Clinical research shows that good dental health also plays a major role in your overall medical health.
A great smile and nice teeth not only boost your self-esteem and confidence but also allow you to eat all the types of food our bodies need to stay healthy.
There are both fixed and moveable options to help restore your dental health; the aesthetic appearance of your new teeth, the time taken and costs involved are outlined below. However, if you would prefer to discuss your treatment face-to-face with one of our dentists, why not book a video call?
Bridges are used where it is not possible or necessary to use an implant.
Bridges are usually an option to consider if it’s not practical or necessary to use an implant. They can still restore a natural-looking smile, boost confidence and self-esteem and improve the patient’s clarity of speech and ability to chew.
Adjacent teeth are usually filed first before the bridge is applied over the top and then sealed with dental cement.
An implant is used as a replacement for the missing root of the tooth and is inserted into the jawbone to act as a support for a crown; this gives the appearance of a tooth being present.
Dental implants are beneficial for many reasons; not only do they restore your smile, they can help improve speech and oral hygiene as well as making it easier to chew, boosting the patient’s confidence.
Conventional implants which are usually used when the patient has just one missing tooth.
Partial implants, which are usually considered when the patient is missing more than one tooth.
Immediate implants, also known as “teeth in a day”, which can be considered if the patient has sufficient
primary bone contact and primary stability; the required quantity and quality of bone at the implant site; and the dentist can be confident of the correct pace of bone formation around the implant.
A Natural Look & Longer Usage
Partial dentures can be fitted using metal hooks if required, offering the patient a natural smile. Modern dentures are both tougher and designed to last longer.
Just like natural teeth, dentures require routine care and maintenance. However, modern technology means they can be made from bacteria-resistant material, which reduces bacterial adhesion and reduces the risk of complications sometimes associated with free monomers.
Aesthetics & Function
Modern dentures can restore your smile and be an effective replacement for natural teeth, helping the patient enjoy not only all types of food but also clarity of speech.

Frequently Asked Questions
"How soon can we fix an implant?"
Patients – and, increasingly, dentists - are demanding shorter treatment times and it’s becoming common to see advertisements for "teeth in a day". In the case of patients who may not have lost a tooth, the idea of being without a "permanent" solution can be psychologically challenging - but don’t worry. You will never leave the Holident Dental Hospital without fully-functioning temporary teeth.
"Waiting three months or more? You're kidding me, right Doc?"
Certainly, shortened treatment times can sound attractive but, as dental professionals, if we’re considering osseointegrated implants as the best treatment to replace a single missing tooth, we need a good understanding of all the factors which may influence just how soon we can insert that implant. We will only ever offer treatment times which deliver the very best possible outcome for our patients.
"How long does a dental bridge last?"
It depends on the type of bridge, the quality of the procedure and how your body reacts and adapts to the replacements. Generally speaking, a dental bridge can last from five to 15 years.
"Bridges or Implants?"
In the case of a missing tooth, dental implants enhance appearance and functionality and, in our view, implants are always that one step ahead of a bridge. However, factors influencing which procedure is best for the patient include the amount of remaining bone, the condition of the gum tissue and the level of lip and cheek support. Whatever we recommend, our patients can rest assured our dentists will only suggest the very best solution for them.
"Is it painful?"
Most of our patients find implant surgery very easy to tolerate. Bone does not have the ability to cause pain since there are no nerves. Discomfort is minimal and procedures are carried out under local anesthetic.
"How long do implants last?"
With proper dental care and good oral hygiene, a dental implant can actually last a lifetime.
"How can a missing tooth effect my appearance?"
As well as the gap in your smile, a missing tooth means losing stimulation of the bone when chewing. This not only has a detrimental effect on your dental health but missing teeth can also result in a loss of bone density which causes facial disfigurement and can make you appear older than you are.
What treatment methods are used the replace missing teeth?
Gingival problems, untreated tooth decay, root canal treatments, traumatized teeth and some chronic medical conditions can result in tooth loss. Prosthetic treatments available to replace them fall into two categories: mobile and fixed.
The latter includes an implant-supported option. However, total prostheses – better known as palate prostheses – can also be applied, depending on the condition of the patient's alveolar crest. While a total prosthesis applied to the upper jaw produces a vacuum from the palate dome, a tongue-based prosthesis applied on the lower jaw can cause problems.
In cases where the patient has not already suffered a significant bone loss, an implant may be required. This may mean a minimum of two implants being inserted on the lower and upper jaw, although there may be more if the issues are more severe. Metal-supported or zirconium-supported porcelain bridges are applied over the implant. It usually takes a couple of months for osteointegration of the implants to take place, with an additional porcelain layer added after that.
When is implant treatment appropriate?
An implant can usually be offered to anyone with missing teeth aged 18 or over. Women's jaw development happens more quickly than men’s but bone resorption is a risk for anyone who puts off a tooth extraction for a long time.
The condition of the bone at an implant location is important but patients with chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease or who take regular medication should also consult their doctor first.
What are “immediate load” implants?
In dentistry, inserting implants after an extraction is known as an “immediate load”. There are certain criteria which have to be met to avoid the risk of infection and there needs to be sufficient bone in the area of the extraction. However, immediate implants are generally faster and more comfortable as long as the procedure is performed by a specialist dental surgeon.
Is implant treatment painful?
We lose teeth for lots of reasons but modern techniques allow us to replace them with titanium-based dental pieces inserted into the jawbone, which are known as implants.
The amazing results restore all the aesthetic benefits of the missing teeth, including proper chewing function and the restoration of the patient’s smile.
Before an implant is installed, bone measurements and positioning are assessed using 3D technology, which can be applied whether a single tooth of multiple teeth are being replaced. Often, only local anesthetic is necessary to ensure the procedure is painless, with many of our patients indicating they felt much less discomfort than they were anticipating. It’s important to remember there are no nerves in bone so, although inserting a screw may sound daunting, it’s not as traumatic as many expect. However, for those patients who suffer from acute anxiety, we can offer a general anesthetic which will be performed by an expert member of our team. If the bone condition is sufficient and there is no infection around the loose tooth, the application of an implant can take just ten to 15 minutes. However, the speed of recovery is dependent on the patient following the dentist’s instructions and recommendations diligently.
