Replacing a missing tooth is important for many reasons. Living with a missing tooth, you may feel less confident in the aesthetics of your smile, which in turn could affect your social and professional life. Your oral health could also be at risk as the remaining teeth could move into the gap left behind by the missing tooth, affecting your bite and chewing function.

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots to which a crown, bridge or denture can be fitted securely.

How are dental implants placed?

Dental implants are fitted directly into the jawbone through a minimally invasive surgical procedure conducted under local anaesthetic.

Does dental implant surgery hurt?

Implant surgery is conducted under anaesthetic, so you will not feel any pain during the procedure. The implant dentist at Sarum Dental Practice, Dr Neel Shukla, has many years of experience placing and restoring simple and complex implant cases and practices a compassionate approach to patient care. So, if you’re at all nervous about your implant surgery, we have the skills needed to put your mind at ease and ensure that your treatment experience is as comfortable and as pain-free as possible.

How long do dental implants last?

Though there is no lifetime guarantee, implants are a long-term and predictable treatment option. They are similar to your natural teeth in that, if you look after them with a proper oral hygiene routine, they should last for many years.

How much do dental implants cost?

Implant dentistry is complex, requiring surgical skill and the creation of restorative prostheses to give you back your completed smile. For this reason, dental implants are one of the more costly dental treatments you can have, starting from £2,500. That is why, here at Sarum Dental Practice, we offer our patients an affordable way to access this treatment through monthly payment plans and 0% finance.
