A guide to understanding dental implants in Belfast and Edinburgh

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, few would argue that there is anything better than dental implants. Considered the ‘gold standard’ of teeth replacement options, dental implants can change a person’s life.

At New Life Teeth, we want you to be able to make a fully informed decision about your options and having a good understanding of dental implants helps. Our Belfast and Edinburgh dental practices provide a combination of leading-edge technology, highly skilled expertise and unrivalled patient care. We want every patient’s experience to start before they walk through the door.

This is why we have compiled this short guide about dental implants.

Dental implants in Edinburgh/Belfast – what exactly are they?

A dental implant is a titanium fixture or appliance that replaces the natural tooth root.

Gently  and precisely positioned into the jawbone at the site of a missing tooth, the implant bonds with the bone over time to create a stable platform – one that is far stronger than an existing tooth root.

This platform then provides a permanent foundation for a single crown or can act as support for a dental bridge or an entire arch of prosthetic teeth.

Are you ready to take action?

At New Life Teeth, our Edinburgh or Belfast patients can rest assured that they are in some of the most capable and experienced hands in the country. So if you are considering undergoing dental implant treatment or would like to know more, book a full, free smile consultation at our New Life Teeth Belfast or Edinburgh clinics today.

Am I a candidate for dental implants in Belfast or Edinburgh?

Theoretically, if you have lost one or more teeth then you should be considered for dental implant treatment.

You do, however:

  • Need to be in good overall health

  • Be over the age of 18 – A younger jaw may still be developing

  • Be free from diseases such as uncontrolled diabetes, cancer of the head and neck, uncontrolled periodontal (gum) disease and alcoholism

Ultimately, whether dental implants are right and/or safe for you depends upon a detailed assessment of your mouth and jaw, which our highly experienced team at New Life Teeth in Belfast or Edinburgh will carry out.

They will compile in-depth records of your bite including specialised and detailed 3D CT scans and radiographs. Planning with the help of computerised imaging ensures that the dental implant can be placed in exactly the right position in the bone.
