Dental Implants

Do you have a missing tooth and wish to smile and eat with more confidence?

Dental Implants are a modern, popular method to replace lost teeth. We can place a titanium implant securely into the bone in place of the tooth root. We may then attach a crown, denture or bridge onto the top of  the implant.

Traditional methods for replacing teeth include dentures and bridgework both of which have their own drawbacks. Dentures have the potential to be loose and may cause embarrassment, bridgework can be destructive to adjacent teeth. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants  will provide a fixed solution which preserves surrounding bone.

What does dental Implant treatment involve?

We place dental implants under a local anaesthetic, the whole procedure taking a reasonably short amount of time. It is necessary to wait several weeks for the implant to integrate into the bone before a crown, bridge or denture can be placed over the top.

We place dental implants which are made of titanium or a titanium-zirconium alloy, both of which are bio compatible and bond well with bone.

Who makes the dental implants?

Here at Ainsty Dental Practice we use the Straumann System® and Neodent System® both popular and clinically proven choices. Straumann is a Swiss company who have been making Dental Implants since 1974 and are one of the largest companies providing implants worldwide.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental Implants have a success rate of in excess of 95% over a ten year period. Good oral hygiene and refraining from smoking will increase the longevity of Dental Implants.

How much do dental implants cost?

Dental Implants cost from £2250 for a single implant restored with a crown. Dental Implant consultations are £70 and we can also offer 0% finance (Terms and conditions apply).

A fractured crowned tooth required removal and the patient did not wish to wear a denture or damage adjacent teeth with bridge work. We placed a dental implant to achieve a great aesthetic outcome.

Mr L, York

“I had thought about having implant’s for a while, and after my consultation with Steve at Ainsty Dental who understood exactly what I needed and required, I was convinced it was the right decision for me. Steve explained the whole procedure and also presented me with written details explaining the treatment and the cost. The relaxed atmosphere, professionalism, and cleanliness, combined with modern equipment and surrounding’s reassured me that I had come to the right place. My new teeth have given me confidence to smile again and enable me to eat normally. I would not hesitate in recommending Ainsty Dental to anyone who is considering implants.”
