Using Implants to replace teeth

These are seen as the gold standard of tooth replacement. The missing tooth root is replaced with a cylinder of titanium. The jaw very quickly fuses to the replacement as bone cells grow onto the surface. After a few weeks the implant has integrated and a crown can be attached to the inside of the cylinder.

Like bridges, this solution functions and looks like natural teeth with the advantage that it is stronger and longer lasting with none of the disadvantages of needing to reduce the size of the surrounding teeth.

Implants are more expensive in the short term but can work out at a similar price when considered over the long term. A single implant will typically cost between £2000 and £2500.

Other considerations

Although the implant will last a very long time, the crown on top may need to be replaced.
