Types of implant:

Full Mouth Implants

This method has totally transformed our ability to change a full mouth of teeth, and we now have the ability to install fixed teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is an enormous advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the operation, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to traditional methods. 

We start by planning out the operation, starting with a scan to review the patient and find the best location to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the procedure has also improved greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can leave with a full mouth implant or short-term bridge in a single day. The temporary bridge is then changed with a permanent one after 3-4 months.

Multiple Tooth Implants


Multiple teeth implants are being used for patients with several missing teeth absent, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew food properly. This can cause real stress in day-today life. Updating these with implants can remove any stress around a moving denture. We are regularly able to implant a bridge attached to the implants if the absent teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.

Single Tooth Implants

When a single tooth is absent, an implant is often the best answer. Implants are usually more robust and more durable that other choices, and don"t have issues live slipping or affecting speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone round the implant becomes supported by the implant, protecting against further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional loading that could cause issues in the future.
What exactly are the benefits of dental implants?

The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other solutions, a dental implant feels and fits just like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone breakdown, impact smiling or hinder other activities that alternative solutions do.

A long-term fix: More traditional options such as tooth-supported bridges generally last 5-7 years, and even with proper care should be changed at least every ten years. implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some adjustments over the years.

No more anxiety: With your new dental implant you no longer require to worry about feeling down when you smile, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without stress around your teeth.

Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, absent teeth can impact your face, and can affect how your smile looks. Implants help to retain your natural, beautiful face and smile.

Look after your jaw: The spaces left by absent teeth can result in further issues, including harm to your jawbone. If it does not contain the support of an teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its strength. Implants helps encourage bone growth and protects your jaw from deterioration.

Look after you teeth the natural way: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a cup, by having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health how you are being used to. You may brush, floss and clean your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slip or fall out.

No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and could affect how you speak as well as your capacity to pronounce words. As the implant directly replaces your teeth, this is something you don"t have to worry about.

Eat without worry: Implants are built to be strong and durable, letting you eat your favourite foods without anxiousness!

No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, which means that as long as you clean it and get regular checkups you shouldn"t have any problems.

No movement: when you speak or eat, you might find that dentures move, and need to be moved back in to the right put in place in your mouth. As your new implant is fixed, you can be confident about your teeth not moving when you go about your day.

A trusted solution: Implants are regarded as one of the very most reliable and predictable solutions when fixing a missing tooth.
