Dental Implants

A dental implant is a substitute for the root of a missing tooth. Implants are used to replace single teeth by placing a porcelain crown on top. Alternatively, multiple teeth can be replaced by placing a dental bridge over several implants.

They can also be used to hold dentures in position. Dental implants are a very elegant solution to the problem of a missing tooth.

They are fixed in position, look and feel like natural teeth, and avoid the problems associated with bridges or dentures. They are the closest thing in dentistry to natural teeth.

Why Choose a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are not removable, look and feel like natural teeth, and don’t require any adjustments to the adjacent teeth – a significant long term benefit to your oral health.

Dentures are removable, and as such may move when eating and speaking. Some patients also find them bulky or uncomfortable to wear. Bridges require the adjacent teeth to be filed down which may cause problems down the line.

It is a shame to have to file down a healthy tooth and risk damaging or losing it.

Benefits

  • Replace a missing tooth (or teeth)
  • Doesn’t require any adjustment to the natural teeth
  • Look and feel like natural teeth
  • Avoid the problems associated with dentures
  • Laugh and smile again with confidence
  • Prevents bone loss after tooth extraction
  • Same day implant and crown is possible (in suitable cases)
  • Over 99% success rate (at 3Dental)
  • Minimal recovery time

How can Dental Implants help with Dentures?

If you have dentures, you will be aware that they move around as you eat and speak. This tends to get worse over time because the jaws gradually shrink when there are no teeth present.

Eventually there may be little bone for the dentures to rest on causing dentures to slip and slide, fall when speaking, or make chewing some foods impossible. Dental implants can be used to hold your dentures in place, eliminating these problems.

The Dental Implant Process

  1. Initial free assessment
  2. 3D scan to assess suitability
  3. Moulds of the mouth taken if required
  4. Treatment plan devised
  5. All costs discussed up front
  6. Implant placement
  7. Review

  9. Teeth are fitted 4-6 months after implant placement

Had terrible pain and a friend who works as a dental nurse recommended this practice to me. They were able to accommodate me with an emergency appointment almost immediately. When I went in all the staff were so welcoming and friendly and did their best to put me at ease (I'm an extremely nervous patient). My dentist Paul was really fantastic and I couldn't recommend him highly enough!

I’ve never had a good experience at any dentist. Because of this I’ve put off getting dental work done and as a result have a lot of things I need to get done. I read the good reviews and finally decided to face my fears and go to 3dental. Everybody was very nice to me, I was concerned that they would see all the things I need to get done and shame me or belittle me as other dentists have but they were very nice to me and professional and just focused on what the plan would be. I really do have severe anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist and when I showed up for my 2nd appointment to get a tooth pulled I was very anxious and could feel myself wanting to back out but everyone was so nice that I actually had the courage to stay and follow through. The receiptionists, assistants, and dentists really did go above and beyond to talk me through my fears and put me at ease, they have a lot of patience as well. I plan on going back to get everything I need done. This place was a game changer for me. I let myself be in pain for years with teeth that need root canals, or cavities filled and I’m so happy to finally be taking care of it.

This was my second visit to 3 dental. I am fairly terrified of the dentist and Have had sedation in the past. But I had a broken tooth and it was ripping my mouth apart. I saw a dentist called Chris... well he was absolutely fantastic on both occasions. Explained everything to me. I didn't feel a thing not even the injection. I have a perfect new tooth and I am delighted. The place is lovely. Its Spotless and very friendly. The nurse was lovely. I was so nervous I didn't get her name but she helped calm me down.... the dentist had such lovely manners too every time he asked the nurse for something he said please and thank you..... I would highly recommend it....

Right from my initial visit to 3 dental I felt I was in safe and very competent hands. At the first visit, I was introduced to the nurses who would assist as well as having the whole process explained. I was given the information in writing and time to think about it.At each subsequent visit, Peter explained what was being done and at no stage did I experience excessive pain or feel scared of the process. Great care was taken to ensure that I was at ease. I was given clear advice on how to care for my teeth and gums to aid the healing between visits.I was impressed with the precision of the treatment and the high professional standards and competence from all staff at all visits.I would have no hesitation in recommending 3 Dental anyone who needs dental work done in a safe, pleasant, friendly, professional and pain free environment. I can't recommend 3 Dental enough ... they've restored my confidence and self-esteem, I feel so much better about myself and I really enjoy smiling again 😁
