More info

Implants can be used to replace missing teeth and maybe suitable for people who cannot use removable dentures or prefer a more natural solution. They are titanium rods which are surgically placed into the jawbone and used as anchors for bridges or crowns. Dental Implants improve the appearance and function of your dentition. However, they are not suitable for everyone and we will advise you of the procedures associated with implants.

If you want a more permanent solution to dentures that improves your 'chew ability' and helps you avoid the 'sunken cheeks' look often associated with missing teeth, implants could be for you.

Due to the amount of surgery involved this procedure is expensive but this is the closest you will come to "re-growing" your natural teeth. They are far superior to removable dentures and virtually undetectable. They will save you time and have long term health benefits compared with other treatments on offer.

Treatment procedure

1. The first step to your new teeth is an examination of your current situation by your Hundental dentist.

2. Your dentist will take x-rays to see how your jawbone looks to determine the position for placing the dental implant. Often an impression will be taken of your current teeth and jawbone.

3. You’ll receive local anesthesia and/or sedation. Your dentist will place your dental implant. Your dentist will place a temporary tooth to your dental implant, so you can eat during the healing process. At the same time, your dentist take an impression from which your final tooth will be made. You’ll receive the required medicines for free.

4. After your dentist has determined that your gums have sufficiently healed you’ll have your final tooth fitted and cemented. Your dentist will ensure that your bite is correct and you’re pleased with the results.

Materials that can be placed in the body are substances that the body does not reject and do not cause any impairment to the tissues. These are called bio-materials. Titanium is the bio-material that implants are made of and are therefore readily accepted by the body without any allergic reactions. Dental implants are usually cylinder or screw shaped, have a diameter of 3,3-6,0 mm and are 9-16 mm in length.

It generally takes about six months for the surgical implant to heal before the final installation of the artificial tooth or teeth can be finished. During this healing period, the bone cells grow into the micro-pores created on the surface of the implant, grow around the anchor and firmly hold it in place, for a long time.
