Dental Implants

Dental implants are an innovative solution to tooth loss, which includes inserting a small screw or post into the jawbone that can support artificial teeth like crowns or bridges. Unlike other techniques to replace missing teeth, dental implants provide more stability, and give you both the look and function of real teeth too.

Rebuild your smile

We know that missing teeth can not only impact your ability to bite and chew, but it can create a loss of volume in the jaw, create an ageing effect and can also lower confidence. We are proud to offer a range of solutions using dental implants to help rebuild your smile.

We are committed to giving you the best value possible when it comes to our range of dental and cosmetic treatments, including membership plans.

The process

We’ll have scans of your teeth taken to assess the health and condition of your jawbone and ensure that your jaw is dense enough to support implants. If there are any parts of broken teeth left behind, we will also have to extract them to make space for the implants.

Once we have made sure that you are suitable for dental implants, we’ll provide you with a full treatment plan and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have.

The procedure will take place under local anaesthetic, which means that you won’t feel any pain.

Recovery and follow-up treatment
Once the implant has been inserted, we’ll need to wait between two and six months to allow the jawbone to fuse around the implant. During this time, we can provide you with a temporary bridge, dentures or even a temporary tooth to disguise the gap.

Once the implant has fully healed, the connector (abutment) will be attached to the top of the implant. Images or casts will then be taken in order to create your new crown or bridge.

Final appointment
During your final appointment, we’ll remove any temporary teeth and insert your new permanent bridge or crown.

How long do dental implants last?
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Are dental implants suitable for everyone?
Dental implants are an excellent solution for many people, but there are a few considerations:
  • Ideally, you should be over the age of 21, which is when the jawbone has fully finished growing
  • The jawbone should be strong and healthy, in order to support the implant screw or post
  • If you have diabetes, then the condition must be stable and well-controlled
  • Lifestyle choices such as heavy smoking and drinking can affect your eligibility for this treatment, as they can both lead to oral problems such as gum disease and bone loss
If you are concerned about your eligibility for dental implants, then and talk to one of the team.
Is the process painful?
We’ll place you under local anaesthetic, which numbs the mouth and prevents pain. You may feel some discomfort, such as bruising and swelling, once the anaesthetic has worn off, but this should only last a few days and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief.
How long does it take to have implants fitted?
This varies, depending on your individual needs, but it usually takes between three and eight months to complete the treatment.

We look forward to welcoming you
