Implants have been used since the 1970's, but are technologically superior to their early counterparts. Modern innovation means that implants are highly successful, and appear just like a natural tooth.
Dental implants can be used in many different combinations, to replace any number of teeth. Implants at iDental are managed between our dentists and our highly skilled specialist team that we regularly work with.
Before going ahead with an implant, we will discuss the process with you. Most of the time, we will refer you to our periodontist, who is a specialist at placing implants. They will ensure that there is adequate bone and that the gum is also in great condition. Once placed, the implant is left to heal and settle into position for around 3-4 months. We can then perform our magic. We use a digital scanner to take an "impression" of the implant. Some photos are usually also taken. We will have the implant crown made in our local porcelain laboratory. Your final appointment is where we place the implant crown, and your implant tooth looks and feels just like a regular tooth. Easy!
