Implants have been used for many years to replace missing teeth and are becoming increasingly popular. Often, other than dentures, alternative treatments to replace missing teeth involve removing healthy tooth tissue and putting extra strain on adjacent teeth. Implants remove the need for this.


An implant can be used to replace one singular tooth (image 1). If several teeth are missing a bridge can be constructed to fit over fewer implants. This will help reduce the cost, without compromising the treatment (image 2).

Dental Implant

When all your teeth are missing in one or both arches, several implants can be placed to support a full arch bridge, which is fixed in place, unlike a denture which has to be removed.


Poorly fitting dentures can have a negative impact on your general health, as many people experience difficulty in eating certain foods, which can lead to a diet which is not properly balanced. This can also make you feel self conscious and not want to put yourself in social situations. 


Although there are many implant brands available, at myFACE dentistry and facial aesthetics we only use brands which are well established and provide a product which looks great, and let's you live life to the full. Book a free consultation with our implant dentist.


Caring for your implants once they are placed is very important to keep them in good condition. You can develop gum disease around an implant, the same way you could a natural tooth. You will need to follow oral hygiene instructions, as given by your dentist and hygienist, and ensure you attend regular dental health check appointments. You can view a video about the best brushing technique to look after your implants here.
