Dental Implants

The fear of losing our teeth is something many of us experience. Today however, tooth loss does not have to be a permanent problem. Our dental implant system provides a safe and reliable method for replacing teeth, whether you have lost one, several or all of them. Your new teeth look and feel natural, and allow you to live, laugh and enjoy life with total confidence.

Dental implants are usually the best solution for replacing missing teeth as they are designed to completely replace your old tooth - at both a root and crown level. The root is made of titanium, which is placed into the gum to form a secure foundation, whilst the replacement tooth is fitted on top to create a comfortable, life-like replacement.

Here at Gorse Covert Dental Practice, we provide dental implant treatment that is carried out by Dr Nilesh Shah. With a Masters Degree in Oral Implantology from the University of Sheffield and a special interest in Cosmetic Dentistry, Implantology and Oral Surgery, Nilesh has trained at the internationally renowned 'Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education' in Miami. A highly experienced Dental Implant dentist, Nilesh has a gentle, caring approach and is able to help put the minds of even our most nervous patients at ease. Well respected in his field, Nilesh lectures nationally and internationally on Dental Implants and lectures at the University of Salford on their Implantology Masters Programme.

Frequently Asked Questions: Dental Implants

  • How long do Dental Implants last?

    With proper care and cleaning, dental implants can last a lifetime.

  • Can problems occur with Dental Implants?

    A few people can have initial problems speaking clearly after receiving an implant-supported bridge or denture. Usually, this adjustment phase lasts only a few days before normal speaking returns.

  • Can I eat whatever I want with Dental Implants?

    Yes, from biting into an apple to eating toffee, there is no difference between natural and implant-supported teeth in what you can eat!

  • How long does treatment take?

    Your dentist will be able to give you a rough timetable before the treatment starts. Traditionally, treatment can take from 3 to 4 months to complete. However with advances in modern dental technology, some dental implant treatment options can now be fitted on the same day.
