Full Dental Implants
Dental Implants are placed when teeth are missing and gaps are present. Implants are small titanium rods which are surgically placed into the bone. After 3 months the bone around the Implants has integrated to hold the implants firmly in place. X-rays are taken to check this and then a post and crown is attached.
For patients who have no teeth full mouth dental implants can be placed (usually around 6 implants). A 10 or 12 unit bridge can be placed on these which is a fixed option, or they can be used to secure a full denture in place.
Dental Implants usually take about an hour for placement depending on how many implants is needed. Placement is carried out under sterile conditions which ensure the success of your treatment. The success rate is about 98%.
