You can lose your teeth in many different ways, from accidents to decay. Having even just one or two missing teeth can dramatically affect the way you eat, as well as the way you look.
Dental implants are one of the most effective and reliable methods for tooth replacement and the closest alternative to having your own teeth back.
The natural appearance of the implant means that no-one will ever know you have them, allowing you to eat, speak and smile with confidence – with potentially life changing results.
Acting just like the root of a natural tooth, the implant integrates into your bone structure. It can support crowns, fixed bridges and dentures and will not affect the health or quality of the adjacent teeth, leading to better long-term oral health.
After a full assessment of your teeth and general health, we can start the first stage of treatment. This implant is placed directly into the jaw to take the place of the missing root. This is usually then left for several months to bond with the bone, providing a strong and stable platform. Once healed, replacement teeth can be attached. In some cases, it may be possible to attach replacement temporary teeth at the same time as the implant.
