Dental Implants at Holly Dental Practice

Permanently replace missing teeth

The fear of losing our teeth is something many of us experience. Today, however, tooth loss doesn’t have to be a permanent problem.

Our dental implant system at Holly Dental Practice in Preston provides a safe and reliable method for replacing teeth, whether you have lost one, several or all of them.

Reliable, Natural Looking and Cost Effective

Usually the best solution for permanently replacing one or more teeth, Dental Implants are designed to completely replace your old tooth – at both a root and crown level.

The dental implant procedure involves relatively minor surgery to implant a synthetic ‘tooth root’ into the jaw bone. Made from extremely strong, durable and biocompatible titanium, the implant gradually integrates with the bone tissue, creating a secure and permanent foundation for an abutment onto which a bespoke dental restoration can be placed.

As well as providing full function and a completely lifelike tooth restoration, dental implants also support your jaw bone structure, preventing the ageing ‘shrinkage’ that occurs when missing teeth are left untreated. well as providing full function and a completely lifelike tooth restoration, dental implants also support your jaw bone structure, preventing the ageing ‘shrinkage’ that occurs when missing teeth are left untreated.

Your new teeth will look and feel natural, not only replacing the visible parts of the teeth, but also the root as well, allowing you to live, laugh and enjoy life with total confidence.

Thank you to all at Holly Dental! I needed a full span upper bridge replacing due to existing teeth failing. A daunting prospect as implants would have to be considered... I now have a perfect smile! All the staff at Holly Dental are friendly are an excellent team, working with new modern equipment to achieve the best results possible.

Replacing a single tooth

If a single tooth has been lost due to an accident a dental implant can provide a reliable long-term solution in many cases. This treatment does not require any cutting of the adjacent teeth – such as would be the case with a traditional bridge.

Replacing multiple teeth

Dental implants can also be used to support multiple teeth. This usually involves the placement of two implants, which are used to support a fixed bridge.

As an alternative to a denture, it is possible to replace all upper or lower teeth using just a few dental implants. The number of implants required is dependent on the clinical assessment of each individual case.

Implant-retained dentures

A loose fitting denture is a common problem for thousands of people. Securing dentures with dental implants will restore chewing function and reduce irritation of the gums.

Frequently asked questions:

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a high-tech plug used to replace your tooth root. It’s surgically implanted into the jaw using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, and is made from a super-strong, biocompatible material – usually titanium – to which your jaw bone will eventually bond. Then a prosthetic tooth can be screwed onto the implant.

What are dental implants made of?

Dental implants are typically engineered from titanium, a seriously strong material that is also biocompatible – which means your jawbone, in time, will fuse naturally with it.

Can anyone have implants?

Implants can only be considered for healthy mouths – so some patients may find that the process of getting implants will first require other dental work, such as bone grafting, gum surgery or orthodontics. Make an appointment at Holly Dental for an initial consultation to assess your suitability for implants.

How does the dental implant procedure work?

Dental implant surgery is high-tech and minimally invasive. With the help of 3D scanning and a computer-guided dental laser, an implant can be placed so accurately that it involves the least possible trauma and therefore a swift recovery time. Once the implant has been placed in the jaw, you will need to wait a few weeks for the integration process to take place – this is where your natural bone tissue grows around the implant, securing it in place for life. Once integration has successfully completed, you’ll be able to return to Holly Dental for the final fitting of your new tooth.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Dental implants provide the same function, feel and look as natural teeth – so you’ll never need to compromise when it comes to eating, drinking and smiling with complete confidence. In addition, dental implants play an important role in maintaining the structure of your face: their firm position within the jawbone prevents teeth from shifting around and the jaw from shrinking – both of which cause ageing facial sagging. With dental implants, you’ll stay looking youthful for longer.

What are the different options for implants?

Implants can be used for a variety of purposes, replacing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full set of teeth. Implants can also be used to permanently anchor bridges and dentures.
