Dental implants are the closest thing we have to replacing natural teeth. With careful planning and a dedicated approach to the placement and maintenance of your dental implant, this treatment is often a fantastic option for filling any gaps in your smile.
These titanium inserts enable us to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth without the need to drill neighbouring healthy teeth.
An implant is surgically inserted into the jaw under local anaesthetic. While your mouth is healing, you will be provided with a temporary replacement tooth to make sure your smile is unaffected.
After you have healed and the implants have integrated with the bone, we will attach porcelain crowns to the implants. Implants provide a long term solution for restoring your smile when you have missing teeth and can last 15 years or more.
Dr Bolton is highly experienced at planning and performing dental implant procedures and has a great track record of happy patients, with healthy, functioning dental implants.
The key benefits of implants are:
- Dental implants look, feel and can be used like your natural teeth
- Your adjoining healthy teeth are not affected by the placement of implants
- Implants remain fixed in place without the need for adhesives
