Dental implants are titanium screws with porcelain crowns attached to replace one or more missing teeth. They have become a popular means of tooth replacement, however, they may not be the only option for your situation. Kate can determine whether dental implants are a good option for you and she will discuss the pros and cons of implant surgery versus other less invasive options you may wish to consider. Implants can be placed under local anaesthetic and are typically less uncomfortable during placement and healing than dental extraction. Sometimes a simultaneous graft procedure is required for aesthetic cases.
Dental implants require regular long-term maintenance to check that the gum and bone around the implant is healthy and Kate can carry this out for you. She will also ensure you are cleaning effectively around the implant at home to prevent any complications.
