Initial consultation for dental implant treatment at Blossom Dental Care & Implant Studio, York
Our implant expert, James Harrison, will carry out an in-depth consultation to help evaluate if dental implants are suitable for you. He will ask questions about your medical history and examine your mouth and teeth as well as taking X-rays, photos and models of your teeth.
Expert planning of your dental implant treatment
We take a great deal of pride in our detailed planning for tooth implant treatment at Blossom Dental Care & Implant Studio in York as this helps to ensure the very best results. We’ll use the X-rays, photographs and models taken during your assessment to work out the optimal position for an implant, how many tooth implants you will need and the quality and amount of bone to place the implant/s into. We will also extract any failing teeth at this point.
Placement of the dental implants
Tooth implants are made of 3 parts – a titanium screw/rod, a connecting part-the abutment and a crown (the part that looks like a real tooth). During this stage, the screw is placed precisely into your jawbone during a small surgical procedure carried out under local anaesthetic. An incision is made in your gums followed by a small hole in the bone with a specialised drill. The screw part of the tooth implant is then inserted into the hole. Finally, the site is stitched with self-absorbing stitches.
Healing and integration
Tooth implants can take from 3 months to 6 months to integrate with your bone. You’ll be able to wear temporary replacement teeth or dentures during this time to avoid any obvious gaps. When healing and integration is complete Impressions are then taken and in conjunction with our award winning laboratory your state of the art, bespoke crown and bridges are made.
Long-term dental implant care
Caring for your dental implants is extremely important – if they are neglected they are far more likely to fail. One of their significant benefits is that you can brush and floss as you would your natural teeth. We’ll give lots of advice and guidelines on how to do this properly. It’s also essential to attend all check-up and hygiene appointments.
