Single to Full Mouth Implants
Ideally, dental implants are not a type of treatment that should be performed with the thought of replacement in the future.
Since, it is a surgical procedure that is invasive and is carried out within the jaw bone, we tend to treatment plan with the intention of it lasting a lifetime through careful attention.
However, the top part of the connection can easily be replaced should there be chips in it or a change of colour is required.
But the actual dental implant within the bone was not intended to be replaced.
However, there may be several situations that may accelerate the deterioration and thus require the dental implant to be replaced sooner rather than later. Find out more.
The primary reason would be poor oral hygiene and inadequate hygiene visits after placement thus leading to infection.
Infected dental implants are like gum disease that can detach the gum and bone from the implant thus causing it to loosen up. Contact us today.
When this happens the implant can no longer support the teeth and there is a risk of further infection setting in.
In this situation the implant dentist may advise to “extract” the dental implant depending on how advanced the deterioration is.
If a new implant is required your dentist will look into your options at that point depending upon how you heal, the success of any gum treatment and the foundation of your mouth.
We are proud to have the latest technology and equipment at our practice
Replacing an implant: we can analyse what caused the implant to fail when bonding with the jaw, and offer various treatments options in replacing it.
Ways of increasing the likelihood of dental implants to last a lifetime:
- Proper Treatment Planning using 3D digital analysis, bite analysis, foundational assessment, radiographs (X-rays) and a CT scanner. Correct planning in advance and assessment of any risk factors beforehand is the key to a successful treatment outcome. Our experienced implant dentists have the highest protocols that they follow to ensure that everything has been thoroughly investigated and planned. Also, that you have been provided with the most suitable and appropriate treatment choices that ensure a successful long-term solution. See options.
- Use of CT Guided Digital Surgery. This is when a digital scanner is used in combination with a CT scanner to create a 3D guide plane that facilitates the accurate positioning of the implant in the jawbone. This ensures accuracy and facilitated detailed planning.
- Proper healing time to ensure osseointegration of the bone to the implant. Our implant dentists wait to see digital and radiographic evidence to make sure that there is a proper connection between the interface of the titanium dental implant and the patient’s bone tissue. Only then do we proceed with creating a permanent porcelain tooth on top of the implant. Traditional dental implants are also not load bearing in these early days soon after surgery, giving proper opportunity of the body to heal.
- Evaluating any risk factors beforehand to make sure that we give the dental implant treatment every opportunity to work and be effective. Also if there are any predisposing factors such as smoking that we address these things before considering implant treatment.
- Proper advise and instructions are necessary to maintain the health of your mouth and dental implants. Regular appointment with the hygienist and dentist can ensure that your treatment is as successful as possible.
If your implant has failed, it can cause inflammation and sometimes discomfort.

I have been visiting Perfect Smile for couple years for on going treatment including implants and Veneers. I developed an abscess over Christmas Holiday with a fever where I passed out on my kitchen floor. I did email Gurs not expecting him to reply within an hour or so (especially it being the festive season) Gurs suggested I should get to the hospital to get antibiotics and emergency dentist next day. Gurs kept in touch daily to check on my welfare. A week later I was well enough to travel from Norfolk to Perfect Smile. The following week Negan did root canal. The team are first class, who make you welcome and always asking if I would like a drink. The treatment has cost me thousands. Money well spent!! I now have The Perfect Smile.

My dental plan included quite intrusive treatment, all of which was carried out with concern for my comfort. Time was taken to insure that I was included in every decision to be made.
Everyone was very friendly and made me feel 'at home'. Thanks to the dentists at this amazing practice!!
