Implants.

Losing teeth can be a distressing experience; the visible gaps can be embarrassing, and there can be difficulties with eating. Implants are an excellent option when replacing missing teeth. An implant is a fixed, permanent prosthesis which is versatile and can be used in conjunction with crowns, orthodontics and veneers to achieve the perfect smile.

Single tooth implants.

Implants are an excellent option for replacing small gaps caused by single tooth loss. An implant-sized crown is placed to provide a final restoration. We consult with you at every stage so the colour, shape and size are exactly as you need them.

Implant retained bridge.

Implant-retained bridges can be a very good solution to the difficulties created by larger gaps. Bridges may have a single implant with a bridge or may require more implants in order to provide a solid foundation. We can work with gaps as small as two missing teeth or an entire mouth.

Implant retained denture.

A lot of people have suffered with bad fitting dentures, which can be embarrassing and unsightly. Some patients have gone through over 5 dentures in 10 years by the time they come to consider implants as an alternative. Implants can be used to stabilise dentures which are known as over dentures. Magnetic attachments or bars can be placed to the implants which secure the denture in place. Not only does this improve the appearance of patients, it returns the confidence when eating and speaking.

Full implant case.

A full bridge can feel like a fresh start. It can be used for patients wanting to replace their dentures, or if multiple teeth are starting to fail or become decayed and the appearance of the smile is not what it once was. A bridge is a fixed solution (does not need to be removed), that can be placed in the upper and/or lower jaw. The bridge will create a new smile, allow all foods to be eaten and restore all the confidence that can be lost.

Treatment FAQs.

You can have dental implants at any age, as long as the conditions are right. A full and comprehensive assessment is necessary before we would proceed.
Dental implants need time to be placed, and this can vary between three and nine months. This is an average timescale, and is dependent on your individual needs. We may need to do some preparatory work such as extractions or bone grafts to make sure we have the perfect foundation to proceed.
