: Undergo a thorough dental examination, including X-rays, to evaluate jawbone density, gum health, and overall oral condition.
  3. Treatment Planning: Collaborate with our experienced dental team to create a personalised treatment plan, outlining the number of implants needed and the type of restoration.
  4. Tooth Extraction (if required): If there are damaged or decayed teeth at the implant site, they may need extraction before proceeding with the implant placement.
  5. Implant Placement: During a minor surgical procedure, titanium implant posts are precisely placed into the jawbone. In some cases, temporary crowns may be placed for aesthetics.
  6. Healing Period (Osseointegration): Allow time for the implants to fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This period typically lasts a few months.
  7. Abutment Placement: Attach abutments to the implant posts, which serve as connectors between the implants and the final dental restoration.
  8. Impressions for Restoration: Take impressions of the abutments to create custom-made crowns, bridges, or dentures that will be securely attached to the implants.
  9. Final Restoration Placement: Once the restorations are ready, they are permanently attached to the abutments, completing the dental implant procedure.
  10. Post-Placement Check-ups: Attend follow-up appointments at Devonshire Dental Care to monitor healing, assess the success of the implants, and make any necessary adjustments.
  11. Regular Maintenance: Adopt a regular oral care routine, including brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups, to maintain the health of both the implants and natural teeth.

Frequently asked questions

What is advantage of implants over other methods of tooth restoration?

The most common alternatives to dental implants are denture and bridges. Getting a bridge requires attaching false teeth to your existing teeth. This involves filing or modifying the teeth on either side of missing teeth in order to support bridge which can have implication is future. Also, often require replacement which makes it more costly option over time. Dentures are false teeth attached to plastic or metal plate which are placed in placed in mouth and are removable. They are cumbersome, uncomfortable and limit your dietary intake. Also, with time they might wear or become loose fitted causing slippage and imprecise fit issues. Whereas dental implants are the permanent solution to missing teeth. They are comfortable, effective, aesthetically pleasing, look and behave just like natural tooth, do not impact surrounding teeth and less costly over long run.

How do I know if I’m suitable for dental implants?

A person who can undergo tooth extractions or bridgework can undergo dental implant treatment. The location and the amount of bone available in the implant area is normally the major factor to be considered for any case. Normally implants are suitable and best option for most cases but its best to have a consultation with our dentist to check for suitability and ask any questions you might have for the treatment.

Can I get dental implants on NHS?

Dental implants are typically not available through the NHS, as they are considered a cosmetic procedure. However, in some rare cases where the implants are deemed medically necessary, the NHS may cover the cost. It’s best to consult with our dentist and NHS dental services for specific eligibility criteria and options available in your area.

How long does it take for the dental implant treatment?

Our dentist should be able to give you a rough estimate about time after your first consultation. Nowadays some false teeth are fitted as the same time as implants for some cases. Check with your dentist to see if it’s suitable for you. Normally the false teeth are fitted after 3-4 months after placing the implant. In some instances it might take longer due to complexity of the case but your dentist should be able to let you know about this during your treatment.

How do dental implants look?

They look exactly the same as your natural teeth.

Is dental Implant painful?

Typically, implant treatment is no more painful than having a tooth extracted. Often, we place implants using a surgical guide that we can create from your CT cone beam scan. This enables us to insert implants through a small punch hole, akin to keyhole surgery. Consequently, the treatment is virtually painless.

Should I get my own dentist to remove the tooth before I discuss implants with you?

It’s a good idea to come and see us as soon as you can. If we need to extract a tooth before the implant, it’s essential to do it delicately to preserve your own bone. If your dentist is experienced in this, that’s fantastic! But if not, don’t worry; we can handle the tooth removal at our surgery along with the implant placement. Just let us know what works best for you!

What are implants made from?

Implants are made from titanium. Bone has a natural affinity for titanium which enables it to grow around the implant effectively becoming part of your bone.

Can anyone get dental implants?

In general, most healthy individuals with good oral health are suitable candidates for dental implant treatment. However, a comprehensive dental evaluation is necessary to determine if you are an ideal candidate.

Will I be without teeth during the implant process?

Our dentist will provide temporary tooth replacements during the healing period to ensure you don’t go without teeth. These can be removable dentures or temporary crowns.

How long is the recovery period after dental implants?

After undergoing dental implant surgery, the initial recovery period usually spans a few days, during which you may encounter temporary swelling and discomfort. The complete healing and osseointegration process can extend over several months, allowing the implant to firmly integrate with the jawbone.

Can smokers get dental implants?

Although smoking can increase the risk of complications and hinder the healing process, smokers can still get dental implants. However, it is strongly advised to quit smoking or at least reduce smoking to increase the chances of successful implant integration.

Is there an age limit for dental implant treatment?

There is no strict age limit for dental implant treatment. As long as you have good oral health and are suitable for the procedure, dental implants can be considered at any age.

Do I need a bone graft for dental implants?

Not every dental implant case requires a bone graft. It depends on the jawbone’s condition and the specific implantation site. A comprehensive assessment by a dental professional will determine the necessity.

Bridge or dental implant: Which one should I choose?

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, two popular options are dental bridges and dental implants. Both solutions offer their own set of benefits and considerations. The choice between a bridge and a dental implant depends on various factors, including your oral health, budget, and personal preferences. Consulting with a qualified dentist like us is crucial to determine the most suitable option tailored to your individual needs.

Can dental implants replace multiple missing teeth?

Yes, dental implants can replace multiple missing teeth. Implant-supported bridges or dentures are effective solutions for restoring function and aesthetics in cases of several missing teeth.

Can dental implants fail, and what are the common reasons?

While rare, dental implant failure can occur. Common reasons include infection, poor osseointegration, peri-implantitis (gum disease around the implant), or complications during surgery.

Can I get dental implants if I have diabetes?

Diabetic individuals can be candidates for dental implants, but strict blood sugar control is essential. Diabetes management and overall health play a role in the success of the implant procedure.

Can I get dental implants if I grind my teeth?

Teeth grinding (bruxism) can impact dental implants. Our dentist may recommend a nightguard to protect the implants and address the underlying issue of teeth grinding before proceeding with implant surgery.

Can dental implants be placed if I have had jaw surgery before?

Dental implants can be placed after jaw surgery, depending on the specific procedure and its impact on the bone structure. A thorough evaluation by our dentist is necessary.

Do dental implants affect surrounding teeth?

Dental implants are independent structures that do not negatively impact surrounding teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, adjacent teeth remain untouched, preserving their natural structure.

Devonshire Dental Care provides the best dental care that I have ever experienced. I recently developed a bad toothache and after having no sleep overnight, I called them as soon as they opened and not only did Nicola and her team fit me in but also relieved my pain. Nicola also went above and beyond in my opinion when she called me later in the day to see if I was doing ok and to let me know I should come back in if I had any problems. Thank you Nicola and the amazing team at Devonshire Dental, you are outstanding and I cannot recommend you more.

I went to Devonshire on a friend’s recommendation after receiving a treatment plan from another dentist indicating I need 4 fillings. Nicola made me feel at ease from the moment I walked in. Her professionalism is complemented by her friendly demeanour. Nicola advised I only needed 1 filling rather than 4. The filling was done perfectly and looks completely natural. My hygiene appointment was quick and thorough. The staff are really friendly and professional. Having trust in your dentist is so important and seeing Nicola has made me feel glad I came to the practice. I’ll be a returning patient and will recommend to all friends and colleagues.

I can’t say enough good things about Devonshire dental care and Mr Alan Rennie. Everyone there has a very relaxed and friendly approach, Alan talks you through your treatment options thoroughly and, after seeing him for 10 years I can confirm his work is to a very high stardard. I have been terrified of the dentist my whole life but going to Alan Rennie has really helped calm me down to the point going is much easier.
