What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small metal screws that are placed in the jaw in place of a missing tooth. Once established, crowns, bridges and dentures can be fixed onto the implants, creating a natural-looking and stable restoration.
Why would I need to have dental implant treatment?
Implant dentistry offers a clinically proven and safe solution to getting a great smile back and being able to bite and chew with confidence. Implants are a natural-looking way to replace missing teeth.
Does the treatment hurt?
The surgery itself is usually done in the dental chair and you will be given the option of having sedation if you feel particularly anxious. Although you will feel some pressure on your gums during the procedure, you will not feel any pain due to local anaesthesia. Our skilled team will make every effort to make you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout.
How do I look after my dental implants?
Once placed, you will need to take extra care of your teeth and gums to ensure they remain healthy and free of dental decay or gum diseases. It is important to understand that your implant will have to be looked after as if it was a natural tooth and that infections can arise if the proper regular hygiene is not carried out. With the help of our team you will be guided on how to best look after your implant so you can enjoy your new smile for years to come.
