Our experienced dental team is dedicated to delivering personalised care, ensuring successful implant placement, and providing exceptional results that enhance both the aesthetics and functionality of your smile.

The Dental Implant Process

Comprehensive Dental Evaluation

Your journey to a confident smile begins with a comprehensive dental evaluation. Our skilled dentists will conduct a thorough examination, including digital imaging and 3D scans, to assess the health of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. This evaluation helps us determine your eligibility for dental implants and allows us to plan the implant procedure accurately.

Personalised Treatment Plan

We believe in providing individualised care tailored to your unique dental needs. Based on the evaluation results, we will create a personalised treatment plan for dental implant placement. During this stage, we will discuss the implant procedure, the number of implants needed, and any preoperative instructions to ensure you are well-informed and comfortable with the process.

Implant Placement

The dental implant procedure involves the precise surgical placement of titanium implant posts into the jawbone. These biocompatible implant posts serve as artificial tooth roots, providing a stable foundation for the replacement teeth. The surgical procedure is performed with utmost precision and often with minimal discomfort, thanks to our team's expertise and the use of advanced technology.

Healing Period

After the implant placement, a healing period is necessary to allow the implant posts to fully integrate with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This integration ensures a solid and durable bond between the implants and the jawbone, creating a sturdy base for the replacement teeth. During the healing period, temporary restorations may be provided to maintain aesthetics and function.

Customised Restorations

Once the implants have successfully integrated with the jawbone, our dental laboratory will meticulously craft custom dental crowns, bridges, or dentures to fit securely onto the implant posts. These restorations are carefully designed to match the shape, size, and colour of your natural teeth, resulting in a beautiful and natural-looking smile that blends seamlessly with your existing dentition.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental implants are advanced restorative devices designed to replace missing teeth. They consist of biocompatible titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots. Through a process called osseointegration, the implants naturally fuse with the jawbone, creating a solid and durable foundation. Custom dental crowns, bridges, or dentures are then securely attached to the implant posts, providing a natural-looking and functional replacement for missing teeth.

In general, most healthy adults with missing teeth can be candidates for dental implants. However, eligibility for implants depends on the overall health of your jawbone and gums. Adequate jawbone density is necessary to support the implants, and healthy gums are crucial for successful implantation. Our experienced dentists will conduct a comprehensive dental evaluation and assess your oral health to determine if dental implants are the right solution for you.

The dental implant procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort during the surgery. Our experienced dental team prioritises patient comfort and uses advanced techniques to make the procedure as gentle as possible. After the surgery, you may experience some mild soreness, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Many patients report that the benefits of dental implants far outweigh any temporary discomfort.

With proper care and regular dental check-ups, dental implants can last a lifetime. The durability and longevity of dental implants are attributed to the osseointegration process, which creates a strong bond between the implants and the jawbone. Additionally, the high-quality materials used in the custom restorations contribute to the long-lasting results of dental implants.

Dental implants require similar care as natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups are essential to maintaining optimal oral health. It is also crucial to avoid smoking and limit the consumption of staining substances, as these can negatively impact the appearance and longevity of the restorations. Our dental team will provide you with specific post-operative care instructions and ongoing guidance to ensure your dental implants remain in excellent condition.
