Do you have a missing tooth that you want to fill, that is both excellent in quality yet relatively affordable to access?
A Dental Implant may be the solution for you!
A Dental Implant is a dental operation procedure to replace a missing tooth. Through a series of minor operations, dental implants are permanently attached to your jawbone.
The process looks like this:
A series of scans and x-rays are firstly conducted in order to give dentists a clear picture of where to place the implant relative to your jaw and mouth structure.
A dental implant, which is a piece of metal that resembles a small screw is permanently attached to the jawbone in place of where the missing tooth’s roots were. This procedure is conducted with a local anaesthetic so that it is a relatively comfortable and pain-free experience.
Over a number of months, the bones around the jaw start to grow around the implant, which helps to hold it in place. A series of dental visits will take place to ensure that this is the case.
Once the implant is sufficiently stable, the dentist will make a mould of your mouth that will be used to make an artificial tooth or number of teeth.
An artificial tooth or crown, is then specifically tailor-made to look like your remaining teeth in shape, size and colour, is then placed and fixated on the dental implant ‘screw’ to fill the gap.
You can then enjoy the teeth and smile that you once had!
Dental Implant procedure is a slow process that will involve a number of dental visits, as well as a series of scans and x-rays to ensure that your treatment is on track; especially having to be reliant on the slow natural growth of bone in the jaw around the implant.
