A Guide to Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular choice for patients who have missing teeth, often as a result of an accident or injury. Patients who have to wear dentures or a bridge are also suitable for dental implants.

An implant is a thin, metal rod, often made from titanium which acts an artificial tooth root and forms an attachment for a replacement tooth.

Implants are strong, long lasting and indistinguishable from natural teeth. They look and behave in exactly the same way as ‘real teeth’ and can hold a single tooth or several via an overdenture or bridge.

They do require the same amount of care and attention as natural teeth. This means daily brushing and flossing plus regular checks up with the dentist.

  • Can I have an implant?
  • How much do dental implants cost?
  • How long does dental implant treatment take?

These are just some of the more commonly asked question about dental implants.
