Implant therapy is a well-proven, state-of-the-art dental technique, which has been scientifically tested and used in the last three decades by qualified dentists and surgeons worldwide.
Dental implants are an artificial root that works like a natural one when a tooth and its root are missing, coupled with a crown on the dental implant that works like a natural tooth.
A dental implant is a very small but strong post made of biocompatible metals which is inserted into the jaw bone in place of the missing tooth root. Such an implant acts as a support for the tooth, and is surgically inserted under local anaesthetic on an outpatient basis. Until the implant is securely attached to the jaw bone (a process called “osseointegration”), a healing phase of between 6 weeks and a few months is necessary, depending on the individual medical situation.
Once the implant has completed integration the final restoration can be created in a variety of materials, including natural looking ceramic materials.
Your dentist can discuss with you if implants are a suitable treatment option and depending on the level of treatment required you may be referred to a specialist practice.
