An implant is used as a replacement for the missing root of the tooth and is inserted into the jawbone to act as a support for a crown; this gives the appearance of a tooth being present.

Dental implants are beneficial for many reasons; not only do they restore your smile, they can help improve speech and oral hygiene as well as making it easier to chew, boosting the patient’s confidence. 

Options include: 

Conventional implants which are usually used when the patient has just one missing tooth.

Partial implants, which are usually considered when the patient is missing more than one tooth.

Immediate implants, also known as “teeth in a day”, which can be considered if the patient has sufficient

primary bone contact and primary stability; the required quantity and quality of bone at the implant site; and the dentist can be confident of the correct pace of bone formation around the implant.



DAY 1: Placement of the titanium screw.

DAY 7: Removal of the stitches.

DAY 90 (at least*): Crown replacement.

*We will always aim to finish the treatment over three months. In some cases – and depending on your own personal circumstances – the dentist may recommend a longer course of treatment, perhaps lasting up to a year. 

However, you will never leave the clinic without teeth. Temporary dentures will be fitted to restore aesthetics and function. 


The same process is used as in conventional implant treatment.
