Dental Implants

Woman smiling on the couchIf you’re missing teeth or need to have a tooth removed, The Smile Factory team will discuss all suitable replacement options with you. Dental implants are viewed as the gold standard when it comes to tooth restoration; they can improve your appearance, the function of your teeth and are an effective long-term solution.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small, titanium post inserted into your jawbone. Once the area heals, a replacement tooth can be put into position. It can restore a single tooth, multiple teeth or support a bridge or denture.

Benefits of Dental Implants

There are numerous advantages associated with dental implants. They

  • Enhance your overall appearance
  • Allow you to speak easier
  • Boost self-confidence
  • Are strong and stable
  • Allow you to eat what you want

As long as your jaw has stopped growing, you’re old enough for a dental implant. This treatment is particularly suited to the senior population. You must be in a reasonable state of general and dental health, which we’ll discuss with you at your initial consultation.

Your treatment is carefully planned to ensure your comfort, with surgery carried out next door to our practice. You can receive a temporary tooth if required until the area has fully healed and your permanent solution is placed. Your new teeth will look and function just like natural teeth.

Is the process of getting implants painful?

No; you will be given anaesthetic prior to the procedure so you will be kept entirely comfortable.

ow long can I expect my implants to last?

When cared for properly, including brushing and flossing regularly and seeing your dentist for regular checkups, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them an outstanding investment.

Will my insurance cover implants?

Typically, insurance doesn’t cover implants, but we offer convenient payment plans through DentiCare.
