Implants are like artificial roots of teeth which are placed into the jaw. By placing an implant into the bone, to replace a missing tooth, you can avoid any facial changes, protect the bone and maintain tooth alignment. Once the implant screw is placed in the bone, the dentist will place an implant crown on top of the implant screw. This implant crown is crafted by very experienced laboratory technicians to ensure it feels and looks as natural, as the rest of your teeth.
If you are suitable for dental implants, our dentists will carry out a full detailed examination and may need to take a 3D CT scan to accurately assess if implants are the best option for you.
I cannot praise Grange Street Dental Practice enough. I am a nervous patient and have found all the staff to be extremely professional and very reassuring. I have always been able to get appointments on the day of calling or the following day. My children have also attended the practice and the staff were brilliant with them.
Mr Rawal and his team are changing my serious fear of any dental intervention, including the hygienist, into confidence. Never before in over sixty-five years of dentistry have I experienced such painless treatment - and my pain threshold is high. All the staff are friendly, informative and reassuring and I can thoroughly recommend the practice on every level.
I visited this dentist recently as an emergency as I had extreme pain in my tooth. After being 2 weeks on antibiotics which weren't working I found this dentist and contacted him immediately. It was late on Saturday evening and it was no bother for him to see me. He was very nice and made me feel very comfortable and relaxed straight away. After taking X-rays he extracted the tooth pain free and so fast. I cannot thank him enough. Would definitely recommend.
No. As long as there is enough bone to place the dental implant, you will be eligible for this treatment. If there is not enough bone, extra bone can often be grafted. Generally, the dentist will need to take a CT Scan to assess the amount and thickness of bone currently present.
No, we will ensure you have a temporary crown or some sort of replacement tooth to fill any missing spaces while the dental implant integrates with the bone. In all cases you will be explained exactly how the implant will be placed, temporised and then finally restored, ensuring no surprises or embarrassing days with missing teeth.
We will take every measure to ensure you are comfortable and pain free during the dental implant procedure. All treatments are carried out under local anaesthetic and after the implants are placed we supply painkillers to ensure that our patients remain comfortable. We also offer sedation, for those patients who are really nervous and would rather be in a state of complete relaxation.
Yes. As part of our consultation we will screen your gums and bone for any infections. Prior to implant placement your remaining teeth and gums need to be healthy. We will offer any additional treatment to ensure that your mouth is healthy prior having implants.
