A dental implant is a substitute for a real tooth. Currently there are many implant systems available and your dentist will be able to identify the best option for each patient
Once fitted, the implant and its components will form a strong foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures.
Implants can last many years, however some habits such as heavy drinking or smoking can increase the number of problems associated with dental implants. Each case is different and if you do have any medical problems then speak to your doctor or dentist prior to starting any treatment – it is only in some circumstances that health problems prevent the use of dental implants altogether.
We would ask the patient to attend an initial consultation when the dentist will assess the possibility of providing implant treatment. Patients will answer detailed questions concerning their medical history and there will be a complete examination of the mouth to discover the nature and extent of any current dental problems. Usually x-rays will be taken and a full 3D Scan will be recommended so the dentist is able to have the best tools to evaluate and plan the treatment.
This extended examination will be used to determine the optimal position for an implant, how many implants can be placed in the gap and the quality and volume of bone that is available.
Finance at 0% interest is offered to our patients and all information is provided after the dentist has established which treatment route is the best for the patient.
