Types of implant:

Full Implants

This technique has completely evolved our ability to improve a full mouth of teeth, and we now able to install fixed teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is a huge advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to alternative methods. 

We start by planning out the procedure, starting with a scan to review the patient and discover the best location to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the procedure has also improved greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can leave with a full mouth implant or temporary bridge on the same day. The non-permanent bridge is then substituted with a long term one after 3-4 months.

Multiple Tooth Implants


Multiple tooth implants are being used for patients with several missing teeth missing, which can cause significant issues such as not having the ability to chew food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Upgrading 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 missing teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.

Single Tooth Implants

When one tooth is missing, an implant is usually the best answer. Implants are usually more robust and longer lasting that other options, and do not have issues live moving or impacting on speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone surrounding the implant becomes reinforced by the implant, avoiding further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional force that may cause issues in the future.
What exactly are the advantages of dental implants?

The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other solutions, a dental implant feels and will fit like a natural tooth, and do not lead to bone break down, have an impact on smiling or hinder other activities that other solutions do.

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

Forget about anxiety: Together with your new dental implant you no longer need to get worried about feeling down when you laugh, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without stress around your teeth.

Keep your face shape and laugh: Unfortunately, missing teeth can impact your face, and can affect how your laugh looks. Dental implants help keep your natural, beautiful face and smile.

Look after your jaw: The areas left by missing teeth can lead to further issues, including your jawbone. If it does not contain the support of an teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its strength. Implants help to encourage bone development and defends your jaw from deterioration.

Look after you teeth the natural way: Instead of having to keep your teeth in a glass, by having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health the way you are being used to. You can clean, floss and clean your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slip or fallout.

No problems speaking: dentures can take some getting used to, and may affect the way you speak as well as your capability to pronounce words. As the implant directly replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.

Eat without stress: Dental implants are created to be strong and durable, letting you eat your favorite foods without stress!

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

No slipping: when you talk or eat, you may find that dentures move, and have to be moved back in to the correct put in place in your mouth. As your implant is fixed, you can be comfortable about your tooth not moving when you are about your entire day.

A reliable solution: Dental implants are regarded as one of the most reliable and predictable solutions when replacing a missing tooth.
