When might a dental implant be needed?

If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental implant might be a suitable option if you:

  • have a fully grown, healthy jawbone
  • don’t have gum disease
  • don’t have conditions that affect bone healing

Your dentist will discuss with you whether a dental implant procedure is suitable for you.

What happens during a dental implant procedure?

A dental implant is usually done in stages over a few months, with a series of minor operations and tests.

  • First, scans and X-rays are done to give the dentist a very clear picture of where to place the implant.
  • The dental implant is fitted into the jawbone in a minor operation. You will usually be given an anaesthetic so that you don’t feel pain during the surgery.
  • In a few months, the bone grows around the dental implant.
  • Once the implant is stable, the dentist will create a foundation for the new tooth or teeth.
  • Sometime later, the dentist will take a mould of the mouth to make the artificial tooth or teeth.
  • Finally, the artificial tooth or teeth are screwed or cemented into the foundation.

It’s a slow process, with quite a few visits to the dentist and possibly some trips to have scans or x-rays.

What to expect after a dental implant

After any of the minor operations, you might have bruising, pain and swelling of the gums and face. You may also have some bleeding.

You might need to eat soft foods after each surgery to let the dental implant site heal.

You will  be advised to keep your natural and artificial teeth clean by brushing and flossing, and have regular dental check-ups.

It’s never too late for orthodontic treatment! Maybe you did not have access to braces growing up or you think now your teeth are more crooked than before, it is never too late to address these concerns.

We strongly believe in early detection of children’s orthodontic problems. As in most cases it is easier to intervene this issue while the child is still growing to achieve a healthier and straighter teeth and reduce the risk of the need for tooth removal in later stage. These less invasive treatments can improve oral function, teeth cleaning, nose breathing and jaw growth.

We do offer wide range of options for different treatment needs.
