About us - We are a state of art implant facility in Salisbury, Wiltshire

... with an audited 10 year 99% success rate!

The South Wilts Implant Centre is a state of the art implant facility dedicated to offering patients access to all forms of dental implant therapy. All the team involved have great experience and training in implant dentistry and aim to make this well documented and successful treatment option available to as many people as possible.

Our aim at South Wilts Implant Centre is to allow as many people as possible to benefit from the replacement of missing/extracted teeth with dental implants. Implants can offer a true health benefit to patients if they avoid the drilling of healthy teeth or wearing dentures. However, the cost of implants has always been prohibitive for many people with the major implant suppliers maintaining high costs to the practitioner and patients above those in other countries. With this in mind, South Wilts Implant Centre have sourced different implant systems which significantly reduce the cost to patients and should allow more patients to benefit from implant treatment.
