Implants are one way of replacing missing teeth. They are an alternative to bridges and partial dentures, and have the advantage of not requiring the support of remaining teeth.

A titanium post is planted into the jaw to simulate the root of the lost tooth. Once this post has 'taken' into the bone, a crown is placed on top of it. This is matched in shape and shade to the missing tooth.

Implants may be used to support fixed bridgework where several teeth are missing.

The placement of implants requires specialist treatment and we offer this treatment at our clinic.
