One of the most effective and long-lasting tooth replacement treatments available; dental implants are a great solution to complete your smile and boost your confidence.
Dental implants can be used for a wide range of treatments; one implant can replace a single missing tooth, two implants can secure a loose denture, and multiple implants can be used to replace all the teeth in your mouth.
At Thorpe Lea Dental we use the industry-leading Straumann implant system – one of the most tried and tested precision implant systems in the world. They’re a completely safe, natural-looking solution for people who have one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or need a full smile replacement.
Dental implant treatment is a minor surgical procedure that is carried out under local anaesthetic and has been performed for many years, with an excellent success rate.
An implant comes in two parts and often across several appointments. The first is an artificial root made from ultra-pure titanium that replaces the root of a missing tooth. It can be placed in either the upper or lower jaw and in time will bond with the jawbone. The second part is the restoration or false tooth that’s attached to the dental implant root – we normally wait around three to six months to allow full implant healing before we can place a new tooth.
For those missing one tooth, a crown will be created to perfectly match your existing teeth. If you have a full set of dentures, this can be attached to four or six dental implant roots, which means you don’t need one implant root for every missing tooth you have.
At Thorpe Lea Dental, we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality dental care, excellent results, and an exceptional patient experience. But don't just take our word for it; see our Google reviews.

Whether you're comfortable visiting the dentist, you're a nervous patient, or someone in between; we'll make sure you feel comfortable and at ease with the very best patient experience with us.
Once we’ve booked your appointment, we’ll email you a welcome pack 3 days before your visit, with some new patient forms for you to complete and send back to us, or we can send your welcome pack via post. Your first appointment will take around 1.5 hours.
Your dentist will greet you, take you into the surgery, and introduce you to your nurse. The dentist will have already reviewed your new patient forms and will have a chat with you about your medical history, oral health habits, and anything else they need to know.
This involves an examination of your teeth looking for signs of any decay and existing restorations, and a basic gum check to gauge if you need to return for a more in-depth periodontal exam. We’ll also take a full oral digital scan and intra-oral photos.
Once we’ve completed the initial exam, we’ll have a chat with you about our thoughts on further tests or treatments based on your photos, scans, and exam notes. You’ll also get the chance to ask us any questions you might have, and further appointments will be booked.
This appointment is for a detailed gum pocket examination, and we’ll also get some digital extra-oral photos taken to help us to record your gum level, smile, and any improvements you want to make. We’ll also thoroughly clean your teeth with our EMS Airflow machine.
Based on previous appointments and discussions, your dentist will put together a detailed treatment plan including suggested treatments, cost estimates, and timeframe. You’ll also have the option of joining our membership plan to spread out the cost of your treatment.
Once you’re happy to proceed, your journey to a lovely new smile will begin! Your treatments will be booked in and you’ll have the support and care of our friendly staff throughout your course of treatment – we want you to have an exceptional experience with us and achieve results you’re proud of.New PaTients
A dental implant acts as an artificial root in place of your natural tooth root and is made from ultra-pure titanium. They can be placed in either the upper or lower jaw and in time will bond with the jawbone, like a natural tooth. The implant will then anchor a restoration or false tooth that’s attached to the dental implant root, to mimic the look and feel of your real teeth.
Dental implants at Thorpe Lea Dental starts from £2,500, and finance options are available. Over time, dental implants have proven to be the most cost-effective solution for replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants are suitable for most people aged over 18 who are in reasonably good health, but our thorough implant assessment will determine whether dental implants are the right option for you.
In a healthy person with a healthy mouth and bone, implant roots (the metal part) should last as long as natural teeth. They need caring for as natural teeth do, but if they’re well taken care of, the crowns or bridges supported by the implants can last a decade or more.

Do you suffer from mouth irritation, problems with speaking and eating, dry mouth, excessive saliva, or unstable dentures that make you feel insecure?
There’s a solution – you can restore your taste, smile and confidence with dental implants from Thorpe Lea Dental in Staines. Our experienced implant dentist has been successfully placing dental implants for many years for patients in Staines, Virginia Water, Sunbury, Wraysbury, Shepperton, and beyond.
Implant-retained dentures are fixed and secure, allowing you to live your life to the full. Depending on how many teeth you have missing, we can ‘bridge’ between implants. If you have four teeth missing in a row, we could place two implants at each end and suspend two teeth between them. If you have no teeth at all, then it is possible to provide a new full set of teeth with just four implants.
Implant-supported dentures, or overdentures as they are sometimes known, are removable dentures that are connected to either a ball or bar attachment, which in turn is anchored on two or more implants. The implants secure the denture and provide better function and comfort
Dental implants look, feel and work just like real teeth, making it easier for you to chew, speak, and function as you normally would with a full set of real teeth. They can replace one or more missing teeth and securely hold dentures and bridges in place.
Our experienced implant dentist has been successfully placing dental implants for many years. We’re always delighted by the amazing, life-changing results achieved.
Whether through accident or decay, there’s no doubt that losing teeth can have an emotional impact. The big issue is that when teeth are lost, the bone that held them in place in your jaw will shrink.
The placement of dental implants can preserve this bone, maintaining the shape and structure of the lips and cheeks and preventing the ageing ‘caved-in’ look of some older people with dentures.
Using implant technology, we can enhance and rejuvenate the aesthetics of your smile.
If you’re ready to get started on your dental implant journey today, fill in your details and we’ll contact you to arrange a time for your first consultation. We look forward to transforming your smile!
“Very professional and friendly. All staff from the front desk to the dentist are extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.”
