What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial fixtures, typically a titanium screw, which are used to replace the roots of missing natural teeth. When surgically placed under strictly controlled protocols, they become firmly integrated with living bone. Once they unite with the jaw-bone, implants provide solid anchorage for the attachment of new crowns, bridgework or dentures.
Dental implant therapy is tailor made to each individual patient’s needs and requirements to create a stable foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like their natural teeth.

Can I have a Dental Implant?

Willow Tree Dental is committed to preventative dentistry which tries to save teeth where possible, but if you have missing teeth or need to have a tooth extracted you may want to consider replacement with implants. With modern techniques even patients with reduced bone density and low sinus cavities can now have implants.
Our implant consultations are designed to give patients complete information and a professional opinion and determines whether you are a suitable candidate for implants. Our experienced dentist will discuss with you all the available treatment options. It is also an opportunity for you to discuss any specific dental problems and to have your questions answered.

Functional benefits of Dental Implants

  • Look and feel like natural teeth.
  • Function in the same way as natural teeth.
  • Restored chewing function.
  • Ability to clean like natural teeth.
  • Healthy adjacent teeth do not have to be filed down to act as supports for the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maintain the bone height beneath the replaced tooth.
  • Chewing forces are transmitted through the implant to the bone to stimulate the natural process of bone renewal.
  • Preserved bone height helps to maintain a good appearance, both of the restored teeth and of the face

Success of Dental Implant Surgery

When placed with care and expertise, implants can last for a very long time. With good general health and good oral hygiene, as with your natural teeth, there is little reason for implants to fail. Regular hygienist appointments are recommended for implant longevity. Very few implants fail. However, smoking, bond quality and some medical therapies can affect the success of implants.
