Dental implants

Dental implants in Rugby

Dental implants are the ideal way to replace missing teeth. They offer a permanent, fixed solution, and they look highly realistic – implants are the closest thing you can get to real teeth.

We regularly use implants to replace individual teeth for our patients. We can discuss your requirements further and find the right solution for you during a free initial consultation at our dental clinic in Rugby. Call 01788 813777 to arrange your appointment.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are permanent alternatives to natural teeth. They consist of a small metal screw, with an artificial tooth (such as a crown or bridge) attached. The implant itself is located in the jawbone, in place of the tooth’s root. The procedure is safe and creates a natural-looking smile.

Are dental implants right for you?

Here are some of the key benefits of dental implants:
Implants are permanent and fixed, so they don’t move around and feel just like real teeth
Your new artificial teeth can be made to blend in with your existing teeth
Implants let you eat and drink as normal – they won’t move, wobble or cause pain
When they’re properly looked after, implants can last a lifetime
The structure of adjacent teeth is maintained as they don’t need to be prepared or ground down
Implants preserve bone, unlike other tooth replacement options which can cause bone loss

If you have more missing teeth, then multiple implants are an option too. You won’t usually need an implant for every tooth as we’ll be able to link them together.

There are various restorative dentistry options for replacing teeth, such as bridges and dentures. We’ll take the time to discuss all your options with you, giving you the advice and support you need to make a decision.

Replacing individual teeth with a dental implant: what happens?

This is what happens when you have dental implants to replace individual teeth:
Step 1:
Free consultation. You’ll get to meet an expert in dental implants who can give you a diagnosis and discuss your options. If required, we’ll take x-rays and perform a CT scan.
Step 2:
Treatment. We fit the titanium implants, which is a small surgical procedure performed under local anaesthetic. We can also fit temporary crowns – you need never be without a tooth!
Step 3:
Healing. The healing process will take around three to six months. We’ll advise you on all the necessary aftercare and you’ll have check-ups to make sure your implants are healing as expected.
Step 4:
Permanent tooth fitting. We take impressions and create permanent, natural-looking porcelain crowns in our laboratory, ensuring they match your adjacent teeth.

Looking after your implants

Implants need the right aftercare. We’ll advise you before your surgery and will make sure you have everything you need to look after them. Once your implants have bonded with your jawbone (which usually takes a few months), you’ll be able to look after them just like natural teeth, with a good brushing and flossing routine – plus regular visits to the dentist and hygienist.
