Dental implants at {my}dentist, The Ridgeway, Plympton

  • Do you find it difficult to eat your favourite foods, enjoy a juicy steak or bite an apple?
  • Are you embarrassed to smile, or do you suffer from confidence issues because of missing, broken or loose teeth?
  • Are your dentures loose and do you worry about them falling out?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, dental implants could be right for you. Here at {my}dentist, The Ridgeway, Plympton our experienced dental implant surgeons can help you regain confidence in your smile with a permanent solution for any number of missing teeth.

What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a fixed solution for missing teeth that are the closest possible replacement for natural teeth. They involve one or more titanium screws being inserted into your jawbone to mimic a natural tooth root. Dental crowns are securely attached to these to fill the gaps in your mouth. Because dental implants are securely anchored in your jaw you’ll have the confidence to comfortably eat whatever you like.

The main benefits of dental implants:

  • Replace loose-fitting dentures
  • Maintain bone structure after tooth loss
  • Improve the appearance of your smile
  • Boost your confidence
  • Function and feel just like natural teeth
  • Improve chewing and speaking
  • Long term solution
  • High success rate

Dental implants are a well-established treatment for replacing missing teeth. As they are inserted directly into your jawbone they help prevent bone loss or movement of your remaining teeth, helping to maintain the structure of your face.

From £49.97 per month*

How much do implants cost?

At {my}dentist, The Ridgeway, Plympton implants start from just £49.97 per month* with affordable finance**, but your Treatment Co-Ordinator and Dental Implant surgeon will give you a full quote before the treatment commences based on your personal circumstances.

Why choose {my}dentist, The Ridgeway, Plympton

At {my}dentist, The Ridgeway, Plympton our experienced dental implant surgeons use the latest technology to make your dental implant journey as comfortable and convenient as possible in our safe, state of the art practice.

Intraoral scanner
The intraoral scanner replaces the need for taking messy impressions. Your clinician will use the scanner to create a highly accurate, 3D digital model of your mouth that aids the lab in creating surgical guides as well as crowns and bridges that exactly match the colour and shape of your original teeth.

CBCT Scanner
In many cases, implant patients will be required to have a CBCT scan to provide the dentist with vital information such as bone density and location of nerves and sinuses, and to help guide the placement of new implants. {my}dentist, The Ridgeway, Plympton has an in-practice CBCT machine, meaning that our patients have no need to travel elsewhere for their scans.

Your Treatment Co-ordinator

All dental implant patients are supported by a dedicated treatment co-ordinator, starting with your initial consultation. They will help you understand each stage of the implant process, what to expect, and discuss the various finance options available.

If you are interested in finding out more about implants, you can book a free consultation with one of our friendly Treatment Co-ordinators for a no obligation conversation about your options and to see if implants are the right choice for you.

  • Consultation Your initial consultation will be with either our Implant Surgeon or Treatment Coordinator (TCO), who can discuss the different types of implants, single or multiple depending on your need. Following this there may be a need for a more clinical focused consultation.

  • Diagnostic Scans We will carry out a number of digital scans, to build a digital 3D model of your mouth so we can get a clear picture of the area we will place the implant, and a more detailed X-ray using a Cone Beam Computer Tomography scanner so that our Implant surgeon can assess the state of the bone below the gum to get a really clear picture of your treatment need.

  • Treatment Plan Once our experienced implant surgeon has assessed all of you scans they will explain the nature of your treatment, the stages involved and costs. We offer flexible payment options to make implants even more affordable.

  • Commence Treatment Once you are happy we will begin treatment. The length and numbers of appointments will vary depending on the complexity of your particular need, but your Implant Surgeon will have detailed all of this in your treatment plan.

  • Implant Placed Once the implant(s) are placed it may be necessary it might be necessary to allow time for healing before attaching the replacement teeth. Once we are happy the implant has healed we will arrange a series of appointments to fabricate the replacement teeth.

  • Aftercare Your Implant Surgeon will advise you about looking after your implant and may well give you some painkillers to help with the pain over the days after your surgery as well as detailed advice about cleaning the implants and the teeth attached to them.
