Dental implants are an ideal way to replace one or more missing teeth and can be used to provide a secure anchor for dentures. Implants are a popular treatment choice because they are a proven long-term solution to improve function and aesthetics, giving a boost to self-esteem and confidence.
Dental implants have been around for more than 50 years and they look, feel and work like real teeth. Implants have become a very successful and reliable way of replacing teeth. So if you are missing individual teeth or wear a denture, then implants could be the solution for you.
Implants look, feel & work like real teeth
At Clarendon House Dental Centre, implant treatment planning is carried out as a combined treatment, with implants being placed by local and highly experienced dental surgeons with the final restoration completed by our principal dentist, Chris French.
If you would like further information, please ask at reception or give us a call and we will be happy to provide you with additional literature or book a consultation appointment.
What are dental implants?
Implants are titanium posts that are placed into the bone of the jaw and function like the root of a missing tooth. There is fusion of the implant surface and the bone resulting in a solid structure to which crowns, bridges or dentures can be fixed.
Where will my implant treatment take place?
After all the planning stages are finished, the first procedure is carried out at one of two handpicked ‘placing’ Surgeon’s practices nearby. Some weeks later the fixtures will be ready for Chris French to start restoring at Clarendon House Dental Centre.
Will implant treatment hurt?
In most cases the treatment is simple and straightforward and any post-operative discomfort can be controlled with simple painkillers.
What can I expect from my treatment?
The procedure usually takes place in two phases. Firstly, a titanium fixture is placed into the bone of the jaw and allowed to integrate. Later, a scan or impression is taken to allow a replacement tooth/teeth to be made in a laboratory. This is then either cemented or screwed onto the titanium fixture. We work closely with dental surgeons who focus on the first phase of this procedure and we complete the second phase.
What implant systems do you use?
We insist on using Dentsply and Straumann implants, which are both world renowned and highly regarded in the industry.
How long does implant treatment take?
For the best and more predictable results, in most cases it is recommended that treatment is phased rather than carried out in one visit as it allows the body time to heal properly.
Do you offer any payment options?
Yes. Payment can be spread over the course of your implant treatment.
