But what happens if your child is born with congenitally missing teeth?? or what if one of your child adult teeth are knocked out in an accident or sport injury? Can your child get a dental implant in Northern Ireland?

In an ideal world Dental Implants in Northern Ireland are the best solution for replacing missing teeth, offering the strongest and long term most successful solution. However, whether they are placed in the UK or Northern Ireland Dental Implants need healthy and mature bone to ensure they last for many years to come. Undoubtedly we will recommend that a dental implant is used to replace your child’s missing tooth – but we will most likely postpone this procedure until we are sure that he or she has stopped growing. Generally speaking for girls this is around the age of 16 and boys 18 – 19 years of age.
