Why choose dental implants?

Dental implants have revolutionised dentistry and give us endless possibilities.They essentially enable us to give you teeth that have long been lost. The finished products look and feel as natural as real teeth and have the strength to last a lifetime

Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, it can affect your speech and your ability to enjoy your favourite foods. Loss of teeth can affect your confidence, your sense of well-being and your oral hygiene can suffer.  Also, when a tooth is lost the bone beneath it begins to shrink and this can cause your face to sink a little and make you appear older than you are. Dental implants may be for you if:

  • You have a gap through a tooth having been lost, knocked out or extracted
  • You have dentures because some or all of your teeth having been removed many years ago
  • You have a crown or bridge that keeps giving you problems
  • You are suffering with loose teeth through decay and gum problems
  • You feel there is little you can do to change your teeth.

Life Changing Treatment

Dental implants produce incredible results and change the lives of patients who have lived and suffered for many years having lost the full and healthy function of their teeth. After treatment they:

  • Love smiling again!
  • Eat and enjoy their favourite foods again
  • Speak without fear of embarrassment
  • Look years younger
  • Have improved oral hygiene and fresh breath
  • Feel vital and confident for the first time in years
  • ENJOY LIFE to the full!

what are dental implants?

A dental implant is a small titanium “screw” which is placed in the jawbone in place of the natural missing tooth using local anaesthetic. Once healed the artificial root acts as a base for fixing individual ‘teeth’ or multi tooth bridge.

Which Dental Implants Do You Use?

How do i prepare for dental implants?

Are they easy to look after?

Simon's Story

Simon chose Alex Jones Dentistry for his Dental Implant treatment & says it has given him back his confidence. See what we can do for you. Book a consultation today!

To say I was apprehensive on the first visit was an understatement, again, the reassurance and professionalism shown from the whole team lessened the fears dramatically. My greatest surprise was how little pain I had to endure after the operation, and how little swelling there was, and how quickly that passed. Personally, the transformation has been brilliant both physically and mentally. First class.

I have had a dental implant fitted by Alex Jones . I am thrilled with the result from initial consultation with Emmer, through each visit I was treated with dignity, respect and well cared for. Every member of staff were kind, friendly and professional at all times.
Mrs Jackie Drinkwater
Following the fracture of an old crown, Alex recommended a dental implant to replace the tooth which was beyond saving. I was a little nervous as I thought the procedure might be a little painful. I can honestly say that I was totally surprised!!
Mr T.J.
Alex was so understanding of my situation and non-judgmental he instantly put my mind at ease and made me comfortable with the procedure. All the way through my treatment Alex and all of the team have been nothing short of amazing. I've retained my confidence, I can eat what I like and I don't hide my smile anymore because Alex made it perfect. Thanks to all for everything you do.
I am so happy with my new smile, Alex and the team have done a superb job! The implant treatment I have had has changed my life and would recommend coming for a chat – the team really put me at ease throughout. Everyone has been fantastic – thank you to all of you!
Mr Roy Field
Just a short note to say a very big thank you for your help and expertise on Friday last week. You and your team “saved my life” by seeing me when you did and in putting me in a position where I could at least have some peace of mind over the weekend. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate what you did.
Mrs R.G.

“It really is the best thing I have ever had done. I cannot praise this practice, Alex and all the staff enough. Alex is a genius!” – Natalie Hodgson 

dental implant options

Single tooth

Replacing a single missing tooth can be a highly successful procedure.

Treatment is highly conservative as it is not necessary to prepare adjacent teeth to support bridgework, and the implant tooth can be looked after just like your own natural teeth.

The dental implant tooth itself is usually made with the use of special computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques to produce beautiful, cosmetic teeth, made entirely out of a strong ceramic material.


Multiple Teeth

Groups of missing teeth can be replaced with bridgework supported by implants.

For example, two dental implants can support a bridge replacing three or four teeth, although more implants may be added if biting forces are heavy, or a larger bridge is required.

Once again, dental implant treatment is highly conservative as it is not necessary to prepare teeth to support bridgework; the implant construction simply replaces the missing teeth without further compromising the remaining healthy teeth.

Full Arch options

Whatever the cause of your missing teeth, everyone deserves to be able to eat and speak properly, to laugh naturally and to feel confident about their appearance. We offer several dental arch implant options to replace a full arch of teeth.

Implant Retained Dentures

Many patients complain about the disadvantages of conventional dentures:

  • Discomfort
  • Having to avoid certain foods
  • Time consuming home care
  • Dentures feeling loose necessitating use of adhesives
  • Feeling self-conscious

Using dental implants we can help you improve your quality of life and find the right solution for you to restore functionality and help improve your smile and restore your overall self-confidence.


Fixed Bridge Work

Typically five to six implants can be used to support full arch fixed bridgework which allows us to replace all the teeth in a single jaw (or both jaws).

Where only limited bone is available we may just use four implants. Where plenty of bone is available more implants may be placed to support a series of smaller bridges or individual teeth in aesthetically challenging situations.

A variety of techniques have been devised to make this treatment extremely straightforward and less invasive.

Teeth In a Day

Teeth in a Day is a revolutionary technique whereby a whole arch of teeth can be replaced for patients who have previously lost their own teeth or currently wear dentures.

For patients who have suffered ill-fitting dentures or mobile, failing teeth for years, the provision of stable, comfortable, natural-looking teeth through dental implants really can restore that self-confidence and vitality that has often been lost.

Zygomatic Implants

We use Zygomatic implants when there is not enough bone for ordinary dental implants. The implants are longer than ordinary dental implants and engage the strong, dense bone that forms the cheekbone.

This means that the implants can be used as an alternative to complex bone grafting operations, making it possible to carry out surgery and provide fixed teeth in one visit.

More Information 

Nothing gives me more satisfaction than to see the delight, and sometimes emotion, on someone’s face when they look in the mirror as their treatment is complete and they see what they have been hoping for, and sometimes more.

It is a privilege to be part of a process which can often be life-changing. I can honestly say I have a true passion for the job that I am fortunate enough to do.

My team are a fantastic group of professionals committed to the standards of excellence and many years of hard work that I am proud to call Alex Jones Dentistry.
