Dental implants in Isle of Man
Available at our Private practice on Ridgeway Street
Dental implants may be the solution for your missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium metal rod which acts like the roots of teeth. After being fitted crowns or dentures can be attached them to create natural looking teeth.
Dental implants have several benefits including improving chewing ability, confidence that implanted teeth will not move or loosen, whilst helping to reduce damaging pressure on your remaining natural teeth.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. Compared to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. Because they fit, feel and function like natural teeth, dental implants are quickly becoming the new standard in tooth replacement.
We use a medical-grade titanium implant fixture that, over time, fuses to the living bone cells of the jaw. This union forms a strong and durable anchor for your new teeth, meaning there’s no slippage or other movement (which can sometimes happen with dentures). There are also no problems eating with dental implants, no need to repair them regularly and no more worrying about smiling freely and openly.
Dental implants typically have three parts:
You can use dental implants to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. If you need to restore a full arch, you may be a perfect candidate for the all-on-four treatment. Our surgeons will place four implants and then attach a full arch of teeth, giving the procedure its name (all teeth, only four implants).
