Dental Implants

Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth, or have uncomfortable, loose or ill-fitting dentures that are preventing you from smiling, speaking and eating with confidence, then dental implants could be the answer for you.

Implants are a proven, long-established treatment that has been scientifically tested and documented and used by dentists worldwide, providing a real alternative to some of today’s more conventional restorative dentistry.

An implant is a small titanium metal screw which is carefully placed into the jawbone, normally under local anaesthetic, to replace a missing tooth root and provide a permanent foundation for a crown, bridge or denture. The replacement teeth are custom-made for you, carefully shaded to match your existing teeth and produced to meet your individual needs.

Once in place they look, feel and function just like the real thing. Cared for properly, in just the same way as for natural teeth, implants can last for many years, and in most cases, a lifetime.


Many factors are important in the success of dental implants and that is why we always carry out a detailed assessment of your general and oral health and look at the amount of bone available at the site of any proposed implant.
