Dental implants are an increasingly popular option for replacing missing teeth rather than conventional bridges or partial dentures. Titanium rods are inserted directly into the jawbone like the roots of natural teeth.
Dental implants can often be carried out relatively pain free (see our video testimonials) under local anaesthestic by a qualified dental surgeon. This means you are awake throughout the treatment, but the part of your mouth being worked on is completely numb.
DENTAL IMPLANTS CANNOT BE CARRIED OUT BY THE SMILE CENTRE AND CAN ONLY BE CARRIED OUT BY A REGISTERED DENTAL SURGEON, WHICH YOU CAN BE REFERRED TO.
Can I have Denture Implants?
While implant retained dentures are increasingly popular they are not appropriate for everyone. You need to have healthy gums and a sufficient thickness of jawbone to allow the implants to be fitted correctly.
The Smile Centre can fit dentures on to existing dental implants. Please note that the surgical fitting of dental implants or indeed any surgical procedure can only be carried out by a registered dentist. If dental implants have not been surgically placed this can be done by a qualified dental surgeon.
