Dental Implants

The long term solution for missing teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are small, biocompatible titanium screws carefully placed into the jawbone to serve as artificial roots for missing teeth. This innovative procedure provides a sturdy foundation for a variety of dental restorations.
One of the remarkable aspects of dental implants is their ability to integrate with your natural bone. The bone naturally grows around the titanium surface, creating a robust and stable connection. This allows implants to reliably support a single tooth crown, multiple crowns, or even an entire set of replacement teeth.
With dental implants, you can restore your smile with confidence, knowing you have a durable and long-lasting solution.

Dental Implant FAQ's

The procedure is usually less painful than having a tooth removed. The implant is placed very carefully, and you only need a local anaesthetic to numb the surrounding area.

If you are slightly more anxious, the treatment can be carried out using conscious sedation. This is an extremely safe way of making you feel relaxed during the treatment and afterwards you remember little of the procedure.

After the surgery, usually only simple painkillers are required for up to two days and most patients having a single implant placed are able to return to work the next day.

If you are fit and healthy, don’t smoke and maintain your implant, it could last a lifetime. The success rates for dental implants are exceptionally high (over 98% over the first 10 years) however we recommend that you see us and your hygienist regularly to make sure it is being looked after the right way.

The prosthesis (the ‘tooth bit’ of the implant) may eventually wear and need replacement but this is usually after a number of years and is much cheaper than the initial implant treatment.

The exact treatment can vary depending on your clinical circumstance. However, the usual timeline is close to the following:

Phase 1: This is where we get to know you and your specific needs. We carefully analyse your specific clinical circumstances and work out the best way to proceed. Usually x-rays, models and photographs and taken to help us provide an accurate diagnosis and tailored treatment plan.

Phase 2: This is the ‘surgical phase’ that involves the placement of the implant and the removal of stitches a few days later. The implant is then allowed to heal and the surrounding bone fuses to it, a process that normally takes 3 months. We sometimes cover the implant with the gum to protect it during the healing phase. If this is case a second very minor surgical procedure is required to allow us to access the implant.

Phase 3: This part of the treatment is similar to having a conventional crown made. We take impressions of your mouth that are sent to a laboratory for the construction of your tooth or teeth.

Phase 4: This is where we review your new tooth or teeth and make sure everything is going well.
If you have a tooth that needs to be removed, an implant can be placed straight after the tooth is extracted. And, if you are worried that you will be left with a space, we are often able to fit a temporary crown onto the implant on the same day. This means you walk out the practice with a new tooth in position.

You will of course be provided with much more information regarding your options at your consultation visit.

The initial cost of an implant is more than for example a denture or a bridge. However, it’s important to remember that what you are getting is a replacement which looks and feels like a natural tooth. There is no damage to the adjacent teeth and after a few days following the completion of treatment most patients actually forget which tooth the implant is!

Also, as implants usually last longer than the other replacement options available, in the longer term your overall investment will go much further. We also offer a range of financing options, including 0% interest options, to help you get the treatment you want.

It is also important to remember than the placement of implants is not ‘everyday’ dentistry and our team have received additional training to allow us to provide this exceptional treatment option to our patients. We take pride in providing the best treatment possible to our patients. We only use superior quality implants with excellent long-term success rates and backed by extensive research.
