What are dental implants?

For patients looking for a secure, strong and completely natural looking way to replace missing teeth, dental implants are the perfect solution. We use tiny titanium posts inserted into your jawbone to create a fixed new tooth root, a solid support for a replacement tooth placed on top. Titanium is used as it is very well tolerated by the body, and fuses to the surrounding bone to create a durable foundation.

Not only do dental implants complete your smile and enhance your confidence, they can also improve how you eat and speak, support and have a positive change on your facial shape and structure, reduce the loss of bone density in your jaw and ensure your existing teeth stay in place.

What does dental implant treatment involve?

At your initial consultation appointment, we examine your teeth and gums and make sure you are suitable for implants. We assess how your teeth fit together, your oral health and the volume of your jaw bone. If you don’t have sufficient bone density in your jaw to support implants, we may suggest a grafting procedure to ensure effective treatment.

We take digital scans and images of your mouth, which are used to formulate your treatment plan and accurately identify the best position for your implant. We make sure we discuss this with you, giving you the chance to ask any questions.

The titanium implant is inserted into your jaw in a minor surgical procedure. We use local anaesthetic to minimise your discomfort, and you shouldn’t feel any pain. The implant will take 3-6 months to heal and fuse with your jaw bone, so we fit a temporary tooth to protect your gum during this time.

When your implant has fully settled and successfully healed, we see you for a fitting appointment in our practice. We place your beautifully natural looking replacement tooth to reveal your new smile, and leave you to start showing it off!

Frequently asked questions

  • The best way to look after your dental implants is to make sure you brush regularly, and clean in between the teeth with floss or interdental brushes. It is also important to visit your dentist for routine check up appointments so we can keep an eye on your implants as well as your natural teeth.

  • If they are looked after properly, dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime. If you keep up with an excellent brushing and flossing routine, and attend regular check ups with your dentist, your implants should remain problem free. The crown or bridge that the implant supports may need to be replaced over time due to natural wear and tear.

  • Yes, dental implants are a very effective and successful solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. For multiple teeth, we can place separate single implants, one for each replacement tooth, or use strategically placed implants to support a bridge or denture. The implant-supported denture option can be used to restore a full arch of missing teeth.

  • Dental implants completely mimic natural teeth, so other people will not be able to tell they are there. They are a completely solid foundation, meaning that the tooth fixed on top will not move or slip as you speak or eat. We can match the shape and shade of your existing teeth when creating your replacement tooth so it blends seamlessly into your smile.

  • You will likely find it is much easier to talk and eat when you have dental implants fitted. As they are fused to your jawbone, and the replacement teeth secure and supported, you should be able to talk and eat without the worry that you will feel any slipping or moving.

  • For one or more missing teeth, you could also consider having a bridge or denture. These are more affordable options, and do effectively restore the gap in your smile, but don’t have the same stability, aesthetics and versatility as implants. Please talk to us about your options for replacing missing teeth.
