Dental Implants

What is a Dental Implant?

You have lost one or several teeth and would like a fixed solution. We can place a titanium implant securely into the bone in place of the tooth root. We may then attach a crown, bridge or denture onto the top.

Traditional methods for replacing teeth for instance include dentures and bridgework. Both of these however have their own drawbacks. Dentures have the potential to be loose and as a result may cause embarrassment. Dental bridgework can be destructive to adjacent teeth and as a result make them weaker. Replacing missing teeth with implants will provide a fixed solution which consequently preserves surrounding bone.

Dental Implants transmit the force of chewing to the jaw bone, and as a result help to conserve it. In the case of dentures or conventional bridges, the bone gradually reduces. Therefore this can change your facial expression and appearance.

Dental Implant Types

The most common types of dental implants are Single Implants, Multiple Implants and Implant Retained Dentures

Single Implant

An implant is a great option for a single missing tooth, both at the front or the back of the mouth.

Multiple Implants

If more than one tooth is missing, there may still be implant options open to you.

Implant Retained Dentures

Dentures can be a compromise and may be uncomfortable or move when you talk and eat.

The Key Benefits of a Dental Implant?

  • They look and also perform like natural teeth
  • Durability due to a 95% success rate
  • No coverage on the palate and hence no gagging or loss of comfort
  • Stability as a result of the implants being fixed, therefore no worry of your teeth falling out
  • Dental implant placement does not require the reduction of adjacent teeth in contrast to dental bridges

Our 3 Step Process

Strategic planning is an important step in the phase of any treatment. Below outlines our 3 step Dental Implant plan.

Assessment and Planning

Firstly, we must evaluate your needs, clinical history and perform a thorough assessment. We will also perform diagnostic scans such as a CBCT (3D X-ray) to help plan your case. Above all it is important to evaluate each case to find the best solution.


The implants are placed securely into the bone and a number of sutures may be placed. 10-14 days later the sutures are removed and the implants left to integrate into the bone. In some circumstances the implants may have a temporary crown placed at the same time of placement but the permanent restorations are generally placed at approximately 12 weeks.


Implant treatment does not end when the prosthesis is placed. It is very important to follow your dentists instructions on cleaning as well as attending all of the check-ups. This is the only way to ensure your implant treatment is durable over the long term.
