Implant Supported Dentures


Dental implants can be used to replace teeth and anchor dentures

They are made from titanium and are surgically placed into the jaw bone. The implant then functions like the root of your missing tooth.

The procedure to place implants is carried out in a dental surgery and only requires a local anaesthetic, though very nervous patients can also be accommodated.

The recovery time after implant placement varies with the amount of implants placed, but is normally within 2-3 days. Patients are prescribed painkillers during this time, so most have no postoperative pain. though the area may feel a little bruised.

They can be used to replace single or multiple teeth.

They are extremely long lasting with a success rate of over 99%

The standard procedure is to place the implant and then wait a period of 3-6 months for the implant to fuse with the bone before fitting a crown, bridge or denture.

After this healing period, impressions are taken for the final crown or bridge, or fixed to the new denture.
