Dental Implant FAQ

 

What are dental implants?

A Dental Implant is a replacement tooth (dental prosthesis) custom-made for the individual.

The implant, usually a titanium peg, is surgically placed into the jaw bone and after a healing period, this fuses with the surrounding bone to provide a firm foundation to support the replacement teeth. The dental prosthesis is a custom-made crown, bridge or denture which are either fitted permanently or so they can be removed for cleaning.

 

Why would you need dental implants?

You may need dental implants for the following reasons:

 

 

What are dental implants made of?

The implant peg is made from titanium. A material which is well accepted by the body, meaning the implant can effectively act as substitute tooth roots.

The dental prosthesis is a custom-made crown, bridge or denture made from acrylic (plastic), nylon or metal.

 

What to expect from the Dental implant surgery procedure

  1.    The area will be numbed.
  2.    The bone is drilled and the titanium fixtures are positioned in the jaw bone.
  3.    You will be given temporary dentures/crowns.
  4.    Once the implants have fully healed, your replacement teeth are attached to the fixtures.

 

Can you have dental implants while pregnant?

The short answer is yes. You can have dental implants after your first trimester. Some Dentists will recommend waiting until after the pregnancy due to the radiation from x-rays.

 

What is the recovery time?

After the implant is in place there will be some pain from swelling and bruising. The healing period is often around a week. Temporary crowns/dentures will put in place until the permanent ones are put in 2- 6 months after.  This gives the implant time to fuse with the jaw bone and ensures a tight long-lasting fixture.

Smoking should be avoided during the healing process to reduce the risk of infection.

 

What can go wrong with dental implants?

Complications are rare during dental implant surgery but with any surgical procedure, there are risks. These will be made clear to you before surgery. Possible complications can be:

The risk of these can be reduced by choosing the right Dentist to carry out the surgery, having good oral hygiene and following your dentist instructions for care following the surgery.

Attending regular check-ups can also minimise the risk of complications and ensure your implants last for many years to come.  

 

What are the signs of a problem after dental implant surgery?

If you experience any of these symptoms after surgery you should contact your Dentist:
