At Etwall Dental Practice, we understand that you may have questions and concerns about implant dentistry. We’re here to provide you with expert knowledge and address some of the most frequently asked questions to help you feel confident about your journey to a beautiful and functional smile through dental implants.

What is Implant Dentistry?

Implant dentistry is a field of dental care focused on the replacement of missing teeth using dental implants. Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots. They provide a stable foundation for crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer several advantages, including:

Who is a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Most individuals with good oral health are suitable candidates for dental implants. A thorough examination by our experienced dentist will determine your eligibility. Factors such as bone density, gum health, and overall health play a role in candidacy.

Are Dental Implants Painful?

The procedures are typically performed under local anaesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort. You may experience some mild soreness after the surgery, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Our team will provide you with post-operative care instructions to ease your recovery.

How Long Does the Implant Process Take?

The duration of the implant process varies from patient to patient. It typically involves several appointments, including the initial consultation, implant placement, healing period, and crown or restoration placement. In general, the entire process can take a few months, but the result is a beautiful and permanent solution.

Are Dental Implants Safe?

Dental implants have a long history of safety and success but success largely depends on your oral health, so a thorough evaluation is essential.

How Do I Care for Dental Implants?

Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential. Avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption will help maintain the health and longevity of your implants.

What Are the Alternatives to Dental Implants?

Alternatives to dental implants include dental bridges and removable dentures. However, these options may not offer the same stability, aesthetics, and long-term benefits as dental implants. Our dentist will discuss the best options for your specific situation during your consultation.

Can Dental Implants Fail?

While dental implant failure is rare, it can happen. Factors like poor oral hygiene, smoking, or underlying health issues can increase the risk of failure. Regular follow-ups and proper care can help minimise this risk.

What are All-on-4® and All-on-6® Same-Day Teeth?

All-on-4® and All-on-6® are innovative dental implant techniques designed to provide patients with a full set of teeth, often in a single day. These techniques use strategically placed dental implants to support a fixed, non-removable dental prosthesis. All-on-4® typically uses four implants per arch, while All-on-6® utilises six implants. The goal is to restore your smile and functionality quickly.

What are Implant-Retained Dentures?

Implant-retained dentures are a hybrid solution combining the stability of dental implants with the affordability of dentures. Instead of relying solely on adhesives or suction, these dentures are securely anchored to dental implants. They offer improved stability, comfort, and confidence compared to traditional dentures.

What is a Single Tooth Implant?

A single-tooth implant is a dental implant used to replace a single missing tooth. It consists of an implant post, an abutment, and a custom-made dental crown. This solution offers the most natural and functional replacement for a missing tooth.
