dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that a dentist with a special interest in Oral and Facial Surgery places into your jaw. Dental implants are ideal for people in good oral health who have lost one or more teeth.


With diligent patient maintenance, dental implants for missing teeth can last a lifetime.
Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for implants.


Dental implants are implanted into the bone just like a natural tooth.
They are reliable and gain stability to be able to bite, chew and grind like a natural tooth making them a dependable choice of teeth replacement.
They also look and feel like a natural part of your smile.


Issues with teeth can have a significant impact on quality of life. Not only does it give a lack of confidence but can affect wellbeing when smiling, eating and speaking.
Teeth can also have a direct impact on your diet as certain foods can become difficult or impossible to eat.
By replacing even one tooth with a dental implant, it can enable the restoration of a natural smile which not only improves function but improves comfort and confidence enabling a better quality of life.


We are now offering an Advanced Dentistry Referral Service from dental colleagues or from patients themselves for complex dental implant cases.

At Larkham House our sister practice we have the latest CBCT imaging scanner to enable advanced diagnosis for complex procedures and patient care. We aim to see patients within 7 days of receiving the referral.

Please contact us for further details.
