What Are Tooth Implants?
Tooth implants, also known as dental implants, are a popular and effective long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. They are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials, usually titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone.
The Steps Involved in a Single Implant Procedure
The process of getting a single tooth implant typically involves several steps:
Our implant dentist will examine your medical history, undertake a physical examination and take x-rays. This will determine if you have sufficient jawbone to support a tooth implant or if you need a bone graft. They can also answer any questions or address concerns you may have. An appointment for your dental implant (and bone graft, if needed) is made if you both agree this is the best course of action.
- If you need a bone graft, this can be done during the same appointment as your dental implant. In some cases, if there is excessive bone loss, it may need to be done first and allowed to settle before the implant surgery.
- The implant itself is a common surgical procedure. You can choose a local anaesthetic or to be put asleep (Sleep Dentistry).
- After the dental implant is in place, there is a wait of 3 – 4 months for osseo-integration (where new bone grows around the dental implant).
An appointment is scheduled to take an impression of the position of the dental implant and the adjacent teeth. A porcelain implant tooth is created in a shade that best matches the rest of your teeth.
An appointment is made to insert the dental implant and ensure it looks and functions as it should. Your new artificial tooth is now in place and is ready to be used.

Frequently Asked Questions
In this short guide, we will address common questions about dental implants, their benefits, candidacy, the procedure, aftercare, and more. Our goal is to provide you with valuable insights and help you make informed decisions about your oral health.
Dental implant candidacy depends on various factors such as overall health, oral health, and the condition of your jawbone. Generally, candidates should have good oral hygiene, adequate bone density, and be free of certain health conditions that could interfere with the healing process.
The dental implant procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia, so you won’t feel pain during the surgery.
Some discomfort and swelling may be experienced after the procedure, but it can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last for many years, and they have the potential to last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are essential for their longevity.
Yes, dental implants are easy to care for. You can care for them just like your natural teeth, which includes brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. There’s no need for special adhesives or removal, as with dentures.
Yes, one of the significant benefits of dental implants is that they allow you to eat and chew normally. They provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth, making it easy to enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions.
Age alone is not a determining factor for dental implant candidacy. As long as you have good oral and overall health, you can consider dental implants. Some older individuals may need additional medical evaluations before undergoing the procedure.
