What To Expect During And After Your Dental Implant Treatment

With dental implants, there’s a lot to think about. Will they look realistic? Will they match your smile? Will you be able to eat and chew as normal? And what about the procedure itself?

Whatever your questions, our expert dentists are here to help. We carry out dental implant treatments routinely and in almost all cases, treatment is highly successful. To find out more about what’s involved, what you can expect from your new smile and how to recover after your procedure, read on.

Tooth implants in short

You might be new to tooth implants entirely, or simply want to know more about them before booking a consultation. In either case, it’s good to know that these false teeth are as attractive as they are effective. Matched to the exact shape, size and colour of the surrounding teeth, and able to withstand normal biting and chewing forces, you won’t find a replacement for missing teeth that’s as durable, reliable and aesthetically pleasing.

Treatment near Marylebone

You’ll begin your tooth implant journey with a thorough oral health check, to make sure you’re suitable and find out whether any other treatments might be needed. You’ll have impressions taken of your smile to create the new implant, and then you’ll be booked in for the procedure itself. A tooth implant is placed root first, with the crown fitted after this has healed. The crown is made of porcelain and the root is metal – both being tolerated well by the body, and strong and sturdy enough to last a lifetime (with the right care!).

Aftercare with our specialists

Caring for a new tooth implant is straightforward: soft foods while healing takes place, followed by a high standard of oral care – think brushing, flossing and mouthwash. Then, you’ll need regular dental check-ups to make sure the tooth implant stays put and the rest of your teeth stay healthy. You might be given pain relief and antibiotics, so make sure you take these as directed. Your new tooth is also susceptible to staining, just like your natural teeth, so make sure to reduce staining foods and drinks and keep on top of cleaning.
