Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They are used as a foundation for either fixed or removable replacement teeth which will blend in with your natural teeth. There are many different benefits to fitted with dental implants. This include:

A better appearance

Dental implants are designed to look just like your existing teeth. This means they have a natural appearance and will feel just like your other ones too.

Increased comfort

Removable dentures can often be uncomfortable and painful. As dental implants are designed to fuse with existing bone, this discomfort can be avoided.

No more inconvenience

Dentures require the use of an adhesive or some kind of paste to hold them in place. They can also be embarrassing as well as time consuming. As dental implants are permanent there is no need to spend time or energy on these tasks anyone.

Talk confidently

Another problem with removable dentures is that they can move within the mouth resulting in slurring words and other speech problems. Dental implants remove this threat meaning as there is no chance that teeth can slide and affect how clearly you can speak.


Dental implants are incredibly hard-wearing and if looked after correctly they can last a lifetime meaning complete peace of mind about your teeth.

Enjoy food again

Removable dentures can make eating certain foods difficult due to problems with movement whilst chewing. As dental implants don’t move during meal times, you will be able to enjoy foods that were once troublesome without having to worry about any slipping or discomfort.

Raised self-esteem

As a result of all the benefits outline above, our patients consistently tell us how having dental implants has increased their levels of self-esteem. Having a smile transformed as well as being able to speak and eat more easily has led to them feeling happier within themselves and being more confident at work as well as amongst family and friends.
