A dental implant is a permanent treatment that may replace lost teeth.
In successful cases, the outcome may be like getting your teeth back, cosmetically and functionally.
In less ideal cases, implants may still be used to anchor a denture very firmly into its place.
There are costs involved, but since successful implants may last for a lifetime and bridges or dentures last for many years, it may not be as costly as it first seems.

Some implant patients report a remarkable improvement in quality of life, which is hard to put a price tag on.
Our friendly reception staff will be happy to book you in for a consultation, free of charge.
The dentists at the Port Erin Dental Surgery all use the Straumann system.
We do so because this is one of the major manufacturers of such systems, with a well proven track record. Straumann also is a major provider of education in implantology and provide excellent support to practitioners and hence, patients.
A highly skilled and very experienced Consultant Oral Surgeon normally places our implants, in close cooperation with our Dental Surgeons.
Implants can normally not be provided under the NHS contract, and are offered under a private agreement.
Like with any private treatment, your dentist will discuss the costs involved and also provide you with a written cost estimate before the start of the treatment.
