Dental implants explained

For most patients with tooth loss, dental implants are the best solution for replacing missing teeth. Comfortable, strong, and natural-looking, they’re a fixed, long-term solution here in Pontefract, near Wakefield. Tooth implants can hold a single replacement dental crown, bridge or denture – it all depends on how many missing teeth there are. These are fixed in place with an artificial titanium root, which integrates into the jawbone over time. As well as being a natural-looking, attractive solution to tooth loss, dental implants in Pontefract can also maintain the structure of the lips and cheeks. This is because tooth loss can cause the surrounding bone to shrink, causing an aged, caved-in appearance, while the dental implants preserve the bone.

Frequently asked questions

About dental implants here at Ropergate Dental Care & Implant Studio

  1. How does a dental implant work?

    They look, feel and work like real teeth – whether replacing one tooth or many or fixing dentures in place. – Under local anaesthetic, a titanium screw is first placed beneath the gum line, into the jawbone – Over 3-6 months, the healing process causes the bone and implant to fuse. A temporary crown or bridge can be worn at this time – When healed, the screw acts as an artificial tooth root and a crown or bridge is attached.

  2. Does treatment hurt?

    The dental implant procedure in pontefract is carried out under local anaesthetic, to minimise discomfort. At Ropergate Dental Practice, we also offer our nervous patients dental sedation. Finally, over-the-counter painkillers can help ease discomfort and pain following treatment.

  3. How long does the process take?

    While everyone is different, oral health factors like gum disease may affect treatment times and healing times vary, a typical dental implant treatment takes 3-6 months*. If you need any teeth extracting, this is done before the dental implant treatment begins. Once the implants are placed and healed, an impression is taken in order to create a bespoke crown and/or bridge to fit on top of the implant, which is done at your final appointment.

  4. How will my smile look?

    At Ropergate Dental Practice, we want all our patients to feel comfortable and confident with their smiles. We’ll give you every opportunity to preview your smile before the implants are fitted – for most, you’ll see your smile in your own mouth before we carry out any work.

  5. How long do tooth implants last?

    With proper care, they can last many years. One of the best things about them is that they’re just as easy to look after as your natural teeth – with twice-daily brushing and flossing, and regular check-ups and hygiene appointments.

  6. Who can have dental implants?

    Very few cases lead to a patient being unsuitable for implants. Before carrying out your treatment, we’ll conduct a thorough assessment to ensure you’ll be able to benefit from them.

  7. How do I look after my tooth implants?

    You can care for them through brushing and flossing twice a day, as well as attending regular check-ups.
