A dental implant is a revolutionary way of restoring your smile by replacing the roots of the teeth. This procedure involves surgically placing a titanium screw into the gum and bone to which an artificial tooth is attached. Implant can replace a single missing tooth or multiple implants can help bridge fix bridge work or stabilise removable dentures. Dental implants do not require any special cleaning or extra attention like bridges and dentures. They require regular cleaning and flossing, just like your natural teeth

Dental implants are suited to anyone with good oral health and adequate bone in the jaw. Your dentist will carry out x-rays or dental CT scan (if required) to check the bone and gum levels.

Habits such as smoking or heavy drinking can compromise the treatment and your dentist may refuse to carry out the treatment for you.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

  • Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth
  • Improved speech and self-esteem. Dental implants allow you to speak clearly, smile and laugh with complete confidence.
  • Improved comfort and eating. Dental implants function like your natural teeth, allowing you to eat and enjoy the textures and flavours of your favourite foods.
  • Convenience. Dental implants are permanently fixed unlike removable dentures that have to be taken out of the mouth for cleaning and maintenance.
