Dental Implants

Replace missing teeth with dental implants at Highpoint Dental Clinic, Highgate

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts with specially activated surfaces. They are placed (implanted) in your jawbone to function in a similar way to a natural tooth root. Your bone grows onto the implants in a process called osseointegration. After a few months the implants will form a permanent part of your body.

Are implants safe and how long do they last?

Present day implants are based on scientific evidence and have shown a success rate of more than 90%. We believe that implants are one of the most predictable forms of dental treatment, and in most cases a life-long solution.

Might I be suitable for implants?

At your initial consultation X-rays will be needed to see if you have sufficient quality and quantity of bone and a detailed medical history taken. Some medical conditions can affect the bone growing onto the implant and will need careful assessment. In general most people are suitable candidates for implants.

Single Tooth Implant

Single tooth replacement

If a single tooth has been lost due to an accident a dental implant can provide a reliable long-term solution in many cases. This treatment does not require any cutting of the adjacent teeth – such as would be the case with a traditional bridge.

Multiple Teeth Implant

Multiple teeth

Dental implants can also be used to support multiple teeth. This usually involves the placement of two implants, which are used to support a fixed bridge.

Full Arch Implants

Full arch

As an alternative to a denture it is possible to replace all the teeth in an arch, anchored by several implants. The number of implants required is dependent on the clinical assessment of each individual case.



A loose fitting denture is a common problem for thousands of people. Securing dentures using dental implants restores chewing function and reduces irritation of the gums, leading to an enhanced quality of life. The additional support and stability gives the wearer confidence to eat what they want and smile and laugh without being self-conscious.
