Replace Missing Teeth, Loose Dentures With Dental Implants And Smile Again!
Ingleby House Dental Practice offers a permanent replacement for loose and missing teeth and can be a viable alternative to wearing dentures.
Did you know that dental implants are a safe, long-term and pain-free solution to missing teeth and wobbly dentures?
Dental implants can bring back the smile to people who have lost teeth through decay, accidents, gum disease or excessive wear and tear. They are a permanent and fixed solution for missing teeth, providing patients with the nearest possible alternative to their natural dentition. Dental implants have a very high success rate (92% of implants still function well after 10 years), and they look and feel just like natural teeth.

How Do Dental Implants Work?
The tooth’s root is replaced with a screw-like device integrated into the jaw bone, leaving you with a stable foundation to build upon. Although this may sound drastic, treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic so you will not feel any pain.
What Dental Implant Treatments Do We Offer?
After a comprehensive consultation, we will advise you as to your most appropriate treatment option for long-term success and reliability. We currently offer:
- Single Tooth Dental Implants with a Bespoke Crown included
- Multiple dental implants
- All-on-Four/All-on-Six teeth-in-a-day dental implants
- Implant retained dentures
Single Tooth Implants replace a single missing tooth. A single tooth implant is an excellent option for patients who do not wish to have a bridge or denture to replace a missing tooth. Implants are also a good investment option. Should adjacent teeth be lost in the future, they can be added to the implant without further implant surgery.
“Multiple dental implants” use titanium screws that act like artificial tooth roots to replace several adjacent missing teeth. The benefit of numerous tooth implants is that they replace teeth without requiring support from adjacent natural teeth, as seen with bridgework.
“All-on-Four/All-on-Six” are used for replacing several or all teeth in an arch. In most cases, treatment is completed on the same day, commonly referred to as teeth-in-a-day and ready for immediate use. The All-on-Four/All-on-Six treatment advantages include less need for bone grafting, reduced healing time, reduced cost, and increased success rate for complete arch treatment.
“Implant Retained Dentures” are an excellent option for those already used to dentures but long for more secure stability. Implant retained dentures use implants that attach to a denture much like a pop button which holds dentures in place during day-to-day activities. These are especially effective to lower dentures which have reduced suction retention.

Anyone who can undertake any kind of dental procedure can have a dental implant. In order to assess your suitability for any dental implant(s) treatment the first thing your implants dentist will do is assess your jawbone and its viability to accept an implant using x-rays. In the event that there is not enough bone available for an implant, your dentist will explore further options with you such as bone grafts.
Assuming that you don’t require a bone augmentation prior to fitting an implant then the next step is to secure the titanium rod down into the jawbone. Surgery can take between 1-2 hours per implant and when finished our implant dentist will fit a temporary crown. For teeth-in-a-day treatment it usually takes a similar time to implant the four implants that hold the teeth in place.
Implants are placed under local anaesthetic, which numbs the mouth to prevent pain. You’ll feel some discomfort once the anaesthetic has worn off, which could last for a few days, and you may notice bruising and swelling which could last for around one week. This is normal and any discomfort can be managed using paracetamol or ibuprofen.
