Jackie chose to have an implant at our clinic and as she explained, the process brought sound results with little inconvenience.
A dental implant is a titanium replacement for a natural root, placed into your jaw to mimic nature. This supports a tooth like ceramic crown, although in general terms, the combination of both are known as implants.
They are now a well established, long lasting treatment, using exceptionally well engineered materials. Implants can replace one tooth, or all your teeth and do so in a way which will look entirely natural.
An ideal answer to tooth loss through an accident, or oral conditions, with detailed planning an important first step.
Precise imaging and an implantologist’s experience help to establish the best plan for your needs. Considering your medical history can be useful and your wishes.
The implants are for you and solutions should be based on positive, realistic discussion. Options should be clearly explained, any individual risks talked through, or less common medical requirements.
Our specialist can consider whether bone augmentation may be required, or periodontal treatment. Their ability to analyse the anatomy of your jaw assists in appreciating whether different techniques should be applied.
With any surgery there can be risks, although with well prepared individual solutions, the success rate of dental implants is high.
Dental Implant Procedure
We added the video above, as this is well made and a good demonstration of the implant principle. Your treatment may be with other systems, selected to match need.
The finest materials will always be used, although procedure and the stages involved can vary. Dental implants can be quite quick, or at other times there will be a requirement for healing processes at intervals.
This could be for the implant process, or where bone regeneration, or other additional treatment comes into play. A treatment schedule will have been provided following your assessment and normally proves accurate.
Anaesthesia uses can also vary, by choice, or due to individual procedures. Implants are however a quite pain free process and an efficient one. Over time, they fuse with your jaw, helping the bone to remain stable in a natural way.
