Dental implants have become the treatment of choice for the replacement of missing or severely broken down teeth.
The replacement of missing teeth can be important to restore function and appearance, prevent movement of neighbouring teeth, maintain bone structure and reducing the load on the remaining teeth.
There are numerous types of dental implants and implant restorations. Dr Mark can discuss options and advise you on what is suitable for your situation.
The process will usually involve a thorough assessment of your mouth and dental needs, placement of an implant or implants (if appropriate), a healing period (called osseointegration, usually 10 – 12 weeks), impressions and final restoration with an implant crown or bridge.
