Dental implants are becoming an increasingly common dental treatment. We want our patients to benefit from this treatment option, allowing gaps to be restored without the need to use destructive bridges or dentures.

And now the after with a four unit bridge on 2 implants.

Our happy patient gave us his thoughts on the process:

"I have to say that after 10 days the implant bridge is a great success. It is fabulous to be without the denture, I am delighted with the whole treatment. I was made fully aware of all the options for my mouth and the costs involved with detailed explanations of all the stages.

A big thank you to all."

qualified in Dentistry from Dundee University in 1993 and have worked in General Practice since. I started my first practice in Edinburgh in 1998, expanding and moving into our current practice location in 2005. The practice was further improved and extended in 2011, providing more clinical space and improving our sterilisation facilities. I am extensively involved in the training of young dentists, providing mentoring and clinical support to newly qualified colleagues since 2005. The practice was British Dental Association Good Practice Scheme accredited in 2010. I completed a diploma in advanced restorative dentistry at Edinburgh University in 2011 and in 2014 I completed a course in advanced dental implant dentistry at the Centre for Advanced Dental Education in Manchester, aiming to keep the practice at the forefront of oral health techniques.
 
Dental Implants - the Facts...

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implants are the standard of care for tooth replacement. They are bonded with the bone to provide permanent support for crowns and dentures.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITHOUT TREATMENT?

Your jawbone begins to shrink from lack of stimulation. Losing your teeth will affect your smile and change the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE?

Dental implants can be placed in most adults. Adolescents may be eligible once their face structure has matured. Please ask your dental implant specialist to explain the benefits and risks to see if dental implants are right for you.

IS IMPLANT PLACEMENT PAINFUL?

No, dental implants are typically placed under local anesthesia. Most treatments can be completed in your clinician's office.

HOW SOON MAY I RETURN TO WORK AFTER TREATMENT?

You may return to work the next day unless otherwise instructed by your clinician. You may be prescribed medication to alleviate any minor discomfort you may have.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO PLACE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

They may be placed in as little as 30 to 60 minutes depending on the location and the number of implants placed.

WHAT IF THERE IS NOT ENOUGH BONE OR GUM TISSUE FOR THE DENTAL IMPLANT?

A graft may be needed if your clinician determines there is not sufficient bone or gum tissue.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY NEW TEETH?

Treatment time varies by patient. Typically, you will have some type of temporary teeth until your implants bond to the bone. Your clinician can provide a time estimate based on your treatment needs.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY IMPLANTS?

Home care for your implants consists of brushing and flossing. Regular dental visits are required for long-term health and success.

HOW LONG CAN IMPLANTS LAST?

Implants can last many years if cared for properly. Many implants have been in place for more than 40 years.

HOW DOES THE LONG-TERM VALUE OF IMPLANTS COMPARE TO OTHER TREATMENT OPTIONS?

Dental implants are low maintenance and provide stability and confidence in your smile. Therefore, the long-term value of dental implants far exceeds conventional treatment options.
