Frequently Asked Questions

A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is screw or cylinder shaped.

Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at the precise location of the intended tooth. Often the implant can be placed at the same time as removal of the tooth, all on the same day.

If an implant has a screw-thread on its outer surface it can be screwed into position and if it does not, it is usually tapped into place. The main aim during installation of any implant is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into microscopic roughnesses on the implant surface.

As long as your have healthy gums and enough bone to support an implant, you should be suitable for dental implants. The best thing to do is to contact Dr Black for an initial consultation who will be able to determine your suitability.

What to Expect

Your Consultation with Dr Black

Consultation with Dr BlackAt your initial consultation appointment Dr Black will discuss your concerns and assess the health of your teeth and mouth. It is likely that an X ray will be needed to check suitability for an implant. Occasionally a CT scan will also be required. You will be asked to fill out a medical form which Dr Black will run through with you. He will then be able to discuss all the different treatment options that are available for you along with an explanation of these treatments, costs and time scales so that you can make an informed decision of the best option for you.

Your implant placement appointment
At the start of your appointment Dr Black will explain the different stages that will take place. The local anaesthetic will gently be administered to ensure that you do not feel anything during the implant placement. You will then be asked to thoroughly brush your teeth and rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash. The surgery will be set up with sterile drapes and Dr Black and his assistant will be wearing sterile hat, gown and gloves. A sterile hair net and gown will be placed on you along with a disinfectant skin wipe. A strict sterile protocol is followed to ensure a high implant success rate. A small incision is placed in the gum so that the implant can be placed followed by some resorbable sutures. You will be asked to rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash for 1 week after the procedure.

Consultation with Dr BlackAfter dental implant placement you will be asked to rinse with an antibacterial mouth rinse for 1 week after the procedure. You may wish to take analgesics, however most patients find that this is not necessary. A review appointment will be arranged for 2 weeks after the implant placement to ensure satisfactory healing and to remove any residual sutures. Dr Black is always available for any advice during this time.

Reviews From start to finish my treatment was excellent many appointments over a year until my final one having my implants fitted. I chose to be sedated as it was a lengthy procedure & I woke up to a stunning set of teeth. Reviews

Dental Implant - Case Study 2
Case study after

I was very undecided about having a dental implant as I was absolutely petrified at the thought of all the procedures. However, Gordon explained all the options with pros and cons which enabled me to make an informed choice. He made me feel at ease during the treatments, carefully explaining every step along the way. The implant has blended perfectly with my other teeth and I sometimes forget which tooth is the implant. I would not hesitate to have another one if I lost another tooth
