A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. It is fixed into the jaw bone and then a false tooth goes over it. Whether you are suitable for dental implants depends on the condition of the bone in your jaw. This will initially be assessed by the dentist along with your gums and teeth.

If it looks like you may be suitable, we will arrange for a consultation with our implant surgeon. We run regular implant clinics with experienced implant surgeons. They can give you a comprehensive consultation and advise on treatment. They may arrange for a number of special tests to find out the amount of bone still there.

If there is not enough, or if it isn’t healthy enough, it may not be possible to place implants without grafting bone into the area first.

To find out if you would be suitable for dental implants, book a check up with one of our dentists. Once you let them know that you are considering dental implants, they can assess your suitability. Following the check up we can then let you know if you can go ahead with the treatment and book you in for a consultation.
