Dental Implants

An effective long-term replacement for missing teeth

Transform the way your mouth looks and feels with dental implants. If you have missing teeth, dental implants can help recreate the look, feel and function of natural teeth. Providing a long-lasting solution to restore your smile.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are long-lasting replacements for missing teeth. A small titanium screw is implanted into the jawbone, which fuses to the bone to form a firm foundation for prosthetic teeth. The result is a tooth or multiple teeth that look, act and feel just like your own, restoring your confidence and quality of life.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

With dental implants, you’ll never need to compromise when it comes to eating, drinking or smiling with complete confidence.

  • Fill existing gaps to bring back the smile you once had.
  • Eat and drink whatever you like – even steak and corn on the cob!
  • Dental implants help to maintain bone structure and support facial tissues.
  • They provide an effective way to secure bridges and dentures.

What does the procedure involve?

We begin with a digital scan of your teeth and jaw, which enables us to understand the strength and density of your jaw bone. After assessment and treatment planning, your implant placement surgery will be scheduled.

The treatment is carried out under a local anaesthetic, or with sedation if required.

Following placement of the implant into the jaw bone, you may be able to have your replacement teeth placed immediately. In some cases, however, it may be necessary to wait a few months until the implant has fully integrated with the surrounding bone to make sure it’s completely stable. If this is the case, we will fit temporary restorations so you will never be without teeth. Most patients can return to work within one or two days of implant surgery.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that’s surgically implanted into the upper or lower jawbone where the natural tooth/teeth are missing. A tooth replacement is then screwed onto the implant to restore the appearance and function of natural teeth.

How do dental implants work?

Once the implant has been placed into the jawbone, the implant integrates with the surrounding bone to provide a strong foundation for replacing individual or multiple teeth, or anchoring dentures.

How many dental implants will I need?

This depends on your particular case. You may need to replace each individual tooth or several teeth supporting a bridge. Replacing an entire arch would typically require around four implants.

Are dental implants permanent?

Dental implants are designed to be a long term option to replace missing teeth, but they do require good care and maintenance. No other tooth replacement option has the potential to last as long as an implant.

Can anyone have implants?

Implants can only be considered for healthy mouths, so some patients may find that the process of getting implants will first require other dental work, such as bone grafting, gum surgery or orthodontics. For instance, patients with gum disease will not be suitable for implant surgery as the procedure requires strong and healthy gums.

Are dental implants worth it?

Missing teeth can have a huge impact on your quality of life and may lead to more dental problems later in life. Not only do dental implants restore the look and feel of natural teeth, making it possible to eat and drink whatever you like; dental implants can also improve your long term oral health, ensuring your remaining teeth stay in place.
