Dental implants can be a great solution to missing, broken, or decaying teeth, and they just so happen to be one of our fields of expertise.
A dental implant looks like a small screw – made from titanium – which is securely fused into the precise position of the missing tooth and acts as a ‘root’ to hold a false tooth or crown in place. Once fitted, the implant will provide long-term support for your new replacement tooth (or multiple teeth) which will be colour and shade matched to your natural teeth.
Thanks to advances in implant dentistry and Dr. Missan’s advanced training and experience, our dental implant options are even less invasive and more patient-friendly than before, and will look and feel exactly like your natural teeth.
We can lose teeth for a number of reasons; including an accident or facial impact, infection, or due to poor oral health or tooth decay.
Dental implants are an aesthetically pleasing, permanent alternative to teeth replacement treatments like dentures, which can be uncomfortable and socially awkward. We use dental implants to replace both single and multiple teeth, and in some cases, we can even replace multiple teeth with just one implant; with one high quality implant screw able to support a bridge of up to four teeth in a row.
The All-on-4 technique is a new and innovative approach that secures a full arch of artificial teeth in the jaw without the need for individual screws.
The process involves the use of four strategically placed implants which form a stable and sturdy base for the arch of false teeth to be attached to. The procedure uses state-of-the-art technology such as 3D X-rays and surgical planning software to ensure absolute precision and accuracy, which also means it can be a quick treatment, so you don't have to spend hours in the dental chair.
After a tooth has been removed, the healed jaw bone may be too thin to place a dental implant.
In some cases, the bone can be expanded to fit an implant, but if this isn’t possible or if the facial aesthetics would be compromised, bone grafting is a solution. This involves taking bone from another part of the mouth, such as the chin or back of the jaw, and fusing it onto the site where the dental implant is to be placed. The procedure usually takes 2-4 months to heal properly before the implant can then be placed.
Lovely welcoming practice. Excellent service for me and my child who was made to feel at ease. Practice seemed clean and well organised. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
