How do dental implants work?

Dental implants, essentially, are artificial tooth roots, which are placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. They are typically made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, which are then surgically inserted into the jawbone.

Once the implants are in place, they fuse with the bone, providing a sturdy and durable foundation for replacement teeth.

Dental implants can also be used to support dentures or bridges. They improve the appearance of your smile, restore function and help maintain the integrity of the jawbone.

How do I get dental implants?

This procedure typically involves several appointments over a course of a few months.

After the implants are placed, a healing period is required to allow the bone to fuse with the implant. Once this process is complete, a customised dental restoration (such as a crown, bridge or denture) is attached to the implant(s).

Dental implants have a high success rate and are considered a safe and effective treatment option for many patients. However, not everyone is a good candidate for implants. Your dentist can evaluate your individual situation to determine whether dental implants are right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental implant is a small titanium or Zirconia post that is surgically planted into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth root. The implant is then restored with a crown, bridge or a denture to resemble natural tooth/teeth.

No, this process is not painful. The dentist may use a local anesthetic to numb the area if the procedure is being performed on a sensitive tooth.

When properly maintained, dental implants can last for many years. However, just like natural teeth, they require regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups to ensure their longevity. Success of implants depends on gum health, habits (smoking, alcohol consumption), certain underlying medical conditions and medication.

The procedure itself is done under local anaesthesia and is generally pain-free. Sometimes patients prefer to have sedation during implant placement. However, mild discomfort, swelling and bruising may occur afterward, but this can be managed with pain medication.

The entire process can take several months, as it involves multiple stages, including the initial consultation, implant placement, and crown, bridge or denture placement. However, recovery times vary from individual to individual.

The cost of getting dental implants will vary, depending on the number of teeth being replaced, the materials used, and any additional treatments needed (bone grafting). The treatment estimate will be given after your implant consultation. 

As with any surgery, there are risks associated with dental implants. The risks include pain, swelling, bruising, infection, nerve damage, and implant failure. However, these risks are relatively low and can be minimised.
