If you have a missing tooth or a number of gaps in your smile, you may be considering dental implant treatment. Dental implants represent a long-term solution for tooth loss. At Advance Dental, our experienced dentists use precision techniques to fit implants seamlessly and create stunning smiles.
About dental implants
Dental implants are titanium devices, which are used to anchor a replacement tooth. The implant takes on the role of the lost root, and once it has settled into the tissue in the jaw bone, it can be attached to a crown, denture or bridge to produce a natural-looking, functional tooth. Implants last for several years, they look and work like strong, natural teeth, and they give you the freedom and confidence to eat, smile and speak without any anxiety at all. With implants, we can replace a single tooth, a few missing teeth or a full arch, as implants are compatible with a range of restorations.
Fitting dental implants
Before your implants are placed, our dentists will use advanced technology to pinpoint the optimum location for the devices. Using a CT scanner, our dentists will locate the best sites for your implants. They can then place the implants under sedation or local anaesthetic by creating a small opening in the bone tissue and then inserting and securing the titanium post. After closing the gum flap, the implant will be left to heal through a process called osseointegration. When this is complete, the permanent crown, bridge or denture can be attached.
