What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone to provide a permanent base for replacement teeth. They are typically made of titanium and are designed to fuse with the jawbone over time through a process called osseointegration. Once the implant has fully integrated with the jawbone, it can support a dental crown, bridge, or denture.
With your new implant-retained teeth you can talk freely, laugh with confidence and enjoy all your favourite foods again!
Are Dental Implants Suitable For Me?
Dental Implants are a very versatile treatment and can be used in a number of different scenarios:
- Single tooth replacement
- Multiple teeth replacement
- Full mouth restorations
- Stabilising dentures
- Fixed dental bridges
Have you had enough of the messy dental glue for your dentures? Implants allow you to simply click the denture securely into place so you can confidently bite into that apple again!
There are different types of dental implants depending on the number of teeth being replaced:
Single Tooth Implants
Losing a tooth can make you feel self-conscious when you’re smiling. To remedy this we can carry out a single tooth implant which is surgically placed into the jawbone and a crown is attached to the top of the implant.
Multiple Teeth Implants
When several teeth are missing, an implant-supported bridge can be used to replace them. Two or more implants are placed into the jawbone and a bridge of prosthetic teeth is attached to the top of the implants.
Full Mouth Implants
Also known as full arch implants, this type of dental implant is used when all teeth are missing or need to be removed. It involves the placement of four to six implants into the jawbone and a full arch of prosthetic teeth is attached to the implants.
