Dental Implants

Single and Multiple Dental Implants

Single missing tooth

If you have a missing single tooth, then the most long-lasting, effective and natural looking replacement is undoubtedly a single dental implant. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

A dental implant is placed into your jaw bone to provide a solid artificial ‘root’ for a tooth.The tooth will be perfectly shaped and colour-matched to blend in with your surrounding teeth. Once in place, they are as strong as a natural tooth and have the potential to last a lifetime.

Multiple missing teeth

If you are missing multiple teeth there are several options available to you.

  • Individual implants
    Implants are individually placed to replace your missing teeth.
  • Joining two or more implants together
    Two or more implants may be used to replace multiple missing teeth. The implants provide the support for a bridge which will span the space of the missing teeth.
  • A removable retained denture
    This option is available when you are missing all your upper or lower teeth. A few implants will be required to hold a denture securely in place, providing a great improvement from traditional removable dentures. This will give you a life changing transformation enabling you to eat the foods you love and smile with confidence.

Our team Horbury Dental Care will consult with you to determine where and how your implant should be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, we will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

In some circumstances patients find themselves with no teeth, or a set of failing teeth. Well you don’t need to worry.

We have made it possible to completely restore your smile. It is the gold standard treatment for replacing several or all your missing teeth. At Horbury Dental Care our implant dentists follow a specific protocol to determine whether our ‘Same Day Smiles’ method of full arch reconstruction would be suitable for you. X-rays and 3D imaging is used along with precision planning and design.

What is the process if I need all my teeth replacing?

  • Step 1
    On the day of treatment any remaining failing teeth are removed so that several implants (usually 4-6) can be placed, all done with sedation so that you are completely at ease whilst your treatment is underway. The implants, once in place provide the support for your new provisional bridge. The bridge is fixed in place using small screws so not removable to you but removable by your dentist for maintenance.
  • Step 2
    This bridge is in situ temporarily until healing has occurred. This phase cannot be rushed it takes time and care. There is rarely a need to do so as you have already got an excellent set of teeth, placed on the same day as your implants.
  • Step 3
    The healing time can vary from patient to patient. Once the dentist is satisfied this has been achieve, the provisional bridge will be replaced with a highly durable permanent bridge. Meaning from the day you have your implants placed you will be smiling with confidence.
  • Step 4
    Once the desired result has been achieved we will continue to see you annually to ensure your gum and bone health is maintained to the highest standard.
