Dental Implants in Birmingham

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed within the jaw bone under the gum. Once the implant has fused with the bone, the implant is used to fix a crown, bridge or denture that sits above the gum.
Dental implants are considered to be the gold standard treatment for the replacement of missing teeth. They are completely safe and they look, feel and function like your own natural teeth so you can smile and eat with confidence.

Relax – you’re in safe hands.

How Many Implants Do You Need?

The quantity of dental implants required is determined by the number and location of your missing teeth. Typically, one dental implant is used to replace each missing tooth. In cases of multiple missing teeth, costs can be optimised by considering implant-supported bridges and dentures, providing an efficient and cost-effective solution tailored to your unique needs.

Before and After Dental Implant Cases

We’re so proud of our work and the difference it makes to our patients’ confidence and lives. Our Birmingham based dental implant treatment is truly transformational as our patients have reflected in their reviews.

Step-to-Step Process

Step 1

The need to replace a missing tooth could be the result of an accident or because there was no predisposition for a tooth at birth.

Step 2

The dental implant is installed in the jaw bone. No healthy teeth are affected or damaged. With other replacement solutions, adjacent teeth might need to be ground down to support a bridge.

Step 3

The abutment is attached to the dental implant. A crown is then placed on the abutment, fitting perfectly at the edge of the gum.

Step 4

The new tooth is now complete and it is virtually impossible to see the difference between the existing teeth and the new tooth.

Step 1

Some people lose teeth in the back of the mouth. This is typically caused by gum infection (periodontitis) or by teeth cracking due to previous fillings.

Step 2

Between two and four dental implants are installed for a dental implant bridge. This solution does not affect your own teeth. The bridge will function for many years, regardless of the condition of your existing teeth.

Step 3

Abutments are attached to dental implants. The next step is to fit a bridge; the new set of teeth is placed on the abutments.

Step 4

The dental implant bridge is now in place and can withstand the strong chewing forces that occur in the back of the mouth. It feels and functions like natural teeth.

Step 1

If you have lost all your teeth in one or both jaws, you can choose a permanently anchored dental implant bridge or a removable prosthesis that is connected to two or more dental implants. This is called an overdenture. This type of overdenture remains in place more firmly than a conventional removable prosthesis. For the most natural looking solution, the permanently anchored dental implant bridge is the answer when the prerequisites are met.

Step 2

For a permanently anchored dental implant bridge, several dental implants are installed to form a good foundation. Because the dental implants are anchored in the jawbone, they stimulate the bone tissue and help to maintain healthy bone levels and facial structures. An overdenture involves installing two or more dental implants that will be used as a secure foundation to attach the prosthesis.

Step 3

The abutments are attached to the dental implants and the bridge is fitted in place. All dental work is performed according to your prerequisites and wishes.

Step 4

The dental implant bridge, or the overdenture, is now in place. It looks and functions like normal teeth. You can now eat whatever you like and laugh without having to worry about the prosthesis falling out.

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental implant is fitted to the jawbone and acts as a support to a single or multiple false teeth. Implants are attached using a titanium screw and means that they are a permanent fixture and are designed to act in the exact same way your natural teeth would.

Dental implants have been trialled and tested over a number of years. They have now been developed so well that they can last a lifetime with the right care and treatment and here at Birmingham Dental Specialists.

That is perfectly fine. We are able to replace any number of teeth and if it’s one tooth or multiple teeth, we can help change your smile completely.

It all comes down to the health of your jawbone and if there isn’t enough bone to work with or if it isn’t strong enough, we look to other options.

A surgical procedure is required when placing the implant and is carried out under local anaesthetic. Our team can also arrange for sedation if you do not feel comfortable being awake during the treatment. You should not feel any pain during the procedure but you may be in slight discomfort during the following week; this is perfectly normal and should be expected.

It is a pretty long process but like all good things, they take time. The implant fitting needs to bond with the bone which can take up to three months in the lower jaw and up to six with the upper jaw. If you are having multiple teeth replace, you will have a temporary denture in the meantime and means that you can wear them throughout the healing process.

The treatment time can vary depending on your personal situation and how much work is required but roughly, you can expect between 3-6 months. This is from the initial assessment to the dentures being ready to fit on to the implants. Our dentists are highly experienced and will be able to tell you straight away how long your treatment will last, giving you a more accurate time scale.

Not at all. Maintaining your implants will be just like looking after your old teeth. Ensuring you are regularly brushing and keeping them clean, they should last for a number of years. Our team will be able to show you techniques how to maintain cleaning your gums and the surround areas of your implants and this should give you the information you need to make them last for as long as they possibly can.

As long as you make sure that you keep them clean and maintain them as our team tell you to, then they should be fine. Eliminating habits that are also going to cause harm like smoking is also vital to your implants lasting as long as they can. You shouldn’t have any problems as long as you look after them.

Our team here at Birmingham Dental Specialists are highly skilled and experienced and will ensure that your implants do not show. We use the latest technology and the highest quality implants and fit them with this in mind. We have various consultation periods to cover these details in much more depth.

If you are missing a number of teeth, you may need two or three implants fitted to your mouth to support a bridge. To replace all teeth in one jaw, a minimum of six implants is normally required depending on the strength of the jaw. It is usually 2 teeth per implant as a rule of thumb.

Depending on how many teeth have been fitted to your implant, they cannot normally be removed and can be only taken out by your dentist. If you have had a full set replaced, then these can normally be removed to clean.

This happens very rarely. If the implant becomes loose during the healing period or just after, then it is easily removed and healing takes place in the normal way. Once the jaw has healed, another implant can be placed there.

In many situations the cost of the treatment is only a little more than the cost of more conventional treatment with crowns and bridges. Dental implants can be expected to last for 15 years, at least. Many patients with dental implants would consider this treatment as a worthwhile investment in their health and well-being. There are other advantages too. An implant to replace a single tooth avoids the need to cut down the teeth either side for crowns to support a bridge. Poorly fitted dentures often mean you can’t eat or speak well due to the dentures moving about. Teeth attached to an implant do not cause this problem.
