Dental Implants

Dental implants can help breathe life back into your face by re-creating a full and natural smile.
They are often an aesthetic improvement to bridges or partial dentures. They are mainly used to replace missing teeth but they can also support dentures and help prevent the bone loss and facial ageing often caused by unsupported dentures.
Implants can also be used to replace full dentures for a natural appearance and greater comfort.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

There are many advantages to dental implants, including:

Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.

Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that your teeth might slip.

Improved comfort. Implants become a part of you, and as a result eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.

Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.

Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and improve your self confidence.

Improved oral health. Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving your long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.

Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.

Convenience. Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing your dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep your dentures in place.

Although implants take longer to place and can be more costly than other options, they can provide permanent restoration and a very natural appearance, earning their reputation as a state-of-the-art option for tooth replacement.

How an Implant is Done

A missing front tooth.

A hole is prepared in the jaw bone in stages.

An Implant is fitted and a healing cap inserted.

When the Implant has healed, the healing cap is exposed and an abutment insrted.

A crown is then fited to the abutment.
