Types of implant:

Full Mouth Implants

This technique has completely transformed our ability to improve 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 a huge benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the operation, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to alternative methods. 

We begin by planning out the operation, and start with a scan to review the patient and find the best area to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the procedure has also decreased greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can walk away with a complete mouth implant or temporary bridge in a single day. The temporary bridge is then substituted with a permanent one after 3-4 months.

Multiple Tooth Implants


Multiple tooth implants are 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. Exchanging these with implants can remove any anxiousness around a moving denture. We are often in a position to implant a bridge to the implants if the missing teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.

Single Tooth Implants

When only one tooth is missing, an implant is often the best solution. Implants are usually stronger and longer lasting that other available choices, and do not have issues live moving or impacting speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone round the implant becomes supported by the implant, stopping further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional force that may cause issues in the future.
What are the advantages 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 do not lead to bone breakdown, 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 should be substituted at least every ten years. implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some changes over time.

No more anxiety: With your new implants you no longer need to worry about feeling down if you want to smile, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without anxiousness around your teeth.

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

Look after your jaw: The spaces left by missing teeth can result in further issues, including damage to your jawbone. If it does not possess the support of the teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its strength. Implants helps encourage bone development and defends your jaw from deterioration.

Look after you teeth by natural means: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a glass, by having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health how you are used to. You can clean, floss and wash your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slide or fallout.

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

Eat without concern: Dental implants are built to be strong and durable, letting you eat your favorite foods without nervousness!

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

No movement: when you speak or eat, you may find that dentures move, and have to be moved back to the right place in your mouth. As your implant is fixed, you will be self-assured about your teeth not moving when you go about your day.

A reliable solution: Dental implants are regarded as one of the most reliable and predictable solutions when fixing missing teeth.
