At Frankel Dental Care our dentists have a wealth of experience placing implants, creating the look, feel and function of real teeth and restoring a genuinely confident smile to our patients’ faces.
Restore your smile
If you have lost a tooth or a number of teeth, dental implants provide both a lifelike, and lifelong, replacement. No other form of dental restoration matches dental implants in terms of strength and longevity – so if you’re suffering with missing teeth, dental implants are well worth considering.
Frequently Asked Questions
A dental implant is a device that is inserted into the jawbone to mimic the root of a tooth. Made from biocompatible titanium, the implant integrates with your jawbone to create an extremely strong foundation onto which a custom-made crown can be permanently fixed. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or to fix dentures permanently in place, often with only four implants per arch.
Dental implant surgery is high-tech and minimally invasive. With the help of 3D scanning, an implant can be placed so accurately that it involves the least possible trauma and therefore a swift recovery time. Once the implant has been placed in the jaw, you will need to wait three-to-six months for the integration process to take place – this is where your natural bone tissue grows around the implant, securing it in place for life. Once integration has successfully completed, you’ll be able to return to your dentist for the final fitting of your new tooth.
Dental implants provide the same function, feel and look as natural teeth – so you’ll never need to compromise when it comes to eating, drinking and smiling with complete confidence. In addition, dental implants play an important role in maintaining the structure of your face: their firm position within the jawbone prevents teeth from shifting around and the jaw from shrinking – both of which cause ageing facial sagging. In short: with dental implants, you’ll stay looking youthful for longer.
