Why smart patients choose dental implants

untitled4   Dental implants are a replacement for a patients natural teeth, which can be lost due to tooth decay, disease in a patients gums, or injury. An implant is created from ultra strong
 titanium post, which acts as a replicate for the tooth root, this is securely fitted to the jaw bone. A crown or  bridge is then attached to the titanium root , which acts as a substitute tooth for the patient. Your cosmetic dentist should explain the process to you fully and discuss the treatment process and plan.


Any patient who has lost a part of a whole of a tooth, has broken, weak or loose teeth would significantly benefit from dental implant treatment. If a person has suffered from oral trauma, would benefit from dental implant treatment to improve their bite. If you are concerned about losing a loose tooth, or you have damaged and missing teeth, cosmetic dentist will be able to identify the best treatment for you.

 Broken , cracked or missing teeth can acutely  affect oral health and overall self confidence, this is because broken teeth are more susceptible to become irritated with inflammation and cause painful tooth decay. Missing teeth affects a persons bite badly, and can cause detrimental grinding down of a their teeth.

 Dental implants are not always appropriate for all patients , as the titanium post will need to be secured upon a patients jaw bone. Bone tissue quality and gum
condition may prevent an implant from being safely secured and fitted for a patient. A cosmetic implant dentist will examine your mouth  before your treatment ,  to see whether  your are a appropriate candidate for dental implant treatment.

 There are major benefits of having dental implants, they give a strong full set of natural looking , white and bright teeth.  They are more secure than dentures for a patient, so a patient will have better oral wellbeing. Dental implants can give a patient more confidence to smile,  knowing it is more attractive.

Many people are nervous of undergoing dental treatment, as they perceive it will be very painful. An experienced  cosmetic dentist should be able to reassure you, they will give patients local anaesthetic , so that a patient will not feel any pain during or after the implant procedure. As the anaesthetic wears off, a patient may feel some tenderness, and as the implants are healing there may be some swelling which can be combated with painkillers.

The implant dentist will be able to discuss how to reduce and treat pain or discomfort. An experienced cosmetic dentist should fully discuss the treatment plan and the process with a patient, so they will be fully  aware of the operation timescales.

Cosmetic dental implant treatment can be very expensive as the cost is per implant for patients, increasingly many patients choose to travel abroad for treatment.

Cosmetic bonding treatment can renew your smile.

Cosmetic bonding treatment is a cosmetic dental treatment which has been long used to transform a patients smile.
The cosmetic bonding treatment is specialised and involves a lot of the dentists artistic skill.  The cosmetic dentist will mould the correct amount and colour of dental composite for the patients ’ teeth, the composite is an resin which is moulded to a patients teeth to replace metal fillings,  reshape teeth , close gaps, and restore broken or chipped teeth.

The main use of cosmetic bonding treatments is for composite white fillings, as the dental composite bonding material can match the shade, luminousness and texture of a patients own natural  teeth. Silver fillings can be unsightly when a patient smiles, tooth coloured composite can replace old metal fillings. Cosmetic bonding is suited to smaller cavities in a patients teeth, as the material is not suitable for large areas.

untitled1Composite bonding treatment requires the cosmetic dentist to numb the area in the patients mouth by local anaesthetic.
The patients tooth surface, which the composite will be applied, will be cleaned to remove debris, the composite requires
a hygienic surface to bond to. The dentist will then choose a correct shade of composite, the tooth is shaped or contoured by the dentist.
The composite is then applied to the roughened tooth surface and exposed to a special light source, which activates and hardens the composite to set. The composite can be applied to a patients tooth in several thin layers , around 1mm-2mm until  the dentist has achieved the desired shape, translucency and texture. The dentist will then use their skill to polish the composite to achieve the desired shape and level finish.


The cost of cosmetic bonding varies , depending on the location, experience of the cosmetic dentist and the materials they use. The cost will also be based upon the treatment a patient requires. Cosmetic dental treatment can be expensive in the UK  and US , increasingly many choose to travel abroad for treatment.

How dental implants dramatically improve a smile.

Teeth  can be lost at any time, due to trauma, decay, gum disease , age or deep root canals could force a dentist to decide to remove a tooth rather than repair. Many people who lose a tooth or teeth decide to replace it/them with either dentures or a fixed bridge in order to regain an aesthetically pleasing smile , as well as functional reasons.

Increasingly dental implants are becoming a popular treatment to replace any missing teeth, as they are able to provide a patient a longer term solution, slow bone loss and also preserve any healthy tooth tissue for a patient.


What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are artificial substitute for the root portion of a patients natural tooth, it is fixed and secured into a patients jaw-bone to support a crown, or bridge , and can also be used to fastened a patients denture securely.  New technology in implants means that titanium can now be used for this procedure, a material that not only is well tolerated by a patients jaw bone and is able to integrate easily.

During the securing of the dental implant, the cosmetic dentists’ goal is to achieve a close seal between the implant and the surrounding jaw bone tissue, so they are able to fuse together , called osseointegration, which creates a secure support for the new teeth.

How is a dental implant placed?

The cosmetic dentist will need to assess the health of a patients teeth and gums, this is important as they need  to expose any signs of gum disease or decay , which must initially be treated. The cosmetic dentist should then create a treatment plan, following x-rays and a CT scan, which aids to asses bone quality before any treatment takes place. The implant procedure can be carried out using local anaesthesia, and IV sedation can be used the procedure will be long or for anxious patients.

The patients gum is cut and lifted, where the implant will be secured, and a tiny hole is drilled in the jawbone at the exact location of the intended implant. The titanium implant is securely fitted into this socket, and the dentist will then stitch the gum back to cover the implant.

Once the implant has been fitted, it is left to restore , heal and integrate with the patients jawbone , which  takes around six weeks to  six months. This time period allows the bone tissue to grow and anchor itself to the rough surface of the titanium implant.
The patient will be given temporary teeth or bridges, or can continue to wear dentures, during this healing period. The temporary teeth should not exert any pressure or force upon the healing implant(s). The gum will be then lifted again to attach a post to the implant, after the healing period. Around six weeks up to a month , depending upon treatment, when the surrounding gum tissue has developed, the permanent restoration can be attached to the patients implant.

Dental implants are also able to give a patient improved function, the implants are able to fully assimilate into a patients jaw, and so able they are able to function as suitably as your own natural teeth. Wearing dentures can make eating tough foods challenging, as dentures can become loose or patients cannot endure the hard biting forces, which cause pain in the gums.

Denture patients may suffer irritation and inflammation of the gums, to correct this dentures can be supported through implants which are able to improve function, enabling a patient to eat all foods with complete confidence and not worry about problems of bone loss or loose dentures.

A patient may require a cosmetic  dental bridge treatment, to replace missing teeth,  and this requires the healthy teeth adjacent to the gap to be removed to be able to fit a crown or bridge over the top of the tooth.

A dental implant can help a patient, as no support is required of a patients natural teeth , so a patients natural teeth wont be altered and the healthy tooth structure will not be drilled.images

An cosmetic dental implant gives a patient much better appearance then dentures or alternatives, as a dental implant Is identical from a patients natural teeth. Dentures often become loose, look unnatural as they don’t fit with a patients gums, and may need to be held onto the teeth with conspicuous metal clasps.

Dental implants are able to provide a patient with a much better cosmetic result, and are more functional than any nearest alternative.

Dental Implants are durable.

Dental implants have been used for many years to replace missing teeth, they are the most advanced technology available to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are able to last a lifetime, however the implant durability will be affected by trauma caused to patients, gum disease and poor oral hygiene.

Teeth correction through CEREC treatment

Many people may avoid cosmetic dental treatment as they view it as time consuming, although many      know it could  dramatically improve their appearance , so it is a catch 22 situation, people want to look good , but cannot spend excessive time attending appointments. CEREC treatment can restore a bridge, a crown or fit a veneer for a patient during a appointment. For the treatment, a dentists will need to take a digital image of the patients teeth, after this the dentist is able to immediately work on preparing a patients fitting.


The CEREC computer programme that designs the part for the patient, this is available for the dentist to fit and  secure instantly, and any problems with the fitting can be rectified during the appointment. This allows a patient  to walk out of the appointment, with a brand new white smile, and extra confidence. imagesCAQDXIYM

Life-Changing Reasons for Getting Dental Implants

DSC00772As a substitute for a missing or lost tooth it is hard to beat a dental implant for realism and authenticity. Dental implants are the only dental replacement that restores the whole tooth from crown to root and as a result is the sturdiest restoration available.

There are many reasons for losing a tooth ranging from accidental damage to gum disease but whatever the cause it can be a very painful and upsetting experience at any age. If a tooth has been knocked out or extracted due to decay it can be the cause of further dental complications causing pain and anxiety so it is always recommended by dentists to replace teeth as soon as possible. If a gap is left in the dental arc then it can cause the other teeth to move or rotate. This can lead to complications with bite and also increases the likelihood of further dental infection.

In view of this, here are some life-changing reasons for getting dental implants if you are losing your natural teeth:

* Dental implants preserve your jawbone’s integrity
Human bones require stimulation to maintain their size and density; if you don’t use them, you lose them.You must understand that each tooth has a specific job, and the loss of even just one, can seriously impair your bite and chewing capacity.So, when a tooth is lost or removed, the underlying bone is no longer stimulated by the pressure from chewing, which is crucial for maintaining your mouth healthy and the bone strong.A dental implant provides this stimulation, and helps maintain the bone’s integrity, because it works like a real tooth.The sooner you get a dental implant after losing a tooth, the more likely the bone will remain intact.

* Dental implants help you look younger
When we are young, everything is in place, and that’s why we look so good.Our teeth and jawbone support our facial features, keeping them in place; thus, when we lose a tooth, our face begins to transform, because things are shifting under our skin.Dental implants assist in slowing down this degenerative process and can even restore the missing structures.When you are able to smile and laugh without reservations, and eat anything you like, your morale, wellbeing and self-image improve dramatically.

* Dental implants help you speak better
Many older people use removable partials and/or full dentures that are bulky, difficult to wear, frequently come loose, and very often cause embarrassment as well as some difficulty when speaking.
To the contrary, dental implants are like real teeth, freeing one of all these inconveniences.


* Dental implants help maintain the tone and size of facial muscles
As soon as you stop exercising a muscle, it gets smaller, and there are numerous muscles underneath the skin of your face.

* Dental implants last much longer
Around 90% of normal dental implants are 100% successful, typically lasting twenty years or more.
Due to ordinary wear and dental decay, traditional dental bridges last between five and ten years, and eventually must be replaced; however, dental implants are free of decay because they are made out of titanium.

* Dental implants help prevent teeth from shifting places and distorting your bite
In the dental arch, there is a place and function for every tooth, and when one is removed, the others start moving because of the lack of pressure from the missing tooth.This can cause bite problems as well as the loosening of teeth, which then can lead to abnormal stresses and periodontal disease.
Finally, the result is more tooth loss.Dental implants can act as bookends, securing spaces where teeth are missing.

* Dental implants improve your smile
A smile is worth a thousand words… but when your teeth are not healthy, it can really affect your self-image.Dental implants can replace any missing tooth, helping preserve the bone that is needed to support full and beautiful lips. In fact, one of the most important uses of implants is to prevent bone loss in the front of your mouth.

* Dental implants help a person understand what is happening in their mouth
Teeth help you feel things in your mouth; you are aware when you bite on a tooth, but when it is removed, it is like cutting a limb off. You are unable to properly feel what you are chewing.While dental implants are not teeth, they do function as such, by putting pressure on the jawbone in a way similar to natural teeth; thus, offering the natural sensations expected when chewing.

* Dental implants work better than dentures
Dental implants last longer than typical removable dentures, are much more comfortable, and provide a dramatically better quality of life for the person receiving them.

While the investment may be slightly higher than that of traditional dental care, dental implants are well worth it in the long run.If you want more information and are interested in top quality dental implants at extremely affordable prices, contact us at 07974106163






SLActive – New Chemically-Modified Surface For Titanium Implants

Posted in Dental Implants by UK Dental Tourism on September 20, 2010

Dental implants have offered a successful way to restore teeth for more than 20 years. New challenges for improving the process include shortening the time to restore functionality and meeting aesthetic demands. Altering implant surfaces to help promote bone integration is one solution. SLActive, a new chemically-modified surface for titanium, the standard material of which implants are constructed, has shown positive results in this area.

An article in the August issue of the Journal of Oral Implantology reports a 98.2% success rate for SLActive at dental patients’ one-year follow-up. A noninterventional study was conducted to compare these results with previous findings of high survival and success rates among the same type of implants in a controlled clinical trial.

In this noninterventional study, results were obtained under common dental practice conditions where patient selection was not restrictive and technique was not controlled. Thirty dental clinics in Italy participated, and 226 patients were treated. Patients presented with a variety of risk factors, and both early (48 hours to 3 months) and traditional (3 to 6 months) loading of the implant was performed.

Osseointegration-the connection between living bone and artificial implant-can determine stability of the implant over time. Surface properties of the titanium implant, such as topography and roughness, can assist the chemical and biological interface that occurs in the early stages of healing and thus influence the long-term outcome.

The 98.2% success rate of this study was similar to that reported in formal clinical trials. The high success rate in both studies shows that the SLActive implant surface can be safely used with consistent, predictable results. Patients can expect integration of their implants that restores functionality for chewing and speech as well as aesthetics.

Secure Dentures With Mini Implants

Posted in Dental Implants by UK Dental Tourism on September 15, 2010

Nobody wants to lose their teeth but sometimes it happens either because of poor dental hygiene, accident or just as the result of age. When all or most of teeth have been lost it can often feel like there is little or no hope and can leave patients feeling quite despondent about the state of their teeth and smile. Lost teeth can also have a physical impact on the profile and structure on the face as the teeth act as a rigid support for facial tissue.

However, there are ways to replace missing teeth and with modern technology they are constantly improving in both functionality and appearance. Dentures have had a bad reputation in the past because they looked unrealistic and were also prone to falling out. Modern dentures however, are much better fitting and shouldn’t even need denture adhesive to keep them in place. Although many patients are opting to have mini-implants fitted to keep the dentures securely in place. These are small titanium screws that are anchored directly into the jawbone and can be used to clip dentures in place and hold them.

Modern dentures also allow much greater freedom to patients as they are capable of eating much more varied food and even things like apples present few problems. Our dentists will be able to give you a lot more information about the possibilities of modern dentures.

A well-made set of dentures should fit snugly around the gum tissue, using suction alone to remain in place. They should cause little or no irritation and be hardly noticeable when in the mouth. If your dentures are causing you problems then you need to make an appointment to have them sorted out.Ask your dentist to provide you with more information about how dental implants work and if you could be a suitable candidate.

Power Toothbrushes Can Prevent Implant Failure

Posted in Dental Implants,Preventive Dentistry by UK Dental Tourism on September 3, 2010

As a substitute for a missing or lost tooth it is hard to beat a dental implant for realism and authenticity. Dental implants are the only dental replacement that restores the whole tooth from crown to root and as a result is the sturdiest restoration available.Unlike other restorations, a dental implant will last a whole lifetime if properly cared for. A good standard of oral hygiene is needed to maintain the implant but the permanency it provides really sets it apart from other dental substitutes.Just like your natural teeth, you need to care for and clean dental implants. Plaque and bacteria that form around an implant can cause inflammation known as peri-implantitis. Daily cleaning of all the surfaces above and below the gumline is very important. The use of power brushes, whether electric oscillating or ultrasonic, can play a sound role in the successful maintenance of dental implants.

It is growing faster than any other segment in dentistry, and the suggestions for treatment planning and subsequent maintenance are being revised at a confusing, almost dizzying rate.Patients are bombarded with more information about maintenance every year. Dental hygienists are experts in helping our patients keep their dentition or implants healthy and their surrounding gums “in the pink.”

I believe the maintenance for dental implants should be discussed during treatment planning. Successful implant maintenance is time consuming. If patients do not receive enough education about implant maintenance, they cannot fully understand or make appropriate decisions about their care.

When we suggest the electric brush as part of home care aids, we should review the difference between natural dentition and dental implants. Natural dentition has a periodontal ligament and 13 Sharpy’s fibers that support the gum tissue and protect the sulcus from bacterial invasion. A dental implant does not have any of these anatomical features. It does not have a periodontal ligament, but a perimucosal seal (a thin band of tissue with one horizontal fiber running around the circumference), and the gum tissue may or may not have the complement of keratinized tissue. These two differences before all others, such as bacteria, restorative design, or the number of implants, will influence which electric/sonic brush I select.

Dental implants must be maintained more diligently than natural teeth due to the factors listed above. Implants and the surrounding tissue are subject to the same bacterial invasion as natural dentition. Just as the gingiva surrounding natural dentition can experience gingivitis, so can the tissue around implants. We just use a different term. Gingivitis that affects the soft tissue around an implant is called peri-implant mucositis. This is defined as reversible inflammatory reactions in the soft tissues surrounding a dental implant exposed to the oral environment, with no bone loss. Peri-implantitis surrounding dental implants is the term for inflammatory reactions in the hard and soft tissues, with loss of supporting bone.

Powered toothbrushes like Rotadent, Oral-B, Sonicare are safe for use around dental implants.By selecting a powered brush over a manual brush,patients who lack the motivation to do a competent job, or are challenged by physical conditions such as arthritis, will be able to properly maintain their implants.A very small head shaped like a conventional brush can give the best results.While choosing a brush head, you should choose one that will maximize cleaning of the flat surfaces, and that will carry the chosen toothpaste/gel or fluoride into the interproximal spaces.Softer the bristle its better.Remember — never use whitening or abrasive toothpaste when cleaning implant surfaces, no matter how soft the brush. Use a gel or fluoride rinse. Replace all brush heads every three months.

We also advice patients to use Waterpik, a fantastic tool to clean under the implant crowns and bridges.The Waterpik® Water Flosser fitted with a Pik Pocket™ Tip  is ideal for cleaning below the gum line. This soft tip is placed slightly under the gum-line and the gentle pulsations of water or therapeutic solutions flush out bacteria.Delivering CHX with the Waterpik Pik Pocket™ Tip is More Effective than Rinsing with CHX for Implant Maintenance.

We advise all our patients to regularly see the hygienist and to brush, floss their teeth and use mouthwash. This same advice is given to our implant patients as well.Once implant treatment has been completed, our hygienist will show our patients how to maintain their oral health and how to look after their implants. Implants need looking after just as much as natural teeth.For any more information please call us at 07974-106163








Lifelong Replacement With Dental implants

As a substitute for a missing or lost tooth it is hard to beat a dental implant for realism and authenticity. Dental implants are the only dental replacement that restores the whole tooth from crown to root and as a result is the sturdiest restoration available.

There are many reasons for losing a tooth ranging from accidental damage to gum disease but whatever the cause it can be a very painful and upsetting experience at any age.

If a gap is left in the dental arc then it can cause the other teeth to move or rotate. This can lead to complications with bite and also increases the likelihood of further dental infection.

The implant procedure usually takes place in three steps. Firstly, a screw is secured to the patient’s jawbone, with the top protruding just above the surface of the gum. This is then left to heal so that the bone and gum tissue can fuse to the implant in a process called osseointergration. In the second procedure a abutment is attached to the screw which will eventually allow the crown to be attached.Patients who have jawbones and gums which are strong, will particularly benefit from a dental implant. A good standard of oral hygiene is needed to maintain the implant but the permanency it provides really sets it apart from other dental substitutes.

Unlike other restorations, a dental implant will last a whole lifetime if properly cared for. Although the initial cost may be slightly more than other treatments, you need to bear in mind that once you have had implant surgery you are unlikely to need to spend any further money on future replacements.

If you are suffering from a missing tooth, see a dentist and ask about having a dental implant fitted to bring the smile back to your face. Call 177-6450704 for an appointment with Dr Goma.
