Solutions for Patients with Missing Teeth

If you have one missing tooth, or even several missing teeth, there are a few different tooth replacement options available. At our practice we offer bridges and dentures — both are lovely options — however, dental implants are a treatment for patients seeking a more permanent solution.

What are Dental Implants, and Who Needs Them?

Patients often ask us about dental implants, as these are a terrific way to make a smile whole again. Those who want to replace their missing teeth can often benefit from dental implant treatment.

Dental implants are a replacement for natural tooth roots. Made of strong, titanium metal, implants resemble screw-like posts, which are surgically placed in the jawbone. As the jaw heals, the bone fuses to the implant, holding it strongly in place. The implant attaches to a metal abutment piece, which is the part that holds an artificial tooth in place.

Our warm and friendly team is happy to discuss any of your questions about the procedure, and help determine if you are a good candidate for dental implant treatment. As this oral surgery, patients need to have healthy gums, sufficient bone to anchor the implants, and they must have a fully grown jawbone — which is to say this is an adult-only treatment.

The Perks of Dental Implants

Though patients have options when it comes to tooth replacement, dental implants have certain advantages. Beyond filling the gap from a missing tooth, dental implants:

  • Look and feel natural with the rest of your smile
  • Prevent bone loss in an area that would otherwise deteriorate without a tooth
  • Stabilise adjacent teeth, ensuring they do not migrate out of place
  • Help improve speech with better enunciation
  • Do not slip, like other tooth replacement treatments
  • Are made of metal, and therefore do not decay like natural teeth
  • Can also be used to secure dentures
  • Do not require dental adhesives or removal
  • And more

If you have been living with a missing tooth for a while, now is the time to come by our friendly practice for a consultation. We can discuss in detail how dental implants can improve your smile, enhance your confidence, and give you more benefits than you likely expect.

Stunning Dental Implants in Prestwick

Patients who qualify for dental implant surgery are often referred to a specialist — sometimes at a different practice. At Netherfield, our all-inclusive service ensures you can get dental implants right here — under the same roof as your ongoing dental care.

The way we do dentistry, our patients receive care from top performers in the industry and leading edge dental technology.

Exceptional Dental Professionals

Our in-house Implantologist, Hannah Steven, does precision work with a compassionate approach and calm demeanour. She, alongside our first-class team of dental professionals, will ensure you remain comfortable throughout your dental implant procedure.

High-Tech Dentistry

We use a full digital process, using technology to make the dental implant treatment as pleasant and efficient as possible. Here are just some of the ways dental tech helps us make tooth implant procedures as pleasant as possible:

  • Dental implant patients receive world renowned Straumann implants, which are made from high-performance Roxolid® or zirconia, offering the flexibility to address each patient’s specific needs.
  • Instead of using traditional dental putty to make an impression of your mouth, our dental practitioners create a 3-D representation using the scanning wand. This device enables us to see the details of your mouth and help plan where your implants will go.
  • A CT scan shows us a detailed image of your oral cavity, which enables us to determine jaw bone depth and suitability for dental implants This scan also allows us to determine if a patient needs a bone graft prior to placing their dental implants. Though we outsource these scans, they come back quickly, and allow us to accurately and safely place the implant.

Comfort Comes First for Our Dental Implant Patients

Oral surgery may feel intimidating for some patients, but we are here for you. Our team is very understanding, and we know that some nervous patients need to summon courage to even walk through the doors of a dental practice. Please let us know how you are feeling before your dental implant treatment, so we can instil you with confidence and comfort.

We find that having a supportive team makes a world of difference in dental care. Every Netherfield team member understands the importance of communication and the role it plays in patient comfort. We always maintain transparency and invite your questions and concerns, so we may inform and alleviate anything weighing on your mind regarding your dental treatment.

In addition to our gentle approach, we want you to be able to relax in the dental chair. We like to keep a peaceful and welcoming environment, giving you a little music in the background. However, if you want a different genre of music, prefer to listen to a podcast, or want to watch a show you have downloaded, please bring your headphones along with your device.

Financing Options for Tooth Implants

The cost of dental implants in the UK can seem expensive if you pay a lump sum upfront. Unfortunately, larger dental expenses that come with tooth replacement options can create an obstacle for patients, causing them to put themselves in a stressful financial situation or delay treatment indefinitely.

At Netherfield Dental Practice, we want our patients to receive the care they need in a timely manner. We are in the business of creating beautiful smiles and happy patients, and we believe that comes from making dental care more accessible through financing. With our finance options, we can start your treatment today, and you can pay it off through instalments.
