Dental Implants

Replace missing teeth with dental implants

Dental implants offer a modern solution to restore your smile with several key advantages:

Understanding dental implants

Dental implants are a revolutionary advancement in dental technology, providing a robust and permanent solution for missing teeth.

Comprising a titanium post implanted into the jawbone, which acts as a root, and a custom-made crown that sits on top, they offer a highly effective way to restore both the function and aesthetics of your natural teeth.

Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, implants integrate with your jawbone, providing stability and preventing bone loss, making them an excellent long-term investment in your oral health.

Alternatives to dental implants

When considering tooth replacement options, it’s important to compare key aspects of dental implants with alternatives like dentures and bridges

  • Stability: Dental implants provide a secure, stable fit that integrates with the jawbone, unlike dentures which may slip or cause discomfort, particularly when eating or speaking.
  • Bone preservation: Implants help in maintaining and stimulating the jawbone, preventing bone loss. This is a significant benefit not offered by traditional bridges or dentures, which can actually accelerate bone loss due to lack of stimulation.
  • Longevity and cost-effectiveness: While the initial cost of implants might be higher, they often offer greater longevity and require fewer follow-up procedures compared to dentures and bridges. This can make them more cost-effective in the long run.
  • Aesthetic and functional outcome: Implants closely resemble and function like natural teeth, a level of aesthetic and functional replication that can be challenging for dentures and bridges to match.
  • Impact on adjacent teeth: Dental bridges require altering adjacent healthy teeth to anchor the bridge, whereas implants are standalone and don’t affect neighbouring teeth.
  • Maintenance and care: Dentures often require special cleaning and care routines, and bridges need meticulous flossing around the anchor teeth. Implants, on the other hand, can be cared for just like natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing.
  • Overall comfort and convenience: Implants eliminate many of the inconveniences associated with dentures, such as the need for adhesives and concerns about slipping or clicking sounds while talking or eating.

Dental implants procedure

Initial consultation

The first step is a thorough evaluation of your oral health. This assessment is crucial to determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. It involves examining your oral hygiene, jawbone density, and overall dental health to ensure the best possible outcome.

Surgical placement

The next phase involves the surgical insertion of the titanium post into your jawbone. This post serves as a new, artificial root for the missing tooth. The procedure is carried out with precision and care to ensure optimal placement and minimal discomfort.


After the post is placed, a critical healing period follows. During this time, the implant undergoes osseointegration, a process where it fuses with the jawbone to provide a stable foundation. This step is essential for the long-term success of the implant.

Crown attachment

Once the healing process is complete and the implant is securely integrated with the bone, a custom-made crown is attached to the implant. This crown is designed to match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth, resulting in a fully functional and aesthetically pleasing restoration.

How does a dental implant look like?

Same day teeth

Our practice offers revolutionary solutions for full arch restoring, like All-on-Four or All-on-Six dental implants.

All-on-Four dental implants

This technique involves placing four strategically positioned implants in the jaw to support a full arch of teeth.

It’s an ideal option for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth and are looking for a more permanent, hassle-free solution compared to traditional dentures.

The All-on-Four method offers a faster recovery time and can often be completed in a single day, providing immediate functional and aesthetic benefits.

All-on-Six dental implants

Similar to All-on-Four, the All-on-Six technique uses six implants for additional support, making it suitable for patients who require extra stability due to bone density or other factors.

This option ensures a more distributed force, enhancing the durability and lifespan of the implant-supported arch. Like All-on-Four, patients can enjoy almost immediate results with a full set of functional, natural-looking teeth.
