Dental implants (also known as tooth implants or denture implants) are used as part of a surgical process that connects the implant with the bone of the patients jaw and is then finished with the addition of a crown, bridge or denture. In order to implant teeth,or have an implant tooth,dental implant surgery is carried out after the initial assessment. The surgery may be done under local anaesthesia with or without sedation and there is very little discomfort post operatively. Then after a healing period, implant dentures, crowns or bridges are fitted.
Patients who are experiencing problems tolerating dentures, whether they are loose fitting or chewing food is very difficult , find that implant dentures hugely improve their quality of life.
Usually these have a 10-15 year lifespan but there are a number of factors that can affect the lifespan of teeth implants including how much stress is put on the implant as well as the health of the patient, especially concerning the tissue in their mouth. However, dental implants and denture implants can have up to a 98% success rate and when looked after correctly they can last for many years.
