The dental implant procedure has been used to replace missing teeth successfully for a number of decades. With the use of materials that are long-lasting inside the mouth, dental implants can be the best-fixed solution for replacing missing or diseased teeth.
One of the alternatives available to the removable dentures, dental implants instead provide a fixed solution that is also the most natural looking restoration option. Dental implants will help you forget that you ever lost a tooth in the first place as they allow you to eat, speak and maintain your everyday oral health routine.
A consultation with one of our dental surgeons, followed by a personalised treatment plan, will determine if dental implants are best suited to you. Our treatment plan will outline if you have the correct positioning, and a healthy bone structure, to support the implant.
When ready to proceed with our treatment plan for dental implants, we will then schedule an appointment to surgically position your new implant into the jaw bone and gum tissue. Depending on your mouth’s response to the implant, we will then attach a crown to the top of the implant. However, some patients may require a period of healing and time for the bone to grow around the implant before a crown can be attached to the top of the implant. Each patient is different, but in this case, it can typically it can take up to 3 months to attach the crown.
