Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

When teeth are lost or removed, it can result in problems with eating and function, not to mention the aesthetic aspect of missing teeth.

Due to modern day dentistry, we are able to replace this missing tooth with a dental implant, which are placed in the jaw bone, as shown in the picture. Implants are small titanium cylinders that support crowns, bridges and also dentures. Crowns are viewed as the best replicate, in terms of normal function and appearance of a natural tooth.


What is the Implant process?

Implant treatment normally has two stages. First, the gum is numbed and lifted open. The implant is then placed in the jaw and allowed to heal for a period of 12 weeks . Then, when the jaw has healed, replacement teeth are attached to the implant.

In some situations it is possible for temporary teeth to be attached to an implant at the time of fitting. This way you won’t have missing teeth whilst the implant is healing.
