What are Implants
Dental Implants are a very stable and successful way of replacing missing teeth. They allow for a gap to be filled with a realistic looking ceramic tooth or teeth.
They are comprised of 3 parts:
- A Titanium Post- This is inserted into the jawbone (the Implant itself, which acts like the root of a natural tooth).
- Abutment- This provides structure for the restoration
- Restoration- this can be a Crown, Bridge or Denture, which fits onto the abutment(s) and provides the visible part of the implant in your mouth.
Implant treatment normally has two stages.
First, the Titanium Implant is placed during a minor surgical procedure. This is done under Local Anaesthetic, the same as you would have for a filling for example. You can opt to have Sedation for this stage.
Approximately 8 weeks later, when the implant has healed into your jaw, the abutment and replacement teeth are attached to it.
In some situations it is possible for temporary teeth to be attached to an implant at the time of fitting.
