Dental Implants

So what are Dental Implants? Well the short answer is, it’s a way of replacing one or more missing teeth. They’ve very effect, strong and secure, and provide a permanent finish that look and feel like natural teeth.

The implants consist of a tiny titanium rod that’s inserted into your jawbone and after sometime, your bone will have bonded to the rod and created a ‘foundation’ root for a false tooth to secure too.

Dental implants allow for you to completely restore your smile if you’ve lost any teeth, resulting in the improved look of your teeth, restoring your confidence.

Key points

  1. Dental implants look natural
  2. Security – your teeth won’t fall out
  3. Permanently fixed allowing for you to those sticky toffee’s!

During the course of your treatment, once the dental implant has fully integrated with your jaw bone – which takes anywhere from 3 to 6 months – the final crown or denture can be fixed to the implant.

They’re a great solution for those wishing to replace a missing tooth without the need to wear dentures. Most patients are suitable for dental implants, as long as they are in good health and have adequate bone. Even in some cases where there isn’t enough bone, we’re often able to undertake grafting procedures to provide enough of a foundation for the dental implant.
