Dental implants are screw-shaped or cylindrical root-form titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots. These are carefully placed in the jawbone and allowed to heal. During the healing phase, your bone is growing right up to the implant surface in order to lock it in place.
Shortly thereafter, a dental crown is made to fit on top of the dental implant so as to replace a missing tooth or teeth with a “brand-new” tooth. In many cases, you can be functioning on your “new” tooth on the same day as you surgery!
The cost of dental implants varies widely, depending on your specific needs and condition. Wirral implant dentist Dr. Ian Buckle offers a multiple options and can help you choose the solution that fits your budget and goals. Dental implants are certainly not an inexpensive treatment option -but we urge our patients to consider more than the cost. Choosing dental implants can offer a long term improvement in dental health and quality of life.
The dental implant procedure is relatively patients. Patients are often amazed at how comfortable they were during and after the placement of the dental implant. Our dentists are highly experienced in implant dentistry and offer sedation options to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
After the dental implant surgery, you will be given an immediate restoration. This may either be a temporary restoration or a permanent tooth crown (or denture, depending on your treatment plan).
Traditionally, a dental implant is restored based on a predetermined treatment schedule. We offer a unique dental implant technology called Osstell ISQ, that allows our dentists to restore the implant at a time specific to your healing. Osstell ISQ is a diagnostic tool that measures the stability of the dental implant. The dentist will use a wireless apparatus to digitally assess stability. The assessment takes less than 5 seconds and delivers an instant reading. A higher stability rating indicates the implant can be restored more quickly.
Your dental implant will be immediately restored with a provisional dental crown. The permanent crown is typically placed after osseointegration is complete. This is the process by which the dental implant fuses to the living bone. This process can take up to six months, we offer advanced treatment techniques and technology to accelerate the healing process without sacrificing the outcome.

Computer Guided Implantology is the future of implantology. We are pleased to offer this innovative treatment in our Wirral dental practice. 3D CT-guided dental implant surgery gives our dentists an exceptional amount of information before any treatment is completed in the patient’s mouth. This technology uses 3D radiographs of the jaws which allows the dentist to see the bone volume and anatomy of each site for more precise planning. Bone deficiency can be identified before treatment begins allowing the surgeon to plan grafts or angled implants for the best possible outcome. Learn More
