Dental Implants in Luton

Losing one or more teeth can be extremely distressing for patients and have long term consequences not just for the aesthetic appearance of their smile but for their health, self-confidence and mental wellbeing.
Dental implants are often the most beneficial and preferred option for replacing a space in the mouth where a tooth has been lost. Not only do they look and feel like real natural teeth but if maintained correctly, they have been shown to last longer than alternatives, without the need to sacrifice adjacent teeth in order to replace the missing tooth.

What Are Dental Implants and How Do They Work?

Dental implants are an innovative, modern-day solution for replacing missing teeth and offer many advantages over some of the other prosthetic options such as dentures and bridges.
A dental implant is a titanium screw which acts like a replacement root for the missing tooth. It is surgically implanted into the jawbone and left to heal, during which time it will gradually fuse with the bone and the implant will be anchored securely in place. When it is properly healed, an artificial tooth which perfectly matches those around it can then be fitted on top for beautiful, natural results.

Who are Dental Implants Suitable For?

For those who have lost some or all of their natural teeth, bridges, dentures and flexible dentures are not the only solution available. Thanks to advances in dental technology, tools and techniques, dental implants have been clinically proven as a safe and effective solution for restoring patients’ teeth, their smile and ability to chew, bite, eat and speak with confidence.
Almost everyone who has lost a tooth or teeth can benefit from dental implants, as long as they are in good general health and don’t have any untreated tooth decay or gum disease.

However, not every patient will be a suitable candidate for dental implant treatment and your dentist will need to carry out a full oral health assessment prior to treatment to determine whether or not it is an appropriate option.

Some of the general health factors that can affect suitability include;

  • Pre-existing loss of bone volume
  • Medication
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is the name for a metal rod or screw that is surgically placed in the jawbone and used as a mounting post on which artificial teeth, crowns and bridges can be secured. Because of the way dental implants work, they are not only aesthetically pleasing but are the closest you can get to real teeth in terms of function.

Dental implants are an effective, reliable, hard-wearing, long-term solution for patients missing one, multiple or even all of their teeth. Not only does it work to restore the look and function of the missing teeth but delivers incredibly natural results, allowing patients to eat, smile and laugh without feeling self-conscious.

What is the dental implant process?

The process of dental implants is usually completed over several months.

Under local anaesthetic, a titanium screw or rod is implanted into the jawbone. This will act as a replacement root and gradually fuse or ‘bond’ with the bone over time through something known as osteointegration, providing a stable anchor to support the attachments.

Once the jaw has healed after around 6-12 weeks, an abutment, which is a small connector, is attached to the implant and on top of that the crown or artificial tooth is then secured into place.

How long can dental implants last for?

Dental implants are a long term, permanent solution for tooth loss and can last for 20-30 years or even more if they are properly cared for. However, the number of years you get from your dental implants can depend on a various factor such as;

  • Your oral hygiene – be sure to brush consistently and attend regular dentist and hygienist visits.
  • Health and lifestyle – dental implants in the mouth of patients who smoke, drink heavily or have generally unhealthy lifestyles will be more likely to fail.
  • Bad habits – implants can be damaged from constant or excessive biting of nails or chewing hard items.
  • The dentist – the lifespan of the implant can depend on the competence and experience of the dentist who placed it.

Where it is in the mouth – because of frequent chewing, implants located at the back of the mouth do tend to fail more quickly.

Dental Implants – The Benefits

If you have one or more missing teeth, then there are a few different options that your dentist can recommend but the best choice will depend on what is most suited to your individual dental needs and the deliverable results.
There are a number of great advantages to opting for dental implants, such as;

  • The implants stability ensures that they not only look but function just like real teeth with no slippage or discomfort.
  • For patients who have struggled with the effects of tooth loss they can help to improve their appearance and restore their confidence.
  • The shape, colour and size are designed to match seamlessly with the teeth around them for beautiful, natural results.
  • If properly maintained, dental implants are a long term, if not permanent solution that can last for 20-30 years or more.
  • Dental implants restore your bite and allow you to confidently eat anything and everything, from chewy steak to crunchy apples.
  • Bone loss can occur around the site of missing teeth, but dental implants help to stimulate and encourage new bone growth and maintain bone mass.
  • The loss of teeth overtime can cause the face to develop a sunken appearance, but dental implants help to support the facial structure, preserving its shape and features.
  • They need to be extremely well-maintained by the patient, with regular brushing, cleaning and routine dental check-ups to keep them in perfect working order.

I’ve had my third time visit there today, each time they welcomed and treated me nicely. Super friendly environment and... quality service provided by Rob and her lovely nurse Paulina (I hope I get the name right, sorry if I’m not). Rob has been super focused and he has great passion, enthusiasm for his job. Paulina was charming and really take care of me. Can not be asked for better service. I really enjoyed the tunes they played and overall there is nothing bad I could possible say. Really happy with the job they done and the result speak for itself. I highly recommend it for anybody who’s looking for a dentist. All credit to these guys, worth the money and time for sure! I’m definitely will visit them again! Would love to say a huge thanks to you guys!read more

I was in bad pain with my tooth, I had never been to this practice before but I rang as an emergency and they were able... to fit me in straight away to be able to sort my tooth out for me. Dr Jagsi Fitted me in and done a root canal on my tooth as soon as he could, I’ve always dreaded a root canal and I am a very nervous patient but he made my whole experience so relaxing and put me at ease! The Root canal was completely pain free! Rang me after my appointment to see how my tooth was ect. Since then I have moved to this practice had more fillings done with Dr Jagsi, again completely painless and no problems after.Would 100% recommend going here. I no longer dread my dentist appointments!!read more

I highly recommend Rob Devine after attending the practice this week for a check up. My teeth need quite a lot of work... and like many people I am not enthusiastic about attending the dental surgery. Rob made me feel at ease. He was confident and very clear about the work that is needed and explained simply what would be required. A very reassuring and gentle young man. Mandy the dental nurse is lovely, so pleasant and friendly.read more

I haven’t seen a dentist for quite some time as, like many people, I hate going and only go if I think there may be a... problem. This morning I saw a dentist called Rob who was really lovely. He put me at ease and explained everything that he was doing and what he was going to do and why (x-rays). I have another appointment with Rob for fillings which normally I would feel nervous about, but I don’t! Also I found both the nurse and receptionist really friendly and professional and the practice very clean withCovid safety in mind. I now intend to go for regular check ups with Rob.read more
