In most cases the Implant placement is extremely quick and practically pain free. In fact most people find implant placement to be a more pleasant procedure than having a tooth removed. If you still feel nervous or apprehensive we can provide you with oral or intravenous sedation so that you can be away with the fairies while you have your implants placed.
We will never leave you with a visible gap and will always make sure your smile looks great throughout treatment. At the end of the treatment you will have a brand new tooth that looks, feels and functions exactly like a natural tooth!
Immediate Tooth Replacement
Do you require teeth in a day? If you are about to lose a tooth we can arrange to have it removed and for the placement of an implant at the same visit so that nobody would ever know what happened. Immediate implant placement is possible if there is no infection and there is sufficient bone.
Single Tooth Replacement
If only one tooth is missing a single dental implant is the gold standard method of tooth replacement. It will not damage adjacent teeth as with a bridge or denture. It will maintain the positions of the remaining teeth by preventing them moving into the space. It will preserve the bone and therefore help to maintain the gum architecture around the teeth and will allow for superior aesthetic results compared to other forms of treatment.
Multiple Teeth Replacements
If more than one tooth has been lost it is possible to have 2 or more implants adjacent to one another. It is also possible to have implants joined together with a bridge so that you do not need an individual implant per tooth.
This procedure can be much more cost effective than individual implant replacements and as the implants join together as a fixed bridge, less surgery is involved. This means minimal cutting of the gums and quicker healing!
