Cutting Edge Technology
Dentures can be uncomfortable, irritating and embarrassing. Many people struggle to chew comfortably and even say that their self-confidence has been undermined by wearing a denture. With advances in implant dentistry, we now have many innovative techniques for denture stabilisation.
From the cost-effective use of mini-implants to stabilise an existing denture, to the complete replacement of a denture anchored with fixed implants, dental implants can transform your comfort, self-esteem and self-confidence.
Dental Implant Treatment
Traditional bridge treatments require dentists to file down the neighboring healthy teeth, in order to attach the bridge in place. Dental implant technology alleviates the need to damage these healthy teeth, instead anchoring your bridge to implants, bonded with your jaw.
The implant itself is a titanium screw placed into the jaw, to replace an original root. It’s a straightforward process which your dentist can completed under local anaesthetic. The implant will need three to six months to heal and bond with your jaw bone to provide a solid support for your replacement tooth.
Temporary replacement teeth are usually fitted at the same time as your implant placement, which will stay in place until the final restoration appointment.
Once your jaw has healed, an abutment will be fixed to the implant to hold your replacement teeth (crown or bridge) in place. Abutments are produced in titanium, gold or porcelain, and can come as a standard fit or crafted specifically for you. These options offer a range of aesthetics results, depending on your requirements.
One Step Procedure
The dental implant is placed and then a temporary abutment is attached. A temporary crown is put in place, followed by a maximum healing period of three months for the lower jaw, and six months for the upper jaw.
Two Step Procedure
The dental implant is inserted and then covered by the gum, and left to heal. The abutment is attached at a later date. A temporary crown is put in place, followed by a maximum healing period of three months for the lower jaw, and six months for the upper jaw.
Fitting & re-examination
When the crown is ready, your dentist simply attaches it to the dental implant. This is usually followed by a few follow-up visits to check functionality. It is virtually impossible to see the difference between the existing teeth and the new

Smile without limits!
I have a real fear of dentists and have a long history of gum disease in my upper gums. I was faced with the decision do I carry on my life with a plate or look to have implants fitted. It was a life changing moment when I agreed for Persheng to commence work on fitting implants to my upper jaw. I felt completely safe in Persheng’s hands as she carried out the whole procedure. There were a number of appointments and at each one Persheng told me what to expect and what the next steps were. As we neared the end of the procedure I was impressed how Persheng linked in with the technician who was there too at the first fitting and also the final one. Both were so professional and kept me at ease. I knew I’d made the right decision. On the day of fitting it went like a dream. I’m so pleased and I know the saying life changing is easy to say but really it has been for me. I can’t thank Persheng enough for the work she completed on my implants. I can now smile with confidence. Thank you.

Why Consider Dental Implants
What are dental implants?
What are the benefits – why should I have dental implants?
What are the risks?
There is a small risk that the implants may not fuse properly with the bone in your mouth and so cannot be used. The risk is higher in certain individuals, particularly those who smoke, and you will be advised if we think the risk of failure is higher than normal in your case.
Implant placement involves surgery in your mouth and so may be followed by some soreness, swelling, bleeding or bruising. Any discomfort is usually controlled with simple painkillers and should only last a few days.
It is possible for parts of your implants to loosen or wear out with time. This can lead to failure of the implant, or the restoration on the implant, if not treated quickly. You will be responsible for the long term care of your implants and should arrange regular review appointments.
What happens after the procedure?
If you have had the procedure under local anaesthesia you will be able to leave the surgery as soon as the procedure has been completed. You should be able to eat normally after the surgery but a soft diet may be advised by your surgeon. You should avoid alcohol for 24 hours. Implant patients are advised to quit smoking before starting treatment and to remain a nonsmoker in the long-term.
