What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace missing teeth and are an alternative to complex restorative treatment on your natural teeth, such as conventional bridges and dentures. Dental Implants are constructed from Titanium and each implant is placed directly into your jawbone. Dental implants are safe, non-toxic, and biocompatible, with your bone growing around the implant and osseointegrating into the fixture itself.

First provided over 30 years ago, dental implants have evolved to provide a treatment option that has a 95% success rate over 10 years. Now considered to be the number 1 option to replace a missing tooth, dental implants Lincolnshire treatment is the future of replacing any troublesome gaps between your teeth.

Why are Dental Implants used?

The use of dental implants at Elegant Smiles, Sleaford,  treatment and osseointegration has been well documented for the last 30 years. This treatment option has been backed by a multitude of scientific literature and clinical experience. Dental Implants Sleaford treatment can:

  • Replace one or more teeth without affecting any adjacent teeth.
  • Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable denture.
  • Provide support and retention for a denture.
  • Preserve the bone to avoid that “caved in” look.

The exciting prospect for many patients undertaking dental implants Sleaford treatment is to finally discard their dentures or avoid them totally.

Dental Implants Procedure

The initial consultation, assessment and planning will occur with one of our dentists here at Elegant Smiles. The options that are appropriate to your case will be thoroughly discussed with you, with preoperative pictures and your tooth shade may be taken. Impressions may also be taken to allow our ceramist to provide a diagnostic wax-up, which will physically allow you to visualise and approve the intended outcome. You may then require specialised imaging in the form of computerised tomography (CT scan). which will allow your Dentist to have a 3D reconstruction of your jaws, that will allow for better planning for the best outcome.

If there is an insufficient quality and quantity of bone to place your dental implant into, osseointegration will be compromised. As this is key to the success of having dental implants fitted, you may require a bone augmentation procedure that will allow your dental implant Spalding treatment to have optimal results. Your dentist will also discuss all the eventualities and possibilities in the initial stages before your treatment.

The placement of a single dental implant is a relatively straight forward procedure and is routinely carried out under local anaesthetic, with many patients reporting that it is easier than having a tooth extracted. In the interim period, you may be provided with a provisional restoration of the highest calibre and aesthetics.

Many dental implant Lincolnshire treatments require a second stage, once osseointegration has occurred. Performed under local anaesthetic, the buried implant is uncovered, with impressions taken. These are then sent to our Elegant Smiles ceramist who will handcraft your aesthetic crown or bridge. Again, in the interim period, you may be provided with a provisional restoration.

At your next visit, the provisional restoration (if present) is carefully removed, and your custom-made crown or bridge is tried out. If you are happy with the fit and the appearance, your Dentist will cement or screw in the restoration to the implant.

There are hundreds of different dental implant systems currently in use, with only a handful of these dental implant systems having any substantial evidence in dental research literature to back their use. Even fewer dental implant systems have any substantial long-term follow-up evidence to support their use on patients also. Here at Elegant Smiles we use high-quality dental implants from Straumann, Megagen and Nobel Biocare.

There are many alternative cheaper types of implants available in the market, but as there is no long term research to back their results, we feel at Elegant Smiles it is not justifiable to provide them to our patients, even if they are cheaper for both us and our patients.

By having the best dental implants Lincolnshire treatment, using materials from one of the major dental implant companies, we can ensure that in years to come if your implant needs any maintenance such as a new screw or an abutment, the company will still be able to supply the parts needed.

Dental Implant treatment at Elegant Smiles  is performed by Dr Razaq and Dr Ul Haq who are all certified with post-graduate training in the placement of implants. Together, they have the combined experience of placing thousands of dental implants. The procedure is performed in a surgically sterile environment where the surgery is disinfected and set out in a similar manner to a hospital environment, with clinicians also scrubbed up. This is important as it reduces ambient bacterial levels and hence reduces the chances of dental implant failure.

Please be aware, all dental implants placements at Elegant Smiles are carried out under surgical conditions, and there is no extra charge for this.

Sinus Lift

Your Dentist may inform you that a bone graft is not required, instead opting for a sinus lift in the upper jaw. The maxillary sinus is a hollow cavity designed to make your head lighter. As we age, our sinuses enlarge. If a dental implant was placed without appropriate planning, it would not have optimal bone support. A sinus lift procedure is designed to raise the floor of the sinus, thus allowing your dentist to place your dental implant into solid bone, not disturbing the sinus.

Surgical Stents

Elegant Smiles’ dentists always aim to provide the most aesthetically pleasing and functional restoration possible, whilst aiming to provide maximum longevity. If you require advanced dental implants Lincolnshire treatment, further planning and investigation will be needed. A CT scan may be required, which will allow your dentist to visualise your jaws in 3 dimensions.

The CT scan provides ultimate control over the planning and placement of dental implants. The scan will accurately allow the specific size, type, and angulation of the dental implant(s) to be planned before your procedure even takes place. A surgical stent may be manufactured from this 3D computerised model, which acts as a specific guide for placement of your dental implants, thus significantly reducing the possibility of operator error.

What our patients say?

Testimonial 1:

From the initial consultation through to the final visit, Israr and his staff have been nothing short of excellent. My treatment over a 9-month period involved several different procedures and throughout Israr was very reassuring, very professional and very precise. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

Shaun Haslam

Testimonial 2:

I have been hugely impressed with Dr. Razaq, who has “come to my rescue” several times for both minor and major treatments. He is clearly very passionate about his practice, patients and dentistry in general. If you want a professional, caring and compassionate dentist who listens, knows their stuff, studies the latest techniques, and creates a welcoming environment, then I would definitely recommend Tulip.

Simon Kaufmann

Testimonial 3:

I personally am seeing Mr Israr Razaq, to whom I can confidently award 5 stars for always being prepared to go the extra mile to comfort my fears. Especially as I am petrified of the dentist. All my visits and treatments have been completely pain free. He immediately put me at ease, clearly explained all my options and my treatment. What more could anyone ask for.
