Dental implants are metal posts that are carefully placed into the jawbone to replace natural teeth and roots. Your dentist can use them in two different ways. One way is for patients who have lost all teeth and use implants to hold dentures in place. The second way is for people who have a single tooth or multiple teeth. These dental implants serve as substitutes for missing teeth, giving our patients renewed confidence in their biting and chewing and a healthy smile.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

The main benefit of dental treatments is to restore function and aesthetics. If you have lost teeth through failed root canal treatment or poor oral health, restorative dentistry such as implant treatment can help you eat and smile normally. Our top benefits of treatment include:

  • Prevents Further Loss of Bone. When we lose teeth, the surrounding bone shrinks back or resorbs; This can affect the teeth on either side, causing periodontal issues and movement.
  • Restores Bite Function. When we lose teeth, it affects how we bite. Thanks to implants and bone grafting, you can bite and chew as normal without extra strain on the remaining teeth.
  • Supports Facial Structure. Losing teeth can lead to a hollow or sunken appearance. Quality dental implants can have a rejuvenating effect on your appearance.
  • Helps speech. In some cases, prosthetics – like dentures – can affect how you speak. However, implants are much more like a regular tooth so that you can speak normally.

What’s involved in the process?

Initial Consultation

We will take a series of diagnostic scans and X-rays during your initial consultation and ensure you have a healthy bone structure. At this point, we will work with you to create a treatment plan that will help restore your smile. You can expect us to communicate openly and honestly about:

 

  1.  Implant treatment options
  2. The length of time treatment will take
  3. Payment plans available to help you spread the cost of treatment.

Treatment

  1. Having dental implants involves placing a titanium screw into the jawbone. The screws attach to the bone and act as roots or anchors before fitting a realistic-looking crown on top. In some cases, a temporary crown is provided on the same day. Still, for most patients, there are a further two steps.
  2. Once the implant has had time to settle, we uncover the implant and add an abutment on top. This allows the gum to heal in the correct shape, so the crown looks natural with the gum sitting flush against the new tooth.
  3. The last stage is to fit your new realistic-looking crown. Your crown will be made to match the shape and colour of your existing teeth for a flawless finish.

Conclusions

Clinical research reliably informs us that dental implants are a safe method of tooth replacement. They are considered non-invasive and provide the same function as natural teeth. Implanted teeth also last longer than other types of tooth replacements. They do not rely on cement, sealant, or glue to remain in place, meaning an all-round quality dental treatment.
