Your teeth can have that second chance
Dental implants have grown in popularity over the last few years. For many people, they offer an affordable and convenient solution to the problem of missing teeth and offer a good alternative to Dentures and Bridges. They’re permanent, easy to fix and are colour-matched to blend in with the natural colour of your teeth.
Why choose dental implants at Brixham Dental Practice?
We offer the very best in advanced dental implant surgery using the Implantium dental implant system. Our implant clinic is led by our team of Dental Professionals Dr Paul Richardson, Dr Anne Green and Dr Ian Seddon and together they have performed hundreds of placements, from a single missing tooth to full mouth reconstructions.
Implants from Brixham Dental Practice provide a wide range of benefits which can result in increased self-confidence - giving you the reassurance you need to be able to laugh and eat knowing that your teeth are securely in place.
What are dental implants?
They really are a revolution in dental care! Previously, patients would have to deal with irritating removable dentures that would rub and become loose.
Dental implants have opened up a whole new world of options for our fantastic patients.

Are dental implants right for me?
If you’re looking for a permanent solution that’s as close to a natural tooth as possible, dental implants are ideal. Other benefits to this treatment include:
Function: Implants help to restore your tooth function, giving you the freedom to enjoy the foods that may have once caused you problems.
Appearance: The implant’s custom-made finish creates a natural look, designed to seamlessly blend with your existing smile.
Security: An implant also replaces your tooth’s root, creating a secure base.
Preservation: This root replacement also helps to preserve your jawbone, which may otherwise begin to shrink, causing changes in your facial structure.
Strength: The dental implant root is made from titanium, providing true strength and stability.
Which type of implant is right for me?
Missing one tooth
A single implant can be fitted to seamlessly replace your missing tooth.
Missing two or more teeth
Multiple implants can be used to support a bridge or secure a denture.
Looking to stabilise dentures
Implants can be used to support removable dentures securely in place whilst being worn, or to fix your dentures in place permanently, just like real teeth.
Your dental implant treatment
For the treatment, you’ll receive a local anaesthetic, to keep any discomfort to a minimum. Should you feel particularly nervous about the process, speak to your dentist about the possibility of dental sedation; this allows you to remain in a completely relaxed state throughout treatment.
Our practice is designed to help you feel as relaxed as possible throughout any treatments you may require, so our dentists are more than happy to discuss additional support to help you feel comfortable throughout. Click here to find out more about sedation at Brixham Dental Practice.
The treatment itself usually takes as little as one hour, however this will depend on your individual treatment plan, and the number of implants to be fitted - your dentist will advise during your prior appointments so you know what to expect at every stage.
We know that you’ll have several questions and individual concerns prior to your treatment – our Treatment coordinator Harriet is here to answer any questions you may have, and to discuss in detail which are the best options for you.
