Dental implants are an effective, long-lasting way to replace one or more missing teeth. They can improve how you eat and speak, prevent shrinkage of the jawbone, and keep existing teeth firmly in place.
With our help, tooth loss doesn’t have to be a permanent problem. Dental implants act just like tooth roots and the titanium posts eventually fuse with the jaw bone, providing a firm foundation for a crown or bridge. Dental implants are sometimes used as an alternative to dentures.
- Step 1 – We carry out a full assessment of general health, oral health and the density of the jaw bone. If you have insufficient bone volume for implants, you may need a grafting procedure to allow a successful placement of the implants.
- Step 2 – If you are a suitable candidate, the titanium posts are surgically placed in the bone. Over a few months, the implants will bond with the jaw bone as titanium is very well-tolerated by the body.
- Step 3 – Once settled in and fully healed, we can fit replacement teeth to the now firmly positioned implants.
You need to maintain good oral hygiene following treatment to ensure the implant remains trouble-free. We encourage you to create a daily brushing and flossing routine, ensuring the implant lasts for as long as possible.
