Implant Dentist Birmingham
An Implant Dentist is a highly trained dental professional who should have had extensive additional
training allowing the dentist to place dental implants. Dental Implants are certainly the best way to
replace most missing teeth; they look, feel and function similar to normal teeth. Teeth implants, placed
by a trained implant dentist, allow you to eat with confidence again and also even prevent bone shrinkage
in your jaw, delaying one of the signs of ageing.
In order for a dentist to place dental implants, implant dentists in the UK need to have completed a
postgraduate extended learning program before they can provide dental implant treatment to patients.
Implant dentistry is not sufficiently covered within a standard UK dentistry course so implant dentists
have to undergo this addition postgraduate training.
A dental implant dentist is trained in Dental Implantology, a set of surgical techniques that aims
at the functional rehabilitation of a patient with missing teeth with the use of dental implants.
Implant dentists use dental implants as an artificial replacement for the root portion of a patients
natural teeth. The implants are anchored into a prepared socket. The dental implant supports either
a crown, bridge or secures a denture firmly in place. Most dental implants used by implant dentists
are made from titanium, a material that is well tolerated by bone and integrates easily with bone
tissue. Dental implants can have different shapes and sizes, allowing dental implant dentists to insert them
in different positions of the mouth with different techniques.
A dental implant dentist (implantologist) creates a site in the patients bone (corresponding to the new
tooth to be placed or replaced) by using a set of calibrated burs, then inserts the titanium implant used to
restore the new tooth. Over time the patients bone grows onto the implant, fixing it in place permanently
(osseointegration). This forms the stable foundation where the patients new implant can be restored with a
