Natural looking and long lasting tooth loss solutions with dental implants
Dental implants are the treatment of choice when it comes to replacing missing teeth or stabilising loose dentures and it’s easy to see why. It’s just like having your own tooth back.
Dental implants provide a long-term solution to tooth loss, restoring the strength, appearance and functionality of your teeth. Most patients are suitable for this treatment, which has a very high success rate. Unlike bridges, they don’t require drilling down neighbouring healthy teeth and they prevent the bone and tissue loss often associated with the aged look of people who lose teeth.
Dental implants can also be used to securely stabilise loose dentures. Even the most carefully crafted dentures can become loose over time, but with several strategically placed dental implants, denture wearers can be confident of their smiles in all social situations.

What is a dental implant? Dental implants replace the entire missing tooth and come in two parts; the dental implant replaces the tooth root and a crown replaces the missing tooth. Over a period of months the jaw bone sets solidly around the new implant giving your new crown the same secure foundation as a natural tooth.
How long do implants last? In a healthy person with a healthy mouth and bone, implants should last as long as your natural teeth. They need caring for as natural teeth do so regular hygienist visits and good home care are vital.
Will the treatment hurt? The treatment is pain free and is carried out under a local anaesthetic. The treatment is a minor surgical procedure so some soreness may occur for a few days after.
Am I suitable for implants? Most of our patients are suitable. The success of dental implants depends on it being the best treatment for your individual needs. That is why it is so important that your case is comprehensively assessed prior to embarking on treatment. If you are not suitable we promise to do all we can to find an alternative solution.
