Dental Implant Experts in Dublin - Milltown Dental

A whopping 74% of all adults have had to have a tooth extracted. Tooth loss is often caused by trauma, decay and other oral diseases. For centuries, the only option to replace a missing tooth are fixed bridge and dentures; but in the last two decades, dental implants have evolved as the best option to replace one or more missing tooth.

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant or tooth implant is an artificial tooth placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or denture. A dental implant replaces the root of the missing tooth and provides a sturdy and robust foundation for one or more replacement teeth or crowns.

Dental implants are made up of titanium. Titanium is considered the most biocompatible metal because it resists corrosion and has the ability to fuse together with human bone.

Our Motto

Our Aim is to provide a friendly professional environment where you can avail of the best Dental Treatment in Dublin.

Why are Dental Implants needed?

Do I need a dental Implant?

Dental implant replaces one or more teeth that have been removed due to decay, gum disease or any other mouth diseases. Here are some circumstances when dental implants are indicated:

 

Missing one tooth in between healthy adjacent teeth (Single Edentulism)

Single tooth is missing in between two healthy teeth. Instead of having a fixed bridge, you may opt to have a dental implant placed to prevent the need to reshape the healthy teeth.

 

Missing more than two molars or back teeth (Partial Edentulism)

The back teeth (molars) are often the first teeth lost as a result of decay. Conventionally, if almost all the back teeth are missing without adjacent teeth on both sides, there is no other way but to replace it with a partial denture. With dental implants, more than one tooth can be replaced all at the same time without the need for a natural tooth’s support.

 

Complete Edentulism

Instead of having a full removable denture, an implant-supported prosthesis can be an excellent choice.

Types of Dental Implants

What options do I have in terms of Dental Implants?

Depending on which teeth you are missing, where they are located, and the state of your jaw, nearby teeth etc, there are many options available to you.  At Milltown Dental Clinic we offer a free consultation, to ensure you are fully informed on your current options, and can make an educated decision on what is right for you.  Below are some of the Dental implant types

  • Front tooth implant
  • Back tooth implant
  • Full Arch Dental Implants
  • All on 4 Dental Implants
  • Dental Implants with Bone Grafting
  • Extraction + Immediate Implant Reconstruction

Benefits of Dental Implants

The hidden benefits of Dental Implants

Apart from the obvious aesthetic benefit of a Dental Implant, there are a wide range of secondary benefits that should be considered.  Missing a tooth in your mouth can have a lot of negative effects on your dental and general health.  Here are some of the benefits of Dental Implants.

  • Decreased risk of endodontic problems to adjacent teeth. A fixed bridge requires removal of tooth structure to adjacent teeth while a dental implant would not need to prepare the adjacent teeth.
  • Decreased risk of caries of adjacent teeth. Dental implant restores normal tooth contact with an adjacent natural tooth which improves the ability to clean the sides of it such as flossing.
  • Improved aesthetics. Dental implant replicates the appearance of a natural tooth.
  • Improved maintenance of bone in the toothless site. If you lose a tooth, the bone around the hole starts to degenerate slowly changing the shape of your jaw. A shrunken jaw makes you appear decades older. However, placing a dental implant in the toothless site can stimulate bone growth and preserves the loss of more bone
  • Improved function. Unlike removable prosthesis which has chances of getting dislodged, dental implants are fixed. A fixed prosthesis makes it easier to speak and chew. Thus they function better

Can everyone get Dental Implants?

Am I suited to Dental Implants?

To see if you are a suitable candidate for Dental Implants we highly advise you to take up our offer of a Free Consultation.  Here we fully analyse your situation and advise you based on these results.

Dental implants may mean you won’t have to worry about your smile anymore, but there are certain conditions wherein a dental implant might not be recommended.

For instance, someone with gum disease (gingivitis) is contraindicated for dental implants. Fortunately, dental implants can still be placed after the dentist has treated the gum disease. Your compliance with appointments and home oral hygiene is critical to the success of treating gum disease.

Persons with serious illnesses such as blood disorders, nerve problems, cancer and uncontrolled diabetes are restricted from having dental implants.

Patients under 16 years old are not yet recommended to have dental implants due to incomplete development of bones.

How successful are Dental Implants?

Do Dental Implants Work?

According to Institute for Dental Implant Awareness, dental implants are 95%-95% successful for 40-50+ years or a lifetime. The overall general health and proper oral hygiene of the patient is a major factor to consider in the longevity of dental implants.

Caring for Dental Implants?

Dental Hygiene is Important

Your teeth require conscientiously oral hygiene routine at home and regular dental visits, so as your dental implant. Take care of your dental implant the same way you’ll do to your natural teeth. Keep it plaque-free by brushing and flossing regularly.

If you have dental implants, make flossing a vital part of your oral hygiene routine. Use unwaxed tape or implant-specific floss to clean the surrounding area of the implant. To floss the implant, insert the dental tape on both sides of the implant. Wrap in a circle, crisscross in front and move in a shoe-shine motion.

Water flossers are recommended to patients with dental implants to reduce plaque formation around the implant (and your other teeth too!). Using a non-metal tip, use water flossers once to twice a day.

Smoking cigarettes should be stopped before and after the placement of dental implants to prevent developing inflammation.
