Dental Implants

The development of dental implants opened new avenues for the dental profession – the loss of teeth was not the end… now we can replace them.

Implants have been developed to utilise a variety of systems to allow for the replacement of a single front tooth to providing frameworks for full mouth re-construction when all teeth have been lost.

Dental Implants can last incredibly well but it is essential that they are placed in the correct manner, by experienced hands,  in the correct place, in a well-maintained mouth to get good results. Once an implant has integrated with the bone it cannot be moved. If the implant is not well maintained then it will loose bone support (similar to gum disease) and when the bone has gone the implant will fail – and cannot easily be replaced.

Implant FAQ

How long will my implant last?

Implants last exceptionally well but do not last forever. Appropriate planning, skilled placement and excellent after care all contribute to how long your implant will last. Certain factors can increase the chance your implant will fail such as smoking or inadequate home care. Research has shown 95% of implants are still functioning in 15 years with appropriate maintenance.

Is an implant the best option for me?

The simple answer is not necessarily! Implants are fantastic but not always the most appropriate option and a full discussion with your dentist or an implantologist needs to consider the most appropriate choice for you. However it is generally true that other treatments can reduce the life of the other teeth in your mouth

What is the best implant to have?

There are numerous companies making dental implants with different ranges. There is no one best implant. It would be sensible advice to ensure you know exactly what system is being used in your mouth, if only because this information will help future maintenance. However ensure that you are being treated with a “pedigree” system. Cheap alternatives can be enticing – but a failed implant is infinitely harder (and more expensive) to manage. The mainstream system such as Straumann and Biohorizons used at BPDS are researched and tested to ensure they have the best outlook.

What causes implants to fail

The implant itself is incredibly strong and is unlikely to physically fail. However the implant is held in the bone in a similar way to your tooth. The most common failure is an equivalent to gum disease. “Mucositis” is the early stage, similar to gingivitis – the early stage of gum disease. This shows as bleeding from around the implant. Bleeding is not normal with an implant and should be taken as an early warning sign! Per-implantitis equates to gum disease and results in loss of bone around the implant which will lead to failure in time.

The restoration on the implant can require maintenance depending on the type of restoration used.


“Invisalign – Light. Crooked front teeth that had started to become more noticeable. This, in turn, started to affect my confidence.

The experience at Beaufort Park was excellent throughout. The staff, from the initial consultation, were friendly and professional. The welcoming reception staff through to the excellent dentist (Russell Gidney) have made this an (almost!) pleasurable experience!

I feel so much more confident and happy to smile again in public.

Quintin Bell

“I hated my smile in photos, I looked as though I only had about 4 teeth! 🙁

Treatments have all been explained, the team have been great & I have started to notice my teeth changing & looking good – despite not even being half way through my treatment (Invisalign Aligner 11/23). I am so happy with the progress.

Thank you! 🙂

Super, I would recommend to anyone considering treatment.

“After years of being unhappy with my crooked teeth and avoiding photographers if at all possible.

I decided to seek corrective treatment at the grand old age of 55 in order to be able to smile at my daughters up coming wedding. After a chat with the Beaufort Dental practice I decided on a course of CFast treatment. In a few short months I was thrilled with the result. Straight teeth which were so much easier to care for and which looked 100 per cent more attractive

The cost was manageable too and I paid at intervals during the treatment. I wish I’d done it years ago.


“I did not like my teeth so didn’t smile.

Invisalign – absolutely brilliant! Very professional team, extremely happy with the results!”

Lisa G

“Even though my oral hygiene has always been excellent I have for many years hated my teeth which were discoloured + the crowns rather mismatched.

Dr Russell Gidney was the first dentist I had confidence in to correct my problems. He showed great empathy, kindness + professional skill. He made me feel completely at ease.

His dental nurses + admin staff are all lovely. The outcome is better than I expected, I now have a lovely smile!”

Pamela C

“I recently had cosmetic work on my teeth carried out by Russell at the surgery. he explained everything in detail and I am overjoyed with the results. The difference it has made is amazing and I thoroughly recommend them. The staff are very helpful too!”
