What is a single dental implant?
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is placed in the jaw bone. The jaw bone fuses to the implant, creating a solid anchor for a restoration. An abutment is placed on top of the implant and then a dental crown sits on top. The result is a prosthetic tooth that functions like a real tooth, distributing the force of your bite evenly across your jaw.
Protect your oral health
A missing tooth will not only damage your confidence, it can also damage surrounding teeth. When you lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth can drift to fill the space. This can lead to further tooth loss. There is also the risk that the jaw and gum will shrink, leading to a sunken appearance in your face. With dental implants, you can maintain jaw density and avoid further dental problems.

Is there a cheaper alternative to dental implants?
A dental bridge would be a cheaper alternative to dental implants. Remember that a dental bridge will need to be replaced and may not last as long as a dental implant.
What is the age limit for dental implants?
There is no upper age limit for dental implants. The patient’s health is the most important consideration. If you aren’t sure if you’re eligible for dental implants, get in touch with Leigh Dental Centre today to find out more.
How long does a dental implant procedure take?
The procedure is completed in multiple steps, typically over a number of months. The first step is to place the implant in your jaw and allow it to heal. Once healed, an abutment is placed and the gum heals around this. Finally, your crown is placed and the restoration is complete. If you require a bone graft before the procedure, it could take longer.
Can I get a dental implant years after extraction?
The time elapsed between losing the tooth and choosing to get dental implants is not typically a problem. Your dentist will be more concerned with your bone density in your jaw. If you lost a tooth 1, 2 or 5 years ago, you could still be a candidate for dental implants. Book your consultation to find out more.
