What is an Implant?
Dental implants involve replacing the root of the tooth with a titanium post with a crown on top to replace your missing tooth. Specifically moulded to match the shape, shade and size of the tooth it’s replacing.

Dental implants have been designed to make patients feel normal again and with advances in technology the success rates are extremely high.

Dental Implants FAQ
What’s the first step?
Please call us for a free initial chat with one of our team members or if you would like to book directly to see one of our implantologists let us know.
At our first meeting, we’ll discuss the result you hope to achieve with your dental implant and work towards putting a treatment plan together for you.
At your consultation, please do let us know any and all questions you have. We want you to be absolutely sure this is right for you.
At this meeting, we’ll carry out a comprehensive examination taking X-rays as required to get the fullest possible picture of your mouth.
We may discover that you may need additional scans/treatment prior to the dental implant to make it possible. We may recommend that you need:
- A cone beam CT scan
- A bone expansion (if your jaw bone is too narrow for an implant to be fitted)
- A bone graft (to strength the area of your bone that will receive the implant)
- A sinus lift (this is for upper jaw implants where your sinus may need to be moved upward to create space for the dental implant)
We then fit your implant
We’ll place your dental implant into the area where you have lost your tooth. That replaces the root of your lost tooth. It usually take 3 months for your implant to be fully integrated with the surrounding bone and 6 months for the area to heal if a bone graft is done. Immediately placed and loaded implants can be done but the suitability needs to be assessed by our implantologist.. During this time a temporary replacement for your missing tooth/teeth can be made.
We take an impression for your new tooth
When the area is ready we take an impression of your mouth. This assists us in selecting just the right shape and size of crown we’ll attach to the implant. It’s at this point we also make sure the shading is consistent with the rest of your mouth and your overall appearance in general.
The final fitting
When your new tooth has been manufactured in the laboratories of our trusted and regulated suppliers, they send it back to us. At the point, we fixed the tooth to your implant permanently.
Start your dental implant consultation with us secure in the knowledge you’re dealing with a fully-qualified, highly-experienced, and patient-focused team.
