Some of our patients have dental implants. Dental implants are used not just for aesthetic purposes, they give the wearer better functionality, jaw structure, and sometimes even correct speech impediments caused by missing teeth. All these benefits can give the wearer another great side-effect, a boost of self-esteem! Implants look just like your ‘real’ teeth, so they’ll allow you to eat, smile, speak, and look just as you would with all your natural teeth in place.
This procedure is done in two separate stages. At our clinic we only do the second stage of securing the tooth onto the implant. We’ll work closely with your specialist who will place the implant into the jaw and we’ll take care of the second and final step.
Dental implants offer the ability to insert a replacement tooth by fixing it to a titanium post which acts as the tooth’s root. Unlike Dentures which are removable, implants are permanently fixed in place and do not need to be anchored to other teeth like a bridge does. Implants have proven to be reliable and long-lasting, making them a popular solution for people wanting to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants require the patient to have healthy gums and adequate bone structure to support the implant. Your dentist will be able to assess your suitability and if necessary, recommend alternative treatments for you.
