Implants are one way of replacing missing teeth and are the most long lasting tooth replacement treatment available. Not only do they fill in gaps from missing teeth, but they can also help support fixed bridges and dentures.
One lovely patient at Passage House, who recently had dental implants commented on how they had changed her life. She felt too young to wear dentures and couldn't get used to the feeling of dentures in her mouth.
are dental implants?
They come in two parts. The implant, which is placed in the jaw bone and acts like the root of a tooth and the replacement crown part of the tooth, which is fixed onto the implant.
Which Dentist will I have?
Rest assured you are in good hands. Your consultation will be with Dr Brad Hall, and your treatment will always be with Dr Hall. This is because Dr Hall has the most experience, knowledge and passion for this kind of treatment and is changing lives (as quoted by one patient!) of Passage House patients every week through dental implants.
Dr Hall, has to date completed many post graduate surgical and restorative courses in the field of dental implants and such is his interest he is currently completing an MSc in Dental Implantology at the University of Bristol.
Dental Implant treatment has two stages, all of which are carried out at Passage House Dental Care.
- Local anaesthetic is used to numb the area before precise space is made within your bone where the implant is to be placed.
- The implant is screwed in to place within this space and the gum is stitched so that it heals around the implant.
- Under the gum, the bone then grows round the implant to hold it firm. This can take several weeks and needs good oral care.
- Dr Hall will assess the status of the first stage to ensure healing and bone growth is taking place as it should.
- When the first stage has 'embedded' then the replacement tooth (crown part of the tooth) is then attached to the implant. This tooth is matched to the current shade of your teeth and will look and function as if it is your natural tooth.
