Will treatment be painful?
No, the implants will be placed painlessly under local anaesthetic with only mild post operative discomfort.
How long do I have to wait after the implants are placed to have teeth attached?
Depending on the complexity of individual cases it is usually between two and four months of healing and integration of the implants before the new teeth are attached
Will I be able to eat and wear my dentures after surgery?
We will advise soft diet for a short time after surgery and will fit a soft cushion liner under your dentures so they can be worn normally.
A dental implant is a small but strong post made from biocompatible. Under local aesthetic, it is inserted into the jaw bone in place of the missing tooth root and acts as a support for the tooth.
The healing phase is between 6 and 12 weeks depending on the individual medical situation. During this period the implant becomes securely attached to the jaw bone – a process called osseointegration. Once healed, this artificial root acts as a base for fixing individual crowns, multi-tooth bridges, or an entire denture.
Titanium is a biocompatible metal, non-toxic and well-tolerated by the body. Its many medical uses include surgical implements and implants, where high strength and low weight are preferred. One of its most important medical applications is in implants. Those made from titanium have been shown to bond very well to living bone and can last for decades.
