Replace missing teeth and restore your smile with award-winning Norfolk dentists

My front tooth was removed by the visiting surgeon at Riverside Dental and temporary replacement fitted. He was great, I trusted him he did not disappoint. I have now finished my treatment and am extremely pleased with the outcome. Trust plays a huge part in patient dentist relations so I am very happy with my experience.

the process

The process to get dental implants usually takes place over several different appointments. These could look something like this:


The consultation

This is where your Riverside Dental implant dentist will assess the health and condition of your teeth and mouth and determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.


Planning visit

Images of your teeth and mouth are needed to check the quality of your jawbone and assess whether there is any outstanding dental treatment, such as cavity fillings, that needs to be carried out before you start treatment. Sometimes this takes place at the consultation, sometimes at a secondary visit. This appointment will also be used to plan out your dental implant treatment.


Post placement

The next visit will be used to place the implant post into the jawbone. This is done surgically, and you will be given local anesthetic to ensure that you aren’t in any discomfort. An incision is made into the gum to access the bone, and then a hole is drilled within which the post will sit. Once in place, your implant dentist will close the gums over the incision and leave the area to heal while osseointegration takes place. In the meantime, your bespoke crowns will be created in the perfect shape, size and colour to replace your missing teeth.


Crown placement

Once your dentist has confirmed that your implant posts are securely anchored to the jaw, your crowns can be attached to them using special connectors called abutments. The fit of your crowns will be checked before they are secured in place. Again, the gum will need to be opened to reveal the post for the connectors to be attached, and local anesthetic will be used. Once your crowns are in place, your treatment will be complete.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a unique and modern way of replacing teeth that have fallen out or been extracted. Unlike other tooth replacement solutions, dental implants are focused on a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. This post acts as an anchor for the restoration, making it more stable, secure and long-lasting than alternative techniques. The visible part of the tooth – a custom-designed crown – is then connected to the post, completing the restoration. 

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants rely on a process called osseointegration. This is a biological process where the jawbone that is damaged to place the implant posts heals, closing around the implant to anchor it permanently into the mouth. If osseointegration doesn’t happen, the implant could fail. However, for this process to be successful, patients must have enough healthy bone in their jaw. 

What if I don’t have enough healthy bone to support implants?

The density and quality of your jawbone will be assessed at your consultation. If your dental implant dentist decides that you don’t have sufficient bone in your jaw, you may need to have a procedure called bone grafting before you can get dental implants. This is where additional bone is grafted onto the jaw to improve its strength and density. 

How many dental implants can I have?

Every patient is different and dental implants can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. If you have several missing teeth in a row, you may be recommended to have an implant-supported bridge or denture. This is where a custom-designed denture is created and supported on implant posts rather than sitting directly onto the gum tissue. The more teeth you are having replaced, the most implant posts you will need to support them. For example, dentures usually require four implants to secure them. 

How long does it take to get dental implants?

The entire dental implant process usually takes between four and six months, and this is because it takes time for the implants to be encased in the jawbone. In terms of the actual surgery, it takes around 60 minutes to place one implant. Depending on how many implants you are having, it may be necessary to have your surgery spread over several appointments. 

Are dental implants painful?

Your dental implant procedure will perform your dental implant treatment using local anesthetic, meaning that you won’t feel any discomfort during the surgery itself. However, it is normal to experience some swelling and soreness at the site of the surgery for several days following implant placement. Full post-operative care will be provided by your implant dentist and will be explained before the surgery. You will be able to take some over the counter pain relief to help you to control your discomfort.

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care and attention, including daily brushing and flossing to prevent gum disease, dental implants typically last longer than any other dental restoration. Your dentist will give you specific advice for taking care of your dental implants. 

What are the benefits of dental implants?

There are many benefits of dental implants, including:

  • Budget for routine preventive care and stay on track with your oral health

  • Easy to set up plan with no pre-assessment necessary
