About dental implants

A dental implant is a long-term, discreet solution for replacing missing or failing teeth. Having missing teeth can impact the way you eat and speak, which can knock your confidence.

A dental implant itself is a titanium screw that is placed directly into your jawbone, replacing your missing tooth root. After it’s fitted, the bone surrounding your implant will gradually fuse to it, holding the implant firmly in place. A false tooth (a crown or denture) is then fitted to the top of the implant. The false tooth or teeth are similar in shape, size and colour to your existing teeth, meaning your implant will blend in naturally with your smile.

"Implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. They act as a stand-alone solution, meaning that they don’t rely on the adjacent teeth to be held in place. Implants are placed directly into the bone, and are the closest thing we have to mimic the presence of your own tooth."

Faizan, Regional Clinical Director
