Implants at Wem
Do you have a missing tooth, or teeth?
Are you unhappy with your bridge or denture? Modern dentistry offers solutions for 21st-century patients.
We’re often asked, “Should I have implants?”
Our answer is, “It’s definitely worth finding out if it’s a good solution for you. If you book a consultation, the dentist will be able to guide you so you can reach your own informed decision.”
A dental implant is the closest alternative to a real tooth. In both form and function, an implant is the most natural restoration modern dentistry can offer patients with missing teeth.

For realistic replacement teeth
Dental implants are an extremely effective and stable way to replace a single tooth or several missing teeth. They are tiny titanium posts which act just like tooth roots as they bond with the surrounding bone. Dental implants securely support natural-looking replacement teeth, including crowns, bridges or dentures.
If you do not have sufficient bone density to support several implants, replacement teeth can be attached to just four strategically placed implants.
How they help
- restore and enhance your smile
- prevent jaw bone shrinkage
- improve how your mouth functions
- make teeth easier to clean
- keep any natural teeth in place

If well-maintained, with a good oral hygiene routine and regular examinations, according to current statistical analysis, 95% of dental implants will last for at least fifteen years.
We can offer hygiene advice and special implant cleaning tips to help you keep them in optimum condition.
