So what are the benefits? Many people now choose this procedure to improve their quality of life. There are various ways in which dental implants can make you smile more…
Implants provide an excellent way both aesthetically and functionally of closing the gap created by the loss of a single tooth.
In these cases too, implants provide an ideal alterative to conventional methods. The implants serve as additional support abutments for carrying a bridge.
Implants can be utilised in two ways if no teeth are left. Implants are often used as rigid support for bar-borne removable dentures which are light-weight and completely stable.
Alternatively up to 12 implants can be placed, onto which is attached a permanent bridge.
Implants are inserted painlessly using a gentle surgical procedure usually under local anaesthetic. The implant is inserted by a Consultant Oral Surgeon, the wound is closed and the implant is left undisturbed for between 6 and 12 weeks so that the bone can remodel around the implant providing a strong bond. The healing process will be continually monitored to assess the bonding process.
