Dental implants
A missing tooth can do more than affect your confidence – over time it will also affect the alignment of teeth and increase your risk of developing a dental condition. This is why implants are used to fill any gaps left from tooth loss or extraction.
By choosing a dental implant, you will have the assurance that the treatment will leave your teeth looking and feeling authentic. These replacement teeth are created to match your natural teeth and are held in place using a titanium screw and act as if you had your own tooth back again.
How can it be treated?
Your dentist will provide an anesthetic to numb the mouth before cutting into the gum and drilling a small hole in the area of the jawbone where the implant will be placed. A small abutment will then be screwed into this hole.
How long will it take?
It will usually take 3 to 9 months (depending on the individual) for the gum to heal and the implant to firmly set, so a temporary false tooth may be fitted during this time. Your dentist will advise when the gum is ready for the next operation, at which time they will fit the permanent tooth to the abutment.
