If you have difficulty chewing of lack confidence from teeth which are missing or you wear a denture, then dental implants could be the solution for you.
What are dental implants? A dental implant is a titanium screw. It simply replaces the root of the tooth/teeth that are missing. The implant then has a connector and a crown that is fixed to it in order to replace the missing tooth/teeth.
What’s so good about them? Dental implants can be used in many clinical situations; they can used to replace single or multiple teeth; they are self supporting (no need to use other teeth for support); they help to preserve the foundations of your teeth (the bone); they can be used to stabilise dentures; they can be used to provide fixed teeth and replace removable dentures.
Does it hurt? Our highly skilled implant surgeon places all dental implants under local anaesthetic, so you should not feeling anything during the actual procedure. Most patients have reported that after the treatment it can be mildly sore for 24 hours and then all is fine.
Are they expensive? Fees for dental implants can range depending on how many implants are placed, the type of implant system used, the experience of the implant surgeon, the laboratory fees, and the experience of the restorative dentist. A quote should be given to you at the consultation stage.
Once your missing teeth have been replaced with dental implants you’ll be able to chew your food easily again and smile without the fear of dentures failing out or gappy teeth.
