Dental implants are strong, permanent and realistic replacements for missing teeth. Not surprisingly, they are becoming extremely popular with patients.
The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts, which are gently inserted into the jawbone. Over time the jawbone bonds with the titanium, providing what is in effect a false tooth root. A crown is placed on top of the implant.
The end result is a replacement tooth that is so comfortable and realistic that you may even forget it’s not one of your natural teeth!
The actual implant placement surgery usually only takes around 15 minutes. The area around the implant is completely numbed up, so you won’t feel anything. We have to use a drill, but it is very different from the high-pitched dental drills that so many people hate – all you will feel is a gentle vibration. If you are particularly nervous about the procedure, we can offer you sedation.
You do not have to have a gap in your teeth during treatment – we will be able to provide you with a comfortable, temporary replacement.
After your surgery, we will see you regularly to ensure that everything is healing well. After the implant has integrated with your jaw bone, your new crown, bridge or denture can be placed securely. Loose teeth and dentures should be a thing of the past!
In selected cases, implants can be placed and restored on the same visit. This reduces both inconvenience and cost. To find out your suitability for treatment, please come in for a free initial discussion about your treatment needs
