Frequently asked questions

What is the procedure for having a dental implant?


We will first make sure your mouth is healthy to maximise the success of your dental implant. Dental implants are carried out under local anaesthetic so you are awake but completely comfortable throughout the procedure. The dental implant is a small titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone to support a replacement tooth or multiple missing teeth in your mouth. Once it has been placed we will allow your mouth to heal and then attach the tooth.




How long will an implant last?
