Missing teeth? Not a problem

Missing teeth? Not a problem

Dental implants are usually the best solution for replacing missing teeth. The fear of losing our teeth is something many of us worry about and some experience. Today, tooth loss does not have to be a problem.

Dental implants provide a safe and reliable method for replacing missing teeth, whether you have lost one tooth or several teeth, we have a solution for you. Your new teeth look and feel natural, and allow you to live, laugh and enjoy life with total confidence.

  • The implant is made of titanium, which is the most biocompatible material to place in the mouth.
  • A crown is placed on top of the implant to create a comfortable, life-like replacement.
  • Implants offer denture wearers a complete solution to have ‘life without dentures’.

What are the different Implant Treatments?

Dental implants have a high success rate and can be completed in one visit. We have various options for you, depending on your requirements.

  • Single tooth implants

    Single tooth implants

    Implants can replace a missing single tooth instead of wearing a denture or a bridge (which involves filing down adjacent teeth). In many cases, if a front tooth is missing, a temporary crown can be fitted the same day.

  • Multiple missing teeth

    Multiple missing teeth

    If multiple teeth are missing next to each other, it is possible to place a bridge between two implants just like a bridge between two teeth.

  • Teeth-in-a-day


    In just one day you can have a full set of fixed teeth – your ‘Same Day Smile’ is created by placing 4 or more dental implants into the jaw, with a fixed bridge being attached, all on the same day. Our leading surgeons are experienced in the ‘Same Day Smiles’ technique. Click here for more information.

Dental Implants and CT Scanning

Dental Implants and CT Scanning

At Bedford Dental Surgery we are constantly investing in new technology and equipment. We are one of the few practices in the area to have an onsite Cone Beam CT Scanner, which enables us to take CT Scans for patients without hassle or outside referral, making the dental implant process easier and more efficient for our patients.

  • The main benefit of using this advanced technology is improving patient safety as CT scans are essential for the accurate placement of dental implants especially in risky areas involving the lower posterior teeth or near the sinuses.
  • This equipment produces 3D images that can be used for the precise placement of implants using SICAT-guided surgery technology, to an accuracy of 0.5mm.
