A dental implant is a tiny screw made of a biocompatible titanium material, which acts as a prosthetic tooth root and ensures your dental restoration is stable.
Your dentist will begin by taking a full scan of your mouth to ensure you are a candidate for the dental implant procedure.
Then your dentist will place your implant, using a local anaesthetic, to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Once inserted into your jaw, the implant will begin to fuse with the surrounding bone.
Following your healing period, your implant will have fully assimilated into your jawbone and is ready to be covered with a dental crown.
Dental implants are a popular solution for missing tooth replacement because they look, feel, and function like a natural tooth, and with proper care can last a lifetime.

Very pleased with Elm Dental Surgery! For over 10 years - excellent care. Professional and Friendly
I've been scared of the dentist for a very long time, but toothache forced me to make an appointment. A friend recommended Elm House to me and I'm so glad she did. The dentist I saw today was so patient and kind, explaining everything perfectly. Actually all the staff were great, including the receptionists. I will definitely go back and I will be recommending to my friends and family. Thank you Elm House, my faith has been restored.
