Within the last ten years dental implants have excelled to become one of the most innovative dentistry treatments currently available. Implants are thought to be the most effective solution for missing teeth and here at Neilston Dental, we are proud to offer this revolutionary service for our patients.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an effective replacement for a tooth root and it is made from high-grade titanium. The precision-made device is incredibly durable and designed to effectively ‘bond’ with tissue and bone to create a strong structure which can then support replacement teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Following a thorough consultation and additional appointments for bone restoration where relevant, the implants are placed comfortably into the jaw under local anaesthetic.
Following the placement appointment the jawbone and implants are left to fuse, something which may take several weeks to happen.
Depending on the type of treatment you are having, the crowns may be attached during the implant appointment, or they may be attached after the implant has bonded to the bone.
