Preventive dentistry is an essential component of maintaining good oral health, but sometimes dental problems can still occur despite our best efforts. In such cases, restorative dentistry can help to repair and restore damaged teeth, ensuring that they function properly and look great.
One of the most effective and long-lasting restorative dental treatments available today is dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for replacement teeth. They are made of biocompatible materials that are safe and well-tolerated by the body, and they can be used to replace one or more missing teeth.
We offer a range of dental implant treatments to suit the needs of our patients. Our experienced dental professionals use state-of-the-art technology and techniques to ensure that your implant treatment is comfortable, safe, and effective.
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the right solution for you. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, dental implants are permanent and do not require any special care or maintenance beyond regular brushing and flossing.
Our dental implant treatments are tailored to the unique needs of each patient, ensuring that you receive the best possible care. We offer a range of implant options, including single-tooth implants, implant-supported bridges, and implant-supported dentures.
Dental implants are a safe, effective, and long-lasting solution for restoring missing teeth. With proper care and maintenance, they can last a lifetime, making them an excellent investment in your oral health and overall well-being.
If you are interested in learning more about dental implants or any of our other restorative dental treatments, please contact us today to schedule an appointment. Our friendly and knowledgeable dental professionals will be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth.
Are dental implants safe?
Yes, dental implants are safe and well-tolerated by the body. They are made of biocompatible materials that are designed to integrate with the jawbone over time.
What is the implant procedure like?
The implant procedure is usually performed under local anaesthesia and is generally very comfortable. It typically involves placing the implant in the jawbone and allowing it to heal and integrate with the bone before attaching a replacement tooth or teeth.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
A good candidate for dental implants is someone who has lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, or gum disease. They should have good overall health and adequate jawbone density to support the implant. Patients who smoke or have certain medical conditions may need to discuss their eligibility with their dentist.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution for missing teeth, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime. However, it's important to maintain good oral hygiene habits and see your dentist regularly for check-ups to ensure the longevity of your implants.
Is the implant placement procedure painful?
The implant placement procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia, so you won't feel any pain during the procedure. However, you may experience some discomfort and swelling afterwards, which can be managed with pain medication and ice packs.
How do I care for my dental implants?
Caring for your dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth. You should brush and floss regularly and see your dentist for check-ups and cleanings twice a year. Avoid chewing on hard objects like ice or hard candy, and if you grind your teeth, your dentist may recommend a night guard to protect your implants
