About dental implants

Missing teeth can be a problem for your dental health and your own personal well-being. Dental implants can be used in a variety of situations to help replace missing teeth...


Dental implants at Bristol Dental Specialists

Our team of specialists will be able to help replace your missing teeth to restore your smile and improve your confidence, however, your teeth came to be missing.

At Bristol Dental Specialists we use the Straumann dental implant system. This system has a long-standing, proven track record over the past 50 years in the field of biomechanical engineering. Dental implants used at the moment are made of an extremely biocompatible material called Titanium. When inserted into an accurately created hole in the jawbone a strong union formed between the titanium and one’s native bone. This begins at about two weeks following insertion and continues to increase in strength until about six weeks when the screw can be used to support one or more teeth.


A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, a small ‘post’ usually made from titanium. There are many reasons for losing a tooth, whether it be through decay or trauma the dental implant will replace the root of your own tooth when it needs to be removed.

Whether through accident or decay, there's no doubt that losing teeth can have an emotional impact, especially if they are at the front of your mouth. If you have a single missing tooth a single dental implant could be the best solution for you.


Multiple dental implants

More than one missing tooth can result in a large gap in your mouth, not only will this affect the appearance of your smile it can also cause difficulty when eating or speaking.

We can restore your smile by placing multiple dental implants and attaching a combination of cosmetic crowns or a cosmetic bridge to the implants. The number of dental implants required depends on a number of factors, at the consultation we will discuss the options available to you.


Dental implants for all your teeth

A restored tooth should look natural and blend in with the rest of your teeth and will be designed to match in colour, size and shape exactly. The crown will also function like a normal tooth, allowing you to eat, bite and chew with ease.
