DENTAL IMPLANTS

Our dental implants are tiny titanium cylinders that replace missing teeth. The implant is inserted into your jawbone and, once it has successfully integrated with the surrounding bone and tissues, a secure crown or replacement tooth is placed over the implant. The entire implant system looks and feels like a natural tooth. Why not contact us today to see how we can help.

FAQs

Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have a host of benefits that make them one of our most popular restorative treatments:
  • They are securely anchored and do not slip or shift like dentures can.
  • By filling a gap left by a lost tooth, they prevent the surrounding bone from shrinking, or teeth from drifting.
  • Unlike some treatments like bridges, dental implants do not need the surrounding healthy teeth to be altered before placement and therefore do not rely on neighboring teeth for their success.
  • You will be able to eat without pain or discomfort


How long do implants last?
With regular dental examinations and good standards of oral hygiene, your dental implant can last up to 30-40 years.

Is the process painful?
No. You will require local anaesthetic during the placement of your implant. Whilst you may require some painkillers for a couple of days after the placement of the implants, the process will be completely pain-free.

How much do implants cost?
At present, Heybridge Dental Practice will refer you to a local specialist practice for dental implants. As the practice grows, we will be looking to introduce an implant surgeon into the practice.

COVID-19 Guidance

 

PRACTICE UPDATE To all our lovely patients. Thank you so much for all your patience and understanding since we were told to close our practice. It has been a difficult time for all, and we hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. We have been available during our normal opening hours for emergency advice and triaging throughout. We were pleased to hear the recent Government announcement that dental practices can reopen from the 8th of June. We have been working very hard to get as close to this date as possible. As we look ahead SAFETY will be the most important element. We will be using the first week to train our staff and update our policies and protocols, as well as continuously sourcing the necessary personal protective equipment. We hope we can open on the 15th of June for emergency assessments for patients who are in Pain, and provide a limited range of treatments.

As the restrictions start to ease we plan to prioritise our patients that had appointments canceled or problems during the lockdown period. It will be a slow transition to routine care and full range of services. You will notice your patient journey will be somewhat different to what you have been used to. We will be using our website, social media and emails to communicate these changes. Please lookout for these updates! Please do not come to the practice without a pre booked appointment.

We very much look forward to seeing you all soon, and getting back to the ‘new norm’
