Dental implants really can be life-changing. An unsightly or annoying gap can once again be filled with a tooth, giving you absolute confidence when you smile. Your loose denture can be secured in place, giving you peace of mind to talk and eat once again. That crown which repeatedly falls out can be replaced with a beautiful new tooth imperceptible from your own.

Natural look and function
Can last for decades
Life-changing confidence

Patient Testimonial

I was referred to the clinic via my local dentist for an implant. The service I have received has been excellent. The implant is outstanding and perfectly colour matched. The full procedure from start to finish took 8 months and felt like quite a long event but I now realise that the time frame and the level of craftsmanship delivered was worth the outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I suitable for dental implants?
Most people are a suitable candidate for dental implants, as long as they are generally healthy and have good oral health. However, they are not an ideal option for everyone. We will thoroughly discuss your overall suitability for implant treatment at your initial consultation.
Is dental implant treatment painful?
We use local anaesthetic during dental implant surgery to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure. You won’t be able to feel a thing. After treatment, it is normal to experience some discomfort, and this can be managed with pain relief advised by your dentist. Implant treatment is often less painful than having a tooth extraction, and most patients are able to return to their usual routines the next day.
How long does the dental implant treatment process take?
The whole process, from missing teeth to secure fixed replacements, can take several months. The implant surgery is a relatively quick procedure, but the implants themselves need around 3-6 months to heal and fuse before fixed permanent teeth can be placed. The treatment process will be longer if you need a bone graft or other procedure first, but your new smile will be more than worth it in the end.
Will other people be able to tell I have dental implants?
No, dental implants look and feel exactly like natural teeth. We can match the shape and colour of your existing teeth when creating your final fixed crown or bridge so it blends seamlessly into your smile.
What are the alternatives to dental implants?
If you have one or more missing teeth, you may also consider restoring your full smile with a bridge or denture. These alternatives are less expensive than an implant, but don’t have the same superior stability, aesthetics and versatility. They are also not likely to last as long. We are happy to discuss all the options for replacing your missing teeth and find the best one for you.
Will I find it hard to talk with dental implants?
You may actually find it easier! As your implants are fused to your jawbone and the replacement teeth securely supported, you shouldn’t have any trouble speaking and may find your speech becomes clearer once the gap in your teeth has been filled.
How do I clean my dental implants?
You should treat your dental implants just like natural teeth, and include them in your normal oral hygiene routine. As they are made from artificial materials, your implants are invulnerable to decay or cavities, but you will still need to brush and floss to keep the gum surrounding the implant healthy and problem-free.
