Dental implants are an advanced method of replacing a missing tooth or multiple teeth and will restore your ability to taste, eat, smile and laugh without discomfort or compromise.
The procedure involves placing an artificial tooth ‘root’ in the jaw bone, to which a new, tailor made tooth can be attached.
Our dentists at Mansion House Dental Practice agree that there is no better way to recreate the look, feel and permanence of a real tooth. Using the latest technology and techniques mean that dental implants involve relatively minor surgery.
The benefits of dental implants
Dental implants not only restore tooth function, they give you back your smile – and it’s this emotional factor that makes implants such a popular treatment.
Dental implants are fixed and permanent and do not carry the risks of damage and breakage associated with other forms of restorative dental work.
Dental implants allow you to eat and drink what you want, when you want – so they’re a great alternative to dentures.
Because dental implants continue to support your jaw bone, they maintain your facial structure and help provide a beautiful natural looking smile.

Dental implants are post surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone to replace missing natural teeth or to support a full set of dentures. They are made of titanium (a strong, lightweight metal) and other materials.
Treatment will depend on your personal case and usually takes 3 to 6 months.
Implants offer firm support to natural teeth and have many benefits, including:
- Implants will not slip or shift in your mouth. This is very important for eating and speaking normally.
- Implants feel more natural than removable partial or conventional complete dentures because of their secure fit.
- A single tooth implant is a stand-alone unit and does not involve treating the teeth next to it.
- Implants help to preserve the bone after teeth are lost or removed.
- Implants are a good value. They may seem like a more expensive option at first, but they can last a lifetime if you take good care of them.
