What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a small screw that acts as an artificial tooth root when placed in the jawbone. It is made of titanium, a metal well documented for integrating with human bone to create a stable foundation. An abutment is then fitted to the top of the implant to create an anchor for the placement of a crown, bridge, or prosthesis.

A proven therapy since the 1960s,

Dental implants have been used successfully in millions of people worldwide as a long-term solution for renewed quality of life.

An overview for the implant process 

Assessment and treatment planning – your dentist will perform a thorough assessment of your mouth and discuss all your treatment options with you. Once you have decided what would be best for you, your dentist will create a treatment plan that is tailored specifically to you, including expected timescale and costs.

Implant placement – dental implants are usually placed under local anaesthesia as this a relatively minor surgical procedure.

Healing – the time needed for healing will vary, the gums and bone are left to heal for between six weeks and six months. In these cases, a temporary tooth may be provided, so you will not be left with a gap. During the treatment planning step your dentist will advise what’s best for you.

Restoration – this involves attaching the false tooth (or teeth) to the dental implant. The restoration will have usually been made by a dental technician, specifically for your mouth.

Maintenance – it is important that the dental implant and surrounding gums are kept clean. You will be given oral hygiene instructions and will need to visit the dentist and dental hygienist regularly in order to keep your dental implant(s) in good condition.

Solutions for every situation
By acting as a tooth root, a dental implant provides a stable foundation for a replacement tooth that stays securely in place, so you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

The Benefits of having Dental Implants

Functional and aesthetic – They look, feel and function like your natural teeth.

Maintain facial structure – Anchoring dental implants in the jawbone stimulates bone tissue and gums, ensuring an attractive, aesthetic result while helping to maintain facial structures.

Biocompatibility – Dental implants are made of pure titanium. This material is perfectly compatible with the body and over time becomes completely integrated with the bone tissue. Extensive scientific documentation from clinical studies confirms that implants enable very good results — over both the short- and long-term.

Long-term solution – Dentsply Sirona Implants are backed by decades of clinical documentation and proven with long-term patient use. Replacement materials are available even after many years. Implant abutments can be replaced at any time or adjusted to conform to a subsequent change in the prosthetic situation. Dentsply Sirona offers a lifetime warranty to clinicians for titanium clinical components.
