Dental implants

Brighton dental implants made easy

Dental implants are one of the best methods for replacing lost or missing teeth. They look incredibly realistic, so that your smile looks authentic. At Dendy Village Dental in Brighton we use high quality Dentsply Sirona implants from Germany.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbone in the form of a small titanium screw. The screw acts as the foundation or prosthetic tooth root for a new artificial tooth. Dental implants can replace single or multiple missing teeth. 

A quality tooth implant crown is virtually impossible to pick from the surrounding natural teeth. Colour-matching is part of the process.  It’s very likely that you’ve met people with a tooth implant and never guessed!

Implant

Dr Yuan Xia answers your FAQ below.

How long does a dental implant procedure take?

There is no set time frame for a dental implant procedure. Every patient is different. During the initial consultation, the dentist will examine your situation and give you an indication of procedure time.  

Can a dental implant be done in one day? 

An implant and crown cannot be done at the same time. We don’t offer this option. During your initial free consultation, a dentist will give you a treatment plan which will cover the steps for implant and crown procedure. 

How long after dental implants can I eat normally? 

Eating soft foods post-surgery is recommended. A good rule of thumb is that once the crown is on, it’s all OK to eat normally.

How soon after tooth extraction can I get an implant?

At Dendy Village Dental we offer 3 months + post-op insert. 

Can you get a temporary tooth while waiting for an implant? 

A temporary implant tooth can always be prepared if the situation requires. 

Dr Michelle Keogh answers your FAQ below. 

How painful is getting a dental implant?

After being given the local anaesthetic injection, there is no pain associated with having a dental implant placed. You may feel some pressure.

Are you put to sleep for dental implants?

Usually, dental implants are performed under local anaesthetic, and there is generally no need to be put to sleep for this treatment. Occasionally certain circumstances warrant a general anaesthetic. 

How does it feel to have a dental implant? 

​Having a dental implant in your mouth feels ‘solid’ and no different to your natural teeth.

What hurts more tooth extraction or implant?

Both procedures are performed under local anaesthetic and hence should be comfortable. There is perhaps more pressure applied during a tooth extraction. 

Do tooth implants feel and look natural?

Tooth implants feel very natural. The crown placed on top of the dental implant will look very natural and should blend in with the rest of your teeth.

Teeth implant procedure explained

Why are teeth implants more expensive than dentures?

In a nutshell, dental implants are more expensive than dentures because there’s more work involved and the implant components are of a manufacturing standard that further adds to the cost. 

So why choose a tooth implant instead of a denture or bridge? An implant is a more permanent solution with the implant directly inserted into the jaw bone.  It isn’t generally detached like a denture or bridge is at night-time and the functionality is more akin to that of a real tooth.  A denture by comparison is adhered to the gum surface and doesn’t connect with the jaw.

Implants require a minor surgical procedure whereas dentures typically do not.

Can dental implants be too cheap?

Dendy Village Dental encourages patients to gain a full understanding of how much an implant procedure costs – and what they receive for their money.  In the interest of transparency, we welcome prospective patients to attend a free 1:1 consult with an Dendy Village dentist to discuss implant options as well as the alternatives.  Exact price is dependant on each patient’s unique requirements but at this no-obligation initial consult we can certainly provide you with an estimation of how much a tooth implant costs from Dendy Village Dental.

Whichever dental clinic you choose, ask as many questions as you need to feel confident that you are getting value for money and not simply the lowest price.

Do you offer payment plans for dental implants?

If you’re ready to start a conversation with an Dendy Village Dental about implant procedures, then it’s handy to know that we accept payment through Zip Money.
