Dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth. A dental implant acts like the root of a natural tooth. Implants can be used to replace individual or multiple teeth, when they are used to support crowns/bridges or a denture.
What are the benefits?
Are implants suitable for me?
The best way to assess implant suitability is by having a consultation with a dentist. Digital x-rays can be taken in the practice but in most circumstances we would advise that a cone beam CT scan of the jaw of interest is taken to show us precise bone measurments, and we would be glad to arrange this.
In most cases patients should have healthy gum tissue and enough jawbone to support an implant and replacement tooth. However, there are techniques to add additional bone if required.
Prospective implant patients should also be prepared to maintain good mouth hygiene and visit the dentist regularly for dental check-ups.
Implants involve minor surgery, and treatment is often staged over several months. The majority of implants are carried out within our practice, however if required to be referred to a specialist, we can also arrange this for you.
