Everyone wants a beautiful, healthy smile. Missing teeth can potentially affect everything from the ability to eat to smiling freely. Whether someone has one, or multiple teeth missing, dental implants can be the solution to replace them. Acting as an artificial tooth root, a dental implant is a small titanium or ceramic post that’s placed carefully into the jawbone, creating a strong foundation onto which the final teeth are secured.
An implant mimics a natural tooth but unlike traditional bridgework, it does not require support from adjacent teeth. Implants can also be used to stabilise and support a removable denture.
Before an implant can be placed we will do a thorough examination of your mouth and take a comprehensive medical and dental history. We will then use detailed recordings and three dimensional x rays of your mouth to tailor a treatment plan for you. Following the examination and planning stage, we will organise an appointment to place the implant under local anaesthesia . A crown, bridge or denture is placed onto the implant once it has integrated into the bone.
There have been significant advancements in technology and materials in recent years allowing us to achieve outstanding aesthetic results through implant treatment. We pride ourselves in always staying up to date with developments in the industry, and we have undertaken numerous training courses to ensure we provide the best in this exciting area of dentistry.

Dental erosion is the irreversible loss of tooth structure due to chemical dissolution by acids. Overtime, the softened enamel or dentine begins to wear, resulting in thinning of the tooth structure which in turn can modify the shape and appearance of your teeth and may also lead to sensitivity to temperature.
