Dental Implants (aka Teeth Implants) are an artificial replacement for natural tooth roots. The screw-like anchor is attached to the upper and/or lower jawbone and gum tissue to provide a stable base for the artificial replacement of teeth.

It can be used for crowns, bridges and dentures providing for the most natural looking restoration option. Implants are a beneficial alternative to false teeth due to the longevity, comfort, cosmetic advantage, prevention of bone loss and sturdiness over bridges or dentures.

It is important to be aware that the dental implant procedure from start to finish can take 3-8 months.

Firstly, the damaged tooth is removed and if needed synthetic bone is usually added to increase stability and secureness. Once the bone is developed, the implant can be inserted into the jaw and a screw is inserted to prevent debris from entering the area. It will take another 3-6months to check the implant is stable.

Finally, a crown will be made to best suit your natural/surrounding teeth. Then you can enjoy your beautiful smile! Come in today to discuss your options.

FAQ

Conventional dentures are not always cost-effective. The initial layout for dental implant treatment varies on how many implants are needed and if bone augmentation is required.

Other factors include the surgery itself, lab work, the prosthesis and the dentist’s and dental technician’s fees.

We will provide a cost plan when all of these aspects have been addressed, and in some cases, dental implants may be more economical in the long term solution. 

Implant therapy is a well-proven, state-of-the-art medical dental technique that has been scientifically tested and used for decades by dentists and surgeons worldwide. 

Depending on the condition of each patient, potential risk factors may vary.

Bad oral hygiene or limited healing of the wound due to pre-existing medical conditions (for example diabetes and osteoporosis) may reduce the odds of the implant remaining in place.

Unfortunately, every surgical procedure carries potential risks and our dentists will evaluate whether dental implants are the right option for you.

Dental implants are generally inserted under local anaesthetic to help minimise discomfort during the operation. Patients experiencing any doubts about the condition of the implant site after the procedure, should make sure to consult a dentist.

It is possible to insert implants as soon as the jaw has stopped growing. Therefore, in young patients, dental implants can only be placed once their jaw bones are fully developed. 

At the other end of the spectrum, there is no age limit, given of course that the patient does not display any significant medical risk factors. This will be evaluated by the dentist.

After insertion of your implant, the bonding process (osseointegration) takes about 6-8 weeks.

In this time, the implant reaches the stability needed for it to bear weight like a natural tooth. As always, healing times can vary depending on the individual condition and indication.

Impeccable oral hygiene is vital before an implant can be placed. After insertion, teeth need to be carefully looked after, irrespective of whether they are real or artificial. Diligent oral hygiene helps to ensure satisfactory results.
