Achieving world class results in the most
natural form of tooth replacement
We provide dental treatment to a high standard that has regularly been presented nationally. Our patients appreciate the efforts to achieve such results. Designed to last a lifetime, dental implants are the only long-term solution to replace lost teeth. They can be used as a single missing tooth, to support a bridge (if a few teeth are missing), to stabilise dentures or to replace a full set of teeth. Unlike conventional bridgework, they can replace missing teeth without damage to the adjacent teeth.
The most natural way to replace lost teeth
When a single tooth has been replaced with an implant-supported crown, the new tooth should appear through the gum like a natural tooth. At this clinic we strive to achieve excellence in our clinical work, and are confident that our implant dentistry will consistently achieve far better results than conventional dental treatment.
How dental implants are fitted
A dental implant is a replacement for a natural tooth root, rather like a screw placed into the jawbone. The implant is placed into the bone; at some later stage an ‘abutment’ (a connecting component) is fitted. The abutment links the fixture to a restoration which may be a single crown, bridge or a support for a denture.
Positioning of the implant and subsequent biting forces on it are crucial factors in implant dentistry. The dramatic increase in function brought about by tooth replacement with implants has an important bearing on these factors. A highly experienced implant dentist will understand exactly where and how many implants to place in order to achieve this.
Careful planning for successful implant dentistry
Meticulous planning is the cornerstone of the one80dental approach to implant dentistry. All too often, traditional dentistry has taken a ‘one tooth’ approach where the dentist provides a repair to the broken part of the tooth, or mouth. It is important to look beyond this, to identify the cause of problems and, where possible, eliminate or reduce their impact.
On-going personal attention
Ideally positioned and well restored dental implants are durable and long-lasting, so any instances of failure should be rare. Should the overlying restoration need to be replaced at any point (perhaps to allow a fixed bridge rather than an overdenture), this can be done relatively easily, particularly with the implant system used at one80dental. Through your regular check-ups, we will ensure optimum long-term performance and appearance of your implant-replaced teeth.
