Dental Implants

PERSONALIZED PATIENT CARE



Dentistry and getting dental implants is a life changing and painless procedure. Our philosophy is to provide dental solutions that are in your best interest.

For those who have missing teeth, wear dentures or who are about to lose their teeth, dental implants can offer a superb permanent alternative to restoring missing or failing teeth. Losing your teeth or even only one tooth, can often have a psychological impact.

A dental implant is essentially an artificial ‘root’ typically made of titanium, which is placed in the jawbone to support a replacement tooth or teeth in the form of a crown (for a single tooth) or bridgework (for multiple teeth and implants).

A single missing or failing tooth, or any number of teeth up to a complete dentition can be restored with dental implants, providing a highly predictable restoration that should preserve and strengthen the bone as well as look and feel completely natural.

For failing teeth what need to be extracted, we place the implant or implants directly into the extraction socket whenever possible as the tooth or teeth are removed (i.e. immediate implants). In addition, an immediate ‘provisional’ or interim restoration of the tooth or teeth is provided so you can still function and smile whilst the implant or implants stabilise in the jawbone.

Numerous studies have shown that the single most important factor determining the success and longevity of any dental work is in the skill and knowledge of the person who performs it.
