It’s hard to share a smile when you’re aware of gaps and missing teeth, which is why we use single dental implants to bring your smile back to life. Dental implants are made from materials that work well with the human body, so they are safe and reliable. The surfaces of these materials stimulate fusion with your own jawbone to maintain bone and minimise loss. That’s why they’ve been used by dentists for over 40 years as a trusted way to replace teeth.
Whether you’ve lost a tooth in an accident or through decay, we use one implant and a crown to replace it. The great news is that it will look and feel like a real tooth. Better still, it won’t affect the health of your natural teeth, but it will preserve your jawbone to keep it strong and intact.
Our implant dentist will assess your suitability and advise on a suitable solution. You’ll have every opportunity to ask questions and we welcome this, to ensure you are completely comfortable with the procedure. Placing is performed quickly and is relatively pain free. A small hole is drilled into the jawbone and the implant is then fitted. A new artificial tooth will be fitted onto the implant. We’ll check the implant to ensure it fits properly, is comfortable and matches your other teeth, and advise you on the best aftercare.

It’s an artificial tooth root made of biocompatible materials. Placed beneath the gum line and into the jawbone, it creates a secure place for replacement teeth or bridges to be positioned.
Most people of all ages with good general health are suitable for dental implants. There are very few health conditions that contraindicate dental implant treatment, but it should be noted that smoking and a history of gum disease have been shown to affect implant treatment success rates.
From consultation to brand new smile, dental implant treatment usually takes around 3-6 months. It can vary from one person to the next – we’ll discuss this during your consultation.
At Beeston Dental, we’re committed to making all of your visits as comfortable and pain and stress-free as possible. We use local anaesthetic when placing the implant into your gum and jaw to ensure no discomfort. We also offer sedation for our more nervous patients. You can ask any questions and expect honest, straightforward answers and we’ll go through each step of the treatment in detail.
They can last a lifetime if you care for them properly. One of their great benefits is that you look after dental implants just as you would natural teeth.
Clean them using your toothbrush and interdental brushes twice a day – interdental brushes slide between the teeth and are ideal for cleaning tricky and hard-to-reach areas. Giving up smoking will help to protect your jawbone and it’s important to visit us regularly.
