Dental Implants - Huddersfield

Dental implantology is the most advanced treatment available for the replacement of missing teeth with the following major advantages:

What is an implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw which is placed in the upper or lower jaw bone where the natural teeth have been lost.

As the implant is made from pure titanium it ‘integrates’ with the surrounding bone to provide a firm foundation for the replacement of the missing tooth.

Once the implant has integrated with the bone – a process known as osseointegration – it is ready to carry a tooth or other structure. Implants can replace individual teeth or be used to help stabilise poorly retained dentures.

 

Who can benefit?

Whether you have one tooth missing or no teeth at all, dental implants could make a big difference to the way your mouth looks, functions and feels. Implants are considered to be the ‘gold standard’ treatment for missing teeth in many situations.

Available data on early implants has now shown cases functioning successfully for over 25 years. The technology involved in implants has continued to develop and improve even further. Unlike conventional bridge work, implant treatment does not involve destructive procedures to the adjoining teeth therefore avoiding additional stress to these teeth.

How many implants will I need?

This will depend on the problems that you are experiencing. Implants can be used to replace each individual tooth, to replace several teeth supporting a bridge or they can be used to anchor a denture.

What is the cost?

As each person’s requirements are different, the cost will vary depending on the complexity and the number of implants required. After a consultation, a written report detailing the treatment plan and all estimated costs will be provided for you to consider before any treatment begins. Price starts from £1700

As with all of our detailed cosmetic dentistry procedures you will be invited for an initial consultation with our implant dentist during which the best course of treatment will be established and the procedure explained.
