IMPLANTS AT A1 DENTAL
If you are missing a tooth or teeth, you may be an ideal candidate for high-tech dental implants. No other treatment comes as close to creating the look and feel of a real tooth – and no other treatment has the potential to last your lifetime.
Implant solutions are flexible and can be designed to fit your personal requirements. Options include:
Replacing a single missing tooth – just a single implant is needed
Replacing a series of two or more missing teeth – implants replace crowns with a bridge in between
Replacing an entire arch (or both arches) – several implants are used to anchor a complete set of replacement teeth
Securing dentures – a solution that offers a substantial improvement over having to use adhesive
Can anyone have implants?
Implants can only be considered for healthy mouths – so some patients may find that the process of getting implants will first require other dental work, such as bone grafting, gum surgery or orthodontics. Make an appointment for an initial consultation to assess your suitability for implants.
How does the dental implant procedure work?
Dental implant surgery is high-tech and minimally invasive. With the help of 3D scanning and a computer-guided dental laser, an implant can be placed so accurately that it involves the least possible trauma and therefore a swift recovery time. Once the implant has been placed in the jaw, you will need to wait a few weeks for the integration process to take place – this is where your natural bone tissue grows around the implant, securing it in place for life. Once integration has successfully completed, you’ll be able to return for the final fitting of your new tooth.
Are implants safe?
Yes, dental implants are a well-established treatment, supported by over 30 years of clinical evidence and a 95% success rate or higher. Implants actually improve the health of your jaw by increasing blood flow to an area that would otherwise atrophy.
