Dental Implants

The smile you always dreamed of

Implants are the revolutionary way to replace missing teeth and can make the lifelong desire for a wonderful smile real. Implants are titanium screws that are placed in the gum which the body accepts as a new root. A porcelain crown is then placed on top.

Missing Teeth

One or more teeth may be lost for many reasons - decay, gum disease or after an accident. For some people this is not a problem but for others can lead to feelings of self-consciousness. Missing teeth may also make chewing more difficult and increase the risk of a 'bite collapse' by teeth either side moving into the space. The best way to replace missing teeth is through implant replacement. An implant can be used in both single or multiple gaps. Implants have been described as the next best thing to natural teeth due to their strength, aesthetics and durability.

What does treatment involve?

At your first consultation full mouth and panoramic x-rays will be taken and impressions of your teeth and mouth will be taken to assess the possibility of implant placing. A thorough assessment will be made to ensure that this treatment is suitable for you. If suitable, the implant will be placed in the jawbone. This is then left undisturbed for around 6 months by which time the titanium fuses to the bone much in the same way a natural tooth is lodged in the bone. The last stage consists of an impression to place the final porcelain crown on top.

Benefits:

  • Stronger, beautiful teeth

Implants are long-lasting and look great. They will cre8ate a new beautiful smile and boost confidence. Many patients report renewed ability to eat all sorts of food when once they could only manage soft food.
