Do you have a missing tooth or teeth you are looking to replace?

Dental implants are the most successful way of replacing a missing tooth.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw bone to replace a missing tooth.

Once the implant integrates with the bone, then a false tooth in the form of a crown is attached to the implant. These look and act like a normal tooth.

Why get dental implants?

People’s confidence can be severely affected by having broken or missing teeth. It is not an attractive characteristic, and often, people who have missing or broken teeth will avoid smiling in public for fear of embarrassment.

Dental implants can be an effective restorative and cosmetic treatment, which can be used to replace a tooth or multiple teeth; and, also a patient’s self-esteem.

An implant procedure can be used to replace damaged or missing teeth caused by periodontal disease or other factors. It is vitally important to treat affected teeth and fill gaps in the mouth to prevent surrounding teeth shifting positions, causing further damage.

Implants have a number of advantages:

  • Longest lasting tooth replacement option
  • Maintains bone height which would otherwise recede
  • Great aesthetic and functional result
  • Natural-looking – patients forget their teeth were ever missing

At Big Smiles, our fees for implants are half the average price. Our team is all highly-trained and talented, so you can rest assured you are in great hands. We are fully committed to ensuring the complete oral health of all of our patients.

Are dental implants right for me?

Because dental implants are implanted into the jawbone, a patient must maintain healthy gums and adequate bone density to support the implant. For some patients, where bone density and gum health is inadequate, alternative treatments may be a better fit.

When we assess our patients in-house, we do a thorough analysis of individual circumstances so we can recommend the most appropriate treatment options.
