The best permanent replacement for missing teeth in Hull

Dental Implants in Hull

Are you having a tooth extracted and wondering what how to replace it? Are you tired of fussing with dentures and looking for a more natural, permanent solution? Whether you’re missing one tooth or have no teeth at all, you can transform the way your mouth looks and feels with dental implants. Dental implants are essentially permanent replacements for missing teeth, anchored into your jawbone, that look, act and feel just like your own teeth. Implants will allow you to smile, speak and eat like you used to – restoring your confidence and quality of life.

Computer-guided implants

Here at 543, we’re always keen to adopt new dental technologies that improve your treatment experience and outcome. This is especially relevant with dental implants, as our ability to provide computer-guided implants means more accurate placement of the implant, faster healing and shorter treatment times. In some cases, the replacement teeth can even be placed immediately, at the same time as the implant itself, meaning you could potentially walk out with your new smile on the same day.

Precision, from planning to placement

The procedure begins with a digital scan of your teeth and jaw bone, which enables us to view, in detail, hard and soft tissues and understand the strength and density of your jaw bone – a vital factor when planning your dental implants. Using this information, we can better plan precisely where the implant should be placed, and can then use the software to create a physical surgical guide (like a transparent gum shield) that has a hole in the exact place where the implant will go. This level of precise, computer-guided technique means a more comfortable, less-invasive experience for you and higher long-term success rates for your investment.

FAQs

What is a dental implant?

An dental implant is an artificial tooth root. It’s made up of a small titanium screw that’s placed in the upper or lower jawbone where your natural teeth are missing. The implant ‘integrates’ with the surrounding bone to give a firm foundation for replacing individual or several teeth, or to anchor dentures.

How many dental implants will I need?

This depends on your particular case. You may need to replace each individual tooth or several teeth supporting a bridge. Replacing an entire arch would typically require around four implants.

What does the procedure involve?

After assessment and treatment planning, your implant placement surgery will be scheduled. The treatment is carried out under a local anaesthetic, with sedation if required. Following placement of the implant into the jaw bone, you may be able to have the restoration (replacement teeth) placed immediately. In some cases, however, it may be necessary to wait a few months until the implant has fully integrated with the surrounding bone to make sure it’s completely stable. Most patients can return to work within one or two days of implant surgery.

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.
