Our implant care

We have invested in our own on-site state-of-the-art CT scanner to ensure the best possible implant treatment for you. This allows us to plan and decide the treatment best suited to your needs and budget.

Mark, who has trained with the world-leading ankylos system, will carry out the procedure. Our expertise in assessing your suitability for implants, carrying out the procedure, and providing aftercare means we offer a fully comprehensive dental implant service.

In this video, we hear from a Creative Smiles patient who was living with a host of painful and debilitating oral health issues, including terrible abscesses.

We helped him overcome his fear of dentistry to have life-changing dental implants, in which we replaced a mouthful of failings with permanent, lifelike implants.

The transformation is stunning, and it proves that a little empathy goes a long way. We work hard to build trust and rapport, and we are proud of the strong relationships we build with our patients. We find this essential in helping our more nervous visitors overcome their anxieties and finally get the treatment they need.

Happy Patient

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental implants are titanium posts used to replace the roots of missing teeth. We implant the post into your jaw and use it to hold a lifelike dental crown in position. Implants are made from titanium because this lightweight metal is biocompatible and durable. Once in position, your jaw and the titanium will fuse together to give your new tooth a solid foundation.

Along with the aesthetic benefits of dental implants, completing your smile can improve self-confidence and restore your ability to chew food. There are also several health benefits. Dental implants stop neighbouring teeth from moving out of position and prevent jaw bone deterioration, which can leave you looking prematurely aged. Dental implants also make it easier to maintain good standards of oral hygiene meaning the risk of decay or infection is decreased.

There is no right or wrong age for dental implant success, although younger patients should wait until they reach the age of 18 before receiving this treatment as the jaw is still developing. The bone’s ability to heal is not affected by age, so it’s never too late to get dental implants.

Although dental implant surgery is complicated, we’ll provide an anaesthetic so each step of the procedure is painless.

Because dental implants need to fuse with the jaw bone through a process called osseointegration, it will take several months to restore missing teeth fully. After placing your implant, we can provide a temporary crown which you can wear until the bone and implant are ready for the final restoration.

If you have missing or severely damaged teeth requiring extraction, dental implants can restore their appearance and function. There are a few factors that could mean you are not a suitable candidate for dental implants. We’ll need to find out about your general health and lifestyle and perform a thorough assessment of your jaws before we can proceed with the procedure. The healing process can take time, and you need to be in good health. Certain medical conditions can affect how your body heals after surgery. You must have sufficient bone mass in your jaw to support the implant. If it’s been a while since you lost your teeth or you’ve experienced advanced gum disease, your jaw may have deteriorated. In these cases, you may need a bone graft before you can have dental implants.

Not everybody needs a bone graft before they receive dental implants. Bone grafts restore your jaw following resorption. A piece of bone tissue is applied to the compromised area of the jaw. Left to heal, this will gradually bind with and strengthen the jaw. We’ll assess the health of your jaw during your initial assessment and advise whether you might need a bone graft first.

Often when discussing dental implants, we are referring to replacements for single teeth. These are one titanium post capped with a dental crown. Although it’s not practical to replace multiple teeth in this way, we can use an alternative implant procedure to restore up to an entire arch of teeth. All-on-4 implants use four or six implants spread across the entire jaw to support a row of lifelike teeth.

Dental implants are perfectly safe. They have been used by dentists all over the world since the 1960s and enjoy a very high success rate. We only use high-quality implants from manufacturers with a proven track record for excellence. Our dentists are highly trained and have performed numerous implant procedures. Not only this but our team is involved in continuous professional development to ensure they maintain the highest professional standards and remain at the forefront of the latest dental innovations.

If dental implants are not for you, we can replace one or more teeth using dental bridges. These natural-looking replacements use your adjacent teeth for support. Alternatively, you could have full or partial dentures.

With the proper dental care, a titanium implant should last a lifetime. The lifelike prosthetic teeth we attach to dental implants will need to be replaced as they can wear down. These typically last for around 10-15 years.

The best way to care for your dental implants is to brush your teeth twice a day using a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Regular checkups and appointments with our hygienist will also help you maintain a healthy smile and give us a chance to spot problems early.

If your bone rejects the implant, it can fail. This is very rare, and the majority of procedures succeed. Lifestyle factors like smoking and the general health of your teeth, gums, and jaws can all play a part in the long term success of your implant. Regular checkups after having dental implants will help ensure you keep problems like infection and gum disease at bay.
