Denture Implants

Dental implants are an innovative and highly effective treatment for replacing teeth that are missing, providing a long-term solution that improves mouth functionality and smile aesthetics.

How do Implants work?

Dental implants are small titanium screws which are fixed into holes in the jaw bone. The aim of the implant process is to replace the root of the missing tooth. Dental implants can replace numerous missing teeth; a single missing tooth can be replaced using a crown, while a denture can be combined with implants to replace several missing teeth.

The treatment can take several months for completion because it takes time for the implants to integrate into the jaw bone (this process is known as osseointegration). Following the initial consultation, the first treatment session will involve drilling sockets into the jaw bone and then fitting the implants. The second session is where the new tooth restoration is attached, with treatment options including a dental bridge, crown or denture.

Treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic to prevent pain and discomfort.

What are the benefits?

Dental implants have revolutionised modern dentistry and are an efficient solution for patients who have lost their natural teeth. The implants are designed to complete the process of osseointegration without interfering with neighbouring teeth or irritating gum tissue. Dental implants provide amazing aesthetics, unrivalled functionality and last for several years. Although they cost more than alternative treatments for tooth replacement, they do last longer and represent a better long-term investment, also working to reduce bone loss. Replacing missing teeth has numerous benefits, from improving the aesthetic of the smile and boosting confidence to enabling you to eat properly and speak clearly, as well as reducing the risk of oral diseases like gum disease and tooth decay.
