What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implant treatment provides a genuine life-changing solution to many dental problems and is one of the most exciting areas of modern dentistry to work in.

Replacing missing teeth

The loss or damage of even a single tooth can have a huge impact on everyday life, teeth function and self-esteem. People lose their teeth for many reasons, sometimes due to an accident, illness or poor maintenance. Other people simply inherit poor teeth. Whatever the reasons for tooth loss, it can have a negative impact on your quality of life. You may no longer eat many of the foods that you once enjoyed, you may be self-conscious about your appearance, you may stop smiling or you may experience pain from ill-fitting dentures.

Dental implants are a lasting solution to tooth loss and can be used in both aesthetic and functional treatments. Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, or would like a secure option to anchor dentures, dental implants could be the best solution.

What does the treatment involve?

  • A titanium post is placed in the jaw bone to support a replacement tooth
  • This acts like the root of a natural tooth
  • The implant is usually left for some weeks to allow the bone to form a strong bond to the implant
  • Once the implant has integrated with the bone, an artificial tooth is attached for a natural look
  • The artificial tooth is custom made to ensure the ideal colour, shape and size

Dental Implants offer some really exciting benefits to patients:

  • Restoring the mouth as closely as possible to its natural state
  • Increasing comfort by eliminating loose fitting dentures
  • An end to restricting food choices due to loose fitting dentures
  • Avoid filing down healthy neighbouring teeth (as with a conventional bridge)
  • Preserve facial structure by virtually stopping deterioration of the jaw
  • Providing a more natural smile and improving appearance and self-esteem
