Tooth loss is relatively common, but the impact it can have on an individual’s confidence is huge, not to mention how it can affect your quality of life. Whether you have one missing tooth or several, the good news is that there are a few options you can consider in order to restore your smile to its full glory – and we can help.
Dental implants in Weybridge
Here at Portmore Dental, we’ve been helping patients with tooth loss for several years and offer a range of solutions to help. As a result, we’ve seen first-hand the positive impact dental implants can have, especially in those patients who have struggled with ill-fitting dentures in the past or have simply left their gapped smile as it is through fear of the dentist or feeling embarrassed.
That’s why we’ve worked hard to offer solutions that meet most of our patient’s needs, and to do so, we offer two types of dental implants in Weybridge which are both designed to instil confidence and give you back your quality of life.
Dental implants for missing teeth
It’s not uncommon for patients to put off seeking the help of a dentist because they’re embarrassed about how their teeth look or feel anxious about being in the dentist’s chair. Our dental implants for missing teeth are designed to put these patients at ease, using implant technology to completely restore a full smile, or just individual teeth, without the need for additional support to be fitted.
Dental implants for dentures
Dentures are a common solution for tooth loss, but for many patients, they can become ill-fitting and unreliable, leaving patients feeling self-conscious about their teeth slipping. Our solution for this is a straightforward one, using dental implants to fix the denture in place, and totally removing that risk of movement. This is a popular option for patients who have minimal jawbone for implants, or just want a bit of additional support for their dentures.

DENTAL IMPLANTS FAQ’s
Although dental implants are a big investment, they can actually last for many years, making them a good investment for those suffering from tooth loss. If well taken care of, dental implants can last up to 25 years or more, and regular brushing, flossing and keeping up with routine appointments can help to expand the lifespan of your dental implants in Surrey.
Things you can do to keep your dental implants looking as good as new for years to come, include:
- Seeing a dentist at least every 6 months
- Attending dental hygiene appointments
- Brushing and flossing daily
- Avoiding food and drink that can stain your teeth
Your dentist will be able to support you in looking after your new dental implants.
No. Although the process of having dental implants in Surrey is an invasive one, here at Portmore Dental, we go above and beyond to ensure your experience is a positive one from the moment you step through our door. Of course, this includes making sure you’re never in any pain or discomfort when you’re in the dentist's chair. To achieve this, we offer local anaesthetic which works to numb the area fully before we begin the procedure.
We also have sedation options available where appropriate, which may be helpful if you’re particularly nervous.
It may sound like dental implants would take a lot of looking after, but the truth is that dental implants in Surrey are pretty low maintenance. In fact, looking after your implants should be no different from looking after your own teeth, and regular brushing, flossing and routine check-ups should be all it takes to get the most out of your dental implants.
Having missing teeth can affect how varied your diet is and restrict the things you can eat. Many solutions for tooth loss can help with this but having a fixed solution such as dental implants fitted can help to give you the structure and stability you need to enjoy a wider, more varied diet.
You may be restricted with what you can eat whilst your gums heal, but once you have healed completely and have your permanent implants in situ, you can eat and drink whatever you like without issue.
