Losing teeth is, unfortunately, a part of life and can happen at any time. You can lose a tooth in a sporting injury, as a result of growing older, an accident, gum disease or just as an offshoot of rotten luck. Luckily, we here at Prettygate Dental are experts in tooth replacement and in the implementation of dental implants! The practice of dentistry has now come on so far that losing a tooth can be a minor issue, as all teeth can be restored to their former glory.
So What is a Dental Implant?
Learn more about the tooth loss treatment!
A dental implant consists of a metal post or frame that is placed directly into the jawbone. This post is, more often than not, made of titanium which means that it is incredibly durable and of an extremely high quality. The implant post then is allowed to heal for around 6 weeks.
At this point, we will discuss with you the construction of your brand new, custom-made tooth! It is interesting to note that a dental implant treatment is one one of the safest osseointegration procedures (the connection of living bone to an implant) around!
Our dental implants are made to be perfect!
When it comes to the construction of the tooth itself, your dentist will make sure that your dental implant matches the rest of your teeth exactly. Once your new tooth has been fitted you will enjoy all the benefits of your old tooth! It will enable you once more to have confidence in your smile, to eat and drink whatever you wish without the risk of infection.
In addition to all of these benefits, a dental implant can be considered a permanent solution as it is exceptionally long lasting, and will be identical to the teeth that surround it! Nobody will ever know the difference.
Nobel Biocare at Prettygate Dental
At Prettygate Dental we use Nobel Biocare as our primary method of dental implant treatment. Formed in 1978 with a specialist leaning towards osseointegration, Nobel Biocare is an industry leader and is also one of the most reliable forms of dental implant treatment available today – it also prioritises patient comfort, which we love.
With our extensive range of bone and tissue level dental implants, we are able to adjust each implant to your specific mouth ensuring that the comfort and feel of your implant are perfect and that no issues occur post-treatment.
Eat, drink and smile, stress free!
As we have said, the extreme quality of these implants often mean that just like normal teeth, they can survive a lifetime. However, the longevity of the dental implant is dependent on factors such as your oral hygiene routine, smoking, alcohol consumption and dietary factors.
Our recommendation is to keep your implant as clean as is possible, so that it does not too quickly succumb to the effects of smoking, drinking or a high sugar diet! That being said however, due to the resilient nature of these implants, we include a ten-year warranty.

Natural teeth whitening treatments come in many shapes and sizes and honestly, it was hard to whittle down the list to just 5 ridiculous treatments but alas, it has been done. It wasn’t easy, as some people are just ridiculous and will try anything to get whiter...

"I cannot give enough stars to this practice. I have always been a nervous patient, but the competence and professionalism of the staff at this practice are outstanding, which has enabled me to relax and not fear to go to the dentist as much as I previously did. Patients are treated with dignity and respect as soon as they walk in the door, from receptionist through to dentist and hygienist.

"Very nice people"
"After finding out I needed a root canal treatment I was devastated, as my previous dentist told me it would cost over 1000 pounds, fortunately, my son googled the treatment and local dentists, Prettygate popped up and at a third of the price! After an initial consult I was sold, the dentist was fantastic and very caring, I would absolutely recommend, still can't believe how much cheaper they are!"
