Dental Implants

Dental implants are a long-term replacement solution when you have a missing tooth. A dental implant consists of a small titanium screw that is placed directly into the jawbone.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • Dental implants are the closest possible replacement to natural teeth.
  • Implants remove the need to trim adjacent teeth to support a bridge. They are thus the least invasive treatment option for missing teeth.
  • Implants help preserve the bone in the jaws.
  • Implant supported teeth help you with all functions that natural teeth provide. You can get back your wonderful smile and eat anything you like.
  • Implant supported prosthesis are extremely comfortable and the preferred treatment option over removable dentures.

How are dental implants placed?

Planning

Careful planning is an essential first step that begins with a thorough examination of the individual case. In order to determine if you are a suitable candidate for an implant, we take a CBCT image. This will help us to ensure you have enough bone to support the implant screw. After reviewing this information, a customised treatment plan is made.

Implant Placement

The next stage is to have the implant placed. Once the implant is in place, the area is left for 3-6 months to ensure that the implant is accepted and successful.

Replacement Teeth

When the healing period is complete, restorative work will begin. Impressions will be taken and sent to the lab to have your final restoration made.

Caring for Your Dental Implants

Very much like natural teeth, implants require regular check-ups. The success of dental implants is dependent on seeing your dentist regularly and maintaining good oral hygiene. During your regular check-up appointments, we will evaluate the success of your home care techniques to help ensure that you are doing the best you can to maintain the long-term function of your implants.
