What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a fixed, long-term solution to fix your smile. They are strong, comfortable and very natural-looking, and for the significant majority of patients, tooth implants are the best option for replacing missing teeth.
The tooth implant itself is an artificial root made from titanium, integrating over time to become part of the jawbone. A tooth 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’s 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. 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.
Types of Dental Implants
When it comes to your tooth implants there are lots of options available – it all depends on how many teeth you need to replace, and where they are in your mouth.
For those with individual missing teeth, a single dental implant is an ideal choice, being a ‘like for like’ replacement while filling in the gap.
Those with multiple missing teeth may require an implant-retained bridge, where a line of crowns are supported at each end with the implant.
In cases where all teeth are missing, dental implants can replace the need for dentures. This is because several implants can be fitted to provide anchor points for the replacement crowns.

Our Dental Implant Work
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.
At Blossom dental 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.
