Dental implants in Scotland

A dental implant is as close to a natural tooth as you can get where a root structure is fixed in place and is not removable. A crown, bridge or even a denture can then be attached to the dental implant giving a stable, solid solution to resolve any gaps in the mouth.

It is important to know that the clinician you visit has received the relevant training and has experience in providing implants. You can find our qualified and experienced Dental implant surgeons in Scotland below. Enquire about a consultation by calling one of the practices below.

Can I afford an implant?
We believe everyone should be able to afford the dental care they need. That’s why we offer a range of competitive prices. Finance options are also available to ensure as many people as possible experience the benefits of dental implants.

Can I get implants on the NHS?
Dental implants are available on the NHS, but only if there's a medical need for the treatment.

Why choose an implant?

  • Unlike a bridge, implants don’t require healthy teeth to be cut down
  • Dental crowns and bridges have to be replaced every 10-15 years – however, a well cared for implant can last a lifetime
  • Implants are easier to care for. You can even fl oss between them
  • Implants look and feel more natural than other alternatives
  • Implants prevent bone loss
  • You can eat the foods you want

The training allows Kevin to assess the patient efficiently and enables him to identify chronic parafunctional habits and relieve chronic head and neck pain caused by this.

Kevin achieved a postgraduate masters degree in Aesthetic Dental Implantology from the University of Central Lancashire in 2015.
