Modern 3D scanning and milling means you can now replace one or more missing
teeth with a completely natural-looking implant that functions exactly like your
original tooth. If you are interested in getting dental implants, your dentist will carry
out a comprehensive dental exam to ensure your suitability for dental implants (this
requires dental x-ray & scanning to assess your bone levels in your jaw).
Whether you are missing a single tooth or all of your teeth — the
gap can leave a dent in your confidence. Dental implants are the best
substitute for your natural teeth. Held in with titanium your new
bite is going to be a thing of wonder and confidence.

Dental Implants are a highly successful, innovative dental solution to missing teeth. Implants act in a similar way to the root of a tooth - they are surgically placed below the gumline into the bone of the jaw and are used to support either a porcelain crown, bridge or securely affixed dentures.
Yes, at Truly we know that restoring the appearance as well as the function of the original teeth are both essential outcomes for our patients, and so our dental technicians custom-make each implant crown or bridge specifically to fit and blend into your mouth. We take the time to choose the exact colouring to match your natural teeth giving you the most realistic, organic result possible. Not only will your new implant restoration feel like your own tooth, nobody will be able to tell that it’s not!
Before Dental Implants were routinely available through specially trained dentists, the loss of a tooth or multiple teeth for a patient left them with only dental bridges or dentures for options. At Truly Dental we are proud to be able to make the latest advancements in dental care, technology and techniques available to our patients so that they can choose options which provide so much more in terms of long-term function, oral health, appearance and quality of life.
Traditional dentures can often fit uncomfortably, they affect taste in addition to limiting the types of food we can readily enjoy, and they may move or slip when eating and speaking. Moreover, a denture only sits on top of the gums and does not address the issues caused by the loss of teeth for the jawbone – over time if missing teeth are not restored, the jawbone with no roots in key areas to hold its shape, will begin to shrink and lose mass, resulting in a prematurely aging appearance as the lower facial features increasingly sag inwards. Dental Implants are an extremely effective way to preserve the jaw bone and its original shape into the long-term when correctly maintained and cared for. Losing a tooth need no longer be a cause for stress and anxiety, when we can restore your signature smile, preserve your youthful facial structure and allow you to keep living your own daily life without disruption or loss.
A dental bridge is a full false tooth being supported by two crowns placed onto the remaining teeth on either side of a gap, and involves filling down some of the adjacent teeth to make them ready to receive these crowns – this process does pose a risk of damage over time to the remaining, natural teeth. Dental Implants have removed the need for impacting the adjacent teeth to fully fill and restore both the root and the gap left by a missing tooth, leaving your remaining teeth undisturbed and doing away with all related issues, while delivering a host of added benefits.
Dental Implants have been used by specially trained implant specialist dentists for many years and have a hugely successful track record of long-term excellent outcomes and sky-high patient satisfaction. The implants themselves are made of titanium, a metal which is completely body-safe and biocompatible, and has been shown to integrate seamlessly with the body without any adverse effects.
At Truly our implant specialists can confidently assure you of our initial implant success rates of over 99%.
We are proud to be the only clinic in Ireland to offer a full 20-year warranty on the majority of Implant placements, so if you are experiencing any issues with your tooth before that time we will be happy to assess and restore it without any additional charge while it is under warranty. You can trust us to provide you with superior, long-lasting treatment that is both cost-effective and delivered to the highest possible standard.
To get the most out of the investment you have made into your future wellbeing and quality of life, to maintain and safeguard your implants and permanent dental restorations we recommend regular dental hygiene visits and check-ups with your dentist. Making that commitment to excellent oral health habits, including keeping up a consistent and thorough dental hygiene routine at home, can mean that your dental implants will last you for a lifetime.
In the vast majority of cases seen at Truly, the time from the initial surgical procedure appointment to place the implant(s) until final restoration with the permanent crown or bridge is 4 months in total. Your dentist will always provide you with a temporary restoration to cover and protect your implant while it is healing, and this temporary restoration can often be placed on the very same day as your implant procedure, so you can rest assured that you will not be waiting long before you see beautiful, transformative improvements to your smile.
In some cases where there is less bone available in your jaw, additional steps may be required prior to implant placement; including a specialist procedure known as bone grafting, which are carried out by our qualified implant surgeons at our Dublin city centre clinic. If this is required in your case, your dentist will always communicate this with you from the start, and you will be given a fully detailed treatment plan following assessment of your mouth and jaw at initial consultation, so that your dentist can give you an accurate time frame for full treatment completion.
Implants aren’t suitable for patients below 18 years of age – due to the central importance of the jawbone to this procedure, and as the bone hasn’t fully developed and matured at this age. Younger patients can be assured that your treating dentist will fully and accurately assess your suitability for this treatment using a 3D specialised dental X-ray at your initial consultation before proceeding.
Thankfully, there is no upper age limit for this treatment – people of all ages deserve to experience the freedom, quality of life and confidence that comes with eating the foods you enjoy and talking, smiling and laughing with pleasure rather than the embarrassment of dentures coming loose.
No, the Dental Implant procedure is entirely painless. Your dentist will ensure that your gums are completely numbed with localised anaesthetic before they begin the surgical procedure. The most you will feel is some vibration and gentle pressure.
Truly also offers Dental Sedation for all of our procedures for our patients who may feel nervous at the thought of any dental procedures, or simply to reduce related stress and anxiety so that you can experience the benefits of this life-changing treatment in complete relaxation.
As the placement of Dental Implants is a surgical procedure, most patients will experience some discomfort in the day or two following their treatment. However, this can be effectively managed in almost all cases with over-the-counter pain relief medication, with your dentist of course happy to provide you with a prescription for pain relief if needed in your case. And within a matter of days, and very occasionally a week in terms of more complex surgical site placements, following your dentist’s aftercare guidelines regarding recovery, rest and caring for your implant, you will be feeling fully yourself again in no time.
Not at all, cleaning your Dental Implants is no more difficult than cleaning your natural teeth. We recommend that you visit our implant hygienist every 3 months to ensure your teeth are well maintained and to check-up on your home oral health routine.
