Dental implants

At Blue Sky Dental & Implant Clinic in Belfast, we are experts in replacing teeth. Using the latest dental technology we can help you achieve a beautiful, natural smile. A dental implant is a fixed solution for one or more missing teeth, and can help restore both your smile and your quality of life.

Patients don't need to tolerate gaps in their smile or ill-fitting dentures. The idea of wearing loose dentures is as old as 19th century inventions. With Blue Sky Dental & Implant Clinic, we'll bring you innovative solutions for your oral health concerns: dental implants in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Dental implants offer a cost-effective solution to fill gaps between teeth, anchor ill-fitting dentures, stabilise fixed and permanent bridges, and restore the beauty of your smile. We present different options to suit your condition, from single to multiple implants.

Single dental implant

Dental Implants Single

An implant is a great choice for a single missing tooth, whether it’s visible or not, and the results can be life-changing. A single implant provides the foundation for a crown, which will be created at Blue Sky Dental & Implant Clinic to match your teeth exactly.

Multiple dental implants

Dental Implants Multiple

If you’re missing more than one tooth, there are a number of options available to you at Blue Sky Dental & Implant Clinic. In some cases a single implant can support two replacement teeth, or two implants can support a fixed bridge if you have several missing teeth. A bridge is a long-lasting, natural-looking solution which will help preserve the health of the rest of your teeth and jaw.

Teeth in a day

Teeth in a day is a process at Blue Sky Dental & Implant Clinic where patients can have implants placed and fully functioning teeth attached in the space of one day. With the latest technological advances, it is possible to remove a tooth and place an implant immediately into the extraction socket.

Oral surgery

If you have had missing teeth for a while then loss of bone in your jaw or bone atrophy is the body’s normal response to tooth loss, infection, gum disease or other trauma. This may mean you need some treatment before the Implant can be placed. The team here at Blue Sky Dental & Implant Clinic will advise you of this.

How is an implant fitted?

Assessment: Every treatment begins with an assessment from your local Blue Sky Dental & Implant Clinic dentist who will be performing your implant treatment. They will discuss all the options with you, make an assessment of the best solution for you, and ensure you understand every step of your treatment. You will have an x-ray and, in some cases, a CT scan to help visualise your jaw, ensure your gums are healthy and that there is enough jaw bone to place the implant.

The treatment: This is when the implant is placed into your jaw. It’s a straightforward process which can be completed under local anaesthetic. If you are particularly nervous or have a dental phobia, your dentist will make sure you feel absolutely comfortable with the treatment, and can provide sedation if needed.

The implants will need three to six months to heal and integrate with your jaw bone to provide a solid support for the crown or bridge.

Depending on your treatment and your dentist’s diagnosis, a temporary crown can be fitted at the same time as your initial appointment.Teeth in a day is a modern procedure which enables you to walk out of the clinic with brand new teeth in just one day. These will stay in place until the final restoration appointment.

Once your jaw has healed, your dentist will take an impression of your mouth. This enables a dental technician to build your bespoke crown or bridge, which will be colour matched to blend seamlessly with your other teeth.

Restoration:It may be necessary to have a separate appointment between six weeks and six months after your initial treatment, to allow the implant to fully integrate. This ensures that your jaw has completely healed before the crown or bridge is permanently fitted.

Your smile is now complete.

How do I look after my implant?

As with natural teeth, good oral hygiene is important for preventing gum disease and prolonging the life of your implants. You do not need to remove the teeth fitted to your implants, but clean them as you would your natural teeth. A high standard of daily care, along with regular check-ups with your local Blue Sky Dental & Implant Clinic dentist and hygienist, will help to ensure your mouth stays healthy and your implants last as long as possible.
