Dental Implants: A Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth in Crowborough

Missing teeth can have a significant impact on our daily lives, affecting our ability to eat, speak, and smile comfortably. Whether due to injury, disease, or decay, missing teeth can lead to decreased confidence and self-esteem, as well as physical discomfort and oral health problems.

If you’re looking for a permanent solution to replace missing teeth, dental implants may be the right choice for you. Dental implants offer a stable base for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

Crowborough Gentle Dental, located in East Sussex, offers top-quality dental implant services, including free implant consultation and 0% financing options. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of dental implants and what you can expect during the dental implant process.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a stable base for replacement teeth. Implants are made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time, the implant fuses with the jawbone to create a strong, stable base for the replacement tooth.

Once the implant has fully integrated with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the implant and a custom-made replacement tooth is placed on top. The replacement tooth can be a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on the number of teeth being replaced.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

The dental implant process typically involves several stages, including consultation, treatment planning, implant placement, abutment placement, and tooth placement.

During the consultation, your dentist will examine your mouth, take X-rays, and discuss your health history to determine if dental implants are the right choice for you. If so, they will create a treatment plan that outlines the number of implants needed, the type of replacement teeth, and the timeline for the procedure.

Next, the implants are placed into the jawbone using a surgical procedure. After placement, the implants will need several months to fully integrate with the jawbone, during which time you may need to wear a temporary denture.

Once the implants have fully integrated, the abutment is placed, and the replacement tooth is attached. The replacement tooth is custom-made to match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless, natural look.

Benefits of Dental Implants Over Other Tooth Replacement Options

There are several benefits to choosing dental implants over other tooth replacement options, such as bridges or dentures. Some of these benefits include:

Permanence: Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth, offering a stable base for replacement teeth that will last for many years with proper care. Unlike bridges or dentures, which need to be replaced periodically, dental implants are designed to last a lifetime.

Comfort: Dental implants are designed to feel just like natural teeth, providing a comfortable and stable base for replacement teeth. Unlike dentures, which can slip and shift, dental implants are securely anchored into the jawbone, ensuring a comfortable, stable fit.

Improved Oral Health: Dental implants do not require the surrounding healthy teeth to be altered or damaged, as is often the case with bridges. This helps to maintain the overall health of your natural teeth.

Enhanced Aesthetics: Dental implants are designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. The replacement tooth is custom-made to match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless, natural appearance.

What to Expect During the Dental Implant Process

The dental implant process typically takes several months to complete, from consultation to final tooth placement. During this time, you’ll need to attend several appointments with your dentist and follow their instructions for aftercare and maintenance.

After the implants have been placed, you’ll need to care for them as you would your natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups. You may experience some mild discomfort, swelling, or bruising during the healing process, but these symptoms should subside within a few days.

It’s important to choose a qualified and experienced dental professional to perform your dental implant procedure, as success rates and long-term outcomes are highly dependent on the skill and experience of your dentist.

Dental implants are a highly effective solution for missing teeth, offering a permanent, comfortable, and natural-looking replacement. Whether you’re looking to replace one tooth or several, dental implants can help you regain your confidence and improve your oral health.

Amazing place, fantastic staff, receptionist lovely & really made us feel welcome. Free Consultation with Shiv was superb, free 3D teeth scan (Itero scan) 3 pairs of Viera retainers. Attention to detail is incredible with the latest equipment & technology, you know exactly what you’re getting. I had been researching a lot before I made my decision for my daughter to get her teeth straightened and a great experience so far. My daughter was feeling tense & anxious, but the dentist made her feel comfortable, safe & at ease. The name says it all! My daughter cannot wait for the Invisalign treatment to start and to see the results. Couldn't recommend high enough.

I visited Crowborough Gentle Dental as an emergency following a nasty incident where an old composite cracked off my front tooth. I was mortified and very upset. I was visiting family so came as an unregistered patient. The team were able to fit me in that very day. I saw dentist Hazel and dental nurse Paige. They were kind and understanding and were able to fix my tooth at the appointment. I cannot express how much I appreciated the care they showed me and the work they did was fantastic, to the point that the relief I felt at having my dental issue resolved so quickly brought me to tears! On top of this I feel that the cost of treatment was very reasonable considering the circumstances and level of care. I live 4 hours away but am still considering booking in with them to have any further work done! I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you are looking for a great dentist in the area. please do pay them a visit!

After not visiting a dentist for several years, due to an immense fear, I lost half a tooth and was in need of urgent treatment. I contacted Gentle Dental online Sunday evening and was seen as an emergency the next day. I was completely put at my ease by Julie the receptionist right through to the dentist. I was then booked in for a tooth extraction and given the option of sedation. The whole process was fully explained and I was treated with kindness and understanding every step of the way. There has been daily communication and I would like to thank everyone for putting me at my ease and treating me with such understanding, kindness and professionalism. Sally

My second visit to CGD and again a great experience. Have never said that having been to a dentist.Hazel is brilliant technically and explains exactly what is happening and what needs to be done. The added bonus is that she is very ably assisted by Estela, a truly professional nurse.They really are a great team.Thank you so much for your work so far. Looking forward to seeing you both in October when I know the receptionists, Julie and Alison, will also make me feel at ease and warmly welcomed.

I’m a nervous patient and after delaying the need of getting two implants for several years, I finally gained the will to get them done with Crowborough Gentle Dental. From start to finish they built my confidence and made me feel relaxed about it when I really didn’t think I could be.Shri as the dentist is an absolute pro and I love the way he explained how technology helps so much. Shiva the manager is a superstar too! I just think they are both great at what they do and I’m very happy to have found them.Really recommend!!

The staff here are kind, quick and professional. I’m a visitor to Crowborough and managed to lose a crown. I got an appointment for the next day with Hazel who supplied me with an emergency filling with zero pain. The dental nurse and receptionist were lovely too. Recommend!

As a very nervous and apprehensive patient I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Crowborough Gentle Dental. I have recently needed a tooth extraction which was handled with the utmost care, support and sensitivity. All the staff are incredibly kind and lovely and I couldn’t thank them enough for looking after me.

Having been in a lot of pain Saturday and Sunday, I messaged Gentle Dental at 14.06 on Sunday with the hope of being seen early Monday. Shiva messaged me back immediately and I was seen by Shri at 14.30 the same day!I was given Antibiotics and a follow up appointment for the Tuesday.Truly, a great experience from start to finish.

I have not been to the dentist for many years as i am not afraid to admit and a bit of a coward as a result of many bad experiences in the past.I can honestly say that the treatment i received from both Haris (Dentist) & Paige (very capable assistant) was fantastic.A large filling and two broken teeth fixed later i am a very satisfied customer and will be returning on a regular basis.I cannot praise the experience enough and would encourage anyone with a dentist phobia to pick up the phone and book an appointment.Thank you very much Crowborough Gentle Dental

I highly recommend Shri & Gentle Dental Crowborough. My gums/bones had really deteriorated through anti-cancer treatments. I dreaded my first visit for fear of losing teeth but I needn’t have! The team were just brilliant. I had the laser treatment over 3 sessions which was surprisingly painless. Now 3 weeks later & I am simply astonished at the results. My gums are healthy & tight again & my teeth feel much stronger already. I’m so happy with the results. Thank you!

I never thought I would look forward to going to the dentist until I came across Gentle Dental. All of the staff are so warm and welcoming and are brilliant at creating an inviting atmosphere in what can be quite a sterile environment. The dentist Shri is an absolute asset to the practice. His kind demeanour immediately puts you at ease and he is the literal embodiment of the 'gentle dentist'. I had my first ever filling last week and was so nervous about having an injection in my mouth but he was calm and patient and to be honest - I didn't even feel it! Great practice, thank you.

Just seen Haris at Gentle Dental - I needed advice about medication I may need to take alongside cancer treatment that could affect my teeth and jaw. After a thorough dental examination he reassured me all was well and the medication would be beneficial to my overall health. Great to be able to access help and advice like this!Thanks so muchTracey Moule

Haris and Paige were very kind to my elderly mother when I took her for her first visit since she moved into the area. Haris was helpful and informative issue with her dentures. Receptionist made sure a space was available for me to park.

What a fantastic dentist!The staff are always so lovely and friendly. I particularly had a great experience today...I have massive anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist and since recently moving to the area, I needed a filling. I have a big phobia of needles, however, the dentist Shri and dental nurse Paige were absolutely fabulous! They were so supportive and understanding, they were so easy to talk to and kept me distracted while having the injection. Shri then kept me updated throughout the entire filling and was very positive about everything. I feel my fear has definitely gone down after this visit. I couldn't recommend more!
