. Dental Implants in Manchester – Your Top 7 FAQs Answered So youre considering dental implants in Manchester Well dont worry because youre certainly not alone. Around 500000 people worldwide undergo dental implant procedures each year to replace missing teeth. Yet and understandably that might not fill you with a great deal of confidence. What is apparent is that as an experienced implant dentist in Manchester there are a number of questions from those considering teeth implant placement that keep cropping up. With this in mind we thought wed answer 7 of the your most frequently asked questions hopefully giving you the relevant information you need to make a fully informed dental decision. So without further ado lets dive straight in.... Can I have dental implants on the NHS As a rule no This is why seeking a private dentist in Manchester is the best option. That said there may be some instances or circumstances where it might be considered. For instance in cases where people have lost teeth through an accident or serious disease and cant wear dentures then an implant based-restoration might be an option. How much do dental implants cost Implant-based restorations offer patients many different options and for this reason its hard to give an exact price. For example if one tooth is missing then this may be the cost of a simple implant with a restored crown In this instance depending upon where you go it will probably be somewhere in the region of £1800 -£2200. However if you have a larger gap where three or more teeth are missing then this might be restored using an implant retained bridge usually 2 implants holding a three-toothed bridge. This being the case then you should be looking at a cost somewhere between £4000 and £5000. Alternatively if all teeth are missing then its possible to fit a removable denture held in place by 4-8 implants and this can usually be done for a cost of somewhere between £9000 and £10000. All that said there are lots of other connotations which can affect the pricing so its always best to ask your chosen implant dentist in Manchester for a more accurate cost representation based on your specific requirements. How long does dental implant treatment take In some circumstances if the bone is good then a dental implant can be placed and fitted loaded with a temporary crown or bridge immediately. However in the vast majority of cases once the implant is placed healing time is needed for the bone tissue to fuse with the titanium implant. This creates a strong platform which then supports the crown. In terms of timescale it can take roughly 2-3 months to achieve what is know as osseointegration. In other cases where poor bone levels are discovered the patient will need a bone graft. This is left to heal for about 3 months before any implant can be placed. Altogether with bone grafting

and healing time the whole process can take 6 months or more from start to finish. How long is the surgery and is it painful The surgery time is usually over pretty quickly in some cases in as little as 30 minutes. Thats because most of the surgical planning is done beforehand. If more implants need to be fitted then it can take longer but usually no more than 2 hours. The procedure itself isnt painful at all. Because its carried out under a local anaesthetic patients shouldnt feel anything during implant placement. During the first 1-3 days after surgery patients may experience a little bruising and swelling but this should easily be brought under control using over-the-counter antibiotics or painkillers. Generally after 7-10 days patients should be back to normal. Am I a good candidate for dental implants in Manchester Provided that youre in relatively good health and have no underlying medical issues that may compromise the dental implant process then yes. Remember that age is no barrier to undergoing implant-based restorations. But what about bone density/depth As a general rule of thumb only 2 of implant consultations are unable to have treatment because of inadequate bone. Modern bone grafting procedures and an array of varying lengths and depths of implants means that in most cases dental implants in Manchester can still be placed. What if I smoke Its true that smoking can be problematic for dental implants so you may well be asked to quit smoking for the duration of your treatment time at least. How long can I expect my implants to last Over the years dental implants have become the gold standard of tooth replacement dentistry and are now recognised as the most predictable and long lasting forms of teeth replacement. Research has shown that up to 98 of all implants are deemed to be successful beyond 15 years of use and in fact many implants have already proven to last longer than this. Any implant dentist in Manchester will agree that with the right care diet and ongoing oral hygiene your implants stand a much better chance of survival. So it very much depends upon you and your long-term commitment. Are implants noticeable once in place If the process is carried out correctly and by a highly skilled private dentist Manchester patients will be pleased to know that neither they nor their friends/family will be able to tell that they have an implant-based restoration. This is because the implant crown the visible part of the implant is colour-matched to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the natural teeth. Not only that it should feel completely natural in the mouth and should also be treated just like one of your existing teeth with regular brushing and flossing.
