Dental Implants 

Dental Implants: to replace single or multiple missing teeth. Are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. You will regain the ability to eat like you did with your natural teeth and can smile with confidence. 

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that can be placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Before an implant is placed, radiographical assessments will be made at our surgery using the latest ProMax 3D (Planmeca) Cone Beam 3D CT scan. This ensures a highly accurate assessment is made of the implant site and the type of implant intended to be used.

Surgical placement of the implant(s) into the bone. This is usually done in our surgery, under local anesthesia. After surgery, there is a healing period of approximately four months. During this time, the implants fuse to the bone by a process known as ‘osseointegration’ Next, there is a minor surgical exposure of the top of the implant, whereby the post to the implant will be attached. The function of the post is to become the support for either one tooth or a set of teeth. This short procedure usually requires only local anesthesia. The last phase is the restorative phase. Impressions will be taken and then the prosthesis will be made that will attach to the implants. This will require several visits. Once completed, your mouth will be restored to natural looking, strong teeth.
