Your Implant Journey At Willows Dental

Stage One – Discussion At Willows Dental, Wombourne

The first step is to meet you face to face and discuss how best we can help. Perhaps you have a single tooth that needs replacing? Or maybe you need multiple teeth replacing or even a new full set of teeth? We discuss which dental implants might be best for you.

Stage Two – X-Rays

Once you are ready to go ahead, we take X-rays and discuss your course of treatment. We look at more detailed information such as your general health, your existing and missing teeth, your gums and your chewing pattern.

Stage Three – Fitting The Dental Implants

This stage will vary according to how many dental implants you are having. Your dentist will give you a local anaesthetic and will then make a cut in your gum. A small hole is then drilled into your jawbone which will hold the titanium peg implant.

Stage Four – Fitting The Abutment

Dental implants have an internal screw called an abutment which holds the permanent false teeth in place. The abutment may be fitted at the same stage as the implants or they might be fitted at a later date.

Stage Five – Fitting The Replacement Teeth

Your replacement teeth may be fitted to the implant at this time, or they could be fitted at a later stage. If your new false teeth need to be fitted later, we will fit a temporary bridge or dentures to ensure gaps in your teeth are not visible between visits.

Stage Six – Enjoy Your New Smile!

Your healing time will vary according to the number of dental implants that you are having, but as dental implants generally is a minimally invasive procedure, most patients experience little discomfort.

Like hundreds of our other patients, we are confident that you will be thrilled with the end results and will look forward to showing off your new smile with confidence.
