How are dental implants fitted?
Placing dental implants can involve several appointments and minor surgery. We will administer local anaesthesia or other sedation to make sure you don't feel pain during the procedure.
After taking x-rays of your mouth and planning your treatment, our dentists will make an incision in your gum and insert the implant or implants into your jaw bone.
Once the implant is secure in your jaw, it will fuse with the jaw bone over several months. When this bonding is complete, the implant is uncovered and connected to a small metal post that secures and supports an artificial tooth or teeth.
Implants can be covered by a crown, a fixed bridge or full or partial dentures to replace as many missing teeth as needed.
