Dental Implants Buckingham

Do you suffer from unstable teeth, bone loss, gum disease or dentures that keep slipping? Or are you self-conscious about your smile? We can offer you a life changing solution with same day dental implants.

Dental Implants are a life changing treatment that replaces missing or loose teeth with a permanent single tooth that never has to be removed. The dental implant is fixed to the jawbone, in effect replacing the tooth that came before it.

Essential Dental Implant Q&A

Dental implants have a success rate exceeding 97%, and as long as you continue to care for them there is no reason they won’t last you a lifetime.

Dental implants should be treated as your own teeth. So if you are making regular appointments with your dentist and hygienist this will ensure you get the maximum use out of them and reduce the risk of a replacement being needed in the future.

As with your natural teeth, if you neglect them you may start to see the effects of gum disease and other dental hygiene problems.

As with any surgery, different people’s bodies react in different ways. However, choosing a surgeon that has a special interest in dental implants is essential.

No. The beauty about dental implants is that they can be used to replace just one or two teeth, or used to replace an entire upper and lower arch of teeth. This makes the treatment very versatile and therefore suitable to a wide range of dental patients.

Before finding out if dental implants will work for you, we will need to carry out a dental examination and appropriate x-rays and or scans. This will allow our dentist to assess the health and condition of your oral hygiene, and to find out if the bone of your jaw is adequate to accept a dental implant.

If there is not enough bone to accept the dental implant, we can usually offer you treatment that prepares the jaw to accept one.

Dental hygiene is also important as any signs of gum disease can cause infection when the dental implant is fitted. We may recommend a course of hygiene visits prior to having the dental implant and this will ensure that your jaw and gums are nice and healthy to receive the new implant.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. However, in order to prolong the life of the implant, it is important to look after it. Our dental team will provide you with a full aftercare package to maintain your dental implant/implants.

Regular flossing and brushing combined with hygiene visits will ensure, not just your implant, but all of your teeth are kept in the best condition. We usually book you in for a series of hygiene visits after treatment. This gets you used to stay on top of your oral hygiene and we can send you reminders if you wish, to make sure it doesn’t slip your mind.

Yes. The implant may sit inside the gum, but it does not stop you from developing gum disease. However, as long as you follow our aftercare procedure and keep up your visits there is no reason you cannot keep on top of gum disease and ensure your gums are in top shape.

No. They are permanent fixtures and are essentially like your normal teeth. Should one become damaged we can easily replace the tooth and in most cases this will not require a new abutment to be fitted to the jaw.

If you have dental implants as anchors for semi-permanent dentures, otherwise known as false teeth, you may be able to remove the set of teeth for cleaning.

If one tooth is missing it can be easily replaced using one implant. If you have multiple teeth missing it may be possible to use a few implants as anchors and build a dental bridge to fill other gaps. This will reduce the cost of dental implants and provide a very similar aesthetic result.

When you visit the practice we can advise you on all of the options available to you.

As long as we prepare the area to accept the implant before the procedure takes place, it is very rare that it will not be accepted. In the rare case that this does happen the implant can be removed and the cause of the failure assessed. Once we know what caused the problem the issue can be addressed and a new implant placed.

This is very rare and is another key reason to ensure you only use a qualified and experienced dental implant surgeon.

This is always the big question and we will start by saying that dental implants are not a cheap option.

The reason for this is it takes a very high level of skill to carry out the procedure, and the cost of the equipment needed in order to complete the treatment runs into hundreds of thousands of pounds.

A single implant can start from £2,500. However, the more implants that are needed the more cost-effective the price will become. You don’t simply multiply the number of implants you may need by £2,500, as this would be much more expensive than the treatment really is.

We offer a full range of payment plan options that can make paying for them as easy as possible.

In many cases of missing teeth, dental bridges can be used and we do regularly use and offer them at Claydon Dental. The difference is that a dental bridge involves using the teeth either side of the missing tooth to create the bridge. This requires a small amount to be taken from each tooth in order for the bridge to be fitted.

As one tooth has already fallen out, it may be that the teeth either side are not stable enough to be used as a bridge, and reducing these teeth further may unseat them even more.

In these cases, a dental implant would be the best solution. However, don’t rule out a dental bridge if the teeth either side are in good condition.

Claydon Dental have three surgeries in the UK. You can find us in Milton KeynesBuckingham and Cheltenham. We also share a dental hospital facility in Oxford for more advanced implant cases.

Our team have over 25 years’ experience in dental implant treatments and have completed hundreds of dental implant surgeries.
