What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth.
Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed.
The Implant is then used to support a new tooth (crowns) or teeth (bridge/Denture).
How are Dental Implants fixed to my mouth?
They are made of a pure titanium, which is surface treated to mimic bone and so the bone believes it is part of itself and then growns onto and around it. This gives it the feeling of a normal tooth.
Why are Dental Implants better than other solutions?
Implants are solidly fixed to the bone.
They don’t require damaging other teeth to support the new teeth unlike bridges
They have an incredibly high success rate. Measured over 10 years, implants have a success rate of 97-99% in the lower jaw and about 95% in the upper jaw
Are Dental Implants safe?
The implants we use at this practice, are manufactured by a British/Swiss Implant company in strictly sterile conditions and are made of a lightweight biocompatible material. These have decades of research and development behind them.
Dental Implants were first placed in 1967, so we have nearly 50 years of research to show that they are safe.
Is it expensive?
Though it can cost more than a bridge its longevity and avoidance of damage to adjacent teeth can make it a very cost effective solution. A single tooth implant can cost as little as £166.67 per month for 12 months.
Dental Implant Case Studies
Case 1 – Implants
This lady had two of her back teeth missing.
Two implants were placed to replace these missing teeth
Case 2 – Implants
This gentleman lost his front tooth when the root split.
An implant was placed to replace the missing root and a crown fixed into the implant.
Case 3 – Implants
This young lady was sent to us by her own dental practitioner following a horrific fall that caused her to lose her two front teeth. The crowns that had replaced them were crumbling and there was a large amount of infection underneath them.
Two implants were placed and crowns fixed onto the implants creating a natural looking, infection free smile.
