If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be looking for a way of replacing them that gives you the most natural appearance, as well as the best possible function and comfort.
Dental implants are a long-lasting solution to tooth loss, and you may be surprised by the choices that are open to you. You can have a single dental implant to replace a missing tooth, or several implants to provide a secure anchor for bridges or implant-retained dentures. We can even give you back a full set of teeth in one appointment with our teeth-in-a-day service.
Each solution will allow you to smile, eat and chew with confidence.
Dental implants look, work and feel like real teeth. As they are placed in your jaw bone, they also encourage the bone to strengthen around them and can help stop your natural teeth from drifting, as well as potentially preventing future tooth loss.

Until I actually say to people I have three implants in my front teeth, people would not know. They look extremely natural, made a huge difference on photographs as well, because beforehand, my teeth were slightly different colours, now they all look the same colour which makes a difference as well, it's uniform. I think a smile is so, so important and to be able to show your teeth is absolutely brilliant!

No one wants to have an implant if they don't have to but this is surely the place to have one if you have to! A great team and a great result.
The first walk through the door, it felt different from previous treatments I've had before, very friendly, very professional and welcoming. I think the treatments are value for money, I'd definitely recommend Marlborough Dental Studio. I reckon, once you've been, you won't want to go anywhere else.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO DENTAL IMPLANTS WORK?
Dental implants come in three parts. We place the first part, a titanium screw, in your jaw bone to replace the missing root of a lost tooth. Once your bone has strengthened enough to make the dental implant stable, we place the second part - the abutment – to connect the titanium screw to the third part of the implant, your replacement tooth.
This prosthetic tooth is colour-matched and shaped to blend perfectly with the other teeth in your mouth, so it will look completely natural. By the end of your treatment, no-one will be able to spot which tooth is the dental implant.
WHAT ARE TEETH-IN-A-DAY?
With Teeth-in-a-day, our implantologists can give you temporary teeth that look similar to your own on the same day as they place your dental implants. This treatment is ideal if you need to have a number of teeth replaced.
The implants are placed at carefully chosen angles to anchor them within your jaw bone without you having to wait several months for the bone to osseointegrate, i.e. develop a structural and functional connection between the bone and implant. Once the bone is fully stable, we will replace the temporary prosthetic teeth with your permanent set.
Not all dental practices are able to fit Teeth-in-a-day implants, although we are proud to be able to offer them at Marlborough Dental Studio. This can be a fantastic option for giving you back a complete smile in a single day. You can read more about Teeth-in-a-Day implants here.
WHAT ARE IMPLANT-RETAINED DENTURES?
One of the most common problems for denture wearers or for people with large dental bridges is that, over time, the fit of dentures or a bridge can change and become uncomfortable. This is caused by bone loss within the upper or lower jaw as a result of tooth loss.
If you’re a denture wearer and your current dentures feel loose or cause you to suffer from mouth irritation, problems with speaking and eating, dry mouth or excessive saliva, implant-retained dentures could be liberating and potentially life-changing. They work by providing a fixed anchor for your dentures at strategic points in your jawbone. Simply put your dentures in and clip them to your dental implants to stop your dentures from moving.
Denture wearers find implant-retained dentures give them greater comfort than traditional cosmetic dentures, as well as the confidence to eat a wider range of foods, and smile and laugh without fear that their dentures will move. Having dental implants in your jaw bone can also help to stimulate bone growth and protect your underlying facial structure.
MY DENTIST SAYS THAT I HAVE SIGNIFICANT BONE LOSS – DOES THAT MEAN I AM NOT A SUITABLE CANDIDATE FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS?
One of the benefits of having dental implants at Marlborough Dental Studio is that our implantologists are trained in advanced techniques. Using cutting-edge implant technology, we may recommend short or wider implants as an alternative to bone grafts if you don’t have enough bone to secure the older-style implant device. Even sinus lifts may be unnecessary with advanced and angled implants.
If a bone graft or sinus lift is the best option for your individual case, our team have the skills, training and experience to be able to carry out these procedures within the clinic.
