If you have a single missing tooth or multiple gaps in your smile, implants could help to restore your smile, improve your oral health and give you more confidence.
About dental implants
Dental implants are a relatively new treatment for missing teeth and they offer an alternative to dental bridges and dentures. Implants are small screw-shaped devices made from titanium, a biocompatible material that can integrate into the natural bone tissue. The implant is placed inside a pre-drilled socket in the jaw bone and left to integrate in a process called osseointegration. The aim of implant treatment is to take on the supportive role of the tooth root and provide anchorage for a new restoration, which will replace the crown of the tooth. Once the healing process is complete and the new prosthetic is attached, the tooth will look exactly like a natural tooth and you should be able to enjoy the same level of stability and functionality.
Advantages of dental implants
One of the main advantages of dental implants is the versatility of treatment. Implants are compatible with a range of different restorations and this means that they are suitable for most patients, regardless of age and how many missing teeth they have. Implants can be connected to bridges, crowns and dentures, so they may be a solution if you have a single missing tooth, a few gaps or a full arch of lost teeth.
Implants are also built to last and they offer a more long-term solution than dentures and bridges. They also offer improved levels of stability and help to reduce bone loss. Implants are also easy to maintain and they provide very natural and lifelike aesthetics.

Dental implants are among the most exciting innovations in modern dentistry and they can literally change your life. It may sound dramatic to make this statement, but implants really can have a massive difference on the way you look and feel, as well as your ability to carry out essential functions, such as chewing and grinding food.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a modern solution for tooth loss. The idea is that the implant, which is made from titanium and resembles a small screw, replaces the root of the missing tooth. Once the implant has been placed inside a socket in the jaw bone, it will then start to integrate into the bone tissue, ensuring optimum support for the new tooth. Once the integration process is complete, the restoration is attached and this serves to replace the visible part of the tooth.
Implants are a long-term solution for tooth loss and they are also incredibly versatile, which makes them an excellent choice for patients of all ages with diverse dental needs. Implants are compatible with bridges, dentures and crowns, so they can be used in the place of one single tooth or multiple missing teeth.
How long does treatment take?
Implant treatment usually takes between 3 and 9 months. However, we do offer rapid treatment solutions, including All-on-4. When you have your consultation, your dentist can discuss different options with you.
What are the alternatives to implant treatment?
Other options for tooth replacement treatment include dentures and dental bridges. Bridges tend to last up to 15 years, while dentures need adjusting on a regular basis to fit the changing contours of the mouth. Dental implants are the closest match to natural teeth and they last a lot longer. However, they are more expensive.
