Dental Implants Frequently Asked Questions

Explained by Implant Dentist in Ealing

You may be a suitable candidate for dental implants at Stunning Smile Clinic in Ealing if you are missing one or more teeth, have good overall physical and oral/dental health, and do not have any chronic medical or dental conditions. However, you may not be eligible for dental implants if you have a systemic illness, bone pathology, or any issues with your heart, kidney, or liver. If you are interested in getting dental implants, book your FREE consultation to find out if you are a suitable candidate. Our top implant dentists will assess your mouth and determine the best course of action to plan your dental implants.    
A dental implant is not a one-step process. Between waiting for your jaw bones to heal, scheduling visits to your dentist in Ealing, and creating your crowns, the entire process generally takes 3-6 months to complete.  

Dental implants represent one of the biggest advances in dentistry and have an overall success rate of around 97%. While every patient and dental implant case is different, many patients report minimal or no pain during the procedure.

One of the first questions that often comes up when discussing dental implants is the cost. The price of dental implants varies based on the complexity of the procedure, the number of implants needed, and the type of prosthetic tooth used. However, over time, dental implants can be the most cost-effective solution for missing teeth. At Stunning Smile Clinic in Ealing, we offer an affordable payment plan for dental implants. Our dentists will provide a quote that includes all cost factors, including any necessary procedures such as bone grafting.

With proper oral care and maintenance, you can expect your dental implants to last a lifetime. However, the service life of an implant mainly depends upon your own oral hygiene maintenance. The better your oral health and hygiene, the longer will your implants last.

The most critical requirement for the care of your dental implants is to look after your oral health. You should consider your implants as your natural teeth, and brush and floss them regularly, as you should do for your natural teeth. In addition, you should take special care of the gums surrounding the dental implants, as one of the major reasons for the failure of an implant is gum and periodontal infections.

After implant surgery, the gums and mouth need to heal before a dental crown, or prosthetic tooth is placed. You can still use a denture during the healing period, and we can always make provisions to have temporary teeth made. In some cases where dentures are worn, we ask patients to wear their dentures part-time, if possible, during the initial healing period (3-14 days).

At Stunning Smile Clinic, our implant dentist in West Ealing will typically perform an exam, radiograph, or CT scan to evaluate the amount of bone present before placing dental implants. In most cases, patients have enough bone to support the implants. However, the longer a person has been missing teeth, the more bone loss or atrophy may have occurred. In cases of insufficient bone, a bone graft may be necessary before the implants can be placed.

Depending on how severe it is and how well it has been controlled, gum disease can be a factor when placing dental implants since it can lead to infection and implant failure. When possible, it’s typically better to address the gum disease (periodontal disease) and establish a good oral hygiene routine first, then proceed with the placement of dental implants.

I’ve always had fantastic treatment from Dariush in whom I have total confidence. I am very happy with my latest treatment, a Cerec crown, a pain free experience. An implant he did for me many years ago has been extremely successful and problem free.

I attended the clinic needing an implant to replace a tooth that had been extracted 4 years earlier. There was bone loss on both teeth next to the the extracted tooth but dr Darius managed to place an implant in my lower jaw without a bone graft or impact on the lower nerves. The implant is perfect.After the implant he recommended fillings on other teeth where previous dentists had failed. All fillings have been successful and i have a full set of teeth again.Dr Darius carried out all the operations with great professionalism and care.

I can never thank Dr Dariush enough for his professionalism, kindness and care. He goes beyond his duties to make sure you are treated like one of the family. It’s not just a job, it’s his passion and he loves his clients to the extent he will always choose the most cost effective option for the patient rather than benefit his business. It’s very rare to find a professional with such amazing morals. I trust him with my eyes closed and would recommend everyone and anyone.
