How do Implants work?
If you are missing just one natural tooth, then one implant is normally all that will be needed to provide a replacement. Dental implants fuse to your jawbone and provide stable support for artificial teeth.
Placed by a professionally trained implant surgeon, a successfully integrated implant is impossible to separate and has a long life span, that with good health, should last a lifetime. Contact us for details.
Am I suitable for Dental Implants?
For any advanced dental treatment, your oral and general health should be assessed to ensure the success of your dental implants. This will be done by our specialist Implant & Oral Surgeon, Dr Yong, who has had advanced training in dental implantology.
Factors that determine success of treatment include your general health, whether you smoke, the health of your mouth and remaining teeth, any medication that you take, and the amounts of bone available at the proposed implant site. Every case is different therefore each patient will receive a personalised treatment plan to suit them.
Do Dental Implants hurt?
Dental Implants can be carried out under local anesthetic, but can be offered with IV sedation for anxious patients. There will be no pain during the procedure but you may feel some discomfort following the procedure. This is usual as with all procedures of this nature and is part of the healing process.
