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.


Single Tooth Implant

Replacing a missing or failing tooth with a single-tooth implant has great benefits over the alternative options of a bridge or denture

In most cases, the treatment is very quick (usually taking less time in the chair than a crown or root treatment), is virtually pain-free, and the recovery is normally simple and straightforward. Most patients report less discomfort after an implant is placed than following an extraction by their dentist.

You do not have to be left with a visible gap during any stage of your treatment, and we will discuss your options for filling these gaps carefully with you at your assessment.

The final outcome will be a replacement tooth that looks, feels and functions like one of your own teeth.
