If you have missing teeth you may consider options to replace them.
Dental Implants provide the foundations and supporting mechanism which allows custom made crowns, bridges and dentures to be securely held in place. This long term solution is becoming increasingly popular for both cosmetic and functional reasons, and may also help to retain bone levels giving support to the long term shape of the face.
The bone is gently uncovered and a space is carefully created using a small series of drills. The titanium implant is then placed into this space. Often a temporary crown, bridge or denture may be placed at this stage, until the gum and bone mature. This
Over the following months, the bone fuses to the implant, making it a suitable fixture to attach the permanent crown, bridge or denture, which is custom made according to your needs, preferences and existing teeth.
How long it takes
On average, the entire process of from start to finish (ie permanent crown, bridge or denture fitted) can take 3 to 9 months (roughly 5 appointments)
- Initial(free) Implant Consultation: approx 15 minutes
- Record Taking: thorough assessment taking moulds, photo's and Xrays (approx 20 mins)
- Placement: Placing the implant (60 to 90 mins)
- Attach the temporary crown, bridge or denture (20 mins). This is often done at the same time as placement
- 3 months afer the permanent crown, bridge or denture is placed
