Dental Implants in Pickering, Scarborough, Malton & North Yorkshire

An implant attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw under the gum tissue. A small titanium fixture may be used to surgically place the implant in the upper or lower jawbone to replace the root of your missing tooth and provide an anchor for a crown.

The success of any bridge or implant depends on its foundation "the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. So it's very important to keep your remaining teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.

Improve your quality of life

Implants in daily life

Missing single tooth

"I broke my front tooth playing sport when I was a teenager and unfortunately my dentist was unable to save my tooth. Having a dental implant made complete sense because I didn't want my other healthy teeth cut down for a bridge. My implant crown is perfect in every way and I am glad I chose this treatment."

Thomas, 20, student

Several missing teeth

"My problems with gum disease started a few years ago and subsequently two back teeth had to be removed. I wanted a replacement that would be as natural as possible and fixed permanently in my mouth. That is why I decided to have implants.
I had some doubts before the operation as I could not imagine the results clearly. However, my worries were unjustified as the operation was painless. I feel very pleased with my new teeth and I can laugh out loude again. On the basis of this experience, I would opt for implants again any time."

Susan, 42, civil servant

Toothless upper jaw

"I used to have constant problems with my full denture when eating and speaking and it often came loose which was very unpleasant. Since my denture has been implant-supported, it stays in place perfectly.

Dental implants have given me a better quality of life."

Hilda, 63, self employed

"Over time my lower denture bcame more and more ill-fitting and relining my denture no longer helped.

I now have a denture supported by implants which stays completely in place. I am very happy with the results and I would really recommend it. I feel like a new person."

Peter, 76, pensioner
