IMPLANT DENTISTRY

Single/Multiple Implants

Dental implants have revolutionised dentistry, rejuvenated smiles and restored confidence for hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

A dental implant is a fine titanium rod or screw that’s placed precisely into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure and replicates a missing natural tooth root. Titanium has been used extensively and successfully in reconstructive surgery for many years as it naturally integrates with bone.

Many implants can be used and they can also be utilised as supporting structures for a full-mouth tooth replacement. One of the many benefits of dental implants is they look, feel and function just like natural teeth. They also provide an alternative solution to bridges or uncomfortable and loose dentures.

There are many treatment options for Dental Implants and following a careful planning process, we will advise of the best option for you. Some options include:

  • Single tooth replacement
  • Multiple tooth replacement
  • Full arch replacement

In most cases, the procedure to receive a dental implant involves three separate stages:

  • Placement of the implant into the bone
  • Placement of the abutment (also called a connector) to the implant
  • Attachment of the artificial tooth/teeth (crown or bridge) to the abutment.

Like natural teeth, artificial teeth that are not regularly brushed and flossed can develop plaque and tartar along the gum line, which can develop into dental problems such as gum disease. That’s why it’s important to maintain a regular and thorough at-home oral care routine and attend check-up appointments with the Inform Dental team every six months.
