dental implants

A long-term option

A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of the tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.


If you look after your implants like your normal teeth and go for regular maintenance appointments, they will last as a long-term option.


Treatment and aftercare

Implants are placed during a simple local anesthetic in our dental surgery by highly skilled and qualified dentists. 


Once the implant has been placed we will give you instructions on how to look after it, and will give you some painkillers for the discomfort you may feel in the following days.

The process of dental implants

After your new dental implants have been placed, the bone in your jaw needs to grow onto them and fuse to them before we can fit your false teeth. This usually takes a few months. 


You may opt to look into a temporary denture in the meantime, or you can continue to wear your full dentures if you have them. They will need altering first, however, and a healing cap will be put onto the implant to protect it.
