Dental Implants in Fonthill
They are used as a replacement for a missing tooth or teeth. If you need all of your teeth replaced, this is possible thanks to dental implants. You can book a consultation with our dentists and get the best evaluation of your needs. Our practice offers you a wide array of possibilities when it comes to dental implants.
How does this work?
They are made out of titanium generally and they have an internal screw that will hold the implant. There will be a local anesthetic involved just so you can be comfortable during this procedure. A small hole in your jaw will be drilled and then the implant will be placed into that hole. If you require more procedures, your abutment will be inserted later. Once that has been attached we can attach the replacement teeth but if you need the time to heal, it will be inserted at another appointment.
Will it hurt?
You will have a local anesthetic for the procedure and you will not feel any pain but you might feel discomfort later – you can take over the counter painkillers for this.
How should you care for your new implants?
You should clean them just like your real teeth – brush, floss, use mouthwash. You should also see a hygienist once in a while just so that you can be sure that they are cleaned properly.
Are any alternatives possible?
You could get dentures which are removable or you can even fit a bridge in some cases. You should book an appointment just so that you can see what option will work best for you.
How much will it cost?
There is no set amount for this – visit Peace Park Dental for an appointment and a pricing estimate.
