What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are used to permanently replace missing teeth and they are considered the closest thing to a natural tooth. They comprise of two main parts, the implant, which anchors in your new tooth/teeth (similar to a root of the tooth) and the restoration on top (e.g. crown, bridge, denture etc).

Why Would You Want Dental Implants?

If you have lost a tooth due to natural causes or in an accident, implants are a secure way to restore your smile:

  • Missing teeth
  • Replace decayed teeth that need to be removed (extracted)

Dr Andrew Murphy

BDS (Birm) 1992

GDC no 68778

I graduated from Birmingham Dental School in 1993 and have since worked in general practice and at Selly Oak Hospital as an orthodontic assistant. I have a special interest in implantology and in 2004 I undertook a comprehensive programme with the Oxford Society of Oral Implantology directed by Professor Manuel Chanavaz.

I have continued my interest in orthodontics and have attended many seminars run by the inspiring lecturer, Skipp Truitt, through which I have gained greater experience in the fields of functional orthopaedics and the management of TMJ disorders.

I became the new owner of West Heath Dental Practice with my wife Mirabel in 2008 and I feel that I bring enthusiasm and the key skills essential to progressive and modern dentistry.

When I am not at work I enjoy the challenge of a triathlon or an off road run but to really relax, once my three children have finally gone to sleep, there is nothing quite like working your way through a current DVD box set.
