High Quality Dental Implants
Securely replace missing teeth
Implants are a great way to restore your confidence to smile and eat well
What are dental implants?
Dental Implants are specially medical devices made from special “biocompatible” alloys. They are placed securely directly into your jaw bone.
We offer a range of implant solutions replacing just one tooth, up to a whole row of teeth:
- Single implants
- Multiple teeth
- All On 4 Technique
Your implant dentist will discuss the options with you and help you choose the right approach for you.
Why get Dental Implants?
Implants provide an excellent solution for those patients who want a secure, natural looking smile. Their placement directly into the bone means that you won’t have embarrassing moments of dentures slipping out.
Unlike a conventional crown, you do not need a tooth to be there to place an implant. They can even be used to support fixed bridges when appropriate.
Unlike dentures implants are fixed permanently into position so they do not move, or need to be removed for cleaning. Implants are the closest replacement for your own natural teeth.
As they are independently placed from your own teeth, they won’t cause any increased load on your own teeth; in fact implants can be used to help spread the load evenly across your mouth. Having a fully restored mouth can give a balanced bite, and a full natural looking smile.
We do not want cost to be a barrier to you accessing the best level of care for you.
What is All On 4?
This is a technique where we can use just 4 implants to restore a whole arch of teeth.
Do implants hurt?
We use local anaesthetic to ensure that the procedure is comfortable; any post operative discomfort can typically managed with over the counter medicines.
Can I have implants if I smoke?
Although some people do have implants while they are still smoking, it does increase the risk of failure; we encourage you to give up smoking prior to implant treatment.
Do implants need maintenance?
Implants need looking after like your own natural teeth. Although an implant cannot get tooth decay, gum disease can occur, as it does around natural teeth. Therefore you’ll need to keep to good oral hygiene, and regular visits to a hygienist can be of benefit.
