Marlborough Clinic Belfast is your total solutions provider for dental implant treatment.
Our experienced team offer a complete dental implant service, from single missing teeth to more complex cases such as teeth in a day, including grafting techniques and sedation if required.
We have embraced progressive technology especially when it makes treatments more comfortable and predictable for our patients. We have been using digital scanning technology to overcome issues with traditional impressions for many years. We use 3Shape Trios scanner which has won multiple awards in the field of digital impression solution. It allows us to capture a digital record of your teeth. As well as being precise and an integral part of our digital workflow, it is a comfortable patient experience.
An on-site CBCT scanner, for 3D diagnostic imaging, allows our clinicians to accurately plan your treatment. Our Planmeca CBCT scanner covers the whole dentition making it an excellent option for full arch dental 3D imaging needs.
There are three main parts to dental implant treatment including:
Surgical – Placement of the dental implant.
Healing – Time after surgery to allow implant to integrate with the bone.
Restorative – Fitting of the crown or bridge.
All aspects of your treatment are provided under one roof at our clinic in Belfast by our dedicated team, working in collaboration with our on-site digital laboratory team. This collaborative approach with our on-site digital dental laboratory allows us to deliver a streamlined, comprehensive tailored service for our patients.
Our experienced lab team create bespoke quality tooth solutions. The true art of colour matching to a patient’s own teeth is only achieved through experienced skill and a passion for detail. Our team take great pride in tailoring implant crowns to meet the requirements of each individual patient.
We are extremely proud to offer Straumann, one of the world’s premium implant systems and we incorporate the most up to date digital technology for accurate, safe, predictable outcomes.

What is a Dental Implant and who is it suitable for?
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. After the implant fuses with the bone in the jaw it serves as a stable foundation for a replacement tooth or crown. Dental implants are suitable for individuals who have lost one or more teeth and who have good oral health, sufficient bone density in the jaw, and healthy gums. Your dentist will assess your individual situation following a consultation to determine if implants are suitable for you.
How long does the process take and last?
The entire process can take several months. After the initial placement surgery follows a healing period known as osseointegration, and after that the attachment of the crown, bridge, or denture is then done. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last for many years and evidence shows that they can last longer when individuals continue to visit the dentist as recommended and maintain their oral hygiene as appropriate. Caring for dental implants is like caring for natural teeth and includes regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings.
What is the success rate of Dental Implants?
Dental implants have a success rate of 95% over 10 years and while this is an impressive rate of success for a medical procedure it is important to note that this does not completely guarantee a successful result and there are unfortunately occasions where the implants may not be successful. People who have suffered from gum disease and bone loss have an increased risk of an unsuccessful implant, although some can potentially benefit from bone grafting which is available to alleviate this risk.
What are the advantages of Dental Implants over dentures?
Dental implants offer several advantages over dentures, including stability, improved chewing ability, superior comfort and a more natural look. Dental implants reduce the risk of losing further teeth that occurs when teeth shift after other teeth in the mouth have been lost. Dental implants function much like natural teeth, allowing you to eat a wide range of foods comfortably, meaning you do not need to restrict your diet as you might with removable dentures. Dental implants offer greater confidence as there is no risk of them potentially falling out in a social situation.
Does the Dental Implant placement procedure hurt?
Dental implants are placed gently and under local anaesthetic that should minimise any potential pain. You are advised to take pain medication for several days after the procedure as swelling and discomfort are common for a short period. After care advice is provided which should be followed to avoid any potential pain or complications.

I had spent a considerable amount of time researching various clinics to have a hair transplant carried out. I decided to book a consultation with Dr McCleery at the clinic. The appointment was everything I had hoped it would be, Dr McCleery was extremely helpful, advising me on what he thought would give me the best end result, I decided there and then I would get the procedure done at Marlborough clinic. The staff in the clinic were amazing right from that first telephone call, throughout the consultation, the procedure itself and the aftercare was second to none. I had a slight accident a few days following the procedure and contacted Dr McCleery for advice, within one hour he met me at the clinic, checked everything over and provided reassurance that all was ok. Dr McCleery went over and above. If you are looking for excellent care, provided in a clean and safe environment with professional, knowledgeable staff I cannot recommend the clinic enough.
My gradual hair loss had become more noticeable and I was keen to explore solutions but had decided I did not want to travel abroad. Whilst researching options for having the treatment completed in Northern Ireland I found Marlborough Clinic Belfast. I could have my consultation and hair transplant procedure completed at this clinic in Belfast. No travel outside of Northern Ireland required. When I contacted the practice I understood it is an RQIA approved clinic for hair transplant treatment and they only carry out one hair transplant per day. I have recently had my FUE hair transplant completed by Dr McCleery. Each step of the process was clearly explained to me and any questions I had were answered. The procedure itself lasted most of the day and I was kept comfortable throughout. The team were both professional and attentive and made me feel at ease. I am looking forward to seeing the results over the upcoming months. I would highly recommend Dr McCleery and the team at Marlborough Clinic Belfast for anyone considering a hair transplant.
Having just substantially completed an extensive course of dental implant treatment in the expert hands of David Nelson and his team, I can't recommend Marlborough Clinic highly enough. After referral by my own dentist for the specialist work, the whole experience has been first class at every stage - arrival at Reception (friendly welcome by Joy and her colleagues), bright airy waiting room, the appointment sessions (careful, professional, courteous treatment by David and his team) and the accompanying checks by Hygienist Tracey.The whole "vibe" in Marlborough Clinic is guaranteed to put even the most nervous of patients at ease, in the confidence that they could not be in better hands.Thank you, Marlborough!
I had been interested in getting a hair transplants for the past few years. After researching the procedure, I decided I wanted to attend a clinic in Northern Ireland. Dr McCleery took my consultation and he was very knowledgeable and informative. The process was thoroughly explained and he was willing to answer any questions I had. Once I decided to proceed with the treatment it was straightforward and fast. My recovery has been smooth, and I am delighted with my results so far. The clinical team were friendly and helpful and ensured I was comfortable throughout. The practice facilities were spotless. I would certainly recommend Marlborough Clinic Belfast and Dr McCleery to anyone thinking of getting a hair transplant.
Excellent is the only word I can use to describe my recent experience at the Marlborough Clinic Belfast. Having recently had a bone graft and implant with Dr David Nelson, I can say that his attention to detail and skill is second to none. Being a nervous patient I was extremely apprehensive about the procedure. My fears proved wholly unfounded. I was expertly guided through the process and I’m delighted with the final result. Thank you to all the team.
I recently had dental implants at Marlborough Clinic and it was incredibly smooth and stress-free. All the team are so friendly, caring and professional and David Nelson is the best of the best. I'm delighted with the results and can't recommend Marlborough Clinic enough.
Highly recommended. Recently had hair transplant with Andrew who along with his team were very professional. Detailed info about procedure was provided in advance and any questions I had answered so I knew exactly what to expect before during and after procedure. Excellent!Staff at reception friendly/helpful also
Dr McCleery did my hair transplant procedure (FUE). He was very gentle and was checking on me from time to time during the procedure to make sure I was okay. The process was very smooth and the staff were very friendly. He gave me post-transplant aftercare to ensure my scalp heals properly. He is easy to access when I had queries about on how to look after my new transplanted hair.I highly recommend him and his team!The clinic itself was very clean and tidy.
I am always nervous about going to the dentist, especially for more major surgery. David and his team made me feel completely at ease from start to finish on the process. I have not experienced the level of professionalism anywhere else, after living in New York for a number of years.When it came to the actual surgery and implant, the standards that David and team hold themselves to is impeccable. I did not feel any discomfort before, during and after surgery. The surgery is clean, calm and organised. It has improved my confidence in keeping my visits up more regularly and on top of teeth health.Thanks to the Marlbourgh clinic for a fantastic service that is worth every penny.
