Dental Implant Treatment in Manchester
Losing a tooth can not only go on to cause dental issues – but it can also knock your confidence. Dental implants can offer a more permanent solution to this problem than dentures.
Whether your tooth loss is due to gum disease, infection, tooth decay, or even trauma, a single dental implant made using cutting-edge technology by an expert implant dentist will give you a long-term solution that will help you regain your confidence.
Missing teeth can result in your remaining natural teeth shifting and becoming crooked. As well as the cosmetic impact of losing a tooth, there can also be other side effects, including becoming more susceptible to gum disease. Permanent dentures offer a long-term solution to this issue, offering a variety of solutions depending on your personal circumstances.
Smile Chic is a private dental clinic specialising in implant dentistry. We can recommend the best dental implants to replace your missing teeth and give you the confidence to smile. Book your appointment today!
Tooth Implant Services
Many dental implant services are available depending on your needs, and there are several types of dental implants. They offer you an alternative when you don’t want to go down the route of removable dentures.
Implant dentistry involves titanium implants being surgically inserted into your jawbone. Benefits of implant treatment include the longevity of the results and the avoidance of bone damage through fixed bridgework and dentures.
Single Dental Implant
A single dental implant can help replace a missing tooth with something more permanent. You would initially be fitted with a titanium implant screw that acts as an artificial tooth root.
This procedure will be carried out under local anaesthetic and can take between 3 and 6 months to fully heal and provide the necessary support for the dental implant.
We may be able to fit a temporary crown as a replacement tooth until your final implant is fitted. When the jaw is healed, you will choose a titanium, gold, resin, or porcelain implant abutment. This is fixed to the implant and holds the crown securely in place.
We will match the crown to the colour of your existing teeth so that it perfectly blends in with your own teeth.
Multiple Dental Implants
If you have multiple missing teeth, we can offer you full mouth dental implants in much the same way as the single dental implant.
The dental implants function the same way as a single dental implant. If you might be considering a bridge or dentures, contact us at Smile Chic, and we will discuss what other options might be available.
Dental Implant Bridge
A dental implant bridge would be fitted across a gap when several teeth are missing in a row.
We would fit implant screws to hold the crowns, or replacement teeth, in place without impacting the area’s healthy natural teeth.
Dental Implant Dentures
Dental implant dentures give you the confidence you wouldn’t have with regular dentures. You also don’t have to worry about ineffective denture adhesive or receding bone and gums which could result in your dentures falling out or slipping.
In this procedure, we embed several implants into the jaw bone, to lock the denture in place. This option can also be cost-effective in the long term as these types of dentures are easier to maintain than regular ones, meaning fewer trips to the dentist.

Frequently asked questions
Dental Implant FAQs
Who are dental implants suitable for?
Dental implants will suit most people in good health with appropriate gum tissue and bone structures in their jaw to support an implant, although sometimes bone grafting is necessary to support the procedure.
Your dental specialist will go over your medical history to determine your suitability for the procedure.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants can last for many years, but it all depends on how well they are cared for.
As with all dental care, your teeth, gums, and any dental implants will benefit from you practising good oral hygiene habits.
Can I get a dental implant years after a tooth extraction?
Dental implants require good care of your mouth and teeth, but if you look after them well, they can last for a considerable period of time.
Here too, you will see the benefit in your teeth, gums, and any dental implants when you keep good oral hygiene habits.
Is dental implant surgery painful?
As this procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic, you can expect some pain in the days following traditional dental implant surgery. Pain, bruising and swelling tend take a week to subside following the implant surgery.
Some tips for handling the pain during your recovery period include;
- Over-the-counter pain medication
- Take things easy. Try to avoid any action that could dislodge the blood clots that will result in bleeding.
- Follow your dentist’s instructions in regards to dental care.
- Apply ice to any swelling, or gently apply a cooling compress to the outside of your face to help reduce swelling.
- Keep an eye on things to ensure your recovery is going to plan.
- Eat foods such as yoghurt or soup, try to stay away from any meals with extremes in temperature or anything that requires chewing.
What is the best treatment to replace missing teeth?
There are great treatments available according to your needs. If you are looking for a permanent option that does not involve removable replacement teeth, dental implants may be the best choice for you.
Dental implants are not usually available on the NHS, and only those deemed to have a medical need are eligible. So if you are considering this treatment, you should look at private options.
But consider that it will help you feel confident in how you look and feel without worrying about regular visits to the dentists or what you can eat.
Although dental implants may cost more than other treatments, they keep your mouth and jaw healthier in the long term than a traditional removable denture. The longer-term benefits should outweigh any concerns you may have over cost.
