Dental implants

Are you missing teeth? Do you find it difficult to speak, chew food or smile with confidence? We have very quickly come from a time when the expectation was that virtually everyone would lose all or some of their teeth and the only option was to replace them with poorly fitting dentures. Fortunately, technology has progressed and you no longer need to suffer in silence with missing teeth and loose dentures.

Single dental implant

The all-ceramic e.max crown has many advantages over traditional crowns. Besides its high aesthetic qualities, the function and longevity of the crown is excellent as well.

E.max is a system of crown fabrication which allows a porcelain crown to be made without the metal under structure. Traditionally, porcelain crowns are made by bonding the porcelain to a metal support. The drawback is that unlike a natural tooth which exhibits a certain degree of translucency, the metal framework under the porcelain blocks out the light. To the keen observer, the difference in shine and translucency between a natural tooth and can be quite obvious. While full porcelain crowns have been done (and are still being done), most have proven to break prematurely. Furthermore, porcelain surfaces are known to wear out opposing natural teeth faster.

Multiple dental implants

If you have lost several teeth there are typically two solutions: separate dental crowns attached to dental implants or a dental bridge attached to 2 or more dental implants.

If you have one or more teeth missing, then you may not need as many implants as you think. Not every missing tooth needs to have an implant beneath it. We can fit a bridge to a single implant on which two or more crowns are used to replace adjoining teeth.

Implant retained dentures

Some people struggle wearing dentures, they find the denture can become loose and move about, causing difficulty in eating and speaking. If this sounds familiar, dental implants can be placed in order to secure your denture into position, the number of implants needed will depend on your individual circumstances.

If you have a few or all of your teeth missing, one solution is to have a denture. We offer metal bases, acrylic and flexible dentures. Here is how they work:

  • A denture is made from hard-wearing material that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give your mouth a natural appearance.
  • After impressions are taken, a denture is designed in a dental laboratory.
  • Dentures are made to fit snugly on your gums and you will be able to remove them for cleaning.

When you wear a denture for the first time it may take some getting used to when speaking or eating and chewing. It is important that you take extra care when conducting your hygiene regime so that you can avoid bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. The hygienist will be able to show you how to best take care of your denture and gums and will tell you about specialised brushes you can use to do this.

Ill-fitting dentures can be stabilised using dental implants. As few as 2 implants can be used to secure a lower full denture. We offer a free chat with our smile advisor so that you can discuss the challenges that you have with your existing dentures at our practice and we can offer solutions to finally put an end to your denture troubles.

Dental Implant FAQ's
How long does dental implant treatment take?

For routine cases, from the time of implant insertion to the time of placing the first tooth, treatment times can vary between 6 weeks and 6 months. Good solid bone will reduce treatment time, whilst more time and care must be taken with poor bone, which can therefore extend treatment times.

How long will a dental implant last?

If looked after correctly, dental implants will last for many decades. Our dental implant system has proved to last a lifetime, achieving fantastic results for all of our patients.

How much do dental implants cost?

There isn’t a standard answer to how much implants will cost because the work required is tailored to your needs. A comprehensive consultation will be required to determine the cost of your dental implant treatment. Following your consultation, a bespoke treatment plan will be provided detailing all treatment costs.

How do I look after my dental implants?

For most dental implant-supported teeth you will be able to clean around each supporting dental implant by brushing and flossing in just the same way that you would around your own teeth. In some areas we recommend flossing, inter dental toothbrushes and other cleaning aids to maintain excellent oral hygiene. For the first few months after the dental implants are placed, your dentist may ask to see you more frequently. However, once your dentist is satisfied your treatment is performing as planned, ongoing care will be similar to patients with natural teeth.

Are dental implants for me?

The most important visit is the initial consultation where our dentist will go through a series of questions regarding your previous dental and medical histories. This will help to determine if dental implants are the best option for you.

If you are in good general health, dental implants are likely to be a suitable option for the replacement of your missing teeth. However, habits such as heavy drinking and smoking can compromise the initial healing time and have a detrimental effect on the long-term health of gum and bone surrounding each implant.
