Your Solution To Missing Teeth

At Field House Dental Practice, all of our dentists and clinical staff are registered with the General Dental Council and are qualified in the UK. You can rest assured that we take the time and care every patient deserves.

Are you feeling conscious about the gaps in your smile? We can help you regain your confidence with our dental implant solution.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a highly successful solution to replace one or more missing teeth permanently. A dental implant is made of three parts: the implant, the abutment and the crown. The implant is a titanium screw which is placed into the jawbone. After this is healed, the abutment will be fitted which will hold the crown in place.

Dental implants are designed to look completely natural, meaning it will look no different to the rest of your teeth. Your replacement tooth will be strong and hard wearing, lasting you for a lifetime if you look after it well.

We only use Straumann dental implants which are one of the two leading manufacturers of dental implants and have over 30 years of clinical data backing up their success.

Why should I replace missing teeth?

We always recommend replacing missing teeth for many reasons. Firstly, your jawbone is strengthened by your teeth and when you lose a tooth, your jawbone can start to shrink. Over time, this can result in your face ageing quicker than it would if you had all of your teeth.

Gaps in your teeth can also cause the remaining teeth to shift position. These gaps can also trap food and be difficult to clean, meaning you can be at risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease.

Another important reason for replacing missing teeth is to boost your self-esteem. When you have gaps within your smile, you can often feel the need to cover your mouth when you speak or smile. Dental implants will allow you to eat and smile with confidence.

Would I make a suitable candidate for dental implants?

Generally speaking, if you are missing teeth, you are a candidate for dental implants. However, it is important that you are in good health as some medical diseases and conditions can affect the success rate of the procedure. If you are a smoker, it is strongly recommended that you stop as it can have a huge impact on the healing process and success of the dental implant.

Before going ahead with the procedure, your dentist will discuss your medical history in detail. This will allow them to decide if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

What are the different types of tooth replacement using implants?

There are three different types of dental implant options. A single tooth replacement is for missing single teeth where one implant, abutment and crown is used to replicate the look of a natural tooth.

A fixed multiple tooth replacement is used when you are missing more than one tooth. It is fixed in the same way, using the implant and abutment but instead of a crown, a custom bridge replaces the teeth. This is a great way of replacing teeth because the surrounding teeth are not disturbed.

A removable implant-supported tooth replacement is used if all of your teeth are missing. Two to six implants are used to support a full denture. Unlike regular dentures, the implants give it support and stability, whilst being comfortable. This gives you more confidence whilst wearing a denture and minimises any future loss of the jaw bone.
