Maintenance & Repair

Preserve your confident smile with expert implant maintenance and repair

What is implant maintenance and repair?

Implant maintenance and repair involve professional services designed to ensure the longevity and optimal functioning of dental implants. Maintenance typically includes regular check-ups, cleanings, and assessments to monitor the condition of the implants, surrounding tissues, and any attached prosthetic elements.

Repair services address issues such as loose screws, damaged prosthetics, or any other complications that may arise over time. These procedures aim to maintain the stability and functionality of the dental implants, promoting the longevity of the overall restoration and preserving the patient's oral health and confident smile. Regular maintenance and timely repairs are crucial for sustaining the success of dental implant treatments.


Prolonged Longevity

Dental implant maintenance and repair contribute to the prolonged longevity of the implant system. Regular check-ups and timely repairs address potential issues, preventing further complications and ensuring the implants remain stable and functional for an extended period.

Oral Health

Implant maintenance and repair ensure prolonged oral health and aesthetics by monitoring and addressing potential complications promptly, preserving the natural appearance of the smile and preventing further damage to the implant structure

Following the Placement of an Implant

It is important to keep the surrounding area clean. Use a 45 degree angle as the standard brushing technique. Use plastic coated interdental brushes for safe effective plaque removal. Tightly floss approximal surfaces and implants. Ensure all surfaces are clean. Adapt floss/tape for teeth and gums.

Maintenance, Hygiene and Monitoring

Generally, once dental implants have fused to the bone, patients experience very few problems. However, if you have any pain, swelling of the gums, problems or concerns, you must contact us immediately.

We have already discussed at various stages of the implant treatment on how important it is always to maintain the health of your mouth. You should be aware that the maintenance of your newly placed implants together with the optimal health of your mouth is crucial to the long-term success of your implant treatment. Remember to contact the practice PROMPTLY if any teeth or implant supported structures become loose or you notice pain, swelling, bad taste or alteration in the way the teeth bite together.


You will need to maintain a high standard of oral hygiene around the implant Tooth. Cleaning has the primary objective of preventing bacteria from the plaque growing down between the gum and implant post. This area must be physically cleaned at least twice daily around every implant.

Electric sonic toothbrushes and water irrigation devises are effective recommended and effective, however in conjunction with the right size of angulated, or straight small bottle brushes (Te Pe) which are essential tools of daily oral hygiene around an implant. They need to be used in conjunction with gentle flossing, anti-plaque toothpaste, gel or mouthwash. Super floss type materials are excellent for cleaning and polishing the necks of implants.

Most Frequently Asked Questions About Implant

Why should replace tooth or teeth that are missing?
We use and show our teeth when we eat, speak, and smile. 
These functions are affected by missing teeth, which goes beyond looks.

The overeruption of the opposing tooth and the tilting of the teeth next to gap cause by missig  tooth  makes it more complicated to eventually  replace it. 
Dental implants offer number of advantages whether they are used to replace single missing tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth. The advantages of dental implants include:

Dental implants are small fixtures placed under the gum to work as the roots of a missing tooth. A crown or artificial tooth is then fitted to match the rest of your teeth and improve your smile and bite. An implant can replace one tooth or multiple teeth for a healthy smile that looks and feels natural. Implants are a well-established, tried-and-tested treatment. Over 95 per cent of modern implants should last for over 10 years under the right care.

There are few options to replace missing teeth:




In some cases, small gaps could be closed using braces instead of a tooth replacement.



The implants are made of a variety of materials but most commonly from  titanium. Titanium is biocompatible with the jawbone and can be placed using a simple local anaesthetic. You will not feel any pain at the time, but you may feel some discomfort during the day or days after surgery. The implants need to integrate with the bone after they have been inserted. This takes usually  2-6 months, however sometimes the Implants are stable enough & artificial teeth can be attached immediately after placement (Immediate Implant).

In most cases a healing cap will be placed to protect the implant during healing phase & also contour the gum.

Once the implant is integrated, an abutment is fitted to hold the crown. The abutment and the base of the crown may be made of metal, however, to achieve a more natural look in particularly with the front teeth we recommend abutment & crowns made of solid porcelain (Implant Crown Options).

Like any other tooth restoration implants need the right care and cleaning to last for many years. We recommend twice yearly check-ups and hygienist sessions in addition to your daily routine care.


If you wear full dentures, then you can keep wearing these throughout the healing period once it has been modified after surgery.

Single Crowns and Bridges retained by implants will be fixed and only be placed and removed by the dentist. However, if you have a complete denture which is fixed to the implants (balls, locators or bars) then you’ll be able to take them out for cleaning.

All on 4 ( or all on 6 depends on clinical need) is a modern tooth replacement concept that we are specialised in. A fixed cosmetic dental bridge will be placed on 4-6 implants. The prosthesis is fixed and look like natural teeth.

In contrast to dentures which may move when chewing or become loose, fixed bridge is attached to implants, wont move and provides you with the confidence you deserve by eating and speaking.

All on 4 implants


The implants may be even angled at 30 to 450 to avoid nerves or sinuses. The all-on-4 implants have earned a nickname” teeth for a day” as the entire surgery process can be carried out within a day. Toothless individuals or those with hopeless teeth could benefit from fixed bridge retained on implants and enjoy a new gleaming smile.

In certain conditions  an implant can be placed in the hole left by the root directly after extraction. This is called an Immediate Implant. Dr. Amin Amenien is provider of  the German-based NDI (Natural Dental Implants) AG, that has introduced the revolutionary method of immediate implants called REPLICATE (Immediate Tooth Replacement System 2.0). Usually implants need to be integrated with the bone after they have been placed. This takes at least 3-6 months and a second small surgery is necessary to fit the abutment and final crown.
What is an implant
Replicate Immediate Tooth Replacement – how it works? The innovative Replicate tooth replacement system works quite quick in comparison to conventional dental implants. In a typical Replicate implant process for replacing the missing tooth the procedure steps are:
  • Imaging: At your initial appointment with our dentist, a digital three-dimensional X-ray is taken. From this individual impression, the replica of your teeth will be constructed.
  • Extraction and replacement: During your second appointment, the original tooth that is extracted or is already missing is replaced with the Replicate tooth. To ensure a secure healing process, a protective, temporary crown is bonded with the adjacent tooth.
  • Recovery: The new Replicate tooth implant requires around three to six months of healing while becoming embedded in the jawbones. You will receive in-depth instructions about the overall oral hygiene as well as diet and care during this time.
  • Finalized permanent crown: The dental protective crown is carefully removed and replaced with the final permanent replicate crown. This dental crown for your tooth has been coloured to match your surrounding teeth for a natural look.
How much will the Replicate Tooth Replacement cost you? The overall price of the Replicate system for missing teeth or damaged teeth will be based on the type of treatment you will receive. In most cases, the overall cost of the Replicate system for tooth replacement is comparable to the overall cost of the conventional dental implant procedure. Our dental implant experts can advise you better after your dental assessment.

Unless there are systemic contraindications and subject to bone availability, there is the chance to replace teeth with implants.

Implants can be placed only if the state of the bone (Quality & Quantity) in the jaw is reasonable. Your dentist will assess your mouth and if he finds out there is not enough bone, or if it is not healthy enough, the implant placement will be subject to additional process such as  Guided Tissue Regeneration, Bone Grafting , Sinus Lift, Connective Tissue Graft, Ridge Expansion etc.

Most of these procedures could be prevented by Ridge preservation &utilizing right technique at the time of extraction, which saves the bone from damage, shrinkage & changes after an Extraction.

Bone Changes After Extraction.

As you see in the video the bone shrinks after an extraction. This shrinkage can be prevented or minimized in many cases by Ridge preservation and the  right technique  at the time of extraction as stated earlier, which saves the bone from shrinkage and makes placing an implant easier without grafting techniques.

Ridge Preservation

Once a tooth is lost, the bone and gum will begin to recede. If you later decide to have an Implant fitted it may mean that the Implant would sit too high or the Crown would sit too low without a bone graft. This can be prevented in many cases by Ridge preservation & right techniques at the time of extraction which minimize the bone shrinkage & changes after an Extraction.

Solutions available when all teeth are missing or loose and hopeless:

-A fixed bridge can be attached to 4/6  Implants placed in the jaw. (all on 4/all on 6)

-A removable denture made & fixed by 2-4 Implants to your jaw.

-A conventional denture without any fixation element to the jaw.


The bone surrounding the tooth recedes in the weeks and months after removal.




The problems described above can be often avoided or limited given the right regenerative measures. Your dentist will advise you on treatment individually adapted for you.
