Why should I get Dental Implants?


A Dental Implant is a small titanium screw which replaces your tooth root. It’s gently and precisely placed into your jawbone by your dentist. Dental implants usually take 10 to 16 weeks, this involves your jawbone fusing to the implant. Once the implant is fused, a crown (false tooth) can be fitted, or a bridge with three false teeth can be placed over two implants.

If you have failing or missing teeth, Dental implants could be the perfect solution for you!

Our three step process makes it simple and quick to get your new smile…but what exactly happens!

Step 1 : Firstly, you will need to come for a FREE Implant consultation, this helps you understand more about the process, whilst also allowing our Dentist, Dr Jamil, to take you through your personalized treatment plan and exactly how much the treatment will cost, so you have all the information before you decide to go ahead with treatment.

Step 2: If you decide to go ahead with treatment, we will need an up to date CT scan, you can source this yourself, or if you want us to source it for you we will subtract the cost from your final treatment cost, meaning you get a implant consultation and a CT scan…for FREE!


Step 3: Get your new smile! We will fit your implants, which can take a couple of hours, then

 that’s it! You will need to come back after a few months in order to get any crowns or arches fitted.


Dental Implant questions we get asked….a LOT!

  • Does it Hurt?

The procedure is relatively straight forward and can usually be done under local anaesthetic. You may experience discomfort and you are likely to be given painkillers after the surgery to help with any pain you may experience. However, in general, most patients report that the procedure really wasn’t painful at all — certainly much less than expected.


  • How long do Implants last?

As implants are similar to natural teeth, if they are looked after they should last for many years but there is no lifetime guarantee. Once integrated and functioning, you have in excess of a 90% chance of any implant still performing fine after 25 years. Therefore implants are a long term and predictable treatment option.
