After years on being scared of dentists,she put us at ease straight away and explained the procedures in order they are getting done and explained at any time we can put our hand up and stop. She was also so lovely with my children and was very understanding to our needs. From the moment we walked in the door reception staff were so lovely and we were made to feel accommodated.

    "My experience recently has been great! I was terrified of the dentist since I was a child and these appointments was the first time in 13 years since I was back. Switched to my dental because my friend who is also afraid recommended them for being so good with people like us. My dentist and the assistant have been amazing with me! Had to get some work done and a crown so took 3 appointments but every time was great. Was very worked up the first 2 appointments and there patience and care with me was outstanding! Didn’t even cry on my third appointment because they made me feel comfortable and assured. Highly highly recommend my dentist to anyone who is afraid or unsure! Dr aiofe and conor are amazing!"

  • 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 Foyle 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.

If you are interested in finding out more about dental implants, you can book a consultation for a no obligation conversation about your options and to see if implants are the right choice for you.

Call us on 028 7136 1181 to find out more

  • 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.
