Are you having difficulty or discomfort with a badly fitting denture?
Do you feel that missing teeth are causing your face to look older - sunken and hollow?

Single or Multiple Implants
To replace a missing tooth, a titanium root shaped implant is placed into the gum where your natural root would have been located. After a short healing period, a porcelain replacement tooth is bonded to an abutment (or connection) placed into the titanium root.
The implant procedure itself is minimally invasive and is performed here in the practice under local anaesthesia.
We also ensure that your jaw and bite is balanced after implant placement by using our T-Scan process as shown below:-
During treatment, a local anaesthetic is used with the dental wand® if required to offer almost painless injections.
After treatment a mild painkiller may be taken if there is any discomfort, but this will soon pass and a soft diet can be eaten within hours of leaving the dental surgery.

Implants can be placed to secure a denture.
The denture can be fixed to the implants with a 'press stud' attachment, providing you with a snug and solid fit.
