A Dental Implant is the gold standard treatment option for replacing a missing tooth, but do you know what a dental Implant is?
Dental Implants are made up of two main components. A titanium screw that acts as replacement tooth root and a dental Implant Crown that is placed on top to look and feel just like a natural tooth.
The titanium screw is placed during pain free surgery under local anaesthetic. The titanium screw is left to heal and integrate into your jawbone. The bone in your jaws can bond to and grow onto this titanium screw.
Once placed, your Dental Implant is checked at regular intervals to ensure healing and integration into your jawbone takes place. Once this is process is achieved you now have a strong, stable, fixed platform for your dental implant crown to be fitted to.
Your Dental Implant Crown is custom made to fit your titanium screw. We work with the best Dental Technicians to fabricate a crown that will look and feel like your natural tooth. The process to make your Implant Crown involves custom impressions or digital scans, sometimes even a combination of both to ensure the Implant Crown fits perfectly to your smile and bite.
Once the Crown has been made it is fixed to your titanium implant with an internal screw giving you a permanent replacement tooth for your missing tooth. Compared with other options such as removable Dentures or a Bridge, Dental Implants provide an increased ability to eat and chew with greater comfort.
Can I have an implant to replace a tooth?
Dental Implants are suitable for a large range of patients who may need to replace a missing tooth due to trauma, decay, periodontal disease (gum disease) or someone currently wearing Dentures. To start the process and to find out if a Dental Implant would be suitable for you come in and meet the team.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Implants can also be used under full dentures to make them rock solid and restore confidence chewing and smiling.
