What is a dental implant? The basics…

Dental implants are a stable and permanent method for fixing a patient’s smile.

A titanium screw is implanted into the jawbone and acts as an artificial tooth root. Once healed, a crown is placed on top.

Over 90% of dental implants are successful and can last more than twenty years depending on the quality of care.

Many dental professionals all agree that dental implants are the best restorative method for restoring missing teeth.

Today, they are one of the most prevalent and suitable solutions to repair gaps.

A complex and skilled treatment, dental implants require specific expertise to be carefully and successfully placed.

A thriving and safe procedure, dental implants are becoming the popular alternative to removable dentures.

 The reason why dental implants are so popular

Dental implants are designed to replicate existing, normal teeth.

Because of its success rate, dental implants are believed to be one of the most-trustworthy permanent tooth replacement solutions.

Dental implant treatments:

There is a wide range of implant treatments to accommodate each concern and problem.

For example, patients suffering from severe bone loss will require Zygomatic implants.

Whereas, patients who have only lost a single tooth because of trauma, decay or injury are most suitable for single tooth implants.

Single Tooth Implants

The perfect tooth replacement option – single implants fill open gaps caused by tooth loss.

Custom-designed to blend and balance existing teeth, the implant will flawlessly match and appear natural. More.

All-on-Four/All-on-Six (Same Day Dental Implants)

This treatment offers a permanent stable method to replace multiple missing gaps caused by tooth damage in one or both jaws.

Also known as ‘smile in a day’, the method is a popular solution for patients looking to leave the clinic with a fully restored mouth in one appointment. More.

Implant Retained Dentures

One of the most affordable ways to replace multiple missing teeth, this procedure hooks dentures in place using implants.

It has become an increasingly preferred choice over standard dentures.  More.

Costs, payment plans and finance

Dental implant procedures can greatly differ in price. This is mainly because replacing missing teeth differs per case and patient.

For example, patients with an oral state that is not in good enough condition will need to have underlying issues correct beforehand. Otherwise, implant failure will be more likely.

In comparison to other restorative treatments, implants can be more expensive but equal to be more affordable in the long run.

The high price tag is because the treatment is complex and requires specially qualified dentists.

The Gentle Dental never compromises on quality, we want your implants to be a long term investment.
