Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants are replacements for missing teeth, they are fixed in placed and supported by your jawbone. The implant itself is an artificial replacement for a tooth root and is placed under the gums. Implants is used to support an artificial tooth or multiple teeth. Another word sometimes used to describe an implant is a fixture. If the implant is supporting only one tooth then a crown is placed on top of it – this is the visible part of the tooth replacement in the mouth, above the gum.

Implants can also be used to support multiple teeth. They can support fixed bridges – similar to crowns joined together and removable dentures – false teeth which can be removed from the mouth for cleaning, but are supported in the mouth by implants, much more securely than without any implants. To attach your implant (under your gum), to your crown, bridge or denture (on top of your gum), many implants use a connector, called an abutment

  1. Most adults with good overall health are suitable for treatment.
  2. In general implants are not suitable for children and adolescents as they are usually only used when the jaws have stopped growing.
  3. Smoking or excessive alcohol intake may increase the risk of problems with both the initial healing of implants and their long term maintenance.
  4. A few medical issues can increase the risk of complications from dental implants such as poorly controlled diabetes and certain drugs used for the treatment of cancer and heart disease.
  5. Every case is individual and there are very few absolute contraindications to the placement of implants so don’t be put off if you are concerned about any lifestyle or medical issues, the vast majority of people are still suitable for treatment.
  6. It is important that your gums and any remaining teeth you may have are as healthy as possible so professional cleaning of your gums and teeth may be required prior to treatment.

Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone (A), they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.

A connector – known as an abutment (B) – is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth (C). Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 30 years. They are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth – and even better, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.

When performed by a trained and experienced dental implant dentist, dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry.
