Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for missing teeth. They are made from titanium and are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone over time to provide a secure and stable foundation for replacement teeth.
At Weybridge Dental Care, our experienced implant dentists can provide you with a thorough consultation to determine if dental implants are the right solution for you. We use Straumann implants, which are a trusted and high-quality brand in the field of implant dentistry.
Dental implants can provide numerous benefits, including the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. They are also a long-lasting and permanent solution for missing teeth, making them a popular choice among patients.

What does treatment involve?
An initial examination and consultation with a dental professional is essential to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for dental implant treatment. This typically involves taking impressions of your teeth and conducting a thorough assessment of your dental health.
In some cases, a CT scan and computerized 3D assessment of the jaws may be required to facilitate treatment planning and ensure a predictable result.
The dental implant procedure itself is usually completed under local anesthesia, and in some cases, sedation may also be used to help patients relax during the procedure. The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, and over time, the bone will fuse with the implant to create a strong and stable foundation for the replacement tooth.
In some cases, additional procedures such as gum and bone augmentation may be necessary to provide additional support for the implant. Your dental professional will discuss the specific details of your treatment plan with you to ensure you have a clear understanding of the procedure and what to expect.
Am I a suitable case?
Dental implant treatment is a viable option for most patients who have lost one or more teeth. The success of the treatment largely depends on the quality and quantity of bone in your jaw, as the implant needs a solid foundation to be securely anchored.
If there is not enough bone in your jaw to support an implant, bone grafting may be necessary to build up the bone before the implant can be placed. In some cases, other factors such as gum disease or medical conditions may also impact your suitability for dental implant treatment.
During your consultation, your dental professional will thoroughly examine your mouth and assess your suitability for treatment. They will also discuss any concerns you may have and answer any questions you may have about the procedure, the recovery process, and aftercare. By the end of the consultation, you should have a clear understanding of whether dental implants are the right option for you and what to expect throughout the treatment process.
