Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium screws which can be inserted into the jaw bone under local anaesthetic. Before the tooth replacement can be incorporated the jaw bone has to grow onto the dental implant, so that the implant is firmly anchored permanently. The healing process takes from six to twelve weeks, depending on the situation.

Implants can be used for:

single tooth implant

Single tooth implant

A single implant can be used in people who are missing one or more teeth.

bridge implant

Implants used for a bridge

If you have several missing teeth, you may not need an implant root for every missing tooth. Implants can be used to support a dental bridge that is more aesthetic and easier to keep clean than a conventional bridge.

Implant supported denture

An implant supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. You can remove an implant-supported denture easily, but some people prefer to have fixed permanent. The advantages of Implant supported dentures are improved confidence, because patients are no longer afraid the denture might slip out. There is also improved comfort, speech and less bone loss.
