There is nothing like a perfect smile with a complete set of teeth. Dental implants are an artificial replacement for a tooth’s root. They fit directly into your jawbone and hold crowns or false teeth in place like roots support natural teeth; if you look after your teeth and implants properly, they can last for the rest of your life.
Let’s talk about the benefits of dental implants, especially if you’re feeling a bit anxious. Dental implants are truly remarkable because they offer multiple advantages. First and foremost, they can restore your smile, enhance your self-confidence and transform your overall oral health. The best part? The treatment is virtually pain-free! We will ensure that you’re completely comfortable and numb throughout the procedure, and we can even offer sedation. Once the implants are in place, they feel like natural teeth, enabling you to eat, speak, and laugh without concerns. Dental implants are a long-lasting solution unlike other tooth replacement options, meaning you won’t have to deal with frequent replacements or adjustments.
The dental implant procedure is a well-planned and carefully executed process that aims to restore your missing teeth with natural-looking and long-lasting replacements. It involves several steps that our implant surgeons perform. We start with an initial consultation and evaluation, during which your dentist will assess your oral health, evaluate your bone density, and discuss your treatment options. This thorough evaluation helps determine your suitability for dental implants. We will also produce a treatment plan tailored specifically to your needs.
The next step involves the placement of the dental implant. This is done under local anaesthesia, and the procedure is painless. The dentist will surgically position the implant into your jaw, acting as a sturdy foundation for the artificial tooth. After the implant is placed, healing and osseointegration take place. The implant fuses with the surrounding bone during this time, creating a strong and stable bond. Once the healing process is complete, an abutment is attached to the implant, which acts as a connector between the implant and the final dental restoration. Finally, a custom-made crown is securely placed onto the abutment, matching your natural teeth’ colour, shape, and size. The result is a functional and aesthetically pleasing tooth replacement that blends seamlessly with your smile.
Guided implant surgery is an advanced technique that utilises cutting-edge technology to enhance the precision and predictability of the implant placement process. It involves using computer-generated 3D imaging and virtual planning software to create a detailed map of your mouth, guiding the entire surgical procedure. With the help of this technology, your dentist can accurately determine the optimal position and angle for the dental implants before the actual surgery takes place. This precise planning reduces the error margin and ensures that the implants are placed in the ideal locations for optimal functionality and aesthetics. Guided dental implant surgery adds confidence and reliability to the procedure, allowing for smoother and more successful outcomes.
Guided dental implant surgery minimises the risk of complications and potential damage to surrounding structures such as nerves, sinuses, and neighbouring teeth. Precise preoperative planning helps identify potential challenges or limitations before the surgery, enabling us to plan strategies to overcome them. Additionally, guided implant surgery often requires smaller incisions and reduces surgical time, leading to quicker and more comfortable patient recovery. The accuracy of the procedure also promotes better long-term stability and longevity of the implants, ensuring that you can enjoy your new teeth for years to come. Guided dental implant surgery is a remarkable advancement that combines technology and expertise to provide patients with a safer, more efficient, and highly successful dental implant experience.
