AT CITY QUAY DENTAL CLINIC & IMPLANT CENTRE, we offer an initial implant consultation for all patients who are interested in dental implants. The consultation involves taking some x-rays and an intraoral examination. The aim of this consultation is to clarify if you are suitable for dental implants, and what the procedure may entail for your specific case. During the consultation an estimated cost of treatment is provided along with a detailed treatment plan. Any further appointments there after will however incur surgery fees.
Nature has created the most effective building blocks and any model based on nature’s solutions aims to deliver quality.
A dental implant is a small part made of titanium or titanium zirconium which is placed in the jaw bone in place of the missing natural tooth root. The implant can be surgically inserted under local anesthetic on an outpatient basis. Titanium is generally well-tolerated by the human body and bone has been shown to bond well to titanium.
Once healed, the artificial root acts as a base for fixing individual crowns and multi-tooth bridges. The implant can also be used as an anchor for entire dental prostheses.
In order to take over the function of the tooth root, the dental implant is inserted in the jaw bone by a short operation under local anaesthetic as an outpatient procedure. It knits painlessly with the bone, thus forming a solid basis for the long-term and stable fixation of the denture.
Not everyone is suitable for implants, certain things like smoking, and medical history can affect the success rate for implants. For best advice please contact us for a consultation appointment.
