Why should I choose dental implants?

Dental implants have been placed by dental professionals for over 40 years. They are widely regarded as the go-to tooth replacement procedure, whether you have one missing tooth or need a completely new smile. Dr Ellie Ledger is one of the region’s leading implantologists, trusted by over 100 referring dentists for the best results and exceptional patient care.

Just like your natural teeth

Dental implants look, feel and work just like your natural teeth. The crowns that make up the replacement teeth are sculpted and manufactured by our award-winning technicians and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

A permanent solution

Dental implants are very durable and long-lasting. They are securely fixed in your mouth, completely stable and require no adjustment after placement. What’s more, they don’t need to be removed at night for cleaning. Looked after properly, dental implants from Arnica can last for the rest of your life.

Help keep your jawbone and gums healthy

Some solutions for tooth loss don’t provide any protection for neighbouring teeth, and some even require them to be modified. Dental implants protect your jawbone and neighbouring teeth by helping maintain bone strength. If your tooth loss is causing collapse, dental implants can also improve the appearance of your face.

A new smile in as little as one day

Procedures are often less invasive than some other complex surgical treatments. For patients who are anxious and even dental-phobic, this is a real benefit. For everyone, it can also mean fewer appointments and less disruption and inconvenience. We can even give you back your smile in one single day, with Teeth in a Day.

Dental implants frequently asked questions FAQs

Here are a selection of popular questions and answers that will provide you with a little more insight into our dental implants procedures here at Arnica in Cheltenham

What are dental implants?
Prosthetic teeth comprising three parts:1) the implant which is like your tooth root and is screwed into, then bonds with, your jaw; 2) the abutment, which joins the implant and the 3) crown – the visible tooth.

How long do single dental implants take?
Treatment time tends to vary between six weeks and six months and in some cases may be quicker, or longer, depending on the density and quality of your jaw bone. For example, low density bone might require bone grafting.

What does the single dental implants procedure involve?
Typically the procedures involve 1) the removal of damaged, misshapen teeth; 2) the placement of the implant with temporary crown or stud; 3) a 3d scan of your teeth and gums to enable the lab technician to design and manufacture the perfect crown; 4) the fitting of the crown to the implant.

What are all-on-4 dental implants?
The revolutionary all-on-4 procedure permanently fixes a bridge comprising a complete row of realistic looking, feeling and functioning teeth to your jaw using only 4 implants.

What does the all-on-4 dental implants procedure involve?
The all-on-4 procedure is also known as teeth in a day as the first stage can be completed in a day with a temporary bridge fitted: 1) loose, damaged or misshapen teeth are removed; 2) 4 implants are inserted into the jaw; 3) a temporary bridge with a ‘low pressure’ denture is attached to allow the implants to fuse with the bone 4) the dental lab designs and manufactures a perfect-fit denture comprising realistic looking, feeling and functioning teeth: the final denture is fitted approximately 6 months later.

Am I suitable for dental implants?
If you are in general good health, have a sufficient bone density (although this can be overcome) and are not a heavy drinker or smoker (as this can affect the implant once it has been placed) then you are very likely suitable for the procedure.

How long will my dental implants last?
They should last many years even your whole life as long as you look after your implant, your natural teeth and gums during the treatment and thereafter. It is recommended that you attend your 6 monthly check-ups so that any issues (if any) can be addressed as soon as possible.

Does dental implants treatment hurt?
Our award-winning patient care is based on minimising anxiety and discomfort using a combination of gentle dentistry, 2-stage local anaesthetic* and if required dental sedation which will put you into a relaxed dream-like state although you’ll still be able to talk to your dentist.  *Two-stage local anaesthetic comprises swabbing the area of the gum to be injected with powerful anaesthetic to minimise the discomfort of the injection.

Is there any pain after treatment?
Following the procedure the local anaesthetic will wear off in several hours and there will be moderate pain for a day or so that can be alleviated by taking paracetamol subject to your dentist’s instructions.
