What is a Dental Implant?

A Dental Implant is a titanium post that supports a dental crown to replace a missing tooth.

Why would I choose to have a Dental Implant?

  • To permanently replace missing tooth roots following extraction, so that a new tooth can be fitted.
  • To fill gaps in the mouth.
  • To avoid the need for dentures.

What are the benefits of a Dental Implant?


  • They behave like a normal tooth in strength and function.
  • Reduces the strain on neighbouring teeth, acting as a support structure and permanent foundation for crowns, bridges & dentures.
  • Improved speech and ease of eating, due to permanent tooth positioning and no gaps in mouth.
  • Improved comfort as they fuse with your bone, becoming part of you.
  • By helping to keep your jaw bone strong and preventing jaw bone loss, they can help to preserve and support your facial structure.
  • Natural looking teeth that sit flush to the gum line.
  • Confidence in your smile.
  • Improved appearance and self-esteem.
  • A permanent procedure, anchored to the jaw bone, unlike removable denture.
  • No need for neighbouring teeth to be cut down or removed.
  • Improved oral health as more of your own teeth are left intact and implants allow for easier access between your existing teeth, which improves your oral hygiene.
  • They have the potential to last a lifetime with the right oral health care.
  • Easy to maintain, requiring the same care as natural teeth.
