Dental implants can be used to retain independent teeth or full arches of crowns, bridgework and dentures.
The photos below show a truly amazing transformation using dental implants by Dr Russell Blanchard that was extremely rewarding for the team and for the patient.
Complex or simple, implant dentistry can be truly life changing, providing a solution to the emotional loss of one or many teeth.
Dental implants have revolutionised how we replace missing teeth since they were first developed almost 30 years ago. At StoneRocks Dental Implant Clinic, an implant can be used to replace anything from a single tooth to an entire set of teeth and can be used to support crowns, bridges or dentures and their impact are often life changing for people.
A dental implant is an excellent way of replacing one or more teeth. It consists of two parts, a titanium screw that is placed into the jawbone and a porcelain crown that is fitted directly to it.
The dental implant titanium screw can be fitted either at the time of the extraction (an immediate placement) or later on as part of a minor surgical procedure. Once the screw is in place it must be left for several weeks to allow it to integrate fully with the jawbone. Once it is fully fused in this way it becomes incredibly strong and can support either one single crown or multiple units as part of an implant supported bridge. The crown is usually screwed in place and can be removed easily at a later date if required.
Implants can be used to replace a full set of missing teeth by supporting a denture or a full arch of fixed bridgework. Both of these techniques can provide a very comfortable set of teeth to chew with, which can literally be life changing for many patients.
