Transforming Smiles: Dental Implants at White Bridge Clinic

At The White Bridge Clinic, we believe that a confident smile can change lives. Dental implants have revolutionised the field of dentistry, offering a permanent solution for missing teeth and helping patients regain their oral health and self-esteem. In this blog post, we will explore the world of dental implants and highlight the exceptional services provided by The White Bridge Clinic, ensuring you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about your dental health.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials such as titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. These implants serve as sturdy anchors for replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges or dentures, offering a natural-looking and functional solution for missing teeth. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants provide a permanent and long-term solution, blending seamlessly with your existing teeth and preserving your facial structure.

The Dental Implant Process:

Consultation and Examination:

During your initial visit, our dentists will conduct a thorough examination of your oral health, including X-rays and scans to assess your jawbone density. They will discuss your goals, expectations, and address any concerns you may have. This consultation is a crucial step in determining if dental implants are the right option for you.

Treatment Planning:

Based on the examination results, our dentists will develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan may include additional procedures such as bone grafting or sinus lift if needed to ensure a solid foundation for the implants.

Implant Placement:

The next step involves the surgical placement of the dental implants into the jawbone. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring your comfort throughout the process. The implants are strategically positioned to provide optimal support for the replacement teeth.

Osseointegration and Healing:

After the implant placement, a process called osseointegration takes place. Over several months, the implants naturally fuse with the surrounding jawbone, creating a strong and stable foundation. During this healing period, temporary restorations may be provided to maintain your smile’s aesthetics and functionality.

Final Restoration:

Once the implants have integrated with the jawbone, custom-made crowns, bridges, or dentures will be attached to the implants, completing your smile transformation. Our skilled dental technicians work closely with our dentists to ensure the restorations match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth, resulting in a seamless

Learn more about Navident

Navident is an advanced navigation system used in dental implantology that enhances the accuracy and precision of dental implant placement. White Bridge Clinic is proud to utilize Navident technology to provide our patients with the highest level of care and optimal outcomes. The White Bridge Clinic is one of few dental clinics in the UK to have invested in this advanced technology. Amit is a key opinion leader and early adopter of the Navident in the placement of dental implants. He has used this technology for over 3 years and has allowed implant solutions for patients who would have historically needed invasive surgery. With this high end technology and training, often implants are placed without large cuts in the gum and no sutures (stitches), meaning much faster recovery for our patients and little post operative discomfort. That is why The White Bridge Clinic has so many excellent reviews from their implant patients.

What is Navident?

Navident is a state-of-the-art computer-guided navigation system designed specifically for dental implant procedures. It combines 3D imaging, digital planning, and real-time tracking to assist dentists in accurately placing dental implants. The system utilises a small, handheld device that acts as a surgical tool, providing real-time guidance and feedback during the implant placement process.

How does Navident work?

Digital Treatment Planning:

Before the actual implant surgery, dentists use Navident’s digital treatment planning software to precisely plan the placement of the dental implants. This software integrates patient-specific information, such as CT scans and digital impressions, allowing for virtual placement and visualisation of the implants within the patient’s jawbone.

Dynamic Navigation:

During the surgery, Navident’s dynamic navigation feature comes into play. A special tracking device is attached to the handheld surgical instrument, which communicates with the Navident software in real-time. As the dentist moves the instrument, the system continuously tracks its position and orientation relative to the patient’s jawbone.

Real-Time Guidance:

The Navident system provides live feedback to the dentist, displaying the position of the instrument and the planned implant location on a screen. This real-time guidance ensures precise implant placement according to the preoperative plan, taking into account the optimal position, angle, and depth for each implant.

Increased Accuracy and Safety:

By utilising Navident, dentists can achieve a higher level of accuracy and safety during the implant surgery. The system eliminates potential human errors and enhances the predictability of implant placement, minimising the risk of complications. The real-time guidance helps avoid critical anatomical structures and ensures implants are placed in the most favourable locations for long-term success.

Benefits of Navident at White Bridge Clinic:

Improved Precision: Navident allows for more accurate implant placement, leading to better aesthetics, function, and long-term success of the dental implants.

Enhanced Patient Experience: The advanced technology of Navident enables minimally invasive procedures, reducing discomfort, swelling, and the overall healing time for patients.

Predictable Outcomes: By leveraging Navident’s real-time tracking and guidance, our dentists can achieve highly predictable and consistent results, ensuring patient satisfaction.

Reduced Treatment Time: Navident’s efficiency and accuracy can help streamline the implant process, potentially reducing the overall treatment time for patients.

Conclusion:

At The White Bridge Clinic, we believe in providing our patients with the latest advancements in dental technology. With the integration of Navident, our dental implant procedures reach new levels of precision, accuracy, and patient satisfaction.
