“Professional, caring, reassuring and understanding”.
This is direct feedback from previous and current patients in describing their own personal experiences with dental implants.
Dental implants have revolutionised how one or more missing teeth can be replaced and used in numerous ways to provide an aesthetic, stable, long-term solution.
Dental implants are replacement teeth that are custom-made for the individual. They are usually made from titanium, and the implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone. This then fuses with the surrounding bone to provide a firm foundation to support the replacement teeth.
You may need dental implants for the following reasons:

Dental implants are designed to feel and function like natural teeth. They are surgically placed in the jawbone and fuse with the bone over time, creating a stable and permanent foundation for the replacement teeth. As a result, you will be able to eat, talk and laugh without having to worry about your new teeth falling out or moving.
Dental Implants are long-lasting and generally last for 15-20 years, although this will vary from person to person depending on how they look after their new teeth.
Dental implants are designed to look and feel like natural teeth. They are custom-made to match the colour and shape of your existing teeth, making them blend in with your existing teeth seamlessly. They are excellent for helping to improve your appearance and boosting your self-confidence.
Your jaw bone requires stimulation to stay healthy and strong, so when your teeth are healthy, the roots transmit the force of chewing and biting into your jaw bone, which stimulates the bone and keeps it healthy. However, once you lose a tooth, the root is gone, and the pressure and force are not transmitted into your jaw bone any more which can result in resorption, resulting in the bone slowly weakening and deteriorating.
Dental implants help with bone loss because they act as an artificial root, and once healed, it will transmit the force of everyday chewing, smiling and biting into your jaw bone. This prevents the bone from deteriorating further and can strengthen it.
Bone loss can give people missing teeth a sunken, ageing appearance around the mouth that can impact the structure of the whole face. Dental implants can help preserve your facial structure and strengthen your jaw bone.
Missing teeth may affect how you feel about smiling, and your new teeth will give you the confidence to smile. Also, you won’t have to worry about your new teeth moving when talking, laughing, or eating, as you may when you have dentures.
They are easy to care for because they require the same care as a natural tooth, such as brushing and flossing twice daily, regular dental check-ups and routine dental hygienist appointments. However, it is important to remember that just because dental implants aren’t made from organic materials, they still need to be looked after similar to how your natural teeth would. Your new dental implants can still attract plague and tartar, gum disease and infections without the correct care.
Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance, making them a great long-term solution to tooth loss.
A worry for patients is that they will not be able to eat regular foods after having dental implants. However, this isn’t the case because once the dental implants are stable, you should not have any problems eating and drinking.
Dental implants are a popular option for people who need to replace missing teeth efficiently and are looking for a long-lasting solution. Candidates for dental implants typically include individuals who:
Candidates for dental implants should have good oral health, which means they should have healthy gums and a strong jawbone to support the implant.
Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. However, you may need several implants to support a dental bridge or dentures if you have multiple missing teeth.
Candidates for teeth implants should have enough bone density in the jaw to support the implant. If you have experienced bone loss due to gum disease or tooth extraction, you may need bone grafting before getting an implant.
Dental implants are a safe and effective procedure, but they are not suitable for everyone. Candidates should be in good overall health and not have any medical conditions that could interfere with the healing process.
After getting teeth implants, candidates should be committed to good oral hygiene to ensure the long-term success of the implant. This includes brushing, flossing regularly, and visiting the dentist for checkups and cleanings.
Firstly, you will have an implant consultation with our dental practitioner. They will thoroughly assess the condition of your teeth, surrounding tissue and general health to create a tailor-made treatment plan.
You will need necessary X-rays and possible CT scans to see how your teeth fit together, your oral health and the quality of your jaw bone. If we discover you have insufficient bone to support implants, you may need an additional bone grafting procedure.
We can also give you an estimated procedure cost, and you will be able to ask any questions you may have.
You will be given local anaesthetic to numb your mouth or IV sedation, this will mean you won’t feel any pain or discomfort throughout the procedure. Next, our practitioner will make a cut in your gums so that the implant can be placed into the jawbone in the location of the missing tooth. Then you may have to wait a few months for your implants to integrate. Once the implants have fully healed, replacement teeth are attached to the firm fixtures. These are put in position, either permanently or so they can be removed for cleaning.
It is recommended to rest until the effects of the local anaesthetic have worn off; this could take several hours. If you have an IV sedation, you won’t be able to drive and will need somebody to take you home.
We recommend only eating soft foods for at least a week following the treatment. If you are suffering from discomfort, taking over-the-counter medications such as paracetamol or ibuprofen will help ease your pain.
Our dental practitioner will advise you on how to look after your new teeth and answer any questions. We will also book appropriate check-ups to ensure your implants heal properly and that your new teeth settle in as expected.
After your appointment, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us, and one of our dental team will be happy to help you.

Contact us for a price for a full set of dental implants.
The implant peg is made from titanium. A material accepted by the body, meaning the implant can effectively act as substitute tooth roots.
The dental prosthesis is a custom-made crown, bridge or denture made from acrylic (plastic), nylon or metal.
Dental implants tend to last between 10-30 years, this will depend on how you look after your dental implants.
After the implant is in place, some pain from swelling and bruising will occur. The healing period is often around a week.
Temporary crowns/dentures will be placed until the permanent ones are put in 2- 6 months after. This gives the implant time to fuse with the jaw bone and ensures a tight, long-lasting fixture.
It is recommended that smoking is avoided during the healing process to reduce the risk of infection.
The short answer is yes, you can have dental implants after your first trimester. Some Dentists will recommend waiting until after the pregnancy due to the radiation from x-rays.
Complications are rare during dental implant surgery, but with any surgical procedure, there are risks. These will be made clear to you before surgery. Possible complications can be:
The risk of these can be reduced by choosing the right dentist to carry out the surgery, having good oral hygiene and following your dentist’s instructions for care following the surgery.
Attending regular check-ups can also minimise the risk of complications and ensure your implants last for many years to come.
If you experience any of these symptoms after surgery, you should contact your dentist:
