Dental Implants: The Procedure & How They Work
The Bespoke Smile based in Berkshire has been repairing and replacing smiles for hundreds of patients in Slough for years and years.
Highly recognised as cosmetic and restorative experts in the dental industry, we are often highly requested and trusted for our skills and techniques.
For example, Dr Sam Jethwa, owner and leader of the Bespoke Smile is the go-to recommendation for restoring smiles. Working closely with Dr Gurs Sehmi, who has placed hundreds of implants throughout his career has meant the clinic has become the first choice for many local residents in Marlow.
Fantastic dental clinic! The staff were very professional, friendly and knowledgeable and the clinic clean and modern. Definitely recommend. Thanks, Bespoke Smile – Sunjiv S, Upton
We help patients with missing teeth feel happy with once again with their smiles as well as strengthening the underlying oral foundation to keep their mouths healthier for longer.
Why you should get implants
Dental implants are designed to replace broken, lost or rotten teeth and are often a preferred choice for patients who wish to pass on alternative treatments like bridgework or dentures.
Dental implants have the power to drastically change your life, restore oral functions and enhance your appearance.
Many patients in Slough choose them because:
- They are permanent and long-lasting
- Strong and durable
- Mimic natural teeth
- Restores speech and chewing difficulty
- Much more comfortable option to dentures
- Promote good oral health
There are some negative consequences of not rebuilding your oral structure and foundation when losing a tooth.
Impacting other surrounding teeth that have to take on the pressure, tooth loss often results in patients losing essential bone structure in their jaw, which can lead to further tooth loss.
Implant surgery procedure
Unlike teeth in a day, the dental implant process does not happen overnight. Occurring only over a few months, there are three necessary stages that every patient will be required to go through.
- Additional or pre-surgical treatments
- The implant placement surgery
- Osseointegration & recovery process
What to expect
Sedation is only necessary for patients who are very sensitive or nervous. The overall implant procedure is carried out in our dental offices under local anaesthetic. Many patients report it to be painless with only some mild discomfort around the gums afterwards.
- Placing the implant
- Attaching the abutment
- Fitting the crown
During your implant recovery process, you may experience slight swelling or bruising. This is completely normal and can be relieved by over the counter medications.
The discomfort should not last long and patients are permitted to return to work the day after.
Taking care of your implant for life will involve no specialised care. All you will need to do is care for it as you would your normal, regular teeth with regular brushing, flossing and routine check-ups.
