Dental Implants in Collindale 

How to replace missing teeth in Colindale 

If your teeth are in very bad condition, or perhaps you have several teeth missing, you may feel self-conscious and embarrassed. Replacing your failing teeth or replacing the missing teeth in your mouth not only makes you look and feel better, but it can protect the health of any other teeth too.

 

There are 2 options to replace missing or failing teeth:

  1. Have a dental implant fitted
  2. Wear dentures

Dental implants are the only natural and permanent way to replace missing or failing teeth. Dental implants are made up of 3 parts: The implant which acts as your replacement tooth root and is gently inserted into your gum and jawbone. A rod is then inserted into this implant which holds the final piece – the crown in place. The crown acts as your new replacement tooth and this is what is visible in your mouth.

 

There are 2 types of dental implants:

  1. Single dental implant which is used to replace one missing tooth. This would be suitable if you have one or maybe two missing teeth
  2. If you have several missing teeth, or if most of your teeth are failing, or if you have no teeth at all, then you might be more suitable for all-on-4 dental implants. All-on-4 dental implants use just 4 dental implants to support a full set of new permanent teeth.

What are dental crowns and how do they differ from dental implants? 

The crown refers to the top part of the tooth which is visible in your mouth. If you have a tooth which is cracked, worn down, fractured or badly decayed, a new dental crown can be used to repair it. The main difference from dental implants is that a dental implant is used to replace your complete tooth including the root. A dental crown simply replaces the top part of the tooth.

Dental crowns are usually made from porcelain and are matched to the natural colour of your teeth.

The process of fitting a dental crown is quite easy but may require two appointments. First, your tooth is prepared for your new crown. This usually involves cleaning and shaping your existing tooth. Then an impression will be taken of your tooth so that a custom-made crown can be made to fit. At this stage you may be fitted with a temporary crown whilst your final crown is being made.

At your next appointment, your new dental crown will be fitted into place. A dental crown should last for many years providing that you have a good oral hygiene in place.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Implants 

Can anyone have dental implants?
Dental implants are suitable for most people who have lost a tooth or are missing several teeth. There is no age limit to having dental implants fitted. The occasions when we find that dental implants are not suitable for a patient are mostly due to the medical health of the patient is not good or the jawbone of the patient is not strong enough to tolerate dental implants.
Are dental implants painful?
The procedure for dental implants does involve a surgical procedure and therefore you may experience soreness or discomfort after the process. Pain is kept to a minimum during the procedure because a local anaesthetic is administered. If you experience discomfort in the few days after the dental implants have been fitted, you can take paracetamol or painkillers to help. You should experience no pain or discomfort after the initial few days of having a dental implant fitted.
Which is best – dental implants or dentures?
There is no right or wrong answer to this question and only you can decide which option is right for you. Dentures are a less expensive form of treatment, but dental implants are permanent and with good care and attention will last a lifetime.
