What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial substitute for the root portion of your missing natural tooth. When anchored into your jaw-bone the titanium post will support a crown. Where multiple teeth are missing, implants can be fitted to hold bridges or secure dentures firmly in place.
How long does implant treatment take?
This varies from patient to patient. Once the implant has been placed, it is left to heal and integrate with the jawbone for between six weeks to six months, until the implant is stable. During this period, you will be fitted with temporary teeth (bridges) or can continue to wear your dentures.
Can anyone have an implant?
Implants can be placed in any healthy adult with good quality fully developed jaw bones. A decent standard of oral hygiene is also important so following your suitability assessment your dentist may recommend you complete an oral hygiene programme before the implant journey begins.
