A dental implant is a metal rod that has an internal screw or clip (abutment) that can hold a false tooth, or set of teeth, in place. Implants are usually made of titanium.
Over several months, your jawbone will fuse with the titanium rod. Dentures, crowns or bridges can then be attached to the implant to replace your missing teeth. One implant can support one or more replacement teeth.
Having dental implants will involve at least one minor operation. It is usually done in two stages:
- Stage 1
The implant is placed in the bone. It is then left to allow the bone to grow around it. This can take 10-12 weeks.
- Stage 2
The implant is restored with a life like crown.
You need to have healthy gums in order for dental implants to work. Smoking can adversely affect the outcome of the treatment, and is best avoided. Implants are less likely to be successful if you have a medical condition such as diabetes or osteoporosis, or have had chemotherapy.
You may need to have an X-ray or a computerised tomography (CT) scan so we can check the thickness of your jawbone and the position of other structures in your mouth.
The implants at our dental clinic are placed by a dentist with further post graduate qualifications in implant placement with many years of experience. General dentists do not place implants at our practice.
Why choose a dental implant?
Implant supported teeth are the closest thing possible to natural teeth. Dental implants allow you to eat all the foods you like, just as with natural teeth. Dental implants provide a long-term solution to your dental problems, often lasting a lifetime. Dental implants can be placed without impacting other healthy teeth unlike certain bridges. Dental implants avoid the potential bone loss problems caused by bridges and partial dentures. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, a few teeth, or all the teeth. Implants are fixed in place and aesthetically more pleasing than dentures.Implants are easy to keep clean and floss just like natural teeth.
