Restore missing teeth and boost your confidence

Dental implants are a long-term solution to replace teeth which may have become lost due to accidents, tooth decay or gum disease. A dental implant can restore your smile, make it easier to eat again and help you regain your confidence. Implants are generally suitable for most patients.

Dental implants are titanium screws that will replace the missing tooth’s root and will integrate with your jawbone to promote stability and healthy bone growth.

Benefits of dental implants

  • Comfortable

    Comfortable, well-fixed and strong.

  • protect

    Help protect your jaw bone from shrinking and causing premature ageing of your face.

  • Stable

    Minimise movement of your remaining teeth.

  • eat what you want

    Improve your ability to eat any food you choose, particularly if you have been used to dentures moving as you eat.

Implant Treatments

Dental implants can be used to replace anything from a single tooth to a full smile. We offer many implant treatments, including complex full mouth rehabilitations.

Single implants

A single dental implant is one of the most secure and long-term solutions available for a missing tooth in modern dentistry. The implant acts as a solid base for a highly aesthetic crown to be attached on top. The finished restoration functions and looks just like your natural teeth!

Multiple implants

If you are missing more than one tooth, we can use strategically placed implants to restore a larger area of your smile. Implant-retained bridges are highly effective, aesthetic and secure, giving you back your confident smile.


If you have lost most or all of your teeth, or your existing dentures have become loose or uncomfortable, overdentures provide a fantastic secure solution. Carefully placed implants are positioned in your jaw to support a denture and restore a full arch of missing teeth.

Post-treatment care

Your dental implants can be thought of as very similar to your normal teeth, and can be looked after in the same way. You will need to continue daily brushing and regular check ups with your dentist. Visiting the dental hygienist can also be beneficial to the long-term care of your dental implants.


The average price for dental implants can be anything from £2,000 to £29,000, depending on how many implants are required. Full set dental implants are in the higher price bracket, usually from around £10,000. The cost varies based on factors such as the type of implants, the need for additional procedures (like bone grafting), and the specific dental practice.

Dental implants are designed to be a long-term solution and can last 25 years or more with proper care. Their longevity depends on factors like oral hygiene, lifestyle habits, and overall health.

No, eating with full dental implants is not hard. In fact, once fully healed, dental implants function very much like natural teeth. They provide strong, stable support for biting and chewing, allowing you to eat most foods comfortably.

Whether dentures or implants are better depends on individual circumstances. Dental implants are generally considered superior due to their permanence, natural look and feel, and ability to prevent bone loss. However, dentures can be a more affordable and non-invasive option and might be preferred for certain medical conditions or budget constraints.

The recovery time for full mouth implants varies. Initial recovery from the implant surgery typically takes about 1 to 2 weeks, but complete healing and integration of the implants with the jawbone (osseointegration) can take 3 to 6 months. During this period, temporary teeth are often provided until the permanent crowns are placed.

There is no specific ‘best’ age for dental implants, but they are typically recommended for adults whose jawbone has fully developed, usually by their early 20s. Older adults can also benefit from implants, provided they have sufficient bone density and overall good health.

After 25 years, a well-maintained dental implant should still be functioning effectively. However, regular dental check-ups are essential to monitor the health of the implants and surrounding tissues. Components like the crown may need replacement due to wear and tear, even if the implant itself remains intact.

During the initial healing period, it is advisable to avoid hard, crunchy, sticky, or chewy foods that can stress the implants. Examples include nuts, hard sweets, chewing gum, and tough meats. Once fully healed, dental implants allow you to eat a wide variety of foods, though it’s still wise to be cautious with particularly hard or sticky items.

Yes, full mouth implants can sometimes be done in one day, a procedure often referred to as “All-on-4” or “teeth-in-a-day.” This involves placing a full arch of prosthetic teeth on four strategically placed implants. However, not everyone is a candidate for this approach, and a thorough evaluation by a dental professional is necessary.

Yes, dental implants are designed to feel and function very much like real teeth. They are securely anchored in the jawbone, providing a stable and natural-feeling foundation for chewing and speaking. Most patients report that their implants feel indistinguishable from their natural teeth.
