Dental Implants

Do you have a missing tooth that is visible when you smile?


A dental implant allows single or multiple teeth to be replaced – unlike a bridge there is no additional force placed upon adjacent teeth.


Have you just had a tooth extracted and would like it replacing?


The best time to start the process of having a tooth replaced is 8 weeks after it has been extracted. From this point forward the level of the bone starts to decrease, possibly making it more difficult and expensive to place an implant.


Would you prefer not to have to wear a denture?


It may be possible to replace strategic teeth with implants so you no longer need to wear a denture at all.


Does your denture continually move around and are you worried it will drop down at an embarrassing moment?


Dental implants can be used to secure dentures so they do not move around – they simply clip in place. This leaves no room for potential embarrassment.


Dental implants are often the best solution to replace missing teeth. They have several key advantages over other possible treatment options:


  • They are the closest thing to a natural tooth.
  • They do not place additional strain and stress on adjacent teeth.
  • They are fixed in place with a very low risk of becoming loose or falling out.
  • Nothing lasts forever, but they are a predictable and long term solution.


Why choose us for your dental implant

Our clinicians are hand picked and have post graduate qualifications in placing implants. Most importantly, between them they have placed hundreds of implants with very high success rates.


We use only the very best implants and the most highly skilled technicians to make the implant crowns so a natural looking result is assured.


As with all our treatments it is possible to spread the cost over a number of months – interest free.


If you would like to book an implant consultation with one of our experienced clinicians please just call or e mail our reception team. The cost of an dental implant assessment appointment is £80.00.


What can I expect at an implant consultation?


Our team will listen to you.


Once they are happy that they understand what you would like to achieve they will complete a full assessment which will include two dimensional x rays of the implant site.


On completion they will advise you on any different treatment options, including the advantages and disadvantages. They will take time to explain the procedure to you – so you understand what will happen at future appointments. A full written quotation will be provided.

Mr X came to Ruairi unhappy with the appearance of his teeth, he found himself not smiling in public or for pictures and this impacted on his confidence.


He was missing a front tooth – this was replaced with a dental implant.  Dental implants in many cases are the best option for replacing missing teeth, and they are the closest thing that we can provide to a natural tooth.  The implant used, as with all our implants, was made by Straumann, a Swiss manufacturer who produce the highest quality of dental implant. 


Ceramic crowns were used to improve the appearance of the front teeth. As you can see from the final picture, it is no surprise that our patient was delighted with the result; he now smiles with confidence.
