Dental implants: Everything you need to know

A dental implant is a long-term and durable solution to missing teeth.

Implants consist of a titanium rod, which is placed into the jawbone, which supports a porcelain prosthetic tooth.

Unlike removable dentures, an implant is fixed and permanent.

Your new implant will look and feel like a natural tooth and requires minimal maintenance.

How long do dental implants last?

With the correct care, maintenance and oral health routine, your implants can last 25 years. They are intended to be a permanent tooth replacement.

What are dental implants used for?

Dental implants are used as a permanent and fixed solution to tooth loss.

They help prevent bone loss and prevent deterioration in the jaw structure.

By replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant, you can prevent infection and subsequent gum disease.

They are used as a permanent alternative to removable dentures as they are more comfortable and easier to maintain.

How painful is a dental implant?

Patients will often be concerned about the procedure and whether it will be painful. However, this is not the case.

A local anaesthetic is used during the procedure to alleviate any pain. You should not feel any pain, however, you will feel pressure in your mouth during the implantation.

Following the procedure, you may experience dull pain or soreness in and around the area, but this is easily remedied with regular over-the-counter painkillers.

How much do dental implants cost?
