Dental implants are a revolutionary tooth replacement option for those who have lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, or other reasons. They can be used to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or even for full arch replacement. Dental implants are incredibly durable and can last for many years with proper care and maintenance, making them a long-term solution for missing teeth. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth, allowing patients to chew, speak, and smile with confidence and comfort. Dental implants are a popular choice for those seeking a permanent and comfortable solution for tooth loss.
Single Tooth Implant – When you only have one tooth missing this can be replaced with an individual implant. This is the best treatment option available to not only restore the functionality of the missing tooth, but to support the health of the neighbouring teeth and persevere the jaw bone.
Implant Supported Bridge – You may have heard of a dental bridge before as the term is also used with treatment related to dentures. With an implant supported bridge we will fill multiple gaps in your mouth with minimal surgically placed implants. For example, if you have three teeth missing in a row you will not have an implant placed in the middle, only within the neighbouring gaps.
Full Set – Sometimes all of your upper or lower teeth will need replacing. This will be achieved with a full set. Although most adults have 32 teeth this does not mean you will need to have 32 implants placed. Lower jaws need a minimum of two implants and the upper jaw requires a minimum of four. It’s not uncommon for the upper jaw to require more implants due to the fact that the bone is softer compared to the lower jaw.
During your consultation, we will assess your suitability for treatment and your dentist will also answer any questions you may have regarding dental implants.
Once you are deemed suitable, during the follow-up consultation we will discuss your bespoke implant treatment plan and all x-rays will be carried out.
