Dental implants

Dental implants are permanent artificial tooth roots that support replacement teeth for a natural-looking and functional smile.


How many teeth can be replaced by dental implants, depending on the patient and need

Dental Implants essentially are the closest thing in replacing a lost natural tooth. Implants simulate natural teeth in appearance and function and consist of 3 components;

  1. The titanium implant itself,
  2. The abutment,
  3. And the porcelain crown.

The implant simulates the root portion of a tooth, the part you don’t see. It acts as a foundation to hold in place the part of the tooth which you see in the mouth, called the crown. The abutment is merely a connector linking the crown (usually made of porcelain) to the implant.

Implants can range from a single unit to full arch replacements.

What is the success rate of an Implant?

Once an implant has integrated it is very difficult to reverse the process. It would take accidental trauma to damage it. People who grind their teeth at night can in extreme cases damage their implant. However implant design and night guards worn by patient will counteract this. Once you have been deemed a suitable candidate for implants, then long term success rate (ie 15 years) is in the high 90%.

What is the length of treatment?

From Implant placement to fitting of crown is about 8 weeks, longer if there is not enough bone and the site needs to be augmented.

Is there pain or discomfort?

Many patients report implant surgery to be much less troublesome than they expected. With modern anaesthesia and close attention to post operative care you can expect minimal discomfort.
