Implants are a surgical procedure that replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth.
Implants are practical alternatives to removable dentures or bridges, and are used for cosmetic or functional reasons.
Same day dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, where they act as the roots of the missing teeth.
Because the titanium in the same day dental implants fuses with the jawbone, the implants will not slip, make noise, or cause bone damage in the way that bridges or fixed dentures might.
The implants are made of titanium that does not cause any allergic reaction and is accepted by the body.

There are many benefits of dental implants over other tooth replacement options.
When your natural teeth are missing, your jawbone structure will begin to shrink to close any gaps caused by missing roots. This deterioration of the jawbone will, in turn, cause your face to age rapidly. Dental implants fill these gaps with artificial titanium roots preserving the structure and appearance of your jawbone.
Dentures tend to slip while eating or speaking, making them quite uncomfortable and often embarrassing. With dental implants, you won’t have that problem since they are secured directly to your jawbone. You will be able to perform everyday tasks like eating, drinking and talking like you would with your natural teeth!
Poorly fitted dentures or bridges will create areas where plaque can accumulate, which can result in gum disease or tooth decay for the nearby teeth. This problem is eliminated with dental implants because, just like natural teeth, implants provide easy access to the spaces between the teeth allowing you to clean them regularly.
As long as they are correctly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime without needing a replacement. The initial cost may be higher for dental implants, but in the long run, it will be more cost-efficient than the replacement costs associated with other options like dentures and bridges.
With dental implants, you will be able to preserve the appearance of your smile, speak and chew without difficulty and properly care for your oral hygiene. This long-lasting solution for tooth loss and decay not only feels natural; it will also restore the confidence that you had before experiencing tooth loss.

Dental implants can be suitable for adults of any age. Implants aren’t recommended for under 18s as the jaw is still growing and the bone tissue hasn’t fully developed yet.
In your initial consultation, you’ll be assessed for your suitability for treatment. Occasionally, dental implants might not be recommended for some patients for medical reasons. For example, if you have previously had radiotherapy in your jaw or if you have diabetes which isn’t under control.
If you smoke, you’ll be advised to give up before having an implant fitted. Research shows that the rate of implant failure is much higher for those who smoke than those who don’t.
Yes. Dentures are a popular solution to replace missing teeth, but people sometimes choose to replace their dentures with implants because they’re fixed into the jaw and eliminate the need for adhesives.
Implants are fitted under local anaesthetic which numbs the mouth, so you shouldn’t feel your implant being fitted.
After your surgery, you’ll likely have some pain, bruising and swelling which will probably last around a week. This is normal, and you’ll be able to go to work the day after your procedure.
Your pain should ease with over-the-counter painkillers. If you’re concerned that your pain is abnormal, you should always consult your dentist.
If you look after them properly, implants can last as long as your natural teeth. It’s important to make sure you care for your implant properly to get the maximum lifespan out of it and reduce the risk of infection.
The time it takes for dental implants to be placed varies from person to person. The average length of time is between three and nine months, but this might be longer depending on your individual needs, and whether you need any preparation work such as extractions or bone grafts.
Dental implants are inserted directly into the jaw, so your dentist needs to make sure there’s enough bone to support the implant. If you don’t have enough, it’s possible to graft bone from your other body parts, commonly your shin or hip, and insert it into the jaw.
A bone graft may be performed under local anesthetic, or in hospital under general anesthetic, depending on where the bone comes from. This may add some time to having your implant fitted, but can be necessary for the implant to be a success. Although this may sound intimidating, it’s a common surgery and is nothing to be worried about.
Dental implants are screwed into your jaw bone to hold a new, false tooth in place, whereas bridges use the surrounding teeth as support for a false tooth or teeth. Sometimes, some healthy parts of your natural teeth have to be cut away to support bridges, whereas dental implants do not harm the surrounding teeth.
