What is a dental implant ?

When we mention ‘Implant’ at work, we get two reactions: ‘What is it ?‘ & ‘How much is it?

They are both very sensible questions, so lets find out the answers!


Dental Implants are a replacement for the teeth & roots that you have lost in your jaw. Regardless of whether you have lost one tooth or a number of teeth in various areas dental implants may be the solution.

An implant is a titanium root that is placed into the jaw bone from where a tooth has been lost.

The metal root heals into the bone & onto the surface of this root a crown can be threaded that fits perfectly into your smile. This process can take between 3 to 6 months to complete, allowing you the time to budget for the treatment on a monthly basis.

The benefits of an implant include:-

  • No need to attach the lost teeth to adjacent teeth
  • No need to drill away parts of the adjacent teeth to support the lost tooth.
  • There’s no need to rely on stability or presence of adjacent teeth to place an implant.
  • Because the implant crown emerges from the gum it looks exactly like the neighbouring teeth.
  • Your confidence to chew is regained as the implant feels ‘strong’ in the jaw.
  • Once an implant is placed it is usually there for life!

Dental Implants can replace one tooth or a number of teeth & crowns & bridges can be supported on these meat roots.

Even if you had no teeth a number of dental implants can be placed in the jaw to provide firm & secure support for a denture. Eliminating the worry that your denture may slip when you are out for dinner.

Implant costs start from £2500.00.

An investment that could give you back your smile forever
