What are dental implants?
Dental implants provide a permanent solution to tooth loss. We can manufacture a perfectly tailored crown, which will connect to the implant. They are natural-looking, Artificial teeth, consisting of a titanium screw inserted into the jawbone, with a crown on top. If you’ve lost a tooth, or some teeth, you may well find that not your speech and ability to eat comfortably is affected. An implant will rectify that. It will also prevent your jawbone from shrinking and causing your lips to have a sunken appearance.
Here at the Dental Health Centre in Essex, we have a laboratory on site, where we can manufacture an implant perfectly tailored to your mouth. We also have an expert team of cosmetic dentists waiting to discuss your requirements with you.

We offer single tooth implants or multi tooth implants. With all implants, the jawbone will be assessed for suitability, before the appointment for the procedure is arranged. On the day of the procedure, you will receive anaesthetic and wait for it to take effect, before the implant is fitted.
