Dental Implants

A long lasting solution for missing teeth and unstable dentures

Replace a missing tooth or teeth with dental implants in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire

A LONG-TERM SOLUTION TO TOOTH LOSS

When you lose a tooth or multiple teeth it can be tempting to leave the space, but studies now show that teeth either side of a space have a higher risk of needing further treatment due to decay. This is because teeth will drift into the space available in the mouth, often making them more difficult to clean. Our dental implants in Stoke-on-Trent can stop this drift from happening and also help to maintain the bone support in your mouth, which will bring major long-term benefits to your teeth and their stability.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium screws that are permanently anchored into the jawbone, providing a stable and predictable base for your restoration. Titanium has been selected because of its proven: strength, lightweight, biocompatibility and history of success in the field of medical joint replacements. It is a minor surgical procedure which is done at the practice using Local Anaesthetic, sedation is also available. Amit and the team are highly trained and experienced in the placement and restoration of dental implants so you can be assured you are in safe hands.

The use of tooth implants allows a variety of options to provide you with a healthy smile:

Single tooth replacements
Fill an unsightly gap with a bespoke made crown without compromising your surrounding teeth

Implant supported bridge
Allows you to replace multiple teeth for an improved smile and effective chewing.

Implant retained dentures

Frequently Asked Questions

About Dental Implants at Abbeyhouse Dental

Are they expensive?

Contrary to what you might think, conventional dentures are not always cost-effective.

The initial layout for dental implant treatment varies on how many implants are needed and if bone augmentation is required. Other factors include the surgery itself, lab work, the prosthesis and the dentist’s and dental technician’s fees.
A cost plan will be developed only when all of these aspects have been addressed, and in some cases, dental implants may be more economical in the long term

Is Surgery Painful?

Dental implants are generally inserted under local anesthetic to help minimize discomfort. If you experience any doubts about the condition of the implant site after the procedure, please make sure to let us know! We can place Implants using sedation if required.

Is there any age limitations?

It is possible to insert implants as soon as the jaw has stopped growing. Therefore, in young patients, dental implants can only be placed once their jaw bones are fully developed. At the other end of the spectrum, there is no age limit, given of course that the patient does not display any significant medical risk factors. This will be evaluated by us during consultation.

How long do I have to wait for my final restoration?

After insertion of your implant, the bonding process (osseointegration) takes about 6-8 weeks.

In this time, the implant reaches the stability needed for it to bear weight like a natural tooth. As always, healing times can vary depending on the individual condition and indication.

How do I look after my implant?

Coming along to see us every 6 months to ensure your implants are maintained. If you have been referred to us from another practice or usually see another dentist we recommend you see us once a year. It is important that these checks are done by us so that if any problems did arise we could deal with them quickly. In addition to this we also recommend;

Booking to see our hygienist- she will provide you with the skills, tools and techniques to ensure that your implant is properly cared for at home to avoid any problems. She will recommend brushes and products that will help keep the area clean as well as providing you with regular professional cleaning.

Implant retained denture wearers- we also recommend seeing one of our team yearly to check your implants are healthy. You will also have to have the connections in the denture replaced regularly as these will degrade over time

How can I get started?

We recommend a free consultation with a member of our team who can discuss your concerns, talk you through treatment and explain costs and payment options. We have a wide range of finance solutions to suit any budget.
