A single dental implant is a permanent replacement tooth that consists of a titanium root implanted securely into the jaw, with a natural-looking crown attached to the top. It looks and acts just like a real tooth. Your smile doesn’t have to suffer just because you’ve lost a tooth. Neither do your eating habits. Your implant will ensure you can eat and speak as normal.
Implants not only improve the look of your smile when you lose teeth, but also restore your jaw health. Without tooth roots to stimulate it, the jawbone can weaken. However, implants perform the same function and, in this way, maintain jawbone strength and health.Book appointment
The days of holding your dentures in place with suction are long gone! Dental implants are securely anchored to your mouth and designed to fuse with your jawbone. They’re such a safe and effective replacement for your missing teeth, that they look and act just like natural teeth. Once you’ve got used to them, they’ll feel just like natural teeth too.
Our experienced implant expert can help restore your smile and smile confidence!

As long as your jawbone is healthy enough to withstand the bone preparation procedure work that implants demand, you should be a suitable candidate for a dental implant. For a minimally invasive implant procedure, it’s important you come and get an assessment as soon as you can, following loss of a tooth.
They are usually very durable and can last a lifetime.
You’ll be given an anaesthetic beforehand to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible when the implants are fitted. A sedative for nervous patients may also be possible.
Dental implants are very safe. Fitting them is a well-established, routine procedure, that we perform frequently. Once secured in your mouth, the implants won’t fall out, and unlike real teeth, they won’t decay. Plus they play a part in preventing your jawbone from the atrophy that can occur when natural teeth are lost.
Many studies have proved that people who smile more are happier and enjoy more career success. Your dental implants will not only restore your smile, but also your smile confidence! Implants are a secure and safe option compared to traditional dentures, plus they offer health benefits for your jawbone. It’s worth knowing that by maintaining a strong jawbone through dental implants, you’ll prevent your face from ageing prematurely.

It’s vital that you visit us as soon as possible after losing your teeth. The quicker you can get to us, the less likely it is that you’ll require the more invasive procedure to have an implant fitted. During your consultation with us, we’ll assess the health of your jaw and be able to answer any questions you have about the treatment. Once we’ve worked out the best way forward regarding how to fit your dental implant, we’ll be able to give you a date for your treatment.
You’ll receive anaesthetic before the procedure to ensure it’s as painless as possible. The implant will then be fitted and the gum stitched. A temporary crown will be attached to the implant while it settles and the gum heals.
Once you have dental implant fitted with its temporary crown in place, we’ll advise you of how to best look after it while the gum heals. If you have any problems before the permanent crown is fitted, we’ll be able to help you.
