Are You Looking For A Dental Implant Dentist?

Nature gifts us with only two sets of teeth; milk teeth and permanent ones. Unfortunately, our teeth cannot regenerate like other body organs and tissues. That is why once a natural tooth is lost, it cannot grow back, and the only option available is to replace it with a prosthesis. 

If you have also lost one or more natural teeth and have difficulty eating or speaking, you might be searching for tooth replacement options. While many options are available to replace missing teeth, dental implants are the most sought-after, reliable, and long-lasting option. But what makes dental implants so popular, and where can I get the best Implantologist in my area? We will answer these questions in this blog. So, read on to find out more!

Can I Get A Full Mouth Of Dental Implants?

Whether you have lost a single, multiple, or all teeth in your mouth, you can get them replaced with dental implants. So, it is possible to get a full mouth of dental implants. However, it is not necessary to get an implant for each missing tooth. Instead, your dentist will use only four implants in each jaw to support a complete fixed bridge. This type of prosthesis is known as an all-on-four implant-supported prosthesis, and it is regarded as the most reliable option for someone who has lost all their teeth. 

Is It Possible To Do Dental Implants On Every Tooth?

Yes, it is possible to get an implant for every missing tooth. However, it is not necessary. For example, if you have lost 2 or 3 adjacent teeth, your dentist will place two implants in the missing tooth gap, which will support a 3-unit bridge to replace your teeth. So, your dentist will decide after a clinical examination regarding the number of implants needed to replace your missing teeth. 

Are Same-Day Dental Implants Safe?

Same-day dental implants refer to a term where your dentist will perform implant placement and load it with a suitable prosthesis on the same day. Dentists typically wait a few months before they load implants to ensure optimal healing. Meanwhile, a temporary prosthesis is placed over the implants to restore the aesthetics. However, it cannot be used for chewing. While same-day dental implants are safe, they are not used very commonly. Furthermore, they require excellent surgical precision and treatment planning to ensure their success. 

Can You Bite Into Food With Dental Implants?

Yes, you can eat all your favourite foods with dental implants. However, you can only start eating once your dentist has placed the permanent restoration over the implants. Why? Because immediately after implant placement, your dentist will attach a temporary prosthesis so that you don’t have to go without your teeth. However, you cannot use them for chewing as it may affect the implant’s healing. Once the permanent prosthesis has been placed, you can eat anything without restriction. 

How Much Do All On 4 Dental Implants Cost In The UK?

One of the questions that are commonly asked from dentists is the cost of all-on-4 implants. While there is no definite price for all-on-4, as it varies according to each person’s treatment needs, the average cost of all-on-4 in the UK is between £7,000 to £14,000. Your dentist can give you an estimate of your treatment costs after treatment planning has been performed. 

How Successful Are Dental Implants?

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, there is no match to dental implants. In fact, they are the next best thing to one’s own teeth. Research has shown that the 10-year success rate of dental implants is more than 95%, which is higher than any other tooth-replacement option. So yes, dental implant treatment is highly successful, provided an experienced and qualified implant dentist performs it. 

Can I Get A Dental Implant Years After Extraction?

Ideally, dentists recommend their patients get their teeth replaced immediately after their loss. This is because when a tooth is lost, the jawbone around it starts to degrade faster, making it thin, fragile, and unsuitable for implant insertion. So, if one waits for a long time before getting implants, there may be insufficient bone available to support them. However, this does not mean that it is only possible to get implants if a long time has passed after tooth loss. Instead, your dentist can replenish the required amount of bone tissue with a bone graft procedure so that you can get your teeth replaced with implants. However, it is ideal for replacing one’s teeth as soon as they are lost. 

How Much Does It Cost For Dental Implants For The Whole Mouth?

The cost of getting an implant-supported complete prosthesis depends on various factors, such as the patient’s oral health, the status of the underlying bone tissue, the dentist’s skill and location, and the patient’s age and medical health status. However, it may cost you up to £15,000 to replace all your teeth with an all-on-4 implant-supported prosthesis.

After having some hiccups in my treatment which were quite anxiety inducing and annoying. I've been treated by April and Shankar for the past few months. They set things right and restored my faith in the clinic. The 5 stars are for them.

This is my second review in addition to my original review I left below earlier. Today 08/08/2023 remarks the end of my braces journey with Waldron Dental clinic. I cannot recommend this place any more! I had big gaps between my tooth with weird structured front tooth. Waldron Dental Clinic team was able to close all gaps and give me the natural Hollywood smile. It is money that is well spent and if time goes back I will still chose Waldron Dental Clinic over any other clinic. The team there is very skilled, patient and you feel directly that they know what they are doing. They are always willing to answer all questions and explain what they are doing and why! Also, a point that is very worth mentioning, for the retainers, they have an advanced technological equipment that takes a 3D copy of your tooth when you take your braces off. It is 10x more accurate than the traditional moulding technique that all Dental Clinics use! The retainers I received were fitting is perfectly from the first time!! Well done Waldron Clinic Team! All the Best ———————————————————————— Mr. Grant from Waldron Dental Clinic has just served me via a phone call - 13.08.2022. I don’t really usually leave reviews but he absolutely deserves. I need to say that I absolutely had one of the best customer experiences in terms of help for personal reasons. Mr. Grant did not even hesitate to help and he just straightaway understood that we all as human beings we face sudden personal issues that wouldn’t help us to attend an appointment Speaking about him, his voice was very clear and the phone quality was superb. I did not fail to miss a single word, not as what we experience nowadays on customer service phone calls from other companies. His voice tune was very calming as well and he tried to make the phone call cheerful and he didn’t fail to put a smile on my face this morning! Thank you Mr. Grant, I hope Waldron Dental Clinic relevant people will view this review Many Thanks, Faris ElBalawi
