Dental Implants

For dental implants in Glasgow, make an appointment with our dental implant expert. Dental implants are titanium posts which are surgically attached to the jaw bones. They provide support for crowns, dentures and bridges to be fitted. Long-lasting and more effective than conventional bridges, our practice uses dental implants supplied by our respected dental lab.

People lose teeth all the time. You can lose teeth through trauma – for instance when teeth are knocked out playing sport or in an accident - or due to decay, gum disease or old age. Dental implants are an increasingly popular option to replace missing teeth. The Park Practice provides dental implants which offer a longer-term solution than bridges and crowns.

The dental implant process

During your regular appointments at The Park Practice our dentists will monitor the quality of your teeth. We will be able to assess whether you are a candidate for dental implants based on a number of factors. These include the healthiness of your gums and bones and the amount of decay your teeth have suffered.

Step 1

At your initial consultation, we’ll discuss all of the possible alternatives and assess the feasibility of providing implant treatment.

Step 2

Preliminary models of your teeth will be prepared and we’ll give you a plan of your treatment and associated fees.

Step 3

We’ll book you in for an appointment for x-rays and, if required, a CT scan. This information helps us to assess your bone density and whether you may need additional treatment.

Step 4

Your implants will be put in place under sterile conditions in the dental surgery. Implant placement is carried out under a local anaesthetic. The time this takes depends on the number of implants you are having but should take no longer than 2 hours.

Step 5

The healing period - many patients can heal very quickly, often within days of surgery. In most cases it is often suggested that a period of three months or more should be allowed for the implant to fully integrate and heal. During this time, you can wear a simple adhesive bridge to cover the implants.

Step 6

Once your titanium posts have healed and started to integrate we’ll discuss your options. Restorative options include dental crowns, dentures and bridges. Crowns are made to match the colour of your natural teeth and can be made from either porcelain or ceramic. Bridges are either single or multiple artificial teeth which are secured by clipping onto the natural teeth on either side. Dentures can also be clipped onto your dental implants.

Step 7

Once you have your beautiful new teeth you need to maintain them. We’ll give you tips on how to clean thoroughly around your implants. Book in for regular appointments so that we can check the health of your soft tissue, bone levels and integrity of your restoration.
