Many of us have had the unfortunate experience of getting a tooth extracted.
Having the missing tooth replaced with a dental implant is by far the best option, as it feels and functions just like a real tooth. All you need to do is fix an appointment with our qualified dentists to ascertain your suitability for the procedure.
The procedure consists of two stages: the surgical stage, where the screw is inserted in the jaw to act as the root of the tooth, and the restorative stage where a restoration is placed over the implant.
Over time, the bone fuses around the implant as it does with your own teeth and therefore is a long term stable tooth replacement option.
Implant surgery has considerably advanced over the past decade with a very high success rate. Also, the restoration options have been modified to benefit the patients.
Restoration options include:
- Single tooth replacement
- Dental Bridges – A bridge can be fabricated to sit on the implants and replace additional missing teeth
- All-on-4 – Implant retained fixed dentures that replace an entire upper or lower jaw of missing teeth
- Removable Implant retained dentures – Dentures that clip onto implants for stability
