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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
