Missing Teeth

Get back your real smile by restoring gaps in the front or back of the mouth with crowns that sit comfortably on dental implants to provide a beautiful natural appearance while matching your existing natural teeth.

No Damage

After your natural tooth is extracted, the bone within the jaw will gradually dissolve away. Having dental implants will help support the shape of your face by conserving the bone and avoiding a caved-in appearance from a shrunken jaw.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Look Younger

If you want to enhance your appearance and perfect your smile it is a fact dental implants are second only to natural healthy teeth. Dental implants are the gold standard to replacing missing teeth.

Fix dentures

If you are having troubles with your denture, then dental implants can provide the perfect alternative. Dentures can be fixed to secure implants, so you no longer need to remove them at night. This will eliminate any insecurities of wearing dentures and improving self-confidence.

What are dental implants?

An implant restoration consists of three parts:

The Dental Implant

A dental implant is a sturdy, titanium post that is placed into the jaw and mimics the root structure in a natural tooth. The implants we place are Straumann Implants which are technically and scientifically superior implant systems.

The Abutment

The abutment is a post which connects the dental implant in the jaw to the visible crown.

The Crown

A crown is created in the lab to a high aesthetic quality, all our crowns are made to replicate your natural teeth and are extremely hard wearing. If several teeth are missing or you have larger gaps, other options such as bridges or dentures can be used in conjunction with an implant to replace multiple teeth at once.

When would I need dental implants?

Dental implants are used for functional and aesthetic reasons to replace teeth that have been lost as a result of trauma, knocked out teeth, tooth decay, gum disease. A suitable patient for implants usually has sufficient quality and quantity of bone, they are in good health and maintain a good oral hygiene routine. However, there are additional procedures such as bone grafts that can help to ensure a successful outcome.

What is the procedure?

An initial free consultation with Dr Verani is carried out to outline a full treatment plan, costings and timeframe. A referral will be sent to a local dental practice where they will carry out a CBCT scan. The scan uses the latest technology to assess your bone density and create your individual treatment plan. This scan also helps us to determine the size of the implant and where the implant will be placed in the jaw.

During your placement appointment for dental implants Cheltenham the soft tissues are prepared under local anaesthetic and a hole is drilled into the jawbone in which a titanium dental implant is placed. A healing cap is placed on top of the implant and a temporary appliance is fitted to ensure aesthetic comfortability whilst 2 to 6 months of healing takes place. During this time the bone infuses to the implant ensuring stability when the permanent crown, bridge or denture is fitted.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants can last a lifetime.

Implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth, they act and feel almost feel like a natural tooth however like a natural tooth they can still be damaged by trauma or affected by gum disease and poor oral hygiene. A dental implant is an investment and therefore like any other dental restoration will need to be looked after. To do this we recommend regular visits with our hygienist to help maintain your dental implant.

Single Implant Before and After

Below is a fitting of a single implant and bespoke crown. A single implant was carefully fitted and following the integration of the implant 2 months later, a bespoke crown was constructed and screwed onto the implant. This was completed to replace a resin bonded bridge that kept coming off.
