Dental implants offer a secure, strong, and natural-looking solution for missing teeth. They are highly advanced in dental restoration and a truly modern way to fill in the gaps in your smile. Implants use strong titanium posts, which are placed into your jawbone to create a fixed new tooth root, used to support a crown or bridge.
Titanium is very well-tolerated by the body, which is why it’s used for dental implants. Over time, the titanium root fuses to the surrounding bone in the jaw, becoming a solid and durable foundation.Get more information
Why choose dental implants?
Whether you are looking to replace a single tooth or many missing teeth, we can use dental implants to provide stable and supported replacements for life. Implants allow you to regain the look, feel and function of natural teeth, without the worry that your restoration will slip or fail.
A missing tooth can significantly affect the way you speak, eat, and feel. A gap can cause your facial shape to lose structure, as your gum can shrink, and remaining teeth move over time. Dental implants not only restore your smile, but they can also greatly improve your quality of life and self-confidence. You no longer need to worry about avoiding certain foods and can feel happy about showing off your smile again.

Benefits of Implants
A firm restoration, implants will not slip or become loose over time. They are held in place by your bone so you can be confident of their strength and durability.
Implants look and feel just like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, drink and talk just like you did before, as well as show off your beautiful smile.
Dental implants are a well-established, safe, and highly effective way of replacing one or more missing teeth in any part of your mouth.
Implants provide support to your facial structure, protect your gum and can be fitted with no detrimental effect on your existing healthy teeth.
Implants use cutting edge digital dental technology combined with specialist expertise to create the next best thing to a natural tooth.
How do implants work?
Dental implant treatment can be quite lengthy, involving several in-surgery appointments, but it is all worth it once you see your final smile!
During a full examination and assessment, we ensure you are a suitable implant candidate. Your treatment plan is devised and discussed in detail, including an estimated cost and timeframe.
We precisely and accurately plan the best positions for your dental implants using innovative digital technology. Any preparatory treatment needed, such as bone grafts or extractions, is carried out.
The titanium implant is placed into your jawbone by our skilled implantologist, using local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort. The implant will take 3-6 months to heal and fuse to the bone, so a temporary tooth is fitted to protect your gum during the healing process.
Once your implant has fully healed and integrated, we fit your final crown or bridge and complete your brand-new smile! We finish your treatment by giving some tailored advice on how to look after your dental implant.
What types of implants are available?
A missing tooth can be effectively replaced using a crown fitted to a single dental implant. The replacement tooth is strong, secure, and durable, able to withstand pressures from chewing and look just like your existing teeth. A single implant can be fitted with no damage to the remaining healthy teeth, prevents unwanted movement and strengthens the jaw.
If you have several missing teeth, there are various implant options to consider filling the gaps. Separate single implants can be placed, but you do not necessarily need an implant fitted for each missing tooth. Strategically placed implants can be used to support a bridge to replace several adjacent teeth. This method is particularly effective in cases where the jawbone may not be sufficient for implant treatment in some places.
Full arch implants
Traditionally, dentures have been the go-to option for replacing a full upper or lower arch of missing teeth. However, despite the advances in denture treatment, they can be uncomfortable to wear and do not stop the jawbone from degrading over time. Dental implants are seen as the superior alternative and offer two main full arch options:
- A fixed full arch bridge of new teeth, supported by four or six precisely placed dental implants. Once they have settled, your new teeth will feel completely natural and enable you to eat, drink and speak as you did before.
- A denture, anchored into place by dental implants. Implant-supported dentures are much more secure and do not move when worn, giving you back your confidence and a full smile.
We know that Dental Implant treatment can be expensive, which is why we are pleased to offer flexible payment options to help spread the cost.

- You get the treatment you want – treatment that will make you look and feel a million times better

Frequently Asked Questions
Most people are a suitable candidate for dental implants, if they are generally healthy and have good oral health. However, they are not an ideal option for everyone. Dental implants are not usually offered to younger patients whose jaws are still growing. We will thoroughly discuss your overall suitability for implant treatment at your initial consultation.
We use local anaesthetic during dental implant surgery to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure. You won’t be able to feel a thing. After treatment, it is normal to experience some discomfort, and this can be managed with pain relief advised by your dentist. Most patients can return to their usual routines the next day.
The whole process, from missing teeth to secure fixed replacements, can take several months. The implant surgery is a relatively quick procedure, but the implants themselves need around 3-6 months to heal and fuse before fixed permanent teeth can be placed. Your new smile will be more than worth it in the end.
Dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime if they are properly looked after. This includes maintaining an excellent brushing and flossing routine, looking after your general health, and attending regular check-up appointments with your dentist. The crown or bridge that the implant supports may need to be replaced over time due to normal wear and tear.
Dental implants look and feel exactly like natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell they are there. We can match the shape and colour of your existing teeth when creating your final fixed crown or bridge, so it blends seamlessly into your smile.
You may find it easier! As your implants are fused to your jawbone and the replacement teeth securely supported, you shouldn’t have any trouble speaking and may find your speech becomes clearer once the gap in your teeth has been filled.
You should treat your dental implants just like natural teeth and include them in your normal oral hygiene routine. As they are made from artificial materials, your implants are invulnerable to decay or cavities, but you will still need to brush and floss to keep the gum surrounding the implant healthy and problem-free.
