Dental Implants in Essex

Dental implants are a truly wondrous, long-lasting modern solution to replacing missing teeth or stabilising wobbly dentures.

Pedram, our implant dentist, has gained a reputation as a very approachable, talented dentist. His comprehensive implant training and extensive experience of implant placement and restoration means you are in trusted, capable hands.

Missing and damaged teeth that prevent you from eating the foods you love or engaging in activities you used to enjoy, is a really common problem. Unstable dentures that cause angst in social situations, or worse, cause you to hesitate to engage socially, can now be locked into position with implants giving you the confidence to re-engage like you used to.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small, man-made titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth.

When teeth are lost the facial structure collapses creating a caved-in look and therefore implants maintain the facial structure that gives you your unique look.

The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and bonds with the bone to act as an anchor for the replacement tooth that is fitted afterwards.

Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth and look, feel and function like real teeth. Not only can you consume all the foods you used to enjoy but may not have been able to chew, but your smile and your confidence gets a real boost too.

Treatment Options

Single Tooth Implants

Having a tooth extracted is a sad occasion that has ongoing consequences. A gap can lead to the teeth around it tipping into the empty space or being damaged from the additional chewing burden. Dental implants help to maintain the integrity of your natural teeth.

A single tooth implant is advantageous because there is no impact on any of your neighbouring teeth, unlike alternative treatments such as bridges. As the implant replaces both the natural tooth and the root, it also allows for the bone in the gums to be better preserved. The implant integrates with the jawbone, keeping the bone intact and ultimately healthier.

The actual tooth or crown that sits on the implant (root) is impeccably crafted to match up with your existing teeth, so it becomes a seamless, beautiful and functional addition to your smile.

Multiple Tooth Implants

Multiple dental implants can used to replace longer spans of missing teeth in the mouth. They are permanently fixed into the bone and can be cleaned in the same way that you would your natural teeth. Each implant provides a stable base which provides a good base for eating and speaking as well as the aesthetic improvements of replacing missing teeth.

Dental implants have a high success rate and replacing lost teeth with implants can increase patient confidence, oral health and general health. The dental implants can help to restore some of the aesthetic and functional problems that come with missing teeth.

Implant-Retained Dentures

We find that many patients who are unhappy with dentures look for other treatments. They may find that their dentures feel loose or uncomfortable and it is not uncommon for dentures to spoil the taste of food as they cover up so much of the mouth. Patients also find that over time the bone changes from under the dentures making them slack and painful.

A useful solution to this is to use dental implants to support a denture. Dental Implants are placed into the bone and these are used to secure the dentures by either clipping in with magnets, fixing permanently or fixing in but in such a way so the dentist can remove the denture if required.

This method is very successful at reducing many of the issues associated with traditional gum supported dentures.

Teeth in a day

The all on 4 implant system

For many patients with no teeth the ‘all on 4’ method gives them back lots of confidence that they may have not have with their existing dentures. Usually, 4 or more dental implants are placed into the bone and a framework is made that replaces the teeth and gums. This is fixed to the implants effectively giving back security, comfort and function.

The ‘all on 4’ method also helps to retain bone levels which reduces the risk of a ‘sunken’ look which can sometimes be found with full or complete dentures.
Here at the Old Library Dental and Implant Centre, in some cases, we can offer this as a same day service or ‘teeth in a day’.

I have only ever received first class treatment and care at The Old Library Dental and Implant Centre. From my dentist, Dr Dooley, through all of the support staff, I cannot praise them highly enough. Only occasionally is it slightly 'painful' - and that's just down to my teeth!

I visited for the first time yesterday and was very happy with everything. Sharman on reception was very helpful and put me at ease. I am a very nervous patient as I’ve had bad dentists in the past, but when I met Dr Pedram Hejazefar he was so professional, friendly and caring and made me feel reassured. He is an asset to the Old Library Dental Surgery and I highly recommend him, especially if you are dentally phobic like me. I am booked to see the Hygienist next week and I’m not so nervous now. I would not hesitate to recommend this dental surgery to anyone living in the Frinton area as the service they provide is first class.Thank you Dr Pedram for making my first visit a great experience.

Extreme care was taken to ensure I felt no pain when I had the nerve in my tooth extracted - which obviously could have been very painful.I would, therefore, not hesitate to have any further treatment in the future with Dr Pedram Hejazifar.

Not being a fan of dentists, i approached The Old Library surgery for implants. My experience with them was all good. I have quite a lot of work done and i did not feel a thing. NO pain during or after the treatment. I had a plan drew. I knew what i was paying beforehand and what work needed doing. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Lovely receptionist and the dentist and his assistant were marvellous. I felt assured with them and they always made me feel welcome and at ease. I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you all. It was a pleasure, and I never thought id say that about the dentists..ha.....Smiling K Hanson
