Dental Implants

Find a permanent solution for a missing tooth

If your patient regularly returns to see you with a broken or troublesome bridge, offer them the permanent solution with unrivalled results – dental implants.

What are dental implants?

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium screw that supports a false tooth (or teeth) in the same way that roots hold natural teeth in place. They are placed directly into the jawbone in a minor surgical procedure that usually takes place in a dental surgery under a simple local anesthetic. In many cases, inserting an implant is even easier than tooth extraction and the patient can expect to feel only mild pain and discomfort for a few days after the treatment. Once the implant has been placed, new permanent false teeth are fitted in a separate procedure about 3 – 4 months later.

The next best thing to healthy, natural teeth

Dental implants are a long-term solution to replacing missing teeth. Although they may require occasional adjustments, dental implants can last a whole lifetime if properly fitted and cared for - unlike dentures and bridgework. Strong, stable and built to last, dental implants can be the more cost-effective option in the long run.

What’s more, dental implants look, feel and function like real teeth. Patients can say goodbye to worrying about replacement teeth falling out or loosening when they talk, laugh, smile, kiss or cough. They will also be free to eat whatever they want without any discomfort or embarrassment.

Dental implants also help to protect healthy teeth and bone. In some cases, bridgework can require grinding down healthy teeth on one or both sides of the missing tooth in order to support the new bridge. Dental implants replace the original root of the missing tooth in your jawbone, causing no impact on the adjacent teeth. Similarly, because they leave no empty spaces in the mouth that lead the jawbone to deteriorate, implants are the only solution to missing teeth that actually preserve and even stimulate healthy bone.
