If you have one or more missing teeth and want to restore your smile, dental implants could be the perfect solution for you.
Used to replace lost teeth, bridges or dentures, they are the next best thing to natural teeth.
Dental implants are fixed into your jawbone, ensuring stability, functionality and a great looking smile. They could easily be mistaken for real teeth!
Click the banner below or fill in the form on the right to find out exactly how dental implants can help restore teeth to your mouth and bring confidence to your smile.
How do dental implants work?
To recreate the natural tooth, a dental implant uses a small titanium screw to act as the root, and a naturally coloured crown that acts as the tooth.
The process is highly effective and pain free, requiring just a few simple steps:
- A full consultation with our expert dentists to assess your mouth and bone structure
- A visit to implant the titanium screw into your jawbone, which is then left to allow the bony tissue to grow over it and ensure it’s firmly locked in place
- Removal of the temporary plug, and the fitting of the crown, bridge or denture
The benefits of the treatment
Dental implants are a safe and highly effective treatment to replace either single or multiple teeth. They can be used in just one location, or act as bridge retainers for whole rows of teeth. In general, they:
- Remove the need to wear dentures, permanently fixing teeth in place
- Can be used to work around healthy, undamaged teeth
- Help maintain bone volume
- Have high success rates compared to conventional treatments
