Implants

Dental implants are the revolutionary new way to replace missing teeth.

An implant is simply a titanium screw that replaces the root of the natural tooth and which, after a few months, the body accepts as a new root. After an implant is placed into the underlying bone, a porcelain tooth is then placed on top of the new artificial root, resulting in a restoration that should last a lifetime.

Teeth may be missing for a number of reasons – decay, gum disease or after an accident. For some this may lead to feelings of self-consciousness. Not only this, but missing teeth can make chewing more difficult and the spaces around teeth can be a trap for plaque and food debris which increases your risk of decay and gum disease.

With implants we literally reconstruct a new tooth and root. Implants can be used on a single root or a number can be placed where there are more teeth missing or existing teeth need replacing. Implants provide an infinitely more comfortable alternative to dentures and feel and look like natural teeth.

Implants are stronger than natural teeth and many patients report the renewed ability to eat all sorts of foods when once they could only manage soft foods. If you have a gap, why not see what we can do?

Frequently Asked Questions

Your dentist should be able to give you a rough estimate about time after your first consultation. Nowadays some false teeth are fitted as the same time as implants for some cases. Check with your dentist to see if it’s suitable for you. Normally the false teeth are fitted after 3-4 months after placing the implant. In some instances it might take longer due to complexity of the case but your dentist should be able to let you know about this during your treatment.

They look exactly the same as your natural teeth.
