Dental Implant Treatment Made Easy

When you make an appointment to meet our implant dentist at Gentle Dental Practice in Crowborough, East Sussex, you will be taken through a step-by-step process where you will get a better understanding of how the dental implant procedure is conducted.

During your first consultation with us, our dental implant specialist will proceed with an in-depth examination to determine how the treatment should be done. Rest assured that when you are with us, we only have your best interest in mind and we will conduct the surgery with absolute care so that you have a pain-free dental implant experience.

A dental implant is a great permanent solution for missing teeth. A titanium rod is inserted into the jaw bone with a replacement tooth or teeth mounted on top. After an initial consultation, we will advise the best treatment for you and advise payment options.

Sometimes there is a need for additional or alternative procedures to support your implant. Bone grafting and gum grafting can be used to achieve the best results in some circumstances.

FAQs

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is placed into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone over the span of a few months. The dental implant acts as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth.

Ultimately, this “artificial tooth root” serves to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Most people who are in good general health and have enough bone in their jaw to support an implant can be candidates for dental implants. It’s important that you have healthy gums and are committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Certain chronic diseases, heavy smoking, or alcohol abuse may compromise the success of the implant and need to be evaluated on an individual basis.

Are dental implants painful?

Most people who have received dental implants say that there is very little discomfort involved in the procedure. Local anesthesia can be used during the surgery, and most patients report that implants involve less pain than a tooth extraction. After the dental implant, mild soreness can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications, such as Tylenol or ibuprofen.

How successful are dental implants?

The success rate of dental implants varies, depending on where in the jaw the implants are placed but, in general, dental implants have a success rate of up to 95%. With proper care (see Q6), implants can last a lifetime.

How do you care for dental implants?

Dental implants require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent infections around the implant.

Can dental implants fail? What are the risks?

Dental implants can fail for a variety of reasons, but the most common reasons are poor oral hygiene and a lack of regular follow-up care with your dentist.

Other risks include infection, implant rejection, or mechanical problems with the implant itself. Patients with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or osteoporosis, may have a higher risk of complications.

How long does the dental implant process take?

The process of getting a dental implant can vary. The typical process includes several steps — the initial consultation, the placement of the implant, the bone healing and integration period (osseointegration), and the placement of the prosthetic tooth or teeth.

This process can take anywhere from a few months to over a year, depending on individual circumstances, such as the need for bone grafting or the healing time required.

What are the alternatives to dental implants?

Alternatives to dental implants include dentures (removable false teeth) and bridges (a set of crowns for teeth on either side of the gap, with a false tooth or teeth between them).

Each option has its pros and cons, and your dentist can help you decide which is best for you based on your specific needs and situation.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants can vary widely depending on several factors, including the number of teeth being replaced and the need for any additional procedures such as extra bone graft, temporary crown etc.

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.

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!

Where do I start, I have never been happy with my teeth so I thought my only option was to go abroad and get my teeth done but then I had my invisalign consultation at gentle dental and they said what they could do. I was still very skeptical, but my wife wanted me to give it ago before going abroad. My treatment plan was 6 months, which I have just completed, and I must say I am very happy with the final picture. So please come and have a consultation and see what they can do for you before going abroad. I just want to say a big thanks to the whole team at gentle dental. I am always very helpful and professional.

I have been going to Gentle Dental for a while now and I’m an extremely nervous patient with complex health problems and a wheelchair user. The receptionists and the Dentists are amazing. They are friendly and go out of their way to help you.I saw Shri today and he and his assistant were brilliant. I could stay in my wheelchair as have trouble transferring to the chair. All my questions and concerns were answered in great detail. I was treated with respect as always and although I still get extremely nervous before my appointments they soon make me feel more relaxed. I highly recommend Gentle Dental definitely a 5***** practice.

I honestly can't rate gentle dental enough! I've always suffered with extreme anxiety when it comes to dentists, this being due to a bad experience with a dentist many years ago. I then got recommended gentle dental, and since I've been with them it has truly been a life changer! I truly have lost my fear and I don't have to be put to sleep for anything at all anymore. I can't stop smiling and I couldn't be more happier. Every single member of staff is so polite, happy and they are always smiling. I love the positive and happy atmosphere every time I walk in. I honestly can't thank them enough for what they have done for me so far, and for being so truly amazing and supportive and getting me out of my fear. I have and will be continuing to recommend gentle dental to everyone.

I had a recent filling elsewhere and they cracked my tooth. Gentle dental were fabulous in fitting me in quick and tooth the whole tooth out for me. Hardly any pain and no side effects after.This was in September 2023.Like most people, I avoid the dentist as I’m scared. My daughter had recently had treatment from Shri and I thought I’d book in for a check up. Shri and Paige were lovely. He checked all my mouth and teeth, answered my questions and gave me a good report, just the hygienist would be good. I walked to the receptionists Julie and Alison commenting that Shri was nice! Little did I know he was behind me!! Well, that made me hot and red!!! In all honesty, Gentle Dentle have helped me and my daughter out in emergencies and the check up today was pain free. You get text and calls as reminders which isn’t a bad thing if, like my family, we have lots of appointments.Hygienist is in May so watch out for my review!!
