Permanent replacement teeth that look natural
Dental implants are permanent replacement teeth, consisting of a titanium root and a natural looking crown. The root is fitted into your jawbone and allowed to heal before the crown is added to the top. This gives the implant a chance to fuse to the bone.
The result is a secure, artificial tooth, that looks and feels like a natural tooth. Our dentists are highly experienced at restoring implants safely. If you’d like to have an implant surgically placed, we can refer you, after we’ve examined your mouth to determine suitability.

Dental implants have many advantages over living with tooth loss, or wearing traditional dentures. They don’t move in your mouth, you won’t experience any shrinkage of the jawbone and your cheek muscles won’t waste away, causing you prematurely wrinkled lips.
To ensure you are a suitable candidate for dental implants, your jawbone will be assessed. The quantity and quality of the bone present in your jaw is key to effective implants. The procedure itself involves a local anaesthetic, so it’s not painful. A temporary crown will be fitted to the implant, after the healing process has begun and a few months later, your permanent crown will be added.
