Secure and Long-Lasting Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

Replace your missing teeth, restore your confidence and rebuild your quality of life.

Missing teeth can profoundly impact your quality of life, from the way you eat to the confidence with which you smile. If you face the prospect of missing teeth – or you already wear dentures – dental implants offer a solution that can restore your smile for life, with no more compromise. Because implants are an investment in your long-term dental health, we offer 0% finance to help spread the cost of replacing your missing teeth.

Bone grafting for advanced bone loss

Dental implants are a great option to replace missing teeth; however, for the successful placement of dental implants, you need to have sufficient bone in the jaws for the implants to be placed.

At your FREE implant consultation, our highly trained dental teams will take an x-ray of the mouth to determine your bone levels. If these levels are low, a bone graft may be required before the placement of dental implants.

The bone grafting procedure is carried out under IV sedation for maximum comfort. The dentist will fix the additional bone to the affected site using bone that has been taken from another location within your mouth or from artificial bone. The treated site is sealed and, following a short healing period, you should then be able to move forward with the implant procedure.

Sinus Lifts

If you are thinking about having dental implants, you may require a sinus lift to create enough space for the successful placement of the implants. This procedure will be necessary if:

  • There is not enough room above the premolar and molar due to the structure of the head
  • If you’ve had missing teeth for an extended period and this has caused bone loss
  • If periodontal disease has caused loss of bone
  • If ageing has caused the sinuses to become larger, reducing the available space for implant placement

Most implant cases will not require sinus lift treatment, but your Ascent Dental Care dentist will advise if this procedure is necessary for you at your FREE consultation.

CT Scans before dental implant treatment

In some cases, you may be advised that you require a CT scan before proceeding with the dental implant procedure. This is so the dentist can safely and accurately plan the best placement of the implants, ensuring optimal results.

CT scans allow the dentist to:

  • Identify vital structures, e.g. sinuses, root tips, nerves.
  • Examine bone quality and volume.
  • Allow a replica virtual placement of an implant into a 3D mock-up of your jaw.

Taking a CT scan is very quick and will only take roughly 5-10 minutes. Subject to availability, should you require a CT scan, we will arrange this on your behalf as soon as possible.

Sedation for nervous dental implant patients

If you’re nervous about having implant surgery, we offer IV sedation to help you through the procedure. Before surgery, we carefully and gently administer the IV sedation so you feel relaxed and unaware of what is going on. We will then begin to start the treatment once you have entered this unaware state. We will monitor your breathing and pulse throughout the treatment to ensure that you are always safe and comfortable.

You will struggle to remember any of the procedure, and it will have been as if you were asleep the entire time! Because of this, you will require a chaperon to take you home safely after your appointment.

What are dental implants and what are they made from?

Dental implants look, feel and function just like healthy, beautiful, natural teeth. Implants do the work of a tooth root, integrating with your jawbone to create a strong foundation for a replacement tooth.

Here at Ascent Dental Care, we offer both titanium and ceramic implant options. Titanium dental implants are made from metal and are the most common type of implant due to their durability and ability to integrate well with the surrounding bone. A titanium implant consists of three parts, including the post, the abutment and the restoration.

Ceramic implants, on the other hand, are made from a single component and are recommended to patients who have metal sensitivities. Although they are more costly than the titanium alternative, ceramic implants offer a more natural appearance.

Six great reasons to choose dental implants:

Improve appearance

Fill in the gaps and bring back the smile you once had.

Enjoy the foods you love

Taste and chew foods, such as apples, steak, and corn on the cob, with confidence.

Aesthetically pleasing

Look, feel and function like your own teeth.

Save tooth and bone structure

Prevent bone shrinkage and facial sagging caused by missing teeth and preserve adjacent teeth.

Feel confident

Eat, speak and laugh again without discomfort or embarrassment.

Durable and long-lasting

Enjoy a strong and long-term replacement for missing teeth.

We are committed to providing the best implants for you.

  • In-depth Information on dental implants that is easy to understand and well explained
  • A suitability assessment on your current dental health (checking your teeth & gums)
  • X-rays to check the bone quality/density (very important to the success of implants)
  • If required, a CT scan will need to be arranged so we can use a virtual 3D image of your jaw to plan the placement of implants
  • Clearly written treatment plan to follow after the consultation, which will list all of the discussed proposed treatments, including the length of time and costs (no hidden fees)
  • Affordable payment options to help break up the overall cost of treatment – 0% & low-interest finance (subject to status,) making dental implants an accessible and affordable option.

It’s all possible with Dental Implants

Replace one or several teeth with dental implants

Replacing one or more missing teeth with dental implants is a straightforward procedure that usually involves minimal invasion or discomfort – especially as patients of Ascent Dental Care have the option of choosing IV sedation. Implant surgery is so precise, patients generally recover very quickly and can return to work within a couple of days.

While a single implant supports a single tooth restoration, for multiple missing teeth, we can use several implants to support a fixed bridge. After the implant procedure, you will be given a temporary crown or bridge to wear while the implant integrates with your jawbone – a process that takes around 10 weeks. Then you’ll be able to return to have your final restoration fitted.

Secure your dentures

Dentures are a traditional solution for replacing missing teeth, but if they don’t fit perfectly, they can slip or click when you eat or speak. If you already wear dentures or are facing the prospect of losing all your teeth, implant-supported dentures can provide an excellent solution.

Implant-supported dentures can secure your prosthetic teeth permanently with as few as two dental implants. You can still remove your denture for cleaning, but you won’t need to use adhesives to keep it in place, can chew and eat as normal, and won’t experience the discomfort traditional dentures can cause.

Prepare your jawbone for implants

For some patients, treatment is required in order to prepare and optimise the jawbone before dental implants can be placed. If you are thinking about having implants, you may need a sinus lift to create enough space for the successful placement of the implants, or a bone graft, if you don’t have enough bone to support the implants.

We can get your mouth in top condition for implants with these procedures at Ascent Dental Care so that you can keep all of your tooth replacement options open.

Discover the innovation of our full-arch solutions

If you’ve been told you don’t have enough bone to support traditional dental implants, our full-arch solutions offer an alternative solution, anchoring a full upper and lower set of teeth with just four implants. And the best bit is we can provide you with replacement teeth in a day, so you really can have a Same Day Smile! Treatment can be performed in a single session at the dentist, with no long wait for your new smile.

For edentulous patients (patients with no teeth) and limited bone availability, we also offer Straumann Pro Arch, a seamless and safe treatment option for fixed full-arch restorations that reduces patient discomfort to a minimum.

Ideal for patients with:

  • Loose or uncomfortable dentures
  • Bridge or crown work that is failing
  • Receding gums or severe bone loss
