We will determine your suitability for Teeth in a Day dental implants by assessing your oral health and jawbone density

As we age, lots of different factors can affect the health of our teeth and gums

Many people experience tooth loss, which can be incredibly distressing and inconvenient.

There are always long-term consequences of losing a tooth; over time it can affect your other teeth, as well as your jaw and your bite. This is why it is important to consider replacing a lost tooth, even if it is out of sight at the back of the mouth.

When a tooth root is lost, the surrounding bone is no longer needed and can shrink significantly over time. Gradually this can cause premature ageing in the face, as the cheeks hollow out and the lower jaw recedes, leaving what is known as a witch’s chin. There is also additional strain on the teeth either side of the gap, as they have to work harder during eating to bite or chew food, which could lead to damage or loss of the teeth in the future. Our team always want to give you the best advice and support when it comes to your dental health, but also emotional and financial well being – this means looking at your current situation and into the future.

What is the dental implant procedure?

When it comes to the implant treatment, we will always prioritise your comfort, so we will gently administer a local anaesthetic or even some sedation if you feel anxious or worried about the process.

A small titanium post is then precisely placed into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This will act as a secure and stable ‘root’ section once the implanted post has fused to your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration.

Once the implant has healed, your dentist will take detailed impressions of your teeth and gums. They will also match the colour of the surrounding teeth so your new implant tooth will look completely natural. The results are then sent to a dental laboratory so they can make your new tooth, which will then be securely attached to the healed titanium ‘root’.

Caring for dental implants

To help make sure your new implant stays as clean and healthy as possible, we would recommend you visit us for regular hygiene therapy appointments.

Our hygienists will help you understand the best way to look after and clean your new implant and the rest of your teeth, mouth and gums, so you can have the best oral health now and in the future.

Great service! Friendly & knowledgeable staff who really put you at ease. Annette the hygienist is the best I have seen.

Dental implants: Frequently asked questions

How much do dental implants cost?

Dental implants at Highfield Dental & Facial Clinic start from £2,200 for a single implant. We will discuss your treatment options during your free initial dental implant consultation and you will be made aware of all costs associated with your treatment before we begin.

Does dental implant treatment hurt?

Dental implant treatment is always carried out under local anaesthetic by our highly skilled and gentle dentist, so the treatment is always pain free. We are also able to offer sedation if you feel nervous about your treatment; your wellbeing is always our top priority. After your treatment, you may feel soreness for a few days, but this is easily managed with a soft diet and over-the-counter painkillers.

How long does dental implant surgery take?

This will depend on how many implants you require, but on average dental implant surgery takes 1-2 hours per single dental implant. We will be able to provide more precise information during your free initial implant consultation.

How long do dental implants last?

With the right care and maintenance, your new dental implants will last a lifetime. Your dental implants not only give you back a full and complete smile, they are a long-term investment in your dental health. This is why we always ensure our patients are fully aware of how to care for their dental implants to ensure they stay healthy and stable for many years to come. This is easily achieved with an excellent home care regime and regular dental check-ups and hygiene appointments – we will be here for you every step of the way.

Are dental implants safe?

Dental implant treatment is very safe. It is a well-established treatment provided by highly experienced dental practitioners at Highfield Dental & Facial Clinic. As you would expect, we only use the highest quality dental implants that offer excellent results every time. Your treatment will be well planned prior to your appointment, and our aftercare will help you to ensure your new implants last a lifetime.
