A dental implant is a small titanium screw that acts like a tooth root to secure a tooth in the bone, providing a strong foundation to support a tooth that is secured on top of it.
Implants offer a number of benefits over alternative solutions, such as a longer lifetime, and won’t contribute to bone loss, which can occur under a dental bridge.
The traditional process of fitting dental implants involves surgery followed by at least three months of wearing transitional dentures supported by your gums before a second surgery to expose the implant and fit your new teeth.
Single Dental Implants
At United Smile Centres we can fit implants and new teeth, on the same day. We use the latest techniques, pioneered in North America, and the newest generation of implants. This enables patients to leave the surgery the same day with new fixed teeth and a brand new smile. There will be much less discomfort, faster healing and in the majority of cases no second surgery is required.
