What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer a durable, secure, and natural-looking solution for a missing tooth or teeth. They are highly advanced in dental restoration and a truly modern way to fill in the gaps in your smile. Implants create a fixed new tooth root, using strong titanium posts which are placed into your jawbone to support a crown or bridge.

Titanium is used for dental implants as it is very well-tolerated by the body. Over time, the titanium root fuses to the surrounding bone in the jaw, becoming a solid and strong foundation.

Why choose Dental Implants?

implants to provide stable and supported replacements for life. Dental implants allow you to regain the look, feel and function of natural teeth, without the worry that your restoration will slip or fail.

A missing tooth can significantly affect the way you eat, speak, and feel. A gap can cause your facial shape to lose structure, as your gum can shrink, and the remaining teeth move over time. Dental implants not only restore your smile, but they can also greatly improve your quality of life and self-confidence. You no longer need to worry about avoiding certain foods and can feel proud showing off your smile again.

What does the process for Dental Implant treatment involve?

Dental implant treatment can be quite lengthy, involving several in-surgery appointments

Step 1: Initial Consultation
During a full examination and assessment, we ensure you are a suitable implant candidate. Your treatment plan is devised and discussed in detail, including an estimated cost and timeframe.

Step 2: Planning
Using state-of-the-art digital scans and images, we precisely and accurately plan the best positions for your dental implants. Any preparatory treatment needed, such as bone grafts or extractions, is carried out.

Step 3: Fitting
The titanium implant is placed into your jawbone by our skilled implantologist, using local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort. The implant will take 3-6 months to heal and fuse to the bone, so a temporary tooth is fitted to protect your gum during the healing process.

Step 4: Smile!
Once your implant has fully healed and integrated, we fit your final crown or bridge and complete your brand-new smile. We will give you some advice on how to look after your dental implant and leave you to start showing off your smile!

What types of Dental Implants are available?

Single implants

A missing tooth can be effectively replaced using a crown fitted to a single dental implant. The replacement tooth is strong, secure, and durable, able to withstand pressures from chewing and look just like your existing teeth. Alternative options for a single missing tooth are available, including a single tooth denture or bridge, but these are not as effective as an implant. A single implant can be fitted with no damage to the remaining healthy teeth, prevents unwanted movement and strengthens the jaw.

Multiple implants

If you have several missing teeth, there are various implant options to consider filling the gaps. Separate single implants can be placed, but you do not necessarily need an implant fitted for each missing tooth. Strategically placed implants can be used to support a bridge to replace several adjacent teeth. This method is particularly effective in cases where the jawbone may not be sufficient for implant treatment in some places.

Full arch implants

Traditionally, dentures have been the go-to option for replacing a full upper or lower arch of missing teeth. However, despite the advances in denture treatment, they can be uncomfortable to wear and do not stop the jawbone from degrading over time. Dental implants are seen as the superior alternative and offer two main full arch options:

Frequently asked questions

Most people are a suitable candidate for dental implants, if they are generally healthy and have good oral health. However, they are not an ideal option for everyone. Dental implants are not usually offered to younger patients whose jaws are still growing. Smokers and patients with certain medical conditions, including diabetes, may struggle to heal properly following surgery and increase the risk of implant failure. It is also important that you have enough bone density in your jaw to hold the implants in place, but this can be improved with a bone graft. We will thoroughly discuss your overall suitability for implant treatment at your initial consultation.

We use local anaesthetic during dental implant surgery to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure. You won’t be able to feel a thing. After treatment, it is normal to experience some discomfort, and this can be managed with pain relief advised by your dentist. Implant treatment is often less painful than having a tooth extraction, and most patients can return to their usual routines the next day.

The whole process, from missing teeth to secure fixed replacements, can take several months. The implant surgery is a relatively quick procedure, but the implants themselves need around 3-6 months to heal and fuse before fixed permanent teeth can be placed. The treatment process will be longer if you need a bone graft or other procedure first, but your new smile will be more than worth it in the end.

Dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime if they are properly looked after. This includes maintaining an excellent brushing and flossing routine, looking after your general health and attending regular check-up appointments with your dentist. The crown or bridge that the implant supports may need to be replaced over time due to normal wear and tear.

No, dental implants look and feel exactly like natural teeth. We can match the shape and colour of your existing teeth when creating your final fixed crown or bridge, so it blends seamlessly into your smile.

If you have one or more missing teeth, you may also consider restoring your full smile with a bridge or denture. These alternatives are less expensive than an implant, but don’t have the same superior stability, aesthetics, and versatility. They are also not likely to last as long. We are happy to discuss all the options for replacing your missing teeth and find the best one for you.

You may find it easier! As your implants are fused to your jawbone and the replacement teeth securely supported, you shouldn’t have any trouble speaking and may find your speech becomes clearer once the gap in your teeth has been filled.

You should treat your dental implants just like natural teeth and include them in your normal oral hygiene routine. As they are made from artificial materials, your implants are invulnerable to decay or cavities, but you will still need to brush and floss to keep the gum surrounding the implant healthy and problem-free.
