What is It?
Am I a suitable candidate for implants?
Some medical conditions and the medication can also have an adverse effect on implants. These include diabetes, cancer and gastric reflux.
It’s important to fully discuss your medical history with your dentist in the planning stages of the implant procedure.
What to Expect
The titanium implant is surgically placed in the bone of your jaw by a specialist surgeon. It is then left for between three to six months so the bone can integrate and heal around the implant.
Our dentists will then check that the implant is securely fused to the bone, and a permanent crown will be attached to the implant.
After healing, the implant will restore the tooth gap like natural teeth. Care for the implant in the same way as teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups.
