Durable Dental Implants in Kent at Dental Elegance

For many people, the loss or removal of numerous teeth can have a considerable impact on well-being. Having only a few remaining teeth can also be upsetting, difficult to deal with, and affect your happiness and quality of life.

Dental implants replace missing teeth, and they are an excellent alternative to dental bridges or dentures. Implants are titanium fixtures that we place into the jaw bone to replace the roots of an absent tooth (or teeth). Titanium Implants fuse with bone because they are biocompatible, and the body does not reject the material.

In appearance, implants look very much like a short post with ridges at the base resembling screw threads. The function of a dental implant is to securely anchor natural-looking false teeth. Implants are non-removable structures which help strengthen the jaw with stabilised bone levels, improve the overall health of the oral cavity, and preserve your youthful appearance.

As dental implants are a minimally-invasive surgical procedure, we spend plenty of time informing you of all the details prior to treatment. We want you to be prepared, comfortable, and confident in our abilities and your dental implants.

Our Dental Implants in Kent Look, Function, and Feel Natural

Dental implants are a treatment option for patients who have lost a single tooth, or multiple teeth. Implants are a surgical procedure, wherein our dentist embeds a titanium post into your jaw. As it heals, bone grows around the implant, keeping it firmly in place. The result is a smile that not only looks completely natural, but one that feels and functions more like your own teeth.

Unlike some dentures and bridges — which can be loose and unstable — dental implants provide a permanent replacement. Implants look and feel much better than dentures, and offer the same force for biting as fixed bridges.

The dental implant procedure is not always suitable for patients lacking healthy jaw bone; we will determine whether you are a suitable candidate for dental implants during your consultation.

Why Choose All-on-4 Implants?

Traditional dental implants require suitable bone mass to properly place the restoration. In this case, if sufficient bone mass is unavailable, patients require a bone graft — an expensive and invasive procedure.

All-on-4 has been developed over the last decade to provide the highest quality dental implant possible. These implants can be inserted with a tilt for patients with insufficient bone mass for traditional implants. The result is secure, healthy and natural-looking teeth with one quick procedure.

Because of their unique design and technique, All-on-4 suits almost anyone with missing teeth, even if they have insufficient bone mass.

Prior to surgery, our practitioners will fully evaluate your dental health and the treatment options available to you. This consultation includes an examination of your teeth and jaws, imaging of your mouth, and a full discussion of your needs and expectations.

The next stage of your assessment includes 3D imaging of your teeth and jaws using specialised computer software. The surgeon uses this program to plan the specific placement of your implants. Using this virtual technique results in a huge reduction in surgery time, and a chance to see what your procedure entails before treatment commences.

Our implantologist inserts your All-on-4 Implants based on the positioning they determine from the 3D rendering. Once inserted, we secure the multi-unit abutments, which hold your artificial teeth in place.

Your custom prosthetic bridge is made in a laboratory the day you come in to have your All-on-4 implants placed. These false teeth are delivered to your surgeon upon completion, so we can complete your implant procedure in a single visit. We secure the All-on-4 bridge using prosthetic screws, and check the fit and function before we declare treatment complete. At the end of the appointment, you will walk away with a brand new smile and fully-functioning teeth.

The All-on-4 Bridge

The All-on-4 ceramic bridge is the leading option for oral rehabilitation. It has been recognised as the most technologically and aesthetically advanced fixed prosthesis for patients who have lost all their teeth.

All-on-4 bridges combine extraordinary biomedical engineering with Nobel Procera™ CAD/CAM industrial science. The result is an outstandingly functional and great-looking solution beyond implants. Using biocompatible materials including titanium and ceramic, rehabilitation of the gums can now be achieved in addition to tooth rehabilitation.

The All-on-4 ceramic bridge was designed to replicate the movement and function of natural teeth. It has a unique design which gives you incredibly comfortable and hygienic teeth. Not only are they composed of individual ceramic crowns that work together to improve speech and chewing, but they are also low-maintenance, ensuring they are quick and easy to repair.

Dental Implant FAQs

Do dental implants hurt?

Getting dental implants can be daunting – but there is no need to feel apprehensive when you come to Dental Elegance for dental implants in Kent.

The dental implant procedure is typically done under local anaesthesia to numb the nerves around the implant area. We only begin once the tooth area is completely numb to ensure you don’t feel any pain. 

It’s common for patients to experience some discomfort after the dental implant procedure – but this usually subsides within 1-2 days.

If required, you can take over-the-counter medications to alleviate the pain.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants in Kent provide a permanent solution for tooth loss and can last decades, providing you care for them properly.

How long your dental implants will last can vary depending on your oral health, lifestyle choices, and medical conditions. However, simple things like regular brushing and flossing can help prolong their lifespan.

To ensure your implants last as long as possible, it’s a good idea to avoid biting or chewing hard items and drinking alcohol and smoking – both before and after the procedure.

At Dental Elegance, we provide all our patients with aftercare instructions so they have the best chance of successful, long-lasting dental implants.

How long does dental implant surgery take?

Dental implant treatment usually takes 3-8 months – unless you choose our revolutionary all-on-4 dental implants which can restore your full jaw in just one day!

The dental implant procedure includes a pre-surgery consultation (dental exam), implant surgery, post-surgery recovery, and crown fitting.

Typically, the more implants you require, the longer surgery will take. And if you need teeth extracting or a bone graft to strengthen your jaw, this will increase treatment time.

Most patients will be able to return to work the day after treatment. However, if you feel any soreness around the implant site, you can take over-the-counter pain relief.

Are dental implants in Kent expensive?

You can expect to pay anywhere from £2,000 per implant for dental implants in Kent, depending on how many implants you need and the complexity of the treatment.

Dental implants are not cheap but will provide a permanent solution for missing teeth, restoring your confidence and healthy smile.  

At Dental Elegance, our team will give you an overview of the costs in your initial consultation. We can also discuss the finance options available – allowing you to spread the cost of your treatment into affordable monthly instalments.
