we offer dental implants in GREAT YARMOUTH & LOWESTOFT
Dental Implant is the preferred option to replace a missing tooth or set of missing teeth. Dental implants are made of titanium and are placed in the jawbone and eventually embed into the bone. Implants can also serve as an anchor for a denture.
The fear of losing our teeth is something many of us experience. Today, however, thanks to dental implants, tooth loss does not have to be a permanent problem. Here at the Hopton Dental Practice, we offer a choice of dental implant solutions of the highest standard that provide a safe and reliable method for replacing missing teeth and uncomfortable dentures. Your care in a friendly environment, by a caring team of highly experienced dental professionals who will always ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the treatment.
- Replace One or More Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
In the long term, Dental implants are usually the best solution for permanent replacement of one or more tooth as these are designed to replace your old tooth completely – at both a root and crown level; designed to match your original teeth in shape and colour. Once your crown is fitted, it is usually impossible to tell whether you have a dental implant; unless you choose to announce!
- Replace Uncomfortable Dentures with Implant-Supported Dentures
They are ideally suited to patients with all of their teeth missing or patients who have previously lost their teeth and now wear uncomfortable dentures. All-on-4 Implant Supported Dentures are a highly effective and affordable treatment option that provides same-day new teeth to transform a smile immediately!

SOME GENERAL QUESTIONS ASKED
What is a dental implant?
Dental Implants are used to replace missing teeth. They are the next best thing to the natural teeth. Dental Implants are made of titanium, which is inserted in the jaw and are fixed with crowns on top to give the feel of natural-looking teeth.
Am I a suitable candidate for a dental implant?
A few medical conditions prevent the use of implants, but these are rare. There is no age limit, and elderly patients are often quite suitable. However, implants need enough good quality bone to lock into. Certain individuals may not have enough bone in the right place, or the bone may be too fragile to support an implant. Bone grafting procedures can sometimes overcome this.
Are implants safe and long-lasting?
Dental Implants are a safe procedure and last for many years. There is aftercare which is required. Our experienced dentist will go through the aftercare with you.
What if I smoke?
Smoking can affect the healing of an implant. However, this does not prevent smokers from having implants successfully placed and restored. Please speak to our dentist to find out more.
Will it hurt?
Dental Implant is not a very painful procedure. Our expert dentist will conduct the procedure under local anaesthesia to minimize the pain. If you are a nervous patient, we can also arrange sedation for you.
Planning your treatment
The treatment can be carried out by The Hopton Dental Practice on a surgery-only basis – where your dentist will be involved in the planning and building of the superstructure crown or bridgework.
Once your new tooth is completed, you will be given a post-operative care plan to keep the implants in good shape, for you to enjoy the benefits for years to come!
