Procedure of Dental Implants

Discover the transformative procedure of dental implants in Southend-on-Sea.

How It Works

Phase 1: Consultation and Treatment Planning

The journey to dental implants begins with a thorough consultation at Westcliff Dental Practice.

During this phase, our experienced implantologist will assess your oral health and discuss your goals and expectations. We take the time to understand your unique needs and tailor a personalised treatment plan accordingly.

Through detailed examinations, including X-rays and scans, we evaluate the condition of your jawbone and surrounding structures to ensure suitability for dental implant placement.

This initial phase sets the foundation for a successful and tailored implant journey.

Phase 2: Dental Implant Placement

Once the treatment plan is finalised, the next phase involves the surgical placement of the dental implants.

Under local anaesthesia, our skilled professionals carefully insert the titanium implant posts into the jawbone at precise locations.

These implants serve as artificial tooth roots, providing a stable foundation for the replacement teeth.

With meticulous attention to detail and advanced techniques, we ensure precise placement to optimise the long-term success of your dental implants.

After the procedure, we provide comprehensive post-operative care instructions to promote healing and recovery.

Phase 3: Osseointegration

Following implant placement, a crucial phase known as osseointegration begins. During this period, which typically lasts several months, the jawbone naturally fuses with the implant posts, forming a strong and durable bond.

This process ensures the stability and longevity of the implants by securely anchoring them in the jawbone. While osseointegration occurs, temporary restorations may be provided to maintain aesthetics and functionality.

Our implant team will closely monitor your progress during this phase to ensure optimal healing and integration of the dental implants.

Phase 4: Abutment Placement

Once osseointegration is complete, the next phase involves the placement of abutments onto the implant posts.

Abutments are small connectors that protrude above the gumline and serve as attachment points for the final restorations.

During a minor surgical procedure, the gum tissue is gently reopened to expose the implant tops, and the abutments are securely attached.

Our implantologist will meticulously select and place the abutments to ensure proper alignment and optimal aesthetics.

Following abutment placement, impressions are taken to fabricate customised crowns or prosthetic teeth.

Phase 5: Restoration Placement

The final phase of the dental implant process involves the placement of the permanent restorations onto the abutments.

These restorations, which can be crowns, bridges, or dentures, are meticulously crafted to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth in terms of colour, shape, and function.

Our skilled implantologist will use high-quality materials and advanced techniques to create lifelike restorations that enhance your smile’s aesthetics and functionality.

Once the restorations are securely attached to the abutments, you can enjoy the benefits of a complete and confident smile restored by dental implants.

I had a private emergency appointment booked by mistake in error. The private dentist looked at my missing filling and said it was only half missing. Told receptionist that a was on Universal Credit and the £ 73 charge was wavered by Private dental as it was a mistake by receptionist cancelled NHS six months check up. Appointment was rebooked to see my usual NHS dentist.

My husband and I have been patients at Westcliff Dental Practice for many years and have always had good treatment. However for the past 15 years or so we have been under the care of Daanish Chatteroo who has been excellent. I am a very nervous visiting the dentist but Daanish is always very kind, patient and puts me at ease. Thank you Daanish and all the staff at the practice.

It was my first appointment with Negin, the most pleasant of dentists, from Hungary.,she was so thorough and pleasant. I am so happy to be continuing my treatment with her. I have been with this practice over 25 years and have been disappointed since my long term practitioner left in Covid, but this has restored my trust. Thank you Negin. Brenda
