How do Dental Implants Work?

Dental Implants work by acting as a replacement to lost or failing teeth to give you a full and natural looking smile once again. They are able to be administered as a single implant or multiple implants to suit your own specific needs and the procedure is very similar to any other dental procedure – so there is no need to start getting worried about how you will actually have these implants. We here at Nelson Road Dental Practice understand that many may be apprehensive about undergoing the implant procedure, and are able to provide useful information for those looking to have dental implants Kent.

When visiting us, all possible stress is taken away as Nelson Road Dental Practice and Dr. Mohsin Uddin are highly-skilled and experienced in this field, with Dr. Uddin himself being the youngest ever clinician to be accepted on to the highly competitive FGDP Diploma in implant Dentistry; being recognised as the Gold Standard in Implant Training by the General Dental Council. With Nelson Road Dental Practice you are assured to receive the dental implants Kent you really want.

The implants work by using titanium rods to act as a replacement for your natural root and support a crown so that they will look like natural teeth in your mouth. Virtually anyone can have these implants and upon deciding that this is the way forward for you and your mouth, we will provide an extensive consultation to assess your requirements and personal goals. In addition to this, we will take moulds of your teeth, a series of photographs and possibly a radiograph or CT Scan to fully understand where we can place a dental implant.

As also mentioned above, the procedure will be a comfortable one and will be carried out while you are awake, although sedation is sometimes used for nervous patients. You will be able to relax in our hands as we use the most advanced equipment and used air compressors whilst strictly following conditions set out by GDC and the Faculty of General Practitioners.

The success rate of dental implants Kent is reassuringly high, being proven to be 95% successful after a 10-year period and constantly increasing as technology and skills push forward. We here at Nelson Road Dental Practice are committed to using our expertise to keep pushing the success of this procedure forward and will continue to work with you afterwards by setting up regular evaluations with the hygienist making sure the implants are still working for you and that you are still smiling.
