Dental Implants Wilmslow

The Gold Standard Of Restorative Dentistry

It’s hard to understand how distressing losing a tooth is until it happens to you. Whether you’ve lost one or more teeth to decay, trauma, or disease, the outcome is the same; a mixture of negative feelings and several life-altering health problems.

The loss of prominent teeth can harm your self-esteem. A noticeable gap in your smile may mean you’re tight-lipped in social settings, unable to express happiness for fear of showing your teeth. Photos become staged or unnatural, and it’s hard to let your guard down and show your true smile.

These same confidence issues affect how comfortable you feel laughing and talking, and your voice may also change as your ability to form words adapts.

The meals you once loved become challenging to enjoy. The wide open spaces where missing teeth once stood quickly become no-go areas as you chew uncomfortably from the opposite side of your mouth.

And this is before you consider the health implications.

A gappy smile increases the risk of tooth decay. In addition, the spaces introduce the chance of dental drift, where your remaining teeth move in your jaw. Finally, the absence of tooth roots leads to the deterioration of the jawbone below, which, in turn, changes your facial appearance.

The good news is there are several options to restore your teeth. None, however, are more effective than dental implants. Implant-supported restorations help you regain the function and appearance of your teeth, allowing you to enjoy life again.

At Hale Dental, our fully-equipped digital surgical facilities, coupled with the expertise of our team, make us the place to go for dental implants.

How Dental Implants Work

Think of a dental implant as being a replacement root for your tooth. Just like the roots of your teeth, dental implants support the crown above the surface of your gums by extending deep inside your jaw.

Dental implants are small titanium posts. Lightweight and strong, titanium will fuse with your jawbone to provide exceptional rigidity to support your bite, giving you the confidence to chew everything from crunch raw carrots to chewy steaks.

Once in place, a dental implant will support a crown when replacing a single tooth. Alternatively, strategically positioned implants can work together as the base for multiple prosthetic teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants support replacement teeth in a way that no other restoration can. There are several reasons to choose implants:

Implants offer secure support for lifelike replacement teeth restoring your confidence to smile, laugh, and talk. We’ll carefully match colour, size, and shape so your new teeth blend seamlessly with your natural smile.

Replacing the roots of your missing teeth restores your natural ability to bite and chew.

As the implant anchors into your jaw, it stimulates it. This prevents bone loss and stops you from developing a prematurely aged appearance.

Filling gaps in your smile will stop the neighbouring teeth from sliding out of position and becoming misaligned.

A complete smile makes taking care of your teeth more straightforward, reducing the potential risks of tooth decay and gum disease.

Dental implants can last a lifetime. While replacement crowns may wear down, the titanium implants won’t degrade.

Implants are easy to take care of. They require no additional care than your natural teeth.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Before placing your implants, we’ll need to assess your jaw to determine whether you have adequate bone density to support them. If you’ve been without natural teeth for a while, your jaw bone may have already begun resorption, where it becomes depleted.

In this case, we can restore the loss with a bone graft or sinus lift procedure. This involves grafting new bone tissue to your jaw or sinus to give the implant sufficient anchorage. A bone graft can take several months to heal fully.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Every dental implant procedure follows a thorough consultation and assessment. Once we’re happy that your jaw can support implants, we’ll place it over several carefully planned stages.

We’ll ensure you’re comfortable during every step of your implant placement. We’ll use anaesthetics to help manage pain, and our friendly team will do everything possible to make the whole process anxiety-free.

First, we’ll place the implant. Because implants take time to bind with your jaw firmly, we won’t fit your permanent teeth immediately. Instead, we’ll give you a temporary prosthetic that looks and feels great.

Once we’re happy that your jaw has healed, we’ll place the custom-made restoration, and you can show off your new smile and start enjoying all of your favourite meals again.

Our 5* Reviews

“We have had nothing but good experience with Hale Dental. All the dentists and staff are very supportive, efficient and friendly. Our daughter had to have an extraction to allow further orthodontist work and Richard handled it very smoothly. Our daughter recovered very quickly with very little discomfort. Couldn’t recommend Hale Dental more highly.”

Andy Gee
“Over the course of the previous 3 months, I’ve been undergoing cosmetic treatment at Hale Dental Clinic. I must say it has been the most pleasant time; watching as my uneven, slightly yellowed teeth have transformed in to an unrecognisable, unbowed, white smile that I never thought I’d have. The treatment was performed by the delightful Sophie Parker. Sophie is a master of the field, who has not only provided me with stellar results, but also with a genuinely friendly, amazing, personal service. Thank you so much again Sophie and Hale Dental clinic. If and when I require further treatment, you are the only place on my list.”
Matthew Whiteside
“..Sophie is a lovely, gentle, professional and talented lady, and I am so incredibly pleased with the small (yet amazing) change she’s made to my smile! I keep smiling at myself in the mirror!! 🤣 I feel like I want to return because it was a lovely experience, but I have nothing to return for. You can even watch TV whilst having treatment, there is a TV on the ceiling! I feel this would help to relax nervous patients. I will be referring anyone I know to Sophie, because I’d know that they are in safe hands..”
