Dental Implant Treatment



Did you know that you can get the closest thing to a real tooth or permanent teeth in just one day? With no hospital appointments, no general anaesthesia, and a 95% success rate, dental implants could be the solution that you have been looking for. With new advances in dentistry, the dental implant procedure, including multiple implants, can be placed with teeth (crowns) or with a dental bridge in just one day.


Unless you have a missing tooth, multiple missing teeth or your teeth are failing, many of us forget or do not even think about how important our teeth are to our day to day lives and our health. Missing teeth can have detrimental effects on our self-esteem which can cause anxiety and stress. If your teeth are failing because of a condition such as gum disease this can have adverse effects on your overall health. Our teeth impact our mental as well as physical health and this is why teeth restoration is so important. There are non- fixed solutions, such as dentures, although they are not always easy, for example, many patients express their difficulty with eating and speech. Not only are dental implants a permanent solution, they are the closest thing to real teeth.





The Brighton implant clinic is an awarding winning clinic, renowned for our cosmetic restorations and achievements in dental implant cases. With state -of -the -art facilities and our dedicated team in dental implantology, we can ensure to give our patient’s first class care at affordable prices and a 98% success in dental implant treatment.

If you are thinking of having this treatment we offer a free dental implant consultation including a full dental evaluation, free panoramic X-ray and treatment plan.  This means that you will receive all the information as well as an assessment to see what is the best procedure for you at no obligation.

After your assessment and consultation, if you wish to continue you will be booked in for your ‘teeth in a day’ procedure. ‘Teeth in a day’ isn’t a single type of procedure but a technique which enables many different dental implant procedures to be carried out in just one day. There are many different implant procedures from single tooth implants, multiple tooth implants, all-on-four, overdentures enforced by implants and more. One of our dentists will talk through your specific treatment with you, explain everything, answer any questions, as well as talk to you about any fears of phobias you may have.



Firstly, you will be treated for any oral health problems that you may have prior to the procedure, as you need good periodontal health (gum health) before treatment. Some patients can have additional services such as I-V sedation,  this is also known as ‘sleep dentistry’ and is used for anxious patients who do not feel comfortable in the dentist chair.

Before the procedure one of our dental surgeons will give you a local anaesthetic to numb the area.  Depending on the procedure, your dental surgeon will place one, two to multiple dental implants into the jawbone. This single implant or multiple implants will support the crown, bridge or overdenture.

Our dental surgeons will then take immediate impressions after the implants have been placed so that a provisional crown or bridge can be made the same day. The final bridge or crown will be sculpted during the healing process. The provisional bridge is used so that patients can have a crown or bridge during the 4-6 month healing period which will be very similar to the final bridge which will be fitted after this healing time.

The provisional bridge is so that patients can see what they like and dislike about their crown or bridge. Things to consider is the colour, shade, shape and position of the teeth. The final crown or bridge is designed in our own in-house dental laboratory so that any changes can be made with no delays.

The teeth in a day procedure is not suitable for all patients, this can be for a range of different reasons from periodontal health to bone recession. Contact us for more information on our dental implant treatment.
