Dental Implants

Losing a tooth has more implications than purely as a cosmetic issue. Apart from feeling self-conscious, if not treated a missing tooth gap can lead to permanent damage as adjacent teeth tend to shift and so the lips and cheek may lose their support causing a sunken appearance. Dental implants are an ideal solution to replace missing teeth.

Dental implants are root-like structures made of titanium, a material which is compatible with body.

Benefits of having dental implants:

  • They provide a long-term solution
  • They re-create the natural structure of the tooth
  • They preserve facial contours and appearance.
  • There is no need to sacrifice healthy teeth to replace a missing tooth
No one will be able to tell you have a dental implant as they blend with your natural teeth. The only way to discover a dental implant is by a dental radiograph showing the metal that replaced the root of the tooth.
You can expect some minor discomfort, but that can generally be managed with pain killers and anti-inflammatories.
At first you should avoid eating and drinking for a few hours. After that, we recommend you eat soft, nutritious foods and keep well hydrated. We also provide instructions on how to care for your new implants during healing.
After a few months when the dental implant is fused successfully and is fully functional, your dental implant will last many years if proper oral hygiene and care are maintained.
