What is an Implant how do they work?

An implant refers to a small titanium screw which is placed where your tooth used to be.  We can then use this as an anchor to attach a precision made tooth (or teeth) replacement. 

Implants can be used as anchors to replace single teeth or alternatively a single implant can act as an anchor to replace multiple teeth in a row. 

If you have a removable plate, implants can also be used as precision attachments into which a plate can slot into. This means you can be confident your plate will no longer move around when eating or talking ever again.

Frequently asked questions

Am I able to have an implant?


Prior to the placement of any implant we will examine your mouth. We will be looking at the health of your teeth and gums and how much bone you have to support a potential implant. To assist our examinations we will take a highly detailed X-ray with our on-site cone beam CT scanner which will show us the thickness of your bone and allow us to visualise precisely where your implant will go. In some situations, for various reaons, you may not have enough bone to support an implant. In these cases we may place some additional bone prior to placing an implant to maximise the support, this is called a 'bone graft'. In only the rarest of cases will you not have enough bone AND not be suitable for a graft. In these situations we are one of the few practices who can offer a specialist treatment called a 'zygomatic implant'. This is a highly specialised treatment involving placing the implant into the surrounding bones around the mouth.




I have been told I haven't enough bone support for an implant


If you have been told this we can offer two solutions: - We can provide bone grafting to provide additional bone to support the implant - We are one of the few practices to offer 'zygomatic implants' which are a highly specialised treatment involving carefully placing the implant in the surrounding bones of the mouth.




How long will my implant last?


An implant is effectively a brand new tooth, like you got when you were a child and your adult teeth came in. It does even have added benefits over a natural tooth in that it isn't subject to decay (from sugary sweets/drinks) and so should last a very long time. However, implants are susceptible to inflammation and infection around the implant if it isn't kept clean but we are able to offer you advice and the regular professional cleaning you need to maximise the cleanliness and lifespan of your implant.




Is the treatment going to be painful?


No You will be comfortably numb throughout. This combined with the TV on the ceiling playing your favourite TV program/movie throughout will make the whole procedure seem more like a relaxing break.
