Dental Implants

If you find yourself clamping a hand over your mouth to disguise unsightly gaps in your smile or you are fed up with ill-fitting dentures sliding around, then our natural looking implants may offer the perfect solution to your missing teeth misery.

Not only do implants fill in your smile and enhance your confidence, they can also improve how you eat and speak, positively change your facial shape, reduce the loss of bone density and ensure any existing teeth stay where they are.

Implants are tiny titanium posts that are carefully placed in the jawbone to provide a firm foundation for replacement teeth, such as crowns or bridges. They are made from titanium as it is a very durable metal and so well tolerated by the body that the posts eventually fuse with your bone, effectively becoming replacement tooth roots.

Treatment steps

  • First, we assess how your teeth fit together, your oral health and the volume of your jaw bone. If you don’t have sufficient bone density to support implants, we may suggest a grafting procedure prior to treatment with implants.
  • Following assessment and the formulation of a treatment plan, we will then carefully insert the implants using a minor procedure.
  • Over the next few months, these implants will fuse with the bone.
  • Once they have fully settled in and successful healing has taken place, you will be ready to have your replacement teeth put in place.

Implants offer an effective, long lasting way to sort out an incomplete smile but they do need looking after, so make sure you brush regularly and clean in between teeth with floss or interdental brushes. You will also need to come and see us for routine dental assessments so we can check up on your implants, as well as your natural teeth.
