Get your smile back with dental implants
A dental implant isn’t a new concept. In fact, the modern implant was invented by Professor Branemark, a Swedish professor of anatomy in 1975! It’s taken all that time for them to become more commonplace. They are made of titanium and look similar to a screw. Amazingly, they strongly fuse to your bone which allows your dentist to attach an artificial life-like tooth to give you back your smile.
Years of science and research shows they work. They are safe and give you the most reliable tooth replacement currently available.
Our Principal Dentist, Dr Tariq Ali explains Dental Implants

The best alternative to missing or damaged teeth.
Dental implants are small fixtures that are surgically inserted into the jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root. These implants act like an anchor for prosthetic teeth which enables you to have a natural and confident smile.
Consequences of missing teeth.
We understand that missing teeth can be a distressing and uncomfortable situation, not only does it affect your confidence but it can make small tasks in life quite difficult. There can also be some long term problems that arise from tooth loss, such as bone shrinkage, changes to your face shape and wrinkles. The bone in your face will shrink over time in area of your jaw where teeth are missing and if left too long without a tooth, this bone can cause face structure changes.
