What is an Implant?

Implant DentistryUsed when replacing an entire missing tooth, dental implants are titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone, to which crowns or a bridge can be attached once the surrounding tissue heals.

Designed to look and function in a similar way to natural teeth, implants are an excellent solution where there is not enough anchoring teeth for bridges, or when a denture cannot be worn.

Titanium is an ideal implant material as it is strong, biocompatible with living bone and muscle tissue, and most importantly, able to fuse with bone, creating a solid, stable structure to cope with the pressures of eating and chewing.

Treatment Phases

Implant DentistryYour implant procedure is conducted under a local anaesthetic, with little or no discomfort. Implant placement requires just a minor opening in the gum-line, to allow your implant to be gently guided into position.

Once your implant is placed, we then construct your prosthetic tooth replacement over a series of appointments. During this phase your healing will be monitored carefully and we will provide a temporary replacement tooth option.

Following your implant procedure it is important to remember that maintaining your oral health is essential. Even though your implant is titanium and your replacement teeth are produced from high quality porcelain, your surrounding teeth and gums are still prone to the effects of gum disease.
