We’ve heard of them, but what exactly are dental implants?

Let’s keep it simple, dental implants are ‘fake teeth’. It’s not quite what nature gave you, but it’s as good as, and lightyears ahead of the competition when it comes to replacing one. They look and feel like real teeth, are fixed like real teeth, and are easily the most long-lasting in a range of Tooth Replacement Treatments.

Dental implants come in two parts.  The first is a titanium replacement for a tooth root that sits under your gum. On top, a hand-made crown seamlessly connects, made to blend in so even a dentist can’t tell the difference.

We don’t say this lightly: Dental implants will change your life.

But are they for me?

Whether you’re missing a single tooth or don’t have one left in your mouth, the chances are you’re suitable for dental implants in Bournemouth.

If you’re

  • Unable to choose your meals without worrying about what can actually chew
  • Embarrassed by a gap when you smile
  • Have rocking dentures so you can’t eat out
  • Have loose teeth and have been told you will lose them

Then you are suitable. In fact, apart from severe medical conditions, the good news is that Smile Stories will be able to help you.

How is an implant placed?

Precise planning is key. You’ll have an Ultimate 3D Smile Assessment including series of 3D scans and x-rays to assess your bone quality and quantity.

The dental implant is painlessly placed and sealed over for 3-6 months for things to settle in and make itself at home.

A temporary tooth replacement (which can even be supported by the dental implant immediately) means you don’t have to feel self-conscious in the meantime. Finally, our master-ceramists will create a bespoke tooth coloured crown to seamlessly integrate into your smile.

Now this isn’t easy

Matching a front tooth perfectly to its neighbour takes some skill. The colour, the shape, the length, the texture, the shine, the gum line and the spacing between have to be spot on.

At Smile Stories, our aesthetic and implant dentists pride themselves on this level of attention to detail. Using scanning equipment and HD photography, we’ll make sure the results not only equip you functionally but WOW you aesthetically.

Implant Dentures

Rocking dentures stopping you eating comfortably?

Dentures are not fixed in your mouth. They sit on your gums with the hope that suction will keep them down and can rock, drop, move and slide quite easily when you chew.

If you can relate to these denture woes, implant-retained dentures are your solution. Your denture will be clipped onto them, meaning they won’t annoyingly move around. Implant retained dentures can be for some or all of your teeth and are a sure-fire way to chew a good steak again.

Implant Retained Bridges

1 + 1 = 3

No we haven’t gone mad, bear with us.

Imagine a bridge over a river, concrete and steel that you can drive over. It spans the river but it only has two ends that join the land.

An implant bridge in your mouth works exactly the same. If you’re missing several teeth in a row then we can place an implant at both ends of the gap and a bridge between them. So 1+1 may equal 3 teeth, or 4, or even 5, making implant bridges more affordable than you think.

Who may not be suitable for dental implants?

Age isn’t a problem, but the amount and quality of bone will play a factor. Other factors that may increase likelihood of implants not succeeding are excessive smoking and advanced gum disease as you could be more susceptible to losing the implants.   Auto-immune disease and serious other illnesses can also affects healing-rate and fusion of the implant to the bone. Suitability is determined on a case-by-case basis, and our implant dentist will be able to guide you.

Who needs dental implants?

If you’ve lost a single tooth, or have no teeth in your mouth you’re a perfect candidate. Loose dentures, spaces and wobbly teeth may indicate you need dental implants.
