Dental Implants £1200 - £2000
A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is a screw, which is cylinder shaped. Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at the precise location of the intended tooth. The main aim during installation of any implant is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into microscopic roughness on the implant surface.

15 Dental Belfast

116 Upper Lisburn Road, Belfast, BT10 0BD
4.8 from 9 verified reviews
Dr. Ian Crutchley offers a comprehensive service to all his patients in a relaxed friendly enviroment. By being able to treat patients using a multi-discipline approach we can tailor-make your dental treatment. For example using orthodontics, spaces can be opened for implants, teeth can be moved to better positions, & any resultant treatment is therefore more stable and comfortable. Put simply - if you visit a crown & bridge specialist, you're a crown & bridge case. If you go to an implant specialist, you're an implant case. We prefer to take a whole mouth approach, taking the best bits of all treatments that are going to get you the best results, & letting the patient be guided by information. Treatment is only provided with your full understanding of our proposals, and we explain things in plain English. Common sense and information are hard to beat! One of Ian's particular interests is the provision of an orthopaedic approach to his orthodontic treatment, trying where possible to avoid extracting healthy teeth, and instead developing the jaws to accomodate the teeth nature intended. He has a particular interest in treating Skeletal Class 3 cases without the need for surgery, and has had many successful instances of this type of treatment. So if you have been told surgery is your only option, that may not be the case, and the younger this type of treatment is started, the better the outcome.
