What are Dental Implants?

Losing teeth can be devastating, greatly affecting eating, speaking, and self-esteem. Dental implants can significantly help to improve your quality of life, self-confidence and help you feel happy about smiling again.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is surgically placed into your gum and jaw providing a strong foundation for replacement teeth. Dental implants function just as well as natural teeth allowing you to enjoy the foods you love or can secure loose-fitting dentures to give you better stability. Dental implants are a great alternative to a bridge as it restores gaps without the reduction of the structure of the adjacent healthy teeth.

About Dental Implants

Are implants safe and how long do they last?

Implants are a safe, well-established treatment and as long as they are well looked after with regular hygiene visits, they will last for many years.

Are implants suitable for everyone?

Most patients are suitable to have dental implants placed. Certain health problems and lifestyle factors such as smoking can affect the success of implants but does not exclude a person automatically.

Do implants hurt?

Here at Sunshine Dental, we aim to deliver pain-free dentistry as far as possible. Placing an implant is similar to taking a tooth out and whilst using local anaesthetic at the time of treatment to ensure you feel no pain you may feel slight discomfort for a day or so after treatment.

Are implants expensive?

The price for a single implant starts from £3,000. We are aware that implants can be offered at a cheaper price especially from practices abroad but there can be many pitfalls in seeking cheaper treatments resulting in expensive remedial work. You need to be aware of subtle differences that can affect the price such as the brand used, the techniques used and the type of artificial tooth used.

Whilst it may be true that the upfront costs may be higher, compared to the life span of dentures and bridges which become damaged or worn over a shorter period of time, In the long term Implants can be a long term cost-effective option.

We provide the highest quality care delivered by an experienced surgeon, who has placed thousands of implants and who uses top quality materials.

What are implant retained dentures?

Dentures can become uncomfortable, tiring and may rock leaving you unable to eat the foods you enjoy.
Traditional dentures can cover a large area of your mouth which can affect your speech and taste. Implant retained dentures give you a second chance of having a mouth full of stable, permanent teeth. The dentures “snap” securely into place so patients no longer need to use denture adhesives increasing your biting force enabling you to enjoy a bigger variety of foods.

If you are experiencing problems with your dentures and would like to know more about denture aftercare, call us on 0115 973 3591 to find out more.

We ensure all our patients have all of the information they need to make an informed choice about treatments and we will talk through all of your options during an in-depth consultation.

My experience with Sunshine Dental has been wonderful. They’re always really cooperative, and are really patient with me. My dental hygiene has always been something I’ve struggled with, but I have never felt judged at all by any of the team as I have at other practices before. On top of having an ongoing dentist phobia (which has improved thanks to Sunshine), I’m also autistic and very sensitive to sound and light in particular. The team at Sunshine Dental have always been really patient with me when I’ve visited, letting me have breaks so I don’t get overstimulated. Last time I went, I was expecting to have a load of cavities (shockingly, I didn’t - guess I just have strong teeth and have been lucky) but Vishal was really caring and explained everything so that nothing was a surprise to me. Although I haven’t been for an appointment for a while due to being away at university, I’m always happy with the service when I do go. And although I still have a way to go with my phobia and anxiety, I’m definitely a lot better considering it took a while to even get me through the door when I first came! These days I find that it’s a lot less scary than I think, and my dental hygiene is slowly improving.
