New teeth, new lease of life

8 November 2016

If you have missing teeth then you do not need to be told about the effect they can have on your quality of life, especially if this affects your ability to choose the foods you want, or to smile with self-assurance. So, let us tell you about the joy of dental implants in Kent at Staplehurst Dental instead. Choosing to have dental implants is a big step, and it is one that you will find easier to take the more you know about what will happen. Visit our clinic for the most in-depth advice, but start here to get an overview.

Start to finish – how does it work?

The end result we are aiming for with dental implants is to have an implant in the jaw bone, which is then supporting one or more synthetic teeth.

The way we get there is first through a detailed consultation and examination. Your dentist will assess your suitability for dental implants by checking what you need, the density of your jaw bone and other things such as your general health. If you are well and have the physical capacity to support the implants in your jaw, then you can make the choice to go ahead. Some health conditions are contra-indicated but your dentist will ask you about these.

The next thing your dentist will do is make a comprehensive plan to insert the dental implants in Kent at our clinic. They need to pay attention to things like position in the jaw and angle of the implant to ensure that the new teeth work in concert with the motion of the jaw bone in a way that puts the least strain on the implants. They are very secure, but the forces of chewing are quite strong and multi-directional, so the more carefully their position is planned, the more likely it is that your implants will have the very long life that they are supposed to.

Next up is the actual insertion. You dentist drills hole in your jaw bone under anaesthetic and inserts the dental implants. This can be done at our clinic in Kent. Dental implants take a little while to mesh into the jaw bone so you will then need to heal for around eight weeks before having your synthetic teeth fitted for use.
