Dental Implants

Missing a tooth or teeth? Dental Implants are the next best thing to having your natural tooth back again. A titanium screw base is inserted into the bone (don’t worry you won't feel a thing!) and your custom made tooth is fitted on top afterwards. Implant bridges can fix larger gaps too, even replacing all your teeth.

The Process

At the consult, the usual dental examination is carried out where we check if all the natural teeth are healthy. We wouldn't put a fancy piece of Swiss machinery in the mouth if we knew the neighbouring teeth were not supportive! The soft tissue health is also checked (if no teeth are present we still check the soft tissues).

A fancy 3D bone scan is required to survey the underlying bone with the latest implant software. This allows us to plan implant insertions easily and precisely.

At the 2nd consult, we will sit down with you and explain the treatment process and fee with you, with plenty of time for your questions.

What is an implant composed of?

A dental implant essentially made in 3 parts.

The Implant

The Abutment

The Crown

Firstly the implant itself is placed into the bone, under local anaesthetic. This is left buried under the gum for 8 weeks approximately. You may need a temporary crown or false tooth during this time.

8 weeks later.
After testing the implant is firmly embedded in the bone, impressions (moulds) are taken to make the other 2 parts, the abutment and the crown, in the lab. The crown is the only part of the implant restoration you will see.

Once you have finished treatment, you have to treat your implant with the utmost care, if not more than you other teeth. Regular dental visits are crucial, especially in the first 6 to 12 months after your implant, as it settles in.

We are strong believers in post-operative care and you will be given clear instructions on how to look after your implant, so it will look after you!
