Dental Implants in St Neots, Cambridgeshire

What are Dental Implants?

Are missing teeth causing you discomfort or affecting your confidence? Discover the transformative power of dental implants at Priory Park Dental Practice in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Regain your smile’s beauty and functionality with our expert implant solutions.

Dental implants replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth, support a bridge, eliminate the need for a removable partial denture, and provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.

Are You A Candidate For Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a remarkable solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring both your smile’s aesthetics and functionality. To determine if you are a candidate for dental implants, several factors need consideration:

Healthy Gums

Good oral health is essential. Healthy gums provide a stable foundation for implant placement.

Adequate Bone Density

Sufficient jawbone density is needed to support the implant. In cases of bone loss, bone grafting may be an option.

General Health

Your overall health plays a role. Chronic conditions like diabetes or immune disorders may require special considerations.

Non-Smoker

Smoking can hinder the healing process and success of implants. Quitting or refraining from smoking is often recommended.

Commitment to Oral Hygiene

Maintaining excellent oral hygiene is crucial for the long-term success of your dental implants.

Specific Tooth Replacement Needs

Dental implants can replace single teeth, multiple teeth, or even support full arches of teeth through procedures like All-on-4.

Age Consideration

While age alone is not a determining factor, adolescents and young adults may require special evaluation due to jawbone development.

Realistic Expectations

Understanding the implant process and having realistic expectations are essential for patient satisfaction.

Advantages of Dental Implants over Dentures or a Bridge

Dental implants are independent and do not impact negatively on the existing dentition. In our opinion dental implants are a better solution to the problem of missing teeth.

Aesthetic

Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate/fuse into the structure of your bone, they help prevent bone loss and potentially gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. Our aim is that no one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.

Tooth-saving

Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighbouring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched and this is a significant long-term benefit to your oral health.

Confidence

Dental implants will allow you once again to speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They are secure and improve the biting force, which has health benefits in that digestion and absorption of nutrients is improved. They’ll allow you to say goodbye to worries about lost dentures and denture adhesives.

Reliable

The success rate of dental implants is an excellent option for tooth replacement.

Dental Implant options

Replacing A Single Tooth

If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

Replacing Several Teeth

If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.

Replacing All Of Your Teeth

If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.

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.
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.
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.
Your 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.
They look exactly the same as your natural teeth.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
