“My new smile is truly lovely. When I see myself it is a splendid reflection of how I feel.”

Eileen, Ireland

READ EILEEN'S FULL STORY

Among young adults, an implant is often used to replace a single tooth lost to a sporting or other accident, or to provide an artificial tooth where your natural tooth has never developed or has been lost.

Implants allow you to replace a single missing tooth with a natural looking crown, restoring your smile. The crown and implant will be completely invisible and look, feel and function like your other natural teeth.

Consultation and Implant procedure

In your initial appointment we carry out a thorough assessment of your mouth, gums and teeth and plan your implant treatment.

We take digital x-rays and study models (plaster casts) of your jaw. We also use computer tomography scans (CT scans) to assess the bone and determine the position of the single implant.

It is important for you to have sufficient bone to support the implant. If you do not have enough bone, you may still have dental implants. We will safely and effectively correct bone deficiency with bone grafting and sinus lifts.

Placing your Implant

At your next appointment we place your implant. This only takes about 30 minutes. Your will be given a local anaesthetic to ensure you do not feel any discomfort during the treatment. If you are anxious about having your implant placed you can have your treatment under sedation.

We then open the gum, drill a small hole into the jaw bone and place the implant into the opening.

The Healing Phase

The gum will heal very quickly. After only a few days we will see you again to ensure that all is well.

Your implant is normally left to heal over 3 to 6 months during which time it becomes an integral part of your jaw bone. To ensure the best results we do not normally fit the permanent crown on the implant during this process. Only if we feel that your bone situation is optimal will the crown be placed on the same day.

Placing the Implant Crown

When the implant is fully healed, we will take a mould of your tooth so that your final implant crown can be custom made.

Your natural looking crown is fixed to the implant. It will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth, so no one will notice the difference.

A missing front tooth is highly visible and can be a source of embarrassment. An implant crown looks and feels like your own tooth. No one need know!
