Dental Implants

Dental implants are used to replace lost teeth and have become increasingly popular.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are used to replace lost teeth and have become increasingly popular as an alternative to removable dentures. They can be used to support crowns that replace a single lost tooth, bridges that restore several lost teeth, and even dentures. There is a wealth of evidence from clinical studies that show that dental implants are a safe and convenient way to replace lost teeth with natural-looking results.

Implants are generally manufactured from titanium, which is a metal that is compatible with body tissues and able to bond with adjacent bone during healing.  At Levitas Dental Clinic Practice, we offer titanium implants.

Like natural teeth, implants need to be looked after as peri-implant diseases can occur around implants. Good oral hygiene and regular check-ups with us are thus essential.

What are the stages of implant treatment

Examination

We will start with a thorough examination of your mouth and will take digital scans, photographs and a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan of your jaws to assess the quality and quantity of your bone tissue and locate the position of important structures such as nerves and sinuses. This allows us to safely and precisely plan where the implants will be placed.

Insertion of implants

Implant treatment involves making a small incision in the gum to expose the area into which the implant is inserted.

Preparation of teeth and digital moulds

Once the implant has bonded with your bone, we will take a mould or digital scan of your mouth. This will be used to make a digital model of your teeth. Your crown or bridge will then be fabricated, taking care to achieve a natural finish that matches the rest of your teeth and bite.

Fitting of crown or bridge

After your new crown or bridge has been manufactured, it will be screwed onto the dental implant. We will check that the crown or bridge fits well and that your bite is comfortable.

Review

To make sure that the implants are stable and functioning well, and that you are completely happy with the finished result, we will review your treatment about 12 weeks later.

Bone grafts and bone regeneration

In some cases, bone grafts, and sinus lifts or sinus grafting procedures are needed to prepare the jawbone to be able to support the implant.

Bone grafts

Bone grafts are grafts that are placed into the bone to increase the height and/or width of the bone at the implant site, which is needed to support the implant. Various bone grafting materials are available and range from using your own bone, donated human bone, animal donor bone and synthetic bone substitutes.

After the procedure, you will need to wait for at least three months before having implants placed, so that healing can take place. The exact waiting time will depend on how much bone has been grafted. Where possible, bone grafting is carried out simultaneously with implant placement.

Sinus Lifts and Sinus Grafts

In some cases, where the premolars or molars in the upper jaw were lost many years ago or where there is a very thin sinus wall and there is insufficient bone height and width to place an implant, a sinus lift or grafting procedure is necessary. During this procedure, the sinus membrane is lifted and bone grafts are added to rebuild the bone mass so that it can support an implant.

We look forward to providing you with more information about how implants can help you to replace missing teeth. Please call us to book a consultation.

Dental Implants FAQ

How long is the recovery period with dental implants?
Every patient is different. Some people are back at work or in their daily routines within a day or two, others need a week to recover. It takes 6 to 8 months for the dental implants to fuse properly to your jawbone.

During the initial healing period, you may experience some minor discomfort and swelling which can be eased with paracetamol. You may want to eat soft foods during the early days too.

How do I care for my new dental implants?
Dental implants need to be cared for just like your natural teeth. You need to brush and floss regularly, and you need to visit your dentist and hygienist every 6 to 12 months. With good care, you can prolong the life of your dental implants.
Can dental implants replace dentures?
One of the key benefits of dental implants is that they can completely replace dentures. Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth and once fitted, you won’t need to wear dentures ever again.
