Implants

Dental implants are a successful long term solution for anyone who is missing one or more teeth. This is the closest we get to giving you back your own teeth again and it is often the best way to replace missing teeth because the other teeth are left alone.

Implants can also be used for those patients who find wearing dentures difficult.

We have an experienced implant surgeon within the practice who will fix the implant for you and then your usual dentist will provide a high quality cosmetic tooth – or teeth.

An implant is essentially a replacement root portion of the tooth and this becomes an anchor for a replacement tooth. They look and feel like your own teeth, they are permanent and they may last a lifetime. They can be used to replace either a single missing tooth or to hold a bridge in place.

Each one is hand-crafted to your exact requirements and, naturally, that takes a little time. Speak with your dentist about the timetable involved for the implant system you are considering.

Dental implants are a proven option with a long clinical history and they have a very high success rate. Over the longer term, implants are a cost-effective and highly satisfactory option for many patients.
