Dental Implants Milton Keynes
Replace Missing Teeth Milton Keynes.
Dental implants in Milton Keynes
We often take our smiles for granted, but they say so much to those around us without a single word. So, when you lose teeth, the impact is unexpectedly distressing. It affects your ability to bite, chew, smile, laugh, and even speak.
Dental implants let us restore your whole tooth, from the top of your crown to the tip of the root. While nobody sees beneath the gums, roots give your teeth strength and your smile confidence. Dental implants mimic this natural function.
At Milton Keynes Dental Clinic, our experienced implant dentists use high-quality dental implants to restore your smile’s foundation if you’ve lost one or more teeth.
The Next Best Thing To Real Teeth
Your beautiful new smile deserves a solid footing that’s built to last. Dental implants are titanium posts embedded into your jaw. A custom-made crown will sit proudly on the implant’s abutment.
From the surface, your new replacement will look just like your natural teeth. Beneath your gumline, high-quality implants fused in position replicate the tooth’s root.
Our skilled clinicians use the latest dental technology to ensure the best experience and outcomes.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
A Complete Smile
Gaps in your smile may leave you feeling self-conscious in social situations and avoiding appearing in photos. New, healthy-looking replacement teeth supported by dental implants let you feel good about smiling again.
An Improved Bite
Gaps in your smile cause problems at mealtimes. Without a full set of teeth, you may have difficulty chewing, and food may become trapped. Dental implants make eating feel natural again, providing a more confident bite than dentures or a dental bridge.
Yours for Life
Made from hardwearing titanium, dental implants are a permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth. They are strong, biocompatible, and designed to support your smile for many years. While your crown may need replacing eventually with good oral hygiene, the supporting implant can last a lifetime.
Better Oral Health
A missing tooth can affect the surrounding teeth. The risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and infection increases without treatment. Additionally, your jaw bone may deteriorate, and adjacent teeth can become misaligned. New replacement teeth help preserve your overall dental health.
Once your new tooth is in place, there are no complex care needs. Simply look after your dental implant like your other teeth. Brush and floss thoroughly, make regular dentist appointments, and visit us for routine professional cleaning.

Placing Dental Implants
Your Initial Consultation
If you’ve decided to replace your missing teeth using dental implants, we’ll need to assess your suitability for treatment.
We’ll perform a thorough examination to evaluate your dental health and ask questions about your general well-being and lifestyle. Dental implant placement requires extensive treatment and a prolonged recovery.
During this appointment, we’ll take X-rays of your jawbone. When you have lost teeth, bone loss can be an issue. We’ll assess your jaw to ensure we can place your new teeth.
Your Bespoke Treatment Plan
Before placing your dental implant, we’ll create a thorough treatment plan based on your needs.
We want you to feel at ease during your procedures, so we’ll talk you through the various stages so you know exactly what to expect and answer all of your questions.
Dental Implant Placement
We’ll give you a local anaesthetic to prepare you for your life-changing dental treatment.
If you have failing teeth, we’ll extract these first.
After preparing your gums and jaw, we can place the titanium implant.
Dental implants take several months to anchor to the jaw. Following this stage, osseointegration occurs, bonding the tooth implant into place.
Until your dental implant is firmly in place, we’ll give you a temporary crown. Although you’ll only wear this restoration while your jaw heals, it will look fantastic. This tooth will stay in position until your last appointment.
The Finishing Touches
While waiting for your implant and jaw to fuse, we’ll create your bespoke crown. This replacement tooth will be custom-made to match the shape, size, colour, and texture of your natural teeth.
Finally, after the scans show your jaw has healed, we’ll place your new crown.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants create a foundation for your smile. We’ll place the titanium posts firmly into your jaw. Over the next few months, the implant will fuse into position. Once firmly in position, we’ll fit a natural-looking replacement tooth.
Why choose us for your dental implant treatment?
Milton Keynes Dental Clinic has a longstanding reputation for excellent dental care. Your implants will be placed by Mr Jay Joshi or our visiting implant dentist Dr Uzman Haq.
Jay achieved Distinction in his Postgraduate Diploma in Dental Implants at the prestigious Eastman Institute (UCL).
Uzman’s practice is limited to implants. He has a Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and is a Key Opinion Leader for Megagen Implants. In addition to placing single implants, Uzman can also perform full arch replacements and bone grafting procedures.
How are dental implants better than dentures?
Titanium implants are a fixed solution for supporting replacement teeth. Dentures are better than ever; however, they are not supported below the gum line. Similarly, a fixed bridge takes its support from the adjacent teeth. Having a dental implant fitted utilises the jaw and gives your smile the ultimate support.
How long does dental implant surgery take?
Dental implant treatments are performed in several stages. This is because the jaw bone needs to heal around the implant before we can replace the missing tooth. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants can take several months.
What happens if I cannot have dental implants?
If your jawbone has deteriorated after losing a tooth, we cannot place an implant. In this eventuality, you may need a bone graft procedure to rebuild density in your jaw.
Does dental implant placement hurt?
During your dental implant treatment, we’ll provide a local anaesthetic. You may experience mild discomfort, but the treatment will be pain-free.
How much do dental implants cost?
Dental implants in Milton Keynes start from £2,400, including the crown. Speak to our friendly team about finance options.
How long do dental implants last?
If you have healthy teeth and gums, your implants should last a lifetime. We recommend seeing us regularly so we can monitor your other natural teeth and prevent complications that could cause your implants to fail.
How do I care for dental implants?
The best way to care for your dental implant is to maintain high standards of oral hygiene. Thorough brushing and flossing will reduce the risk of decay, gum disease, and infection, which could harm your new tooth.
