What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a fixed, long-term solution. They are strong, comfortable and very natural-looking, and for the significant majority of patients, they are the best option for replacing missing teeth.

The implant itself is an artificial root made from titanium, integrating over time to become part of the jawbone. An implant can hold a single replacement dental crown, a bridge or a denture, depending on how many teeth are missing.

Tooth implants are virtually indistinguishable from your own teeth, allowing you to enjoy an attractive and natural-looking smile once more. As well as this, when teeth are lost, the surrounding bone tends to shrink, resulting in the ageing ‘caved in’ look. The bone can be preserved by the placement of dental implants, with the shape and the structure of the lips and cheeks maintained.

Features and Benefits of Dental Implants

  • They look and perform like natural teeth.
  • There is no artificial plastic on the roof of your mouth and the need for adhesives or denture creams is eliminated.
  • There is no fear of your teeth slipping or falling out. There will be no need to avoid any activities and you will not need to worry about what you eat.
  • They have no impact on the surrounding healthy teeth. Dental implants can be placed and the new crown fitted without damaging healthy adjacent teeth.
  • They have a very high success rate. With over decades of clinical research, dental implants have a 97% or higher success rate.

Our Tooth Implant Work

Here at Blossom Dental Care, we only use dental implants from world leading companies. We work very closely with Dentsply Implants, who have 25 years of clinically validated research, to ensure that we can give you the best long-term solution for your smile. There are cheaper systems available, but they do not have the research, quality, backup and reliability that we require.

We are also aware of clinics in the UK using copy implants, and just like any other fake goods, they rarely live up to expectations. We will never risk our patients’ care, security and the longevity of their results with fake implant components.

We also use advanced 3D imaging as part of our work, helping us to achieve fantastic results for our patients. Our State-of-the-Art 3D digital imaging machine is some of the most advanced technology available, allowing us to look at your jaw bone from all angles, contributing to accurate planning and safe surgery.

Frequently asked questions

About dental implants at Blossom Dental Care & Implant Studio

  1. What is a dental implant?

    Dental implants replace missing teeth and look and feel like the real thing. They can replace single or several missing teeth and can also be used to securely fix dentures.

    The implant is a titanium screw that is placed beneath the gum line and into the jawbone. This small surgical procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic. Over time the surrounding bone begins to integrate with the implant, which essentially acts as an artificial tooth root.

    When healing is completed, individual crowns or bridges can be attached to the implants. Healing usually takes from 3 to 6 months so it’s possible to wear temporary crowns or bridges during this time.

  2. Will it hurt?

    We will numb your gums so that you do not feel any discomfort, whilst we can also offer sedation for anxious or nervous patients. Afterwards, over the counter painkillers are normally enough to control any discomfort, even after extensive treatment.

  3. How long does the treatment take?

    This does depend on factors such as the severity of any gum disease and individual needs, but generally tooth implant treatment takes between 3 and 6 months.* If you have any failing teeth, the first step would be to remove them before the implant process begins. The implants would then be placed into the gum and jawbone and left to heal for at least 3 months. An impression is taken and our state of the art laboratory will make your bespoke crown and/or bridge before it is fitted onto the implant at your final appointment.

  4. What will the new teeth look like?

    We’ll do everything we can to make sure you feel confident and comfortable with your new smile. That means ensuring you have the opportunity to preview your smile before it’s fitted. For most patients, we can also give you the chance to see how your smile will look in your own mouth before any work is carried out.

  5. How long do dental implants last?

    If you care for dental implants properly, they can last for many years. One of their great benefits is that you care for them just as you would natural teeth. You’ll need to brush twice a day and floss once a day, and it’s also essential to attend check-ups and hygiene appointments.

  6. Can everybody have them?

    It is often the case that anybody with missing teeth can benefit from having dental implants, with very few cases leading to an individual unable to have the implants. Before any treatment begins, we will conduct an assessment to ensure that you are able to have tooth implants.

  7. How do I care for my dental implants?

    It is essential that you care for your tooth implants, in order for them to last for as long as possible. The correct way to care for your tooth implants is to brush twice a day, whilst also flossing once a day and attending regular check-ups.
