What does this mean for you as a patient?

It means we can provide more options in house, saving you travelling too far for your treatments and enabling our team to provide more of the very best 21st century dental treatments.


What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a titanium metal rod which is placed into the jawbone. It is used to support one or more false teeth. In practice, both the false teeth and their supporting rod are known as ‘implants’.


How long does treatment take?

Your dentist will be able to give you a rough timetable before the treatment starts.

Usually the permanent teeth are fitted 6 to 9 months after the implants are put in, but many implant systems now allow the time to be as short as 3 months.

Some teeth can now even be fitted at the same time as the implants (known as immediate implants) but you should check with your dentist to see whether these are suitable for you.


Have further questions?

Any questions you may have, just ask one of the team or ask your dentist next time you come in to see your dentist.
