Dental implants

Dental implants are a safe and efficient way to replace a missing tooth. At Queensway Dental, we have a range of dental implants for patients to choose from. What’s more, they are a perfect fit because they’re made right here in our dental laboratory.

Types of dental implants

Single implants

If you are missing a single tooth, we can replace this with a single dental implant and a crown over the top. The single dental implant is made up of a titanium metal rod which is inserted into the jawbone. Once this is fitted and the crown is placed over the top, most people won’t be able to tell the difference between your dental implant and other natural teeth. This is a relatively simple procedure and won’t affect the teeth around the implant. 

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are used to secure dentures. At Queensway Dental we use the 3M™ Mini Dental Implant (MDI) Denture Stabilization System. Mini titanium alloy dental implants are inserted into your jawbone and act as an anchor to stabilise your lower denture. If your denture(s) is very old and worn, you may need to purchase a new one. At your free consultation, we can assess the quality of your existing denture(s) and explain how they will work with mini dental implants. 

All-on-4 ™ dental implants

This revolutionary technique can replace a full arch of permanent teeth with just four implants. This is achieved using a non-complex, bone grafting procedure. Two of the four implants are placed at an angle where the bridge is supported by the implants at the front of the mouth. This proves incredibly effective because it is here that the jaw bone is denser and stronger. 

The other two implants are placed at the back of the mouth at 30 and 45 degree angles. This ensures maximum stability. The dental bridge, which is a crown that supports an arch of replacement teeth, is then attached to the socket of the implants. Bridges can be attached on the same day that the implants are placed and the patients can leave the practice with a full set of natural looking teeth. 

All-on-4 dental implants are ideal for patients with loose dentures, failing crown or bridge work, or severe bone loss or gum recession. Furthermore, the implants can be fitted in a day.

All-on-4

I first came across Queensway Dental Clinic online and as a nervous patient with a lot of dental problems, I was impressed by the treatments on offer and the easy travelling distance from my home. I decided to request a free consultation and this proved to be one of the

best decisions I have had to make. From first meeting I was helped to feel at ease and from that initial consultation I knew I was happy to go ahead with treatment. Before treatment I had lost a number of my natural teeth and had partial dentures which were ill fitting and uncomfortable. My remaining teeth were stained from years of smoking and I experienced recurring gum problems. At Queensway my treatment involved replacing all my upper teeth with All-on-4™ dental implants and while I have retained some of my lower natural teeth, some have also been replaced with implants. The dental surgery was carried out using conscious sedation and I can honestly say it was a painless and anxiety free experience. Following the procedure, I have continued to receive treatment and advice from dental hygiene staff and I am overjoyed with the results. I cannot believe how it has improved my smile and my confidence. The service at Queensway is brilliant with a team who really seem to care about the patients. In particular, I need to mention my dentist and hygienist but also the dental nurses and the friendly receptionists, all who play a part in delivering the overall service. As a result of my experience, I will continue to receive my future dental care at Queensway and I have no hesitation in recommending the clinic to others.
