All about Dental Implants

At Shine Dental Care in Mansfield, we understand how missing teeth can dent your confidence and hold you back. That’s why we provide dental-implant treatment and have built years of experience in carrying it out safely and successfully. Dental implants are as close as it gets to the real thing. They look and feel incredibly natural and can be used to replace single, multiple and even a complete set of teeth.

Dental implants are a long-term solution

Dental implants are made from high-quality, biocompatible materials, which fuse over time with your jawbone to keep it strong and healthy. They are made of two parts, the first being an artificial root that’s precisely placed into your gum and jaw. The root provides a secure base to affix man-made teeth. Depending on your needs, these could be crowns (single or multiple), bridges or dentures. At Shine Dental Care, we’re also able to replace a complete set of teeth in a single day know as immediate full arch loading (IFAL).

Your smile will look younger and you’ll be able to eat exactly what you like.* Care for your implants properly and they can last for many years making them a true long-term solution. Simply brush, floss and attend all of your check-ups and hygiene appointments. Dr David Heath is constantly researching new innovative for effective implant treatments.

Prices are based on your individual needs and will be provided after your initial consultation. Our prices are clear and transparent, you’ll know exactly what to expect and when. We also provide a range of payment options to help spread the costs. Read more here.

Dental implants for single and multiple teeth, dentures and full set

At Shine Dental Care, Mansfield

Dental implants are suitable for replacing a single or multiple missing tooth/teeth. They can also be used to replace a complete set of teeth as well as to firmly secure dentures.

At Shine Dental Care in Mansfield, we have the experience to provide all of these procedures and tailor them to each patient’s needs. We use advanced digital implant technology including CBCT scanning to take 3D scans of the jawbone to enable the most accurate and safe placement of dental implants. Our CBCT scanner is on site to prevent any delays in your treatment plan.

To find out more about dental-implant treatment, please see the individual procedure pages detailed below:

Single implants – the gold-standard option for replacing single missing teeth.

Implant-retained bridges – for two or more adjacent missing teeth. One or more implants will be placed to support enough crowns or bridges to effectively fill the gap.

Complete set of teeth in a day – known as immediate full arch loading (IFAL), this option can be life changing but involves.considerable planning.

Implant-retained dentures – increase stability and can replace up to 14 missing teeth within the upper or lower jaw.


A brief guide to the dental implant procedure

Our treatment plans are tailored to each of our patients, but the following guidelines give a general idea of procedure sequence and schedule:

Stage 1 – Planning

To help ensure the very best results for our patients, each case needs to be carefully planned. This may include:

  • A CBCT bone scan and radiographs (X-rays) to fully assess your teeth and supporting bone structure
  • Diagnostic wax-up, study models and surgical guide for further assessment and to help us show you the final result we’re hoping to achieve
  • For implant-retained complete dentures, we’ll also create a copy of your dentures
  • Photography for treatment assessment, planning and recording
Stage 2 – Preparing the implant site

Before placing the implant, we may need to remove failing teeth. If this is the case, the tooth would be extracted and allowed to heal for a period of 8 to 12 weeks.

It may also be beneficial to perform a socket preservation procedure. This involves placing a bone substitute material into the socket to create as much bone as possible in which to place the implant. We may use a temporary denture or adhesive bridge when we remove teeth to help maintain your smile.

Stage 3 – Implant placement

Usually this takes place 8 to 12 weeks after a tooth has been extracted. The procedure takes up to 2 hours and is performed under local anaesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout.

Stage 4 – Crown/ bridge/ denture placement

We usually wait a period of 8 to 16 weeks for the implant(s) to fully integrate into the surrounding bone. At this point, we can place the final crown, bridge or denture.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Frequently Asked Questions


  1. What is a dental implant?

    A dental implant consists of an artificial tooth root and man-made replacement tooth. The root is placed beneath the gum line and into the jawbone so that artificial teeth or bridges can be affixed to it.

    They can replace single or multiple teeth (and even a full set of teeth).

  2. Is the surgery painful?

    The implant procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout.

  3. How do I care for dental implants?

    Brush twice a day and floss once a day as you would your natural teeth. It’s also essential to attend all follow-up, check-up and hygiene appointments.

  1. Will I be suitable for dental implants?

    At Shine Dental Care, we fully assess your needs and listen to your concerns to offer all possible treatment options. We’re also very honest about what to expect and potential results. If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis or are a smoker, dental implants may not be right for you. We’ll talk this through in detail during your consultation.

  2. How long does the treatment take?

    This will depend on several factors including how many teeth are being replaced, if any failing teeth need to be removed and the strength of your jawbone. We will provide a timeline as soon as we’ve assessed all of these factors.

  3. How long do dental implants last?

    Dental implants can last for many years (even a lifetime) if you care for them properly. They are a genuine long-term solution to missing teeth.
