Dental Implants and Oral Surgery

Specialist Oral Surgeon and Implant Dentist, Robert Bolt BDS (Hons) MBChB (Hons) MFDS RCS (Eng) is medically and dentally qualified and works as an Clinical lecturer in Oral Surgery at the Charles Clifford Dental Hospital.

Dental Implants are small titanium screws, which are surgically screwed into your jawbone. Implants are great for replacing missing teeth. They are not only suitable for replacing just one tooth, dental implants can also be used to replace some or all of your teeth.

They provide a sturdy foundation for prosthetic teeth, closely mimicking natural teeth in appearance and function. The process involves multiple steps, including the implant placement, healing period, and attachment of the replacement tooth. Dental implants offer a durable and long-lasting solution for missing teeth, improving both the appearance and functionality.
