Dental implants

Create the foundation for a lifelong healthy smile with implants in Leeds

Smile confidently with a lifelong implant solution

As your local implant dentist in Leeds, we are delighted to offer this advanced treatment in Horsforth, replacing missing teeth to create lifelong, beautiful smiles. We use the renowned Osstem implants, which are used in over 60 countries worldwide. Made from super-strong titanium, dental implants mimic the function of a tooth root, creating a solid foundation to which a bespoke crown can be permanently attached.

Whether your teeth have been lost due to decay or gum disease, or you’ve experienced the misfortune of a knocked-out tooth, our dental implants in Leeds will restore your smile, your looks and your confidence. Implant surgery is usually relatively minor, though we can offer sedation if required.


Unlimited options that keep you looking younger

Implants are very versatile and can be used to replace a single tooth, a number of missing teeth, or an entire arch. If you are missing all your teeth, you won’t need an implant for every tooth; we can use a minimal number of implants to support a series of dental bridges, or a denture.

As well as allowing you to eat, speak and smile with total confidence, implants play an important role in anti-ageing, too. Because implants support the jaw bone, they stop your natural teeth drifting into your gaps, and prevent bone loss – which in turn means you won’t experience the ageing facial sagging caused by missing teeth.


Make the investment, reap the rewards

Wondering about how much implants cost in Leeds? Ours start at £2,000 per tooth, though this will usually be less in cases where multiple implants are needed. Everyone knows that the upfront cost of implants can be off-putting – which is why we encourage patients to think about the long game. Whereas restorations and dentures will need to be repaired or replaced numerous times over your life, dental implants are, in most cases, a one-off treatment that can last a lifetime with the proper care.



What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a high-tech plug that replaces your tooth root. It’s surgically implanted into the jaw using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, and is made from a super-strong, biocompatible material – usually titanium – to which your jaw bone will eventually bond. Once this has happened, a prosthetic tooth can be screwed onto the implant.

Can anyone have implants?

Implants can only be considered for healthy mouths – so some patients may find that the process of getting implants will first require other dental work, such as gum disease treatment or orthodontics. Make an appointment at Horsforth Dental for an initial consultation to assess your suitability for implants.

How does the dental implant procedure work?

Dental implant surgery is high-tech and minimally invasive. With the help of 3D scanning, an implant can be placed so accurately that it involves the least possible trauma and therefore a swift recovery time. Once the implant has been placed in the jaw, you will need to wait a few weeks for the integration process to take place – this is where your natural bone tissue grows around the implant, securing it in place for life. Once integration has successfully completed, you’ll be able to return to Horsforth Dental for the final fitting of your new tooth.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Dental implants provide the same function, feel and look as natural teeth – so you’ll never need to compromise when it comes to eating, drinking and smiling with complete confidence. In addition, dental implants play an important role in maintaining the structure of your face: their firm position within the jawbone prevents teeth from shifting around and the jaw from shrinking – both of which cause ageing facial sagging.

What are the different options for implants?

Implants can be used for a variety of purposes, replacing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full set of teeth. Implants can also be used to permanently anchor bridges and dentures.

Does implant surgery hurt?

No – implant surgery is usually a completely pain-free procedure and carried out using local anaesthetic or sedation if required. We will make sure you understand exactly what to expect beforehand, and will supply you with a comprehensive aftercare plan.

Are implants safe?

Yes, dental implants are a well-established treatment, supported by over 30 years of clinical evidence and a 95% success rate or higher.

How long does the implant process take?

Dental implants mostly take around 9 months altogether, from the initial assessment to the fitting of the final crown.

How quickly can I go back to work after implants?

Most patients can return to work within one or two days of surgery.
