What are dental implants?
If you have a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants may be recommended instead of having conventional bridges or dentures.
A titanium post is placed in the jaw bone to support a replacement tooth. This acts like the root of a natural tooth. Implants can also be used to support fixed bridges or to stabilise dentures.
The implant is usually left for some months to allow the bone to form a strong bond to the implant. Then, once the implant has integrated with the bone, an artificial tooth is attached to it to give a natural look. The artificial tooth is custom made to ensure the ideal colour, shape and size.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
- Restore the mouth as closely as possible to its natural state
- Increase comfort by eliminating loose fitting dentures
- Avoid filing down healthy neighbouring teeth (as with a conventional bridge)
- Preserve facial structure by virtually stopping deterioration of the jaw
- Make a more natural smile improving appearance and self confidence
Are dental implants right for me?

How can I get more information about dental implants?
The Association of Dental Implantology (UK) provides a lot more information on implants and the following link is to the section of their site dedicated to providing answers for patients, however if you would prefer to speak to us directly to have your questions answered then please feel free to do so (Association of Dental Implantology).
The implants we currently use are from OSSTEM. OSSTEM is one of the biggest dental implants manufacturers worldwide with lots of literature to support successful use of their products based on years of extensive research.
Single tooth replacement
A crown mounted on a dental implant is the best choice if you have a tooth missing in the upper or lower jaw. The need to replace a missing tooth could be the result of an accident or because there was no predisposition for a tooth at birth.
For further information please visit the following link: Replacing one tooth
Multiple teeth replacement
If you have lost several teeth there are two solutions: separate crowns on dental implants or a bridge attached to several dental implants.
For further information please visit the following link: Replacing several teeth
Will the tooth be safe after treatment?
Yes. However, it is better to restore the tooth with a crown to provide extra support and strength to the tooth.
All teeth replacement
If all of your teeth are missing in the upper or lower jaw, dental implants are the best solution. You can choose a full bridge that is attached to several dental implants. Another option is a removable prosthesis that is attached via anchoring devices to two or more dental implants. The prosthesis remains securely in place in your mouth – yet it is easy to remove.
For further information please visit the following link: Replacing all teeth with a fixed prosthesis, Replacing all teeth with a removable prosthesis.

“I have been coming to Brighton Dental Clinic to see Dr Lynsey Crothers for a number of years. I have always found her to be calm, kind, patient, thorough and truthful. I recently had some restorative/cosmetic work and I am over the moon with it and people have commented on my teeth/smile. She is a perfectionist and very skilled - I can't believe the difference. I would 100% recommend. The whole team are wonderful.”

Simply The Best
“I have been attending this clinic since the 80's. I suffer (or did) from dentophobia. I'm more or less coming to the end of my treatment as I'm now everyone's 'gum chum' (big full denture smile) and it's given me cause to reflect on the treatment I've had over the decades mainly Feroz Jafferji in the early days and latterly Mick Fillery. Not only the dental treatment but for me the tailormade treatment considering my fear and also physical problems which all needed to be catered for before treatment even started. I felt soothed on a psychological level but a physical one too and the gentle reassuring and expert treatment then given has been second to none and if I had all my teeth again (my fault they all had to go over the years to the tooth fairy due to my neglect) I wouldn't hesitate in seeing Mick and if I knew then what I know now I would never have had a fear of going. Thanks too to all the nurses and receptionists always so helpful pleasant and kind. I guess when my treatment, for a probably final denture, is complete, I will leave with a designer smile of relief but a little cavity in my heart that can never be expertly filled.”
