Implant Dentistry

Replacing missing teeth is a worthwhile investment

Generally, we are enjoying longer and healthier lives and remaining active well into retirement - which also means general and dental health is even more important as we get older. Tooth loss is sadly still common for many adults and can have a negative impact on eating properly, smiling confidently, and even your sense of wellbeing and overall health. People with missing teeth or loose and uncomfortable dentures will avoid certain foods, sticking to a bland and uninteresting diet which can lack essential nutrients.

Enjoy a strong and stable smile

Dental implants are a great solution for replacing missing natural teeth and have already helped thousands of people worldwide. Choosing dental implants can enable you to enjoy a strong and stable smile.

A small change can make a huge difference

Dental implants are an investment in a long-term solution for your smile.
If implants are looked after well, they could last for many years or even for life.
Implants consist of titanium or zirconia posts which artificially replace your natural tooth root.
You’ll have a strong and stable replacement for natural missing teeth.

Do you have dental phobias or anxiety?

Dental phobias and anxiety are extremely common, so it is really normal to feel nervous or anxious about the thought of dental implant treatment. We are experienced in working with patients with phobias and will always treat all patients with gentle, compassionate, and respectful dental care.

Dental implant treatments can sometimes be extremely complex, and patients may prefer dental sedation - enabling you to feel deeply relaxed and comfortable. You may be able to communicate with your dental team but will be unlikely to remember much if anything about your treatment. This is a widely used treatment option and is provided by skilled and experienced dental professionals.
