What makes a successful dental implant treatment?

Dental implants are a clinically proven solution to restoring missing teeth. If you have lost teeth, there are several factors that will contribute to the success of your treatment with dental implants in Leicester.  The most fundamental factor for success is your oral health, as an unhealthy mouth is unlikely to be able to support dental implants.

Your oral health

Good oral hygiene is essential for the long-term maintenance of your dental implants in Leicester. Dental implant placement has moved on greatly in the last few years and patients who previously may have been considered unsuitable for such treatment now have the chance to enjoy the benefits of dental implants.

Exceptions to this include patients with an active infection, those who are a heavy smokers or have uncontrolled diabetes. This is because these reasons are known to increase the risk of implant failure.

How are dental implants placed?

Your dental implants in Leicester will be placed under local anaesthetic, with or without intravenous sedation, depending on each individual case. Your required implants will be inserted carefully into your jawbone. The implants themselves are made from titanium, which is a metal that fuses with our body’s bone and tissues, to create a stable and strong foundation that can last you a lifetime with the correct aftercare.
