The One Day
Solution to Missing Teeth

As its name suggests, this treatment involves carrying out a dental implant procedure in one day.

Dental implants are a fixed solution to a full arch of missing teeth, improving both function and aesthetics.

This treatment involves constructing a dental crown, fitting it to an artificial tooth root, and placing it in the jawbone.

Benefits of
Dental Implants

Immediate Results

Extracting the damaged or decaying teeth (if necessary) and placing your new smile on the same day allows you to use your teeth and reap your newfound confidence immediately.

Durable

Depending on how well you care for your new smile, dental implants can last for 15-20 years making them the most durable approach to missing teeth.

Easy to Maintain

Requiring the same care as your natural teeth, dental implants are easy to care for. Brush and floss twice daily and maintain regular dental check-ups and routine hygiene appointments.

Prevent Bone Loss

Acting as an artificial root, dental implants will transmit the force of everyday chewing, smiling, and biting into your jawbone. This prevents the bone from deteriorating further and can strengthen it.

This is because your jawbone requires stimulation to stay healthy and strong. However, once you lose a tooth, the root is gone, and pressure and force are no longer transmitted into your jawbone, it will slowly weaken and deteriorate. 

Look & Feel Natural

Designed to appear and function like natural teeth, no one would know you ever had a missing tooth or teeth!

Dental implants are custom-made to match the colour and shape of your natural teeth, making them seamlessly blend in with your existing teeth.

As they are surgically placed into the jawbone, integrating over time, you can eat, talk, and laugh as if they are your very own teeth.

Consultation & Planning

Dental implant treatment requires comprehensive planning, ensuring complete transparency throughout your journey.

Our complimentary consultation allows you to visit Green Square Dental & Implant Centre, meet our team, and discuss the possibility of placing dental implants for you.

If you wish to take the next step, we will book you a comprehensive treatment planning consultation with our Principal Dentist, Duncan Park. During this appointment, Duncan will conduct any necessary X-rays and explain to you in detail all of the options available.

The Procedure

Before we start the procedure, you will be provided with local anaesthetic, and if required, IV sedation, and this will cause you to feel no pain during the procedure and make you feel much calmer. 

If you still have some teeth then these may need to be removed and the implants placed. A temporary bridge can then be provided, which attaches to the implants immediately after they have been placed. The implants need to be left to heal, normally for approximately 3 months before a final bridge is made and your smile completed.

Aftercare

You may experience some minor discomfort, swelling, and bruising, although this shouldn’t last too long. These symptoms can be managed with over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen and paracetamol; however, you will be advised on this at your appointment.

Our practitioner will ensure you have all the information you need to ensure your experience is comfortable and your implants heal properly. We will also book appropriate check-ups with you to ensure your implants are healing properly and that your new teeth are settling in as expected.

Dental Implant FAQs

The implant peg is made from titanium. A material accepted by the body, meaning the implant can effectively act as substitute tooth roots.

The dental prosthesis is a custom-made crown, bridge or denture made from acrylic (plastic), nylon or metal.

Dental implants tend to last between 10-30 years, this will depend on how you look after your dental implants.

After the implant is in place, some pain from swelling and bruising will occur. The healing period is often around a week. 

Temporary crowns/dentures will be placed until the permanent ones are put in 2- 6 months after. This gives the implant time to fuse with the jaw bone and ensures a tight, long-lasting fixture.

It is recommended that smoking is avoided during the healing process to reduce the risk of infection.

The short answer is yes, you can have dental implants after your first trimester. Some Dentists will recommend waiting until after the pregnancy due to the radiation from x-rays.

You will be under local anaesthesia or IV sedation during the procedure, so you shouldn’t feel any pain. However, after the procedure, you may experience some minor discomfort. This can be managed with over-the-counter medications such as paracetamol and ibuprofen.
