Dental Implants

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant maybe something you are considering if you decide you would like to replace a missing tooth. Perhaps you would like the confidence to smile more or you may be experiencing a shrinking jaw bone.

The benefits of a dental implant?

There are many benefits for getting an implant. Some of the most common reasons that we see in our dental surgery is using dental implants for increasing our client's confidence, and dental health.

Dental implants can be a very cost-effective method to great dental health. If you are experiencing a shrinking jaw which sometimes happens because the jaw bone is no longer able to be stimulated by your own teeth and tooth roots, your dentures might need to be refitted, meaning more visits to the dentist.

Missing teeth may have further effect on your appearance as your mouth is no longer supported, especially your lips, which have the tendency to turn inwards and move your jaw bone forwards.

The dental implant process:

Step 1 - The Implant is Placed:
The dental implant is placed in the mouth and surgically fused.

Step 2 - The Implant is Restored: Natural Dentistry - Gordon

In this step the replica tooth or crown is fitted on top of the dental implant.

The first procedure carried out in dental implantology is quite complex and only very highly skilled dentists are qualified to carry this procedure out. The team at Natural Dentistry are experts in the field of dental implants and are able to offer the dental implant treatment from
start to finish, for your ease and convenience.

The materials we use:

We use Ceramic Implants in the Natural Dentistry practice which act and look like a natural and very healthy tooth. They are a metal-free alternative made by a trusted brand (Straumann) in Switzerland and available in over 70 countries.

On top of each tooth, a crown or bridge will be used which is the visible part of your tooth. For this we use a Titanium implant which is biocompatible and not seen as a foreign object to the body. The brand is the Nobel Biocare Titanium implants.
