Dental Implants Sedgefield

Losing a tooth can significantly impact your oral health and appearance. Fortunately, modern dentistry offers multiple treatment alternatives to restore lost teeth while delivering outstanding results.

Dental implants are a modern solution to tooth loss, offering a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing alternative.

If you are interested in dental implants or are considering implants for the first time, this is the right place for you. At Westmount Dental, we are committed to providing you with the highest dental care possible and the most comfortable experience.


What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial roots that are surgically screwed into your jawbone to receive a crown or denture. Implants serve as foundations for prosthesis treatments that are fixed to your implant through a structure called the abutment. Therefore, dental implants have three main elements: the implant post, the abutment, and the final crown or denture.

Implants fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration, ensuring healing, stability and durability. Contact Westmount Dental Implants Sedgefield at 01740 629006  or email us at enquiries@Westmountdentalsurgery.co.uk to get free consultation about dental implants.


Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Although modern dentistry allows us to treat multiple situations with dental implants, not everyone is a candidate for the procedure.

Our ideal candidates have one, multiple, or all teeth missing, with sufficient bone density, excellent oral and general health, and a high commitment to their oral hygiene and recovery.

Unfortunately, patients with medical conditions such as diabetes, periodontal disease, or insufficient bone quality might not be eligible for dental implants until these issues are addressed.

An initial professional consultation is essential to determine your suitability and detect other factors that could influence your treatment negatively. Contact Westmount Dental Implants Sedgefield at 01740 629006  or email us at enquiries@Westmountdentalsurgery.co.uk to learn more.


Dental Implants Options

Among the most frequent dental implant types, we can find the following:

  • Endosteal Implants: these are the most common dental implants placed into your jawbone like small screws.
  • Subperiosteal Implants: these implants are placed on or above your jawbone when your bone quality is insufficient.
  • Zygomatic Implants: this alternative is used when there are no teeth in your arch and your bone is severely reabsorbed.

Additionally, dental implants can also be classified based on their procedure:

Single Implants: These are excellent options to replace one missing tooth and avoid tooth preparation on neighbouring teeth. A single implant supports one final crown and a temporary crown during your healing.

Multiple Implants: this alternative is useful when our patients have various continuous teeth missing. Usually, it involves employing various implants as anchors for a dental bridge or a partial denture.

Full Arch Implants: this option is commonly known as All-on-4 or All-on-6 implants. They are ideal for patients with no teeth who desire a complete new arch denture while maintaining all the advantages of implant dentistry. In this alternative, we use 4 to 6 implants to restore a complete set of dentures.

Dental Implant Benefits

Natural appearance and comfort: once your treatment is done, your new dental implants will feel and look like natural teeth. Most times, the results are practically unnoticeable, with perfectly matching colours and shapes.

Functional Improvements: implants can improve your appearance while restoring your speech and eating ability and preventing your remaining teeth from shifting. Once your implants are fully healed, you can eat without worries.

Durability and longevity: implants are known for their durability. They can last many years with the appropriate care and healthy habits. As a result, they are a cost-effective long-term solution.

Preservation of Jawbone: implants stimulate your jawbone, preventing bone resorption. By avoiding bone loss, your implants maintain your facial structure, giving you a young and natural appearance.


How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

The final price for your dental implants depend on multiple factors such as:

  • The number of implants needed
  • The type of procedure
  • The type of implant
  • Materials and brands
  • The complexity of the procedure
  • Additional procedures such as bone grafts and sinus lifting.

Moreover, due to their complexity and detail, dental implant procedures are typically more expensive than other tooth loss alternatives like dentures and bridges.

At Westmount Dental Surgery, we offer patients a range of dental implant options to meet their missing teeth needs. The prices we set will differ according to the individual case, but single implants start at £2,150+ onwards.

The Process of Dental Implants at Westmount Dental Implants Sedgefield

Initial Consultation and Planning

During this phase, we perform an initial examination, including a comprehensive oral exam, a complete medical history, blood tests, X-rays, and 3D imaging to trace a treatment plan and rule out possible complications.

 Surgical Procedure

 While the precise procedure varies depending on the type of implant and your needs, dental implant surgery usually splits into the following principal stages:

  • Local or general anaesthesia
  • Drilling and site preparation
  • Implant placement
  • Suture and healing button placement
  • Healing process from 4 to 8 months with temporary crowns or dentures
  • Gum surgery to place abutment
  • Final crown or denture placement


Recovery and Aftercare

Once your treatment is finished, you will require constant check-ups and good oral hygiene measures to keep your dental implants in perfect shape.

Daily care and oral hygiene are essential to prevent periodontal disease and other problems that can lead to implant failure. Therefore, follow your recommendations and keep excellent health to prolong your implants’ lifespan.
