Dental Implants

The traditional method of replacing missing teeth has been either with a fixed bridge, which consists of crowned teeth supporting a false tooth, or with a removable denture. Dental implants are rapidly becoming the preferred treatment for anyone seeking the optimal method of replacing missing teeth. There have been amazing developments in this field in recent years.

The benefits of implants are that they:

  • Avoid the embarrassment of loose dentures
  • Look, feel and function like natural teeth
  • Are strong and long lasting
  • Restore your chewing ability with confidence

A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root that is carefully placed into the jawbone on to which is firmly fixed either a false tooth or a denture.

We are pleased that we have invested in both the necessary equipment and training to undertake these procedures for you at Wellington House.

Implants offer you a very real and successful alternative to dentures or bridges and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs with you at any time. Dr Edgecombe has completed postgraduate training in this field and is undertaking further studies, developing his skills and knowledge of this ever-expanding branch of dental care.

Our dedicated implant surgery has been refurbished to operating theatre standard and this allows us to work to the highest protocols of cross infection control.
