Our specialist periodontists use dental implants to give you a stunning, functional smile. We have performed over 10,000 implants and take great satisfaction in giving our patients the confidence to smile and eat again. Our implants look and function exactly the same as natural teeth. Whether you need one tooth or a full set, we will carefully assess your needs and develop a personalised treatment plan.
When are tooth implants needed?
Implants are an ideal option if you are in good general health and have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease or an injury, or naturally have an undercrowded mouth.
Leaving a tooth unreplaced can lead to bone loss in your jaw and create larger pathways for bacteria to infect your gums. Also, many patients consider implants an aesthetic necessity, either to preserve the shape of their face or fill the gap left by a missing tooth. With new implants you can regain your confidence.
Implants are a better alternative to ill-fitting, painful dentures, and are the only permanent solution to tooth loss.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a titanium screw surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone as an anchor for a natural-looking replacement tooth or bridge. Implants match the appearance, function, and strength of natural teeth, and with proper maintenance they can last a lifetime. Implants are a quick, easy, and relatively pain-free way to replace broken or missing teeth.
Tooth implants form a strong bond with your jaw bone and supporting ligaments to give a foundation as strong as natural teeth for crowns, bridges, and dentures. Your bones naturally fuse with the implant within six weeks.
Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bones and ligaments in the mouth. Our periodontists specialise in these areas, so we are the ideal experts to perform your implant procedures.
