Dental Implants

Dental implants are now regarded as the best option for replacing missing or failing teeth. Dental implants are used to replace single or multiple teeth and can also be used to stabilise loose dentures or allow the patient to replace dentures with a more fixed option.

About dental implants

The actual implants themselves are just small titanium posts that are secured into the patient’s jawbone, replacing the missing tooth. After being secured, the bone gradually begins to bond with the titanium implant, providing a solid and secure platform to replace the missing tooth.

The process

The dental implant process involves getting a 3D scan to ensure the patient’s jawbone is suitable for the implant and to determine where the titanium post can be placed. Once identified the implant is inserted into the jawbone.

As part of the natural healing process the dental implant becomes fused to the jawbone, allowing your dentist to then secure a bridge, crown or denture as appropriate.

Is an implant right for me?

After an initial consultation your dentist will assess your suitability for a dental implant and refer you to a implant centre of your choice.
