Over the last 30 years, Dental Implants have offered an excellent solution to dental problems as they do not only replace the patient’s lost tooth, but also replace its root. Dental Implants are a solid foundation for artificial teeth that will look, feel, and function in the same way as your natural teeth.
Dental implants are the result of many decades of scientific research by eminent Scientists and Organisations, and also of successful clinical use by thousands of dentists and specialists.
Dental implants are small screws made of titanium or a pure, high quality titanium and zirconium alloy. Titanium and zirconium are biocompatible metals which are easily accepted by the body.
Patients are given a local anaesthesia in the jaw bone while a dental implant is being put into place. The implant replaces the lost tooth, and over a period of 6 to 8 weeks the process of osteoinflation and healing is completed. At that point a crown, bridge or denture is put in place securely over the implant.
The practicality and innovation of Dental Implants gives a result which is the closest possible imitation of your own natural teeth. Implants give patients the comfort and stability they need to chew and talk naturally. And of course, that leads to a confident smile.
Dental Implants have a huge number of essential advantages. There is no need to grind down healthy teeth to put a bridge in place, and the pain which comes with dentures which, over time, no longer fit your mouth perfectly is eliminated. The most important advantage is that implants help protect against the jaw bone loss which occurs with movable dentures.
