Dental implants

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a small but very strong 'post' made from biocompatible metals. Under local anesthetic, it is inserted into the jaw bone in place of the missing tooth root and acts as a support for a replacement tooth.

Dental implant therapy is today's long-term, state of the art restoration technique that can cover all indications.

It has been scientifically tested and used in the last three decades by qualified dentists and surgeons worldwide.

We use Straumann titanium dental implants.

A dental implant more than just a way to get new teeth, it's a way to get your smile - and your confidence - back.

What does the treatment entail?

The dental implant is surgically placed under local anesthesia. The appointment is around one hour in length.

The healing phase usually lasts between 8 weeks and a few months. During this period, ideally, the bone around the implant grows and integrates with the implant surface - a process called osseointegration.

Good oral hygiene is vital in the healing stage of the treatment. Once healed, this artificial root acts as a base for fixing individual crowns, multi-tooth bridges, or an entire dental prosthesis.

The dental laboratory uses an impression of the implant site to produce the crown, bridge or denture. The dentist will place the restoration after the dental implant has healed.
