Dental implants

Dental implant treatment can change your life. Whether you’re replacing a single tooth, or a complete smile, dental implants offer secure teeth that feel just like your own, restoring both your smile and your quality of life.

Not only can implants recreate natural-looking teeth, but they also safeguard your overall dental health. Replacing missing teeth is extremely important, as missing teeth cause bone loss which will age your face and could potentially cause adjacent teeth to become loose too.

At Cedar Dental Care we can assist with all implant cases, from the simplest to the most complex. Our patients have the peace of mind that they can access progressive technology and benefit from a wealth of experience from our implant dentist, our dentist.

What is a dental implant?

Putting it simply, a dental implant is an artificial root made from titanium which is used to take the place of the original root, securely bonding with the jawbone over time. Once the new root has fully healed, which usually takes between 3 to 6 months, this is used to attach replacement teeth in place using crowns, a bridge or a denture. These replacement teeth are carefully crafted to ensure they match your natural teeth, leaving you with a beautiful, natural looking smile.

Types of implant

  • Single implant – implants can be used to replace a single tooth, restoring your smile with a single implant and crown.
  • Multiple implants – if you have a gap from a few missing teeth, dental implants can be placed to securely fix a dental bridge in place.
  • Full smile restorations – If you are missing a full arch of teeth, or the full set, 4 to 8 implants can be placed to securely attach a denture. Anchoring dentures on dental implants ensure that they do not slip and are comfortable.

Why choose dental implants?

Crowns, bridges and dentures address the short-term cosmetic problem of missing teeth but do nothing to stop bone loss. Crown and bridge dentistry also requires grinding down healthy teeth leaving them at much greater risk for cavities and tooth failure. Dentures become uncomfortable and unstable over time as the jawbone shrinks causing eating and speech problems.

With dental implants, replacement teeth are securely anchored without compromising any neighbouring healthy teeth. Dental implants, like natural teeth, stimulate the jaw and stop bone loss.

Dental Implants Components

The benefits of implants

  • Implants look and feel just like natural teeth – you shouldn’t notice any difference.
  • Implants provide permanent stability and comfort without affecting healthy teeth.
  • Implants won’t come loose or fall out.
  • Implants can last for many years if you maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Implants prevent ageing bone loss, by stimulating your bone structure and stabilising the surrounding teeth.

Maintenance and care of the Implants

Implants require regular maintenance and oral hygiene must be kept to a high standard to avoid risk of inflammation around the Implant resulting in Implantitis. If this occurs, the Implant will be lost. A new implant can only be placed in the same space if there is sufficient bone.

The implants should be maintained by, tooth brushing, dental floss and Tee Pees as demonstrated to you.

The hygienist will use plastic scalers around the implant crowns.

Are you suitable for treatment?

Patients must have healthy gums and enough jawbone to support dental implants. At your initial consultation our dentist will use x-rays and scans to establish if pre-treatment is required and will explain this further.

Some patients may need to see a hygienist for a course of treatment to ensure their gums are strong and healthy before the dental implant process can begin. our dentist will also check that there is sufficient bone for an implant to be placed successfully at this initial consultation. If there is insufficient bone you may need to need pre-treatment before your dental implants can be placed. This may include oral surgery procedures such as bone grafting, bone expansion or sinus lifts.

Speak with your dentist for further information or if you have any questions regarding implants. Book a consultation with our dentist today to find out more about how dental implants could change your life!

Jyotveer Gill

I had an exceptional experience on my first visit. The facilities were accessible and all staff were wonderful. Dr Obhrai was wonderful. He was very thoughtful and gentle when resolving several issues with my teeth. I was impressed how he kept me informed throughout the procedure, explaining complex treatments in an easy to understand way. His assistant wictoria was also great. 5 stars and hope not to be back (considering great treatment and advice) but if I am, I know I am in good hands! Highly recommended!!

My husband has been a patient to this dental practice and been very happy. Today we took our daughter for the first time and we couldn’t be happier. Our very nervous 5 year old really enjoyed her first proper check up and was made to feel at ease by Abbey (the dentist) and the wonderful dental nurse. They are both so so kind and really good at their work too. The staff at reception are also very nice and helpful too. Highly recommend this practice, it’s clean, great staff and thorough check up.

"I am very pleased with the service Ceder Dental Care have provided for me over the last year, especially Rebecca Law who has been extremely helpful in guiding me through my Invisalign journey. From start to finish she was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful in advising me the correct treatment for my teeth, and the end result looked brilliant. I couldn't recommend her and Ceder Dental Care more.
