Dental implants are possibly the most advanced way of replacing missing teeth. The main benefit of placing an implant is that there is no need to alter (prepare) any healthy adjacent teeth. They have been under development for over 30 years and can now ensure biocompatibility and longevity.
Dental implants are made of titanium and inserted by a surgical and precise technique into the bone where it osseo-integrates with the bone. On top of the implant, above the gum, a crown can be placed at a later date that will appear and function as a normal tooth.
A very important stage of implant placement is the treatment planning. Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination, create study models and do a radiological assessment before proceeding to the implant placement itself.
At Ealing Dental Studio we use the highest quality implants that will ensure the best possible outcome and patient satisfaction.
Warranty for implants – Terms and Conditions
Dental Implants – 10 years warranty
- In the rare case an implant fails to osseointegrate and it has an immediate effect on your prosthesis, the implant will be removed. Where required the implant and the prothesis will be replaced. A minimum charge for the materials will be associated with the procedure. Once an implant has reached 10 years old, any replacements will be fully chargeable.
Porcelain Teeth – 5 years warranty
- Any fracture or failure of porcelain or an accessory will be repaired or replaced without charge. It is very important that patients who are bruxists (grinding their teeth) wear night splints. These appliances will be given along with the delivery of the final prosthesis. After five years, any prosthetic corrections or replacements will be chargeable.
Validation of the warranty
The patient is responsible for attending regular checks, X-rays and hygienist maintenance as recommended.
- The patient should follow a good daily oral hygiene schedule, as recommended
- The patient is responsible for brushing adequately and following good oral hygiene. Not doing so can lead to gum inflammation and bone loss, which will cause negative effects on the prosthesis and the implant.
- If it is indicated that the patient should use a night splint, they must comply with this request as part of their ongoing maintenance.
