Dental Implants Somerset West

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are metal posts we insert into the jawbone beneath the gums, providing support for an artificial tooth or artificial teeth. With dental implants, dentures and bridges won't shift around or slip out of your mouth, making it highly beneficial when talking and eating. In addition, this secure fit helps dentures, bridges, and individual crowns feel more natural and comfortable, unlike conventional dentures and bridges.

Who would benefit from dental implants?

For some people, conventional bridges and dentures are an inconvenience to their lifestyle, as they have to interact with people all the time and might be embarrassed by dentures or bridges that shift around whenever they speak. In this case, dental implants are ideal as they prevent the shifting of bridges and dentures.

To receive dental implants, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You should also be committed to maintaining meticulous dental hygiene and regular dental visits to ensure the long-term success of dental implants.

What is the procedure for dental implants?

Receiving dental implants is an invasive procedure, so we numb the area or provide sedation. If the natural tooth is still present, we need to extract it before the implant. 

During the surgery, the metal implant is surgically placed into the jawbone. This will need to heal before we can proceed with the following procedure. The gum needs to heal around the implant to be completely secure. Once healed, we will attach a post that eventually connects to the artificial tooth. 

Your final procedure will involve placing the crown, bridges or dentures on the implants and ensuring they are secure. These will be made from impressions of your natural teeth.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants can last for over 15 years with proper care and regular check-ups. Of course, there may be instances where they need to be tightened or replaced. However, with regular dental visits, we can frequently assess the state of your implants.
