Dental Implants

Dental Implants are the best way to replace missing or damaged teeth. A dental implant is a replacement for your own tooth root, made from titanium and fitted precisely into your jawbone. It is inserted under local anaesthetic by one of our Oral Surgeon specialists, where it fuses over time with your own bone in a process known as osseointegration. This process takes between three to six months but will vary from patient to patient.

Once the dental implant – the replacement ‘root’ – has fused to the jaw, you may add a crown, a dental bridge, or full dentures atop a single dental implant or multiple dental implants. The secure implant will allow any prosthetic teeth to look, feel and function like natural teeth.

Why are Missing Teeth a Problem?

  • Tooth loss leads to jawbone deterioration
  • Tooth loss, even a single tooth, leads to damage of neighbouring teeth
  • Facial features become ‘sunken’ making you look older
  • Dentures move around in the mouth
  • Conventional Dentures and Bridges don’t solve the problem of bone loss and will get loose as bone recedes further
  • Overall dental health deteriorates

How Do Dental Implants Help?

  • Dental Implants are anchored into the jawbone and fuse into it (osseointegration) providing perfect stability
  • They don’t have to rely on surrounding teeth for support
  • Implants allow whatever is fitted to them – crowns, bridges or dentures (prosthodontics)-to perform naturally and allow a normal bite pattern
  • Dental implants avoid bone loss problems caused by full and partial dentures.
  • Dental implants preserve as many of your natural teeth as possible without the need to file them down to support a bridge
  • There is no slipping, slurring or difficulty chewing once dental implants have been used to anchor your prosthodontics
  • Eat what you want, when you want, enjoy great oral health

Dental implant to replace a single tooth missing

One of the benefits of a dental implant over a bridge is that the neighbouring teeth are not affected. A single implant is inserted in about 15 minutes and the surgery absolutely is pain-free.

Dental implants to replace multiple teeth missing

Dental implants are replacing missing teeth roots and can also bridge a longer gap.

Dental Implants to replace all teeth missing

Dental implants are an easy way to anchor and fix loose and shifting dentures and to stop bone recession
