What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. It is a fixed titanium screw placed directly into the bone that supports the teeth and over time fuses with this bone to function as an artificial tooth root. It can be used to support replacement crowns, bridges and dentures offering both a gold-standard restorative and cosmetic solution to replace a single or several missing teeth.
What are the Different Types of Dental Implants?
- Single tooth replacement
- Multiple replacement teeth
- Neo Arch dental implants
- Overdenture implants
- Metal-free zirconia dental implants
- Zygomatic dental implants.

What happens during the dental implant procedure?
Your implant dentist will surgically place the screw into the area of bone around the missing tooth. The gum is then secured over the implant for 3–6 months to allow for osseointegration (the fusing of the implant itself and the bone).
Attaching the post
Once the implant is fully fused with the bone, it is uncovered, and a post is attached. This second surgical procedure connects the replacement tooth/teeth to the post, which serves as the foundations to support the implant.
At this stage, the abutment is placed over the implant, and a 3D scan is taken which is used to custom-make the restorative prosthesis – crown, bridge or denture. These prostheses are custom to a specific shape, colour and fit that will blend with your natural teeth. You and your implant dentist will come up with the best shape and shade to suit you! Once customised and made, it is permanently attached to the implant post.
