What are dental implants?
Dental implantation is the process of replacing missing teeth or teeth that cannot be saved by conventional means.
Suitability for dental implants
Dental Implants can range from single-tooth replacement to a complete upper and lower arch replacement.
Implants are made of titanium and the crowns are usually made of high-grade porcelain fused to precious metals such as gold.
You can choose to have the dental implant procedure in the dental chair under local anaesthetic or in hospital under general anaesthetic. We will consult with you beforehand to establish your suitability, the time requirements and a complete costing for the procedure.
You are a candidate for dental implants if you:
- Have adequate bone (in terms of both quality and volume)
- Practise good oral hygiene
- Meet the general medical requirements.
Bone quality and volume will be assessed by an examination.
