Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small, screw-shaped device made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, that serves as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth. It is surgically placed into the jawbone and, over time, fuses with the bone to provide a stable base for a crown, bridge, or denture to be attached. Dental implants are a popular solution for individuals with missing teeth who want to restore the function and appearance of their smile.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Procedure for Dental Implants:

1. Implant placement:

  • The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone where it will fuse with the bone and serve as a stable base for the new tooth. This process, although it may sound intense, is actually quite quick and painless, as an anaesthetic is used. This implant placement may be either done in the practice, or in some cases may need to be referred to a specialist oral surgeon, depending on the case.

2. Healing:

  • After the implant is placed, the jawbone will need time to heal and grow around the implant, a process called osseointegration.

3. Attaching the Abutment:

  • Once the implant has integrated with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the implant to hold the new tooth in place.

4. Placing the Crown:

  • The final step is to place the artificial tooth, or crown, on top of the abutment. The crown is designed to match the color and shape of your existing teeth.

What are the risks involved with leaving missing teeth untreated?

If you are missing teeth, dental implants are often one of the best options for a long lasting, comfortable, aesthetic replacement of a single or multiple teeth.
