How Implants can help:
Eligibility Criteria for Dental Implants:
Dental implants are suitable for just about any adult who has a single missing tooth, or multiple missing teeth in the upper and/or lower arches.
Provided that you are in good dental and general health, you will probably be suitable for this treatment. It is important for all dental implant patients to prove that they maintain good oral hygiene routines at home, and do not frequently suffer from gingival infections. You will find out far more about dental implants during your initial consultation with our experts.
Questions during your consultation are definitely encouraged as we want to make sure you are 100% comfortable with the treatment and everything it involves.
How Dental Implants Work:
Unlike bridges and dentures, Implant screws are embedded underneath the gums, directly into the jawbone. This is what gives an implant its strength and resilience in the oral cavity. It is an invasive surgical procedure but we offer a number of sedation options that ensure a completely stress-free and painless experience for patients.
Once the screw has been fitted into place, it is allowed to fuse with the surrounding bone which acts as an anchor for the implant. A porcelain crown is then fitted on top of this screw which marks the completion of the procedure.
