Here is an example of Dr. Patel's Implant treatment on a patient. 

Before treatment had started, the patient presented with a missing tooth. After discussing treatment options, the patient opted for a dental implant. The treatment resulted in a very natural and aesthetically pleasing finish.

What are dental implants? 

An implant is an artificial tooth (titanium cylinder) which is screwed into the jaw bone and is very natural in appearance and function. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. The implant itself is a single unit of a 3-unit system, which holds a crown.

The 3 parts to a Complete Dental Implant:

  1. Dental Implant
  2. Abutment
  3. Dental Crown

An abutment is made from either titanium or ceramic material and is a small piece that connects to the tooth Implant and emerges into the oral cavity through the gum. Abutments have to be customised to the implant position and their angulation can be altered to give a realistic tooth appearance. The crown is then anchored or cemented to the abutment.


The Procedure

The process takes a series of appointments. We use the latest scan technology to assess whether you are suitable for an implant. This scan also helps us determine where the implant should be placed within the jawbone. The soft tissues are then prepared under local anaesthesia. A small hole is drilled into the jaw bone in which the dental implant is placed.

Titanium implants are placed in your jaw and merge with your bone. After the bone has grown around the implant, which takes about two to six months, a crown, bridge or over-denture is placed onto the implant.

Our new revolutionised treatment makes the process of fitting implants much quicker and more comfortable.


What are the advantages of dental implants over dentures and bridges?

  • You can gain security and a better quality of life
  • Have an attractive smile
  • Enjoy eating food again.
  • You can speak with confidence.
  • Your dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth and truly are the next best thing to having your own teeth.
  • They are very durable and can last a lifetime.
  • Made from titanium, they replace your tooth roots and integrate with your jawbone, and help to keep the bone healthy and intact.

How long to dental implants last?

Dental implants can last a lifetime. Like any other dental restoration, you need to look after them. Implant supported teeth can still be damaged by trauma and can be affected by gum disease or poor oral hygiene. Regular visits with our hygienist will help.
