About Dental Implants

Dental implants often provide the most natural replacement to your teeth. When a single tooth has been replaced with an implant-supported crown, the new tooth should appear through the gum like a natural tooth. At this clinic we are strive to achieve excellence in our clinical work. We offer a service which may take longer and cost slightly more than our competitors, however our patients appreciate the efforts to achieve world class results.

Implants are intended to last a lifetime; they are the only long-term solution. With dental implants you would expect some routine maintenance, but not replacement of the implants. The superstructure (crown) can wear out, but is relatively easy to replace. Implants can fail, though this is rare and is dependent upon many factors including operator experience, your genetic make-up, your state of health, implant system, your habits (smoking and maintenance) the type of bone and the loading (how you bite) conditions.

A dental implant explainedA dental implant is a replacement for a natural tooth root, rather like a screw placed into the jawbone. The implant is placed into the bone; at some later stage an 'abutment' (which is a connecting component) is connected. The abutment links the fixture to the restoration; this may be a single crown, bridge or a support for a denture.

Implant dentistry is in general far more successful than conventional dentistry. This is due to many factors. Perhaps the most important reason for the good success is the care taken in planning the case. All too often traditional dentistry has taken a 'one tooth' approach where the dentist provides a repair to the broken part of the tooth, or mouth. It is important to look beyond this, identify the cause of problems and eliminate or reduce the impact of these where possible.

A dental implant is a strong item, certainly strong enough for the application when used correctly. Correct usage includes placement and subsequent loading. It is important that there are enough implants to support the anticipated load. This may be difficult to predict, as you may have had reduced function without teeth; new implant retained teeth will increase that function dramatically – and therefore loading can be greater. When missing only a few teeth in the upper jaw I tend to suggest one implant for each missing tooth, certainly at the back of the jaw. This will provide the best distribution of biting forces.
