What is a dental implant?

A dental Implant is a titanium “root” that integrates directly with the surrounding bone and replaces the function of the natural tooth. Neoss Implants are made using the best quality medical grade titanium, which is well known for its proven biocompatibility, and have a treated surface to facilitate bone integration.

The aim is to improve your health, chewing function and/or aesthetic appearance and once healing and restoration is complete you will be able to enjoy a wide variety of foods again.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

1) Dental implants make you feel comfortable

You can eat whatever you want – your teeth are strong and stable. They look and feel like your own teeth, too. You know that you have chosen the best solution and can smile a confident and beaming smile.

2) Implants provide a lifelong solution

When you maintain good oral hygiene, your implants can last your whole life. This makes implants an efficient and economic long term solution.

3) Dental implants support your health

When you lose a tooth, the jaw bone and gum starts to resorb, and increasingly so if you lose several teeth. Implants protect healthy teeth, prevent bone loss and help you keep your natural look.

 

When can dental implants be used?

It does not matter whether teeth were lost through accident, disease or caries, dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement for many patients.

Your dentist will inform you which implant treatment is most suitable for you.

Dental implants can be used when:

  • a single tooth is missing – crowns
  • several teeth are missing – bridges
  • all teeth are missing – bridges or dentures

 

How does it work?

A. Treatment procedure

After detailed consultation and examination, a cost projection will be prepared by your dentist. Only when you are comfortable with what will happen will your surgery take place and the implant(s) will be inserted.

When your dentist is satisfied with the stability of your implant, the final restoration can take place.

B. Time frame

Usually, four to six visits are required over two to six months. Your dentist will advise you and set up your individual schedule.

Why choose a dental implant over a conventional bridge? Better looks and greater self-confidence

When roots of teeth are missing, the jaw bone degenerates in these areas. Insertion of dental implants prevents bone resorption and you keep your natural look. Conventional bridges do not replace the roots and thus are unable to prevent the degeneration that can change the contours of your face and make you look older.

C. Protection and preservation

To attach a conventional bridge, the dentist often needs to grind down healthy neighboring teeth. Using dental implants, this is usually not necessary – healthy teeth are protected.

D. Performance and value

Dental implants provide better long term benefits than conventional bridges and prostheses. Whilst initial costs may seem high, over a lifetime implants provide an invaluable solution for replacing missing teeth.
