Dental Implants in Brighton & Hove

Dental implants are a procedure available at our dental clinic in Hove. Dental implants are the ideal solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. Here at Hove Dental Clinic – we can help you get a confident smile back once again.

Our dental implant clinic can offer you a permanent and aesthetically-pleasing tooth replacement that will make you feel like you have your own tooth back again.

We use advanced surgical techniques, the highest-quality materials and the most appropriate and suited implant system for your situation, which means you get the best compatibility and the highest chance of success. Our dental implants will look natural and are reliable over the long term.

Each small titanium dental implant is an artificial high-tech tooth root, which becomes fully integrated into the jawbone. An implant acts as a stable foundation for single-tooth crowns, bridges or supports and they can be used to replace all of the teeth in one jaw.

Our dental implants feel exactly like your own, and they will look it too. This gives you the confidence to smile more often. Healthy neighbouring teeth are not damaged when we fix bridges in place and tissue or bone structures are maintained, which provides you with excellent facial support. Our dental tooth implants offer a secure solution and are suitable for all ages.

If you are considering dental implants, call or email us now to arrange an implant consultation.

Why Choose Dental Implants in Hove?

Missing teeth: If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the best option for replacement.

Dental Implants have many advantages:

Aesthetics: Aesthetically implants can look like a natural tooth and will sit in the gum in the same way as a natural tooth.

No damage to remaining teeth: Unlike bridges or dentures, dental implants do not require support from other teeth.

Prevent bone loss: Having a dental implant in the bone will stop the bone from shrinking and will maintain facial support and structure.

Increase life of remaining teeth: Dental implants will protect the remaining teeth from excessive force by spreading the chewing load and will also stop teeth migrating, tilting and over-erupting.

Fixed: Dental implants are fixed in your mouth and do not require removal as with dentures.

No more fillings or sensitivity: Dental implants will never need a filling or root canal treatment and will never become sensitive.

Dental Implant Treatments in Brighton

Dental Implants are the gold standard for tooth replacement in circumstances where teeth are missing. Dental Implants can be placed on the same day as tooth removal or a long after the tooth was removed. Dental Implants can be used when just 1 tooth or a number of teeth are missing – or even when there are no teeth at all.

In most cases, the implant placement is extremely quick and practically painless. In fact, most people find implant placement to be a more pleasant procedure than having a tooth removed. If you still feel nervous or apprehensive we can provide you with oral or intravenous sedation so that you can be completely relaxed while you have the implants placed.

We will never leave you with a visible gap and will always make sure that your smile looks great throughout treatment. At the end of the process, you will have a brand new tooth that looks, feels and functions exactly like a natural tooth!

Immediate Tooth Replacement

Do you require new teeth in a day? If you are about to lose a tooth we can arrange to have it removed and the placement of an implant during the same visit so that nobody will ever know what happened. Immediate implant placement is possible if there is no infection and you have sufficient bone.

Single Tooth Replacement

If only one tooth is missing a single dental implant is the best method of tooth replacement. It will not damage adjacent teeth as with a bridge or denture. It will maintain the positions of the remaining teeth by preventing them moving into the space. It will also preserve the bone and help to maintain the gum architecture around your teeth, which will allow for superior aesthetic results compared to other forms of treatment.

Multiple Teeth Replacements

If more than one tooth has been lost it is possible to have two or more implants adjacent to each other. It is also possible to have implants joined together with a bridge, so that you do not need an individual implant per tooth.

This procedure can be much more cost effective than individual implant replacements and as the implants join together as a fixed bridge, less surgery is involved. This means minimal cutting of the gums and quicker healing!

Full Arch Dental Implants and All-on-4 Dental Implants or ‘Same Day Teeth’

If you have lost all your teeth we can provide dental implants to support or anchor a fixed stable permanent aesthetic bridge. The number of dental implants required to support a full arch bridge will depend on the anatomy of the jaw bone, the number of teeth required, the type of bridge you need and the opposing teeth. A full arch of dental implants can be placed when the teeth have been missing for a long time or when the remaining teeth have failed and require removal. In the latter case, it can even be arranged to have the remaining teeth removed and the implants placed on the same day.

Implant Retained Dentures or Dental Implant Removable Bridges

Occasionally for some patients, for example where there is a history of aggressive gum disease, it may be wise to consider a removable bridge supported by dental implants. A removable bridge will be easier to keep clean and also allows for easier future monitoring and maintenance of the implants.

The All-on-4 treatment is a carefully planned procedure that allows only four dental implants to be placed on the same day and for them to be immediately loaded with a full arch bridge or prosthesis allowing for 10, 12 or 14 teeth. Two implants are placed at the front of the mouth and two are placed at an angle slightly further back to allow for anchorage as well as avoiding important structures such as nerves and sinuses. This can be done on both upper and lower jaws and so allows full mouth rehabilitation in a day.

Dental Implants Process

1) Consultation

During the Dental Implant Consultation, the implant surgeon will carry out a thorough examination of your entire mouth including your teeth, jaws, gums, soft tissues and your occlusion – how your teeth bite together. They will then assess the future implant site and take some measurements for the future tooth and the bone currently available. He will take some X-rays of your jaw bone to measure the height of the bone available for implant placement and also to identify the location of important structures, such as nerves and sinuses, within the jaw bone. In some circumstances, it is also necessary to arrange a CBCT (3D) scan if space for the implant is minimal or limited by other structures or it is necessary to assess more accurately the proximity of the structures and remaining bone in relation to the future implant. At this appointment, your surgeon will give you all the options for treatment and the advantages or disadvantages of each and you can have a detailed discussion about your treatment. Plans can also be made for a temporary tooth replacement so that you never have a visible gap through treatment.

2) Placement Surgery

On the day of surgery we can arrange for you to watch a movie or listen to music, or if you prefer we can provide you with oral or intravenous sedation so that you are completely relaxed throughout the surgery. The majority of our patients choose to have treatment without sedation as the implant surgeon is very gentle during and takes great effort to cause minimum disturbance to the surrounding tissues in your mouth, which also helps you to heal much quicker. Dental Implant Placement can either be a 1-step or a 2-step procedure. For the 1-step implant placement, the abutment or healing cap is placed at the same time as the implant. For the 2-step implant placement, the dental implant is placed in the bone and the gum is covered over. The implant is exposed at a later stage and the abutment is attached after healing. The implant is left to integrate with your jaw bone for 2-4 months and a temporary tooth prosthesis can always be provided during that time so that you never have a gap.

3) Abutments or Healing Caps

If a 2-step procedure was carried out, the implant will be exposed after the 3 month period and the healing caps or abutments will be attached.

4) Crowns or Bridges

Impressions are taken for the new implant crown or, in the case of multiple teeth, the implant bridge once the gums have formed and shaped around the healing caps. All crowns and bridges are made at The Wellington Clinic, which guarantees great attention to detail and achieves a truly tooth-like appearance. The finest most aesthetically-pleasing porcelains and ceramics are layered using a number of shades to achieve outstanding results.
