Our dental implant process

December 16, 2021


If you struggle with missing teeth, and are looking for a treatment to help with this, then dental implants Nottingham could be for you. We are able to replace any amount of teeth with this treatment, from a single tooth to a whole set, so it can really help to improve the look of your smile.

What is a dental implant?

Before getting into how our dental implants Nottingham process works, it is important that you know what they are. The implant will be made up of three main parts, the screw, the abutment and the crown. The implant screw is the part that is inserted into your jawbone, and is the foundation for your new teeth. The second part is the abutment used to attach the third part, which is made out of porcelain and custom-made to fit in with your other teeth. The crown is what makes all the difference visually, as it looks just like a natural tooth.

The process

Before we begin with the treatment itself, we will first invite you to our practice for a consultation appointment. This is a vital step in the process as it means we can examine your teeth and take various scans such as X-rays to ensure you have enough bone to perform the treatment. If you don't have enough bone in the specified area, we may be able to give you a bone graft to make it possible for you to get implants. It is also important that we have a consultation with you as it means we can get to know you as a person, and discuss what results you want to get out of the treatment.

If you are eligible and decide you want to get dental implants Nottingham with us, we will send off your scans so that your custom-made crown can be created, and book in your surgical appointment. This is when we will insert the implant screw into your jawbone. We do this by opening up the gums in the desired area to expose the bone, and inserting the implant. Once this is done, we will close the area back up and leave it for a while. This part is very important, as it gives time for the implant to fuse with your bone, creating a very strong foundation for the crown.

After a few months, once they have fused, you can come back to our practice and we will attach the crown, and you're all done! You will really see the difference our dental implants can make once the crown has been attached, and you can enjoy your new and improved smile.

Why choose this treatment?

We believe that getting dental implants is one of the best ways to replace your teeth. This is mainly due to their ability to improve the appearance of your smile, as they are made to fit the shape of your mouth and face. Another thing that makes the treatment so popular is the sturdiness of the implants, as they will feel and act just like your natural teeth. This means that they can withstand the usual pressures of chewing that your teeth usually do, so no food restrictions needed!

Our team at Hilton Dental Clinic are very well-experienced and knowledgeable concerning the dental implant procedure. You can rest assured knowing that you will be in great hands throughout the whole process, and that we will do everything possible to give you the results you're looking for.
