Dental implants are among the most exciting innovations in modern dentistry and they can literally change your life. It may sound dramatic to make this statement, but implants really can have a massive difference on the way you look and feel, as well as your ability to carry out essential functions, such as chewing and grinding food.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a modern solution for tooth loss. The idea is that the implant, which is made from titanium and resembles a small screw, replaces the root of the missing tooth. Once the implant has been placed inside a socket in the jaw bone, it will then start to integrate into the bone tissue, ensuring optimum support for the new tooth. Once the integration process is complete, the restoration is attached and this serves to replace the visible part of the tooth.
Implants are a long-term solution for tooth loss and they are also incredibly versatile, which makes them an excellent choice for patients of all ages with diverse dental needs. Implants are compatible with bridges, dentures and crowns, so they can be used in the place of one single tooth or multiple missing teeth.
How long does treatment take?
Implant treatment usually takes between 3 and 9 months. However, we do offer rapid treatment solutions, including All-on-4. When you have your consultation, your dentist can discuss different options with you.
What are the alternatives to implant treatment?
Other options for tooth replacement treatment include dentures and dental bridges. Bridges tend to last up to 15 years, while dentures need adjusting on a regular basis to fit the changing contours of the mouth. Dental implants are the closest match to natural teeth and they last a lot longer. However, they are more expensive.
If you have a number of missing teeth and you dream of a perfect, strong smile, All-on-4 is all you need! This incredibly innovative dental implant treatment guarantees amazing results in just one day, so you really can enjoy a complete smile transformation overnight.

About dental implants

Implants are made from titanium, a biocompatible material that enables the implant to integrate into the bone tissue in the same way as a natural root. Implants are placed inside small sockets in the jaw bone, and the process of osseointegration begins. Once the implant has settled completely, it can be attached to a new restoration and this replaces the tooth crown. Implants offer the same level of stability as a natural tooth root and they are extremely versatile, providing a solution for patients of all ages with diverse dental needs.

Dental implants have revolutionised tooth replacement treatment over the last few years and we are delighted to offer both traditional and mini dental implants.
Dental implants are small prostheses, which are fixed into openings in the jaw bone to take on the role of the absent tooth root. Implants are made from titanium, which is a biocompatible material; this means that the implant is able to integrate into the bone tissue. Implants are very versatile tooth replacements because they fit with different types of restoration and this makes them an accessible treatment for patients with any number of missing teeth. Once the implant has integrated, the new restoration can be attached and the new tooth will work in exactly the same way as a natural tooth.
About mini implants
As the name suggests, mini implants are smaller versions of traditional dental implants. Mini implants are versatile like normal implants and they are also suitable for patients who lack bone mass and density in the jaw bone. These implants may be suitable for patients who have been advised against traditional implants or told that they may need bone grafting because they are more tolerable.
One common use of mini dental implants is to anchor a denture. Dentures are effective tooth replacements in their own right, but they do occasionally cause problems and implant-retained dentures are considered an excellent option for patients who may have experienced issues with the fit and function of traditional dentures in the past.
With implant-retained dentures, the dentures are secured by mini implants (or traditional implants), rather than the suction of the gums and this allows for greater bite power, enhanced comfort and a reduced risk of slipping, irritation and sore spots.
