Single implants

Have you lost a tooth due to problems like gum disease or extensive tooth decay leading to tooth extraction? Or perhaps a tooth has been knocked out in a sporting injury or accident? Single implants act as natural tooth roots and are used as an alternative to flippers and partial dentures. More.

Multiple implants

Patients can get deals on multiple implants rather than using single implants to close each gap. However, saving money will depend if your missing teeth are in a row or not. More.

How to save money on dental implants

Here at Mint Dental, we go the extra mile to ensure that we offer our patients a wide variety of recognised and accepted procedures that can help them combine traditional treatments with more innovative solutions.

For example, we can offer implant-based systems, like implant dentures or bridges, that can help you replace your missing teeth using more cost-effective approaches. See implants vs bridgework.

Dental implants or dentures?

How do modern implant treatments compare to traditional tooth replacement methods?

Why implants are better than traditional alternatives

Dental bridges and dentures (partial or full) have traditionally been the standard go-to for teeth replacement. 

And whilst they are often successful at closing gaps in the mouth, they are not always the best recommendation to promote strong oral health in the future.

For example, dentures encourage bone loss in the jaw, as it only masks the problem of missing teeth rather than solve the issue as dental implants do.

On top of this, bridgework has been known to encourage bone loss and decay of neighbouring teeth. 

They also require the neighbouring teeth, which are otherwise healthy, to have crowns placed on top, which will lead to failure of these in the future.

As restorative dentists, we encourage our patients to decide based on dental advice following a consultation. However, it never hurts to have all the information on the two tooth replacement methods and how they compare against each other.

What happens when you don't replace missing teeth?

Tooth loss is a very serious condition, and it’s not a situation you should take lightly. When you ignore gaps in the mouth for more than six months, there is a higher likelihood that you may face complications like bone loss that might interfere with receiving implant surgery.

Truthfully, when you lose a tooth, more pressure is added to the neighbouring teeth that have to bear the load. This can lead to the breakdown and failure of these teeth, therefore needing further treatment and possible replacement.

Further, when missing teeth are ignored, the mouth’s condition will become unstable, leading to facial changes and potential further tooth loss.

Sadly, the bone does not grow back; once it’s gone, it’s gone – all we can do as dentists is to place a bone graft to help increase the bone in the depleted areas.

Bone graft surgery will help to make the implant sit more securely and prevent the likelihood of failure. Facts about missing teeth.

Been told you're not suitable for implants?

Bone grafting and sinus lifts or augmentations might also be necessary. It will make implant surgery possible as it increases the amount of bone placed in the upper jaw, where an implant can be placed securely.

Whilst pre-implant procedures like bone grafts and sinus lifts allow patients to become good candidates again for implant surgery, they cause further delays as we have to wait for the mouth to heal sufficiently before placing your implants, which often come with a three-month healing time. More on osseointegration and healing stages.

Are implants painful

The only process that causes some post-treatment soreness is the inserting of the actual implant.

Surgery is undertaken with anaesthetic, and the process is not painful.
However, afterwards, there is some discomfort and gum ache. This should pass after 24-48 hours and is often described as a dull ache around the implant. Most patients are at work the next day.

How painful is a dental implant?

We supply Ibuprofen which 9/10 patients report is sufficient for the pain level.

Should you be in any discomfort post-implant surgery, please telephone the practice and we will see you the same day.

dental implant steps

The Implant Process

Dental implants, when properly cared for, can last a very long time. That said, they will not require special care or maintenance. 

All you will need to do is care for your implants like normal, regular teeth, and thus follow the standard, recommended oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing.

How do dental implants work, and what is implant surgery like?

The first stage
For a dental implant near me

The first stage of an implant procedure is often a dental consultation, where a general overview and assessment of your oral health is carried out – this might include x-rays and scans of your teeth and jaw.

During this stage, we will be able to determine whether you have a sufficient bone density in your jaw, indicating whether your jaw is strong and stable enough to support an implant.

The second stage

Your second appointment with us will be your implant surgery, which is often reported to be pain-free.

However, patients should expect, with any surgery, to feel some slight discomfort following the procedure. But please note that this is soon alleviated in a few days and made manageable with over-the-counter medications.

The third stage
Dental implant healing stage

Following the second stage, and depending on which implant treatment you opt for, you might have undergone a period of healing called osseointegration, which usually takes three or so months.

Once the implant has fused successfully with the jaw bone, we can place your crowns and complete your smile transformation.

Without stable, healthy bone, you’ll likely be a bad candidate for the revolutionary dental implant procedure. More.

Some patients wanting implants are told “no”, because they have insufficient bone to secure the implant. More.

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.
