A dental implant is a titanium rod that is placed into the jawbone. It is used to support one or more false teeth.

  • Is everyone suitable for implants?You can still have implants if you have some of your own teeth remaining but it does depend on the condition of your bone in your jaw. A number of test will need to be completed prior to placement of the implants. If there is not enough bone present or if it is not healthy enough if may not be possible to place implants without grafting bone into the area first.
  • How long does the treatment take?We will give you a rough idea of the duration of your treatment for your specific case. Usually permanent teeth are fitted 6 to 9 months after the implants are placed although new implant systems allow this time to be as short as 3 months
  • Do implants hurt?Placing the implants does involve a short operation usually under local anesthetic and sometime sedation if you are nervous. You will not feel pain during the procedure but you may have some discomfort in the following days as the healing process continues.
  • Are implants expensive?Treatment planning for implants is done on a case-by-case basis as every patient is different and unfortunately they are a relatively expensive treatment option. However studies show that over 95% of modern implants should last for many years with the right care.
