Dental Implants

Yarm, Stockton-on-Tees, North Yorkshire.

If you have missing a tooth, you may find that there are other things you miss too.

You may miss being able to smile with confidence or being able to eat the food you desire. Not only that, a missing tooth can also make you more prone to tooth decay, gum disease and infection. Some people even experience muscle strain and discomfort as the remaining teeth shift. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

What are the benefits of an implant over alternative options?

Implants are long lasting. If cared for properly, they can last as long as your natural teeth.
Implants are a fixed solution. So, you don’t have to remove them to eat or sleep.
They prevent bone loss in the jawbone and help maintain face shape around the mouth.
As they act as a standalone tooth root, they cause no damage to neighbouring teeth.

Over a 3–6 month period, the jaw bone fuses to the implant in a process called osseo-integration. Once this has happened, we’ll start preparing the crown (replacement tooth). It will be made based on your other teeth so that a natural look can be achieved. Once your jaw is ready, we’ll be able to place the crown, and you can enjoy the benefits of your new smile.

Dental implants are placed under a local anaesthetic so you will not feel anything during the procedure. Like any treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort afterwards, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief and will subside within a week to two.

If you have missing teeth located in the same area, it is possible to have multiple teeth restored simultaneously using dental implants and bridges.

Say goodbye to denture adhesives and embarrassing moments. With a secure fit, implant retained dentures might be the solution for you.

Dental implants are placed to support the dentures and hold them in place. With more stability than ever before, denture retained implants allow you to eat, talk and laugh freely without giving your dentures a second thought. 

What are the alternative options to implants? 

If you don’t think that dental implants are for you, there are other options available.  
Your dentist will be able to assess and discuss all options available for replacing your missing tooth.
