How does this treatment actually work?
As the name suggests, an implant is inserted directly into your jaw at a digitally determined position for ultimate effectiveness and comfort. We use a lot of digital scans to analyse the health of your teeth, eliminating the human error factor and ensuring exact precision. This has enabled us to offer a 98% success rate with this treatment, should you be suitable.
Who is not suitable for this treatment?
Most healthy adults are suitable and there is no upper age limit, however those with bones still growing and developing must wait until their body has reached maturity until they can have an adult tooth replaced with this kind of treatment.
If you have an underlying health or dental condition, such as diabetes or gum disease, then we will ask you to have this under control before continuation, purely because of the additional complications that your body may present with, rendering it unsafe. Of course there are other options available for those of us who may find this treatment unsuitable, but dentists will recommend this durable and long-lasting solution to those who they believe would benefit from it.
How long does this treatment last?
There is no lifetime guarantee for any treatment because of unforeseen complications that can arise, however this procedure boasts our strongest guarantee of several decades of use before maintenance might be suggested. This makes it a wise investment for younger individuals who would otherwise be facing multiple, expensive adaptations to different replacement solutions. It is also a carefree option for older patients.
The reason behind the longevity of this treatment is the titanium material that we use in the implant. Titanium bonds with your bone and creates a stable and secure site to which the visible parts of your teeth are attached.
