Dental Implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth.

Providing comfort, function and stability, Dental Implants provide amazing benefits to patients who have suffered tooth loss, whether it be a single tooth, multiple teeth, or indeed a complete set of teeth.
A Dental Implant is a titanium screw that is gently placed directly into the jawbone to act as the missing tooth root. As the mouth heals, approximately two to four months after surgery; the bone and Implant fuse together. Small posts or abutments are then attached to the Implants, which are used to anchor Crowns, Bridges or Dentures.

A Dental Implant looks and functions just like a natural tooth, while having several advantages over other types of tooth replacement. Implants can also be used to improve the stability and retention of loose dentures.

Our patients also experience:

» Improved confidence and self-esteem
» Increased stability within the mouth
» Improved comfort and speech
» Increased preservation of bone
» Decreased gum tissue shrinkage
» Dietary and nutritional benefits
» Convenience – not always having to worry about Dentures
» An aesthetically enhanced smile

Dental Implants have been tried and tested and 95% of modern implants will last for at least 10 years. This is a higher success rate than virtually all other dental procedures. Anyone who is in good health and has teeth missing is potentially a suitable candidate for Dental Implants.
