Dental Implants in Stockport

Dental Implants are a great solution to replacing missing teeth that look, feel and function like real teeth.

The first thing that people usually notice about others is their beautiful smile, as it lights up their face, enhances their beauty and shows the world their happiness from within. A smile is so much more than the movement of muscles - it expresses the best version of ourselves - one filled with humour, laughter and enjoyment. To us, there’s nothing better than a big toothy grin, but for others, this is a dreaded experience, especially if they have a tooth or two missing. Don’t let your insecurities stop you from smiling. With dental implants from Charisma Clinic, you can have a full, natural-looking smile that will boost your confidence, opening many doors in the process.

Patient Suitability

We always determine patient suitability during your thorough consultation, where we delve into your medical history, your lifestyle and take x-rays or a CT scan of your mouth, and in particular, the treatment area.

You may be unsuitable for dental implants if you:

  • Are a heavy smoker.
  • Have had radiotherapy in your jaw area.
  • Have diabetes.
  • Have gum disease.

Dental implants are also unsuitable for children, and young people under the age of 18 because the underlying bones are still developing.

Should you be unsuitable for dental implants, we will recommend alternative treatments that may prove a better solution, or provide you with healthcare advice that will make you a better candidate for the procedure.

The Consultation

Because this is a complex treatment, it requires an initial examination to assess whether your underlying bone structure is suitable for an implant. This includes x-rays, or a CT scan to determine the position of the implant. We’ll then discuss your procedure with you, presenting you with a treatment plan that’s unique to you and your needs. By the end of your consultation, you’ll be able to make a more informed decision about whether implants are right for you, and feel confident that we’ll provide you with a treatment that is safe, efficient and is undertaken with only your best interests at heart.

The Treatment

The treatment begins by fastening a small screw into your jawbone which is used as a replacement root. This is usually carried out under local anaesthetic but intravenous sedation is another available option.

The new implant is then fused with the surrounding bone, and a temporary crown is attached while the implant secures itself to your bone.

After three months, we will check its position, fitting and placement. Once secure, a crown, veneer or denture will be attached to the screw, securing it in place and leaving you with a natural-looking tooth and a smile on your face.

In some cases, there are two other stages that may be involved in your dental implant treatment:

Tooth extraction: If you have a problem with one of your surrounding teeth, we may remove it and replace it with an implant.

Bone grafting: If you don’t have enough bone in your jaw to support your dental implant, we may add artificial bone to aid its structure.

Whatever your case, we ensure that every client receives a treatment that garners real results, filling in the gaps, creating a healthier mouth and restoring your confidence.

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Implants look, feel and function like real teeth, and don’t need to be removed like dentures.

They are strong, durable and can be colour-matched to the natural shade of the rest of your teeth, so no-one will be none the wiser.

Boosts your confidence and improves your mental wellbeing, as you won’t be worrying about missing teeth or that lose tooth falling out.

Restores the strength of your jaw structure and bone tissue, and it helps to lessen the advent of gum disease too.

Improves your speech. Unlike with ill-fitting dentures - where teeth can slip within your mouth and cause you to mumble or slur your words - dental implants allow you to speak freely, without worry that your teeth may slip.

Ease of eating: Because they function like your own teeth, they allow you to eat your favourite foods with confidence and without discomfort.

Aftercare Advice

You may experience swelling or bruising around the implant, but that usually subsides after 2-3 days. To help reduce swelling, ice packs should be placed on the cheek for 10 minutes at a time, and at night, sleeping upright so as not to put pressure on the implant will also help.

Our guidance:

Take care to only have cold drinks and not eat until the anaesthetic has worn off.

Do not engage in strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for the first 48 hours.

To reduce the risk of infection, we will prescribe antibiotics and you must follow our advice on when and how often to take them. This impacts on gum health and implant success.

Avoid brushing the surgical site for the first few days following surgery, then begin to carefully clean it with a toothbrush, once tenderness permits.

Hot salt mouthwashes aid healing in the first week, but ensure that it’s not so hot that it scalds your mouth.

Don’t smoke until the wound has healed as this prolongs the healing process, and can also infect the wound too.

At Charisma Clinic, we offer a 5 year warranty and 12 months FREE aftercare, which includes x-rays and scale and polish, saving you up to £200.
