Dental Implants by Professionals
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, usually made of Titanium, which can be used to support anything from a single tooth to a full dentition.
They are mainly used for fixed teeth (non-removable crowns or bridges), but can also be used for removable bridgework or to secure a loose denture.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants stand alone, they are not reliant on other teeth, unlike tooth-supported bridges which are attached to natural teeth.
Dental implant treatments generally take longer to complete than other restorative treatments such as crowns, bridges, or veneers involving natural teeth.

Dental Implants: Everything You Need to Know
What are Dental Implants?
Titanium implants are predictable, highly successful, and long-lasting. They are not a new treatment, the first implants were done by Professor Branemark in 1965.
Implants are made of titanium metal, but you don’t get Titanium teeth. The teeth attached to the implants are highly aesthetic and function well.
How do Dental Implants Work?
- It is not necessary to have an implant for each missing tooth.
- Single tooth replacement (where a tooth is beyond repair or already missing) would require a single implant.
- 2 implants will replace up to 6 teeth for fixed bridgework and a whole jaw for a removable bridge or for denture stabilisation.
- 3 implants will replace up to 10 teeth in fixed form or again a whole jaw of removable teeth.
- Full jaw tooth replacement is commonly done using 4 implants (all on 4) but more implants may be preferable where this is possible.
- Implant treatment can be done in both upper and lower jaws. Fixed teeth on implants are robust and secure, they have less sensation than natural teeth, however.
- As well as conventional sized implants, there are mini-implants which are used less frequently.
How much do Dental Implants cost?
The cost of implant treatment is generally similar to the cost of fixed bridgework on natural teeth to replace the same number of teeth.
How long does it take in install Dental Implants?
Placement of dental implants can be quite quick. A single implant may be done in a 15-minute procedure. More complex treatments involving multiple implants will take longer.

What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials, typically titanium, that are surgically placed in the jawbone to support replacement teeth such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Why might I need dental implants?

How do dental implants differ from other tooth replacement options?
Dental implants are unique as they integrate with the jawbone, offering superior stability, function, and aesthetics compared to traditional solutions like dentures or bridges.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution. With proper care and regular check-ups, they can last a lifetime.
What are our clients saying?
I went to advanced dental care after a poor time at my NHS dentist, and their service is far above anything I've received before. My treatment plan was made on the day of consultation and is easy to understand.
I would highly recommend Advance Dental Care. All the staff are very helpful and polite. They create a relaxed atmosphere which is welcome in an establishment, where most people are feeling anxious. The actual dental care is excellent.
