    "Friendly helpful knowledgeable. Good practice."

  • Google 5 out of 5

    "I had a difficult extraction, the dentist and nurse were very reassuring and supportive explaining every procedure they were doing I cannot thank them enough."

  • Google 5 out of 5

    "Absolutely wonder staff. I am a little bit phobic of dentists, they had time to listen and then explain every step of what they were going to do and making sure I was ok to go ahead each time. Very thoughtful and happy to help me. Clean practice. Excellently set up with covid bits. Thank you to everyone I saw including the manager."

  • Google 5 out of 5

    "I’ve been with this practice for a very long time since I was a little girl my children now also attend here. We have never had an issue. Staff are always polite friendly and easy to talk to. If treatment is needed I’ve never had an issue getting it done."

  • Google 5 out of 5

    "I have been with them for over 6 years now and very happy with the service. I always read how patients are not particularly satisfied, yet I have never come across anything but politeness, friendliness and professionalism from reception staff, dental assistants to my dentist. I visited a private dentist here in Exeter, had to pay £125 for registration and another £125 for patching up a broken tooth. Then for about a year I had them calling and writing to me about more treatments I 'must have'. Southlawn are less persuasive and definitely not money driven and their customers are given choice of treatments."

  • Google 5 out of 5

    "Fast, efficient and friendly NHS service from Simone as always."

  • Do you find it difficult to eat your favourite foods, enjoy a juicy steak or bite an apple?
  • Are you embarrassed to smile, or do you suffer from confidence issues because of missing, broken or loose teeth?
  • Are your dentures loose and do you worry about them falling out?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, dental implants could be right for you. Here at mydentist, South Lawn Terrace, Exeter our experienced dental implant surgeons can help you regain confidence in your smile with a permanent solution for any number of missing teeth.

What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a fixed solution for missing teeth that are the closest possible replacement for natural teeth. They involve one or more titanium screws being inserted into your jawbone to mimic a natural tooth root. Dental crowns are securely attached to these to fill the gaps in your mouth. Because dental implants are securely anchored in your jaw you’ll have the confidence to comfortably eat whatever you like.

The main benefits of dental implants:

  • Replace loose-fitting dentures
  • Maintain bone structure after tooth loss
  • Improve the appearance of your smile
  • Boost your confidence
  • Function and feel just like natural teeth
  • Improve chewing and speaking
  • Long term solution
  • High success rate

Dental implants are a well-established treatment for replacing missing teeth. As they are inserted directly into your jawbone they help prevent bone loss or movement of your remaining teeth, helping to maintain the structure of your face.

If you are interested in finding out more about dental implants, you can book a consultation for a no obligation conversation about your options and to see if implants are the right choice for you.

Call us on 01392 424555 to find out more

  • Consultation Your initial consultation will be with either our Implant Surgeon or Treatment Coordinator (TCO), who can discuss the different types of implants, single or multiple depending on your need. Following this there may be a need for a more clinical focused consultation.

  • Diagnostic Scans We will carry out a number of digital scans, to build a digital 3D model of your mouth so we can get a clear picture of the area we will place the implant, and a more detailed X-ray using a Cone Beam Computer Tomography scanner so that our Implant surgeon can assess the state of the bone below the gum to get a really clear picture of your treatment need.

  • Treatment Plan Once our experienced implant surgeon has assessed all of you scans they will explain the nature of your treatment, the stages involved and costs. We offer flexible payment options to make implants even more affordable.

  • Commence Treatment Once you are happy we will begin treatment. The length and numbers of appointments will vary depending on the complexity of your particular need, but your Implant Surgeon will have detailed all of this in your treatment plan.

  • Implant Placed Once the implant(s) are placed it may be necessary it might be necessary to allow time for healing before attaching the replacement teeth. Once we are happy the implant has healed we will arrange a series of appointments to fabricate the replacement teeth.

  • Aftercare Your Implant Surgeon will advise you about looking after your implant and may well give you some painkillers to help with the pain over the days after your surgery as well as detailed advice about cleaning the implants and the teeth attached to them.
