Eat, smile, talk and chew again without the worry of missing teeth
Dental implants could be the treatment you need if you have missing teeth, multiple wobbly teeth, or loose and unstable dentures. This guide explains how dental implants can help you to smile, chew and speak with confidence once more.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are replacements for missing teeth. A titanium tooth root is used to fix a ceramic tooth or teeth or a denture securely in place. Because they are fixed rigidly in position, dental implants improve chewing efficiency, comfort and appearance.
Dental implant treatment is now recognised as one of the longest lasting and most reliable forms of tooth replacement. Having an implant involves a small procedure performed under local anaesthetic. The treatment varies depending on whether or not you have dentures and whether you have a single missing tooth, or several teeth missing.
Replacing a single tooth
To replace a single missing tooth, you will need one dental implant, an abutment and a ceramic crown.
Replacing a few teeth
If you have more than one missing tooth in a row, we may insert two or more titanium implants and ‘span’ the gap between them with a custom-made bridge.
Replacing all of your teeth
If all your teeth are missing, you may benefit from implants to retain a ‘full arch implant retained bridge’. This involves placing several implants and fixing a full set of new teeth onto them.
Secure your dentures with implants
If you have loose dentures dental implants can help enormously to increase your confidence to smile and eat without the worry of loose teeth.
