Dental Implants are the most long lasting way of replacing missing teeth.  Not only do they fill in gaps from missing teeth, but they can also help support fixed bridges and dentures.

They come in two parts.  First the implant.  This is placed in the jawbone and acts like the root of a tooth.  Secondly the replacement crown part of the tooth, which is fixed onto the implant.

Dental Implant Procedure

Dental Implant treatment has three stages, all of which are carried out at Passage House Dental Care. (If a CT scan is needed, the scan will be performed at another facility)

First Stage

Careful and complete planning of each Dental Implant.

Second Stage

Local anesthetic is used to numb the area before precise space is made within your bone where the implant is to be placed.

The implant is screwed in to place within this space and the gum is stitched so that it heals around the implant.

Under the gum, the bone then grows round the implant to hold it firm. This can take several weeks and needs good oral care.

Third Stage

Dr Hall will assess the status of the first stage to ensure healing and bone growth is taking place as it should.

When the implant has ‘embedded’ the replacement tooth (crown part of the tooth) is then attached to the implant. This tooth is matched to the current shade of your teeth and will look and function as if it is your natural tooth.

Would implants be right for me?

First, you should decide whether implants are right for you by having a consultation and discussion with Dr Hall at Passage House Dental Care. Dr Hall will discuss the options openly and answer any questions you may have, including the costs. We will even work out a treatment schedule for you so you know what is happening and when. We also have interest free finance schemes available, and we can discuss these with you at this stage if you feel they are appropriate for your circumstances.

Which Dentist will I have?

Rest assured you are in good hands. Your consultation will be with Dr Brad Hall, and your treatment will always be with Dr Hall.  This is because Dr Hall has the most experience, knowledge and passion for this kind of treatment and is changing lives of patients (as quoted by one patient!) every week through dental implants.

Dr Hall, has completed many post graduate surgical and restorative courses in the field of dental implants and such is his interest he is currently completing his final stage for an MSc in Dental Implantology at the University of Bristol.
