dental implants

If you are missing a tooth or teeth and are looking for a permanent solution that will not affect any of your existing teeth, there is an option of having an implant placed.

An implant is a titanium screw-like structure that is inserted into the jaw bone to replace a natural tooth root. The screw must heal and integrate within the bone for approximately three months before it can be restored with a crown, bridge or denture. The dental implant fixture is placed into the bone during a short surgical procedure with a specialist. The restoration of the crown is then performed by our dentists over a couple of appointments.

Having an implant placed instead of a dental bridge or denture has many benefits. An implant supported tooth looks and feels like a natural tooth, does not affect adjacent teeth, and is much easier to clean and maintain. It is also strong and able to perform the same function as a natural tooth.

Not everyone is suited to dental implants. For successful implantation, patients must have an adequate amount of bone around the site of the implant, a very high level of oral hygiene and the ability to heal quickly. If you are considering an implant or would like to find out more, please give us a call or book a dental consultation appointment using our online booking request form.
