What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a stronger, more attractive option for replacing missing or lost teeth. Unlike removable dentures or bridges, a dental implant becomes a permanent fixture in your mouth.

The implant itself is an artificial tooth root made of titanium. This post-shaped implant secures into the jaw, where the bone grows around it to hold the implant securely in place. Attached to the implant is a lifelike porcelain tooth. It is colour-matched to the surrounding natural teeth, making the artificial tooth indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.

Dental Implant Treatment Benefits

There are many advantages when a patient opts for dental implant treatment, which include:

FAQs About Dental Implants

Are you on the fence about dental implants? We receive many questions about the treatment and care of dental implants and want to provide you with the information you need to feel good moving forward with your treatment. Here are some of the common questions we receive about dental implants:

Can I have multiple implants?
Yes. Theoretically, you could have an implant for each of your 32 natural teeth, but that many are unnecessary. When we see you for your consultation, we can make treatment recommendations based on the number of teeth we need to replace.
How long does dental implant treatment take?
In some cases, implants can be fitted in a day, but most cases usually take approximately three to four months. This amount of time allows for proper osseointegration, which is the process of the bone fusing to the titanium implant.
Is dental implant treatment uncomfortable?

Some patients feel a little uneasy hearing that dental implants are a surgical procedure. Though surgical, it is safe and easier than a tooth extraction. Our experienced team ensures you are as comfortable as possible by checking in with you during the treatment and using anaesthetic to numb the area.

Do I need to stay off work to recover from dental implant treatment?
Every patient is different; some returned to work on the same day their implants were fitted. Once we have assessed your needs, we will give you more specific instructions about possible recovery time.
Can anybody have a dental implant?
Most people who have missing teeth are suitable for implants. There are very few situations where we do not advise implants, but the only way to find out is to meet with one of our cosmetic dentists. Contact us to book your consultation.

Our dental implants look, feel, and function like actual teeth. There are many reasons to have a dental implant, and outstanding aesthetics are just one of them.
