At Brookfield Dental, we never underestimate the emotional impact of losing teeth. Whether you've lost a single tooth or several, your confidence can take a real knock and the effects can be devastating. Using advanced dental implant technology, we can replace missing teeth, rejuvenate and enhance the aesthetics of your smile, and prevent bone deterioration.
Dental implants provide a long-lasting solution to missing teeth and they feel and work just like a real tooth.
A dental implant is a small screw made from surgical grade titanium that replaces the root portion of a missing tooth. It can be placed in either the upper or lower jaw, which in time will fuse to your jawbone. Following this phase, a tooth crown is attached to your implant, depending on your requirements.
For those missing one tooth, a crown will be created to perfectly match your existing teeth, which is then fixed to the dental implant. If you have a full set of dentures, a denture can be integrated with two dental implants. Alternatively, a bridge can be designed for four or six dental implants - you don’t need one implant for every missing tooth you have.

Including x-rays, a ct scan, a digital scan of your mouth and clinical photographs. This step is crucial to planning your implant treatment. Once we gather this information we are able to plan precisely the implant care that best suits you, taking into consideration your bone and clinical needs.
We will go over your bespoke treatment plan with you, discussing the benefits of treatment. It is important that you have as much time as you need to discuss and understand what is involved and our aim is to ensure that all your questions are answered prior to commencing any treatment.
Our implant surgeon will apply a local anaesthetic and place the titanium screw in the planned location of the missing tooth. This procedure takes between one and two hours and is relatively painless due to the local anaesthetic. You may experience a small amount of discomfort following the placement of the implant but this will subside and healing will occur relatively quickly.
Once your implant integrates with the bone, we are able to restore the implant. After taking a digital scan of the position of the implants, the final ‘teeth’ can be individually designed, manufactured and attached to the implant. Once in place, they will look, feel and function as a natural tooth.
Following the completion of treatment, you can explore our many membership plans to maintain and look after your smile for the long run. Dr Priyesh Patel and our hygiene team will help guide you on how best to care for your mouth following implant treatment.

For routine cases, from the time of the implant placement to the time that the tooth or teeth are placed can take between three and four months. Complex cases can sometimes take longer.
Once implants have been placed, they can be used as supports for an individual tooth or multiple teeth. They can also be used to fix a denture in place with small stud like fastenings. Their use depends entirely upon your needs. Few problems cannot be fixed, but each case is assessed and carefully planned on its own merits. Our experienced surgeons will help guide you through the process, discussing advantages and disadvantages for every treatment.
Dental implants have very few restrictions and age is no barrier. It is true that it is best not to delay too long after teeth have been removed as there is a natural process of bone shrinkage following tooth removal. This can make it more difficult to place an implant, but that is not a barrier to implant placement. If you have a gap or dentures, an implant or implants could be a very good choice for you.
We will arrange a CT scan for you in the early planning stages which will indicate precisely how much bone is available. If we find you lack bone then we will carry out bone grafting procedures at the same time or before implant placement.
Gums and bone are the foundation for implant treatment. Ensuring these are healthy prior to your implant placement is important for your treatment to be successful. Smokers have a high risk of implants failing and therefore implant treatment is not recommended for those that are actively smoking.
