We have listed below a number of common, dental implant related questions we get from our patients…


Dental implants frequently asked questions

Want to know more about dental implants? Your question has probably been asked before – please see below for common questions or contact us.

If looked after correctly, dental implants will last for many decades. We use the Straumann dental implant system which has proved to last a lifetime, achieving fantastic results for all of our patients.

For most dental implant-supported teeth you will be able to clean around each supporting dental implant by brushing and flossing in just the same way that you would around your own teeth.  In some areas we recommend flossing, interdental toothbrushes and other cleaning aids to maintain excellent oral hygiene. For the first few months after the dental implants are placed, your dentist may ask to see you more frequently.

However, once your dentist is satisfied your treatment is performing as planned, ongoing care will be similar to patients with natural teeth.

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that uses transplanted bone to repair and rebuild diseased or damaged bones. If required, we will discuss this procedure with you in detail at your initial appointment.

The most important visit is the initial consultation where the Specialist will go through a series of questions regarding your previous dental and medical histories. This will help to determine whether or not dental implants are the best option for you.

If you are in good general health, dental implants are likely to be a suitable option for the replacement of your missing teeth.  However, habits such as heavy drinking and smoking can compromise the initial healing time and have a detrimental effect on the long-term health of gum and bone surrounding each implant.
