Just imagine having a new set of teeth that either clip into place or even completely fixed in place, almost like having your own teeth back!
If you opt for dental implants your full denture can literally ‘press stud’ into place with as little as two implants.
There are also options that can allow a full set of teeth to be fixed in place on as little as four implants.
If you wear a partial denture implants can often be used to replace your missing teeth with new fixed teeth
No more loose dentures!
We work very closely with a local dentist who places implants and will assess whether implants are possibility for you.
A dental implant is most easily described as a titanium screw that is placed within your jaw to replace the root of a missing tooth. You don’t need one implant for each missing tooth, in fact as we have already said a lower denture can often be held in place by just two implants!
The dentist who places the implants will advise you on the best options for you and we will jointly give you an accurate estimate of costs. Although this is higher than for conventional dentures patients often describe their implant treatment as being life changing!
