Have you lost all or some of your natural teeth? Bridges, dentures and flexible dentures are not the only solutions, thanks to advances in modern dentistry.

Dental implants are small metal screws that are placed in the jaw so that crowns, bridges and dentures can be fixed onto them.

Implant dentistry offers a clinically proven and safe solution to getting back a great smile and being able to bite and chew with confidence. When you lose your natural teeth, your jaw bone and surrounding tissues start to resorb or disappear over time. When implants are placed in the jaw, it stimulates the remaining bone to grow and mesh around the metal, along with tiny blood vessels.

More importantly, implants help restore function so you can eat, chew and bite without your dentures falling out or having to stick to a soft food diet for the rest of your life.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are tooth root shaped titanium devices, which are placed into the bone once occupied by a tooth.

Once positioned, under sterile conditions at the practice, bone fuses to the implant surface in a process known as osseointegration. The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic and although some soreness afterwards can be expected this is usually minimal.

Once integrated a healthy implant can virtually be considered as permanent. At this stage, which can be anything from six weeks to four months after the implant is placed, it is uncovered and a special post called an abutment is attached.

A porcelain crown or bridge can then be made for the post and subsequently cemented into position. In some situations a post and provisional crown can be attached to the implant at the time of the surgery.

What are the benefits of Implants?

The main advantages of Dental Implants are that if kept healthy they are permanent and the adjacent teeth are not touched in any way.

Dental Implant treatment is extremely predictable with success rates in excess of 95% and is now seen as the ideal solution and first choice for replacing missing teeth.

Single-tooth implants can be used in people who are missing one or more teeth.

An implant is surgically placed in an opening that your dentist makes in the jawbone. After the implant attaches to your bone, it acts as a new “root” for the crown that will replace your missing tooth. A crown, which is made to look like a natural tooth, is attached to the implant and fills the space left in the mouth by the missing tooth.

Implants function in the same way as natural teeth. This means you can eat any type of food you like – with confidence and without pain – including foods that are hard, like apples, or difficult to chew, like crusty bread or steak. Implants also improve your ‘bite’ (i.e. the action of the jaws opening and closing), meaning your new teeth can bite and chew food just like normal teeth.

Implants are permanently fixed in place, so you don’t have to remove them for cleaning, take them out at night or worry about them moving, becoming loose or falling out. So, with one or two additional cleaning methods, which you will be shown you can clean your new implant-supported teeth as easily as natural teeth.

Computer Guided Planning and Implants Surgery

We here at Brigstock Dental are able to use digital planning to place dental implants in the most accurate way possible. This not only improves patient safety, but also a more precise implant placement.

The process starts when a CT scan is taken of the patient’s jawbone. This CT scan allows for the generation of a 3-D model of the jawbone, which can then be used in virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are more accurate implant placement, and less chair time for the patient in the surgery as well as reduced discomfort after surgery.

We also have a range of specialists under one roof, which allows the team to tackle complex dental problems collaboratively to improve patient care.
