Dental implants are used to help replace missing teeth and help you smile, chew and eat again with absolute confidence.
Dental implants are a well-established, safe and effective method of replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed into the jawbone and can essentially be used to support a denture or crown.
Dental implants are a highly effective way of replacing either one or a whole set of teeth. It is a procedure that requires a fully formed and healthy jaw but it can also deliver amazingly real replacement teeth that have the ability to last for life.

“I would recommend this practice and Implants to anyone”
I was referred to Farsley Dental Practice by my dentist, My Dentist practice on Broad Lane as I had two failing crowns. The process was explained to me at my free smile plan appointment along with possible costs. I then had an appointment with Dr Swarbrigg. The process was explained to me again. Jon also fitted me in the following week to put my crown back in.
I was sent a costing plan explaining the different scenarios depending on what option was most suitable for me. The first thing I had done was to build up my two front teeth and the two on either side of the proposed Implants. This also lengthened my two front teeth giving a better look. I had x-rays and a bone scan to make sure I was suitable for the Implants to be done straight away. This proved I was and an appointment was made for the next stage.
I had the remains of the two failed crowns removed and the Implants were put in. I was told there maybe swelling and tenderness as well as possible bruising. I did not have any bruising or swelling. All of the process was pain free and I drove home following the procedure. I had another appointment a few weeks later to make sure the Implants were healing well, which they were. Another few weeks later my permanent Implants were fitted, this was followed by an appointment a week later to do final checks.
I am really happy with the results. My biggest fear was having false teeth. The team at Farsley Dental Practice were always very friendly and courteous. I would recommend this practice and Implants to anyone who was in my position – Elizabeth Middleton
The Six Most Common Problems That We Solve
Dental implants are the ideal solution for many people. During our many years we’ve helped people who had…

Replacing A Single Tooth, Several Teeth Or A Full Set Of Missing Teeth
Dental implants are now proven to be the most successful and beneficial way of replacing a single tooth, several teeth or a full set of missing teeth. They are strong, realistic and permanent, providing an improved appearance and the ability to eat what you want. A dental implant is a tiny titanium post that is gently placed into your mouth. Over time the bone grows around and bonds with the titanium to provide a secure base for a tooth, providing a strong, stable and durable false tooth root.
The latest techniques combined with modern materials mean we can provide replacements for missing teeth that look realistic and function well.
We can use implants, bridgework, dentures or a combination of techniques to give you a smile that you can be proud of.
“The Implants have changed my life” Says Margaret Monaghan
I chose to have implants having suffered for years with a plate that always moved. When I went out for a meal I had to choose on the menu only soft food weather I liked it or not. I can now eat whatever I like, it has changed my enjoyment of eating out.
The treatment was fine. Jon is an amazing dentist, he is kind and explains everything as it is done. I have had bad experiences with dentists before and hated going. Now I am fine and it doesn’t bother me at all.
The Implants have changed my life, I wish I had done it years ago. They look amazing. I would recommend anyone thinking about it to go ahead and do it. I don’t regret it and would do it again tomorrow. Jon and his staff at Farsley Dental are just amazing and I would recommend his practice to anyone.
Can Implants Improve Dentures?
Traditional dentures are often fitted onto a plate, which can cover a large area of your mouth and can also be quite loose. This can affect your speech and taste and can make it difficult to eat certain foods. Unsurprisingly, this can also affect your self-confidence when speaking and eating. Implant-supported dentures are much smaller and are held firmly in place by the implants, making them the next best thing to still having your natural teeth.
Implants and mini-implants can be used to anchor dentures that are otherwise loose and unstable. As a result your denture won’t fall out anymore, giving you more confidence in social situations.
You can eat, talk and laugh with more confidence and stop using messy denture fixative gels or creams.
