Dental implants are becoming increasingly popular and offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth. A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural tooth root fixed into the jaw bone. They are commonly metal screw- or cylinder shaped. The commonest material in use now is Titanium.

Each implant is placed into a socket carefully made or drilled at the expected location of the intended replacement tooth. In appropriate cases, implant can be placed at the same time as the removal of the tooth, into the root socket all on the same day.

We aim at achieving strong contact between the implant surface and patients bone on placement to speed up the process of microscopic fusion between the implant and the bone, a phenomenon called Osseo-integration.

Generally speaking dental implants like tooth have the parts: the screw inside the bone, the abutment or neck which fixes on the screw inside the bone and on which the replacement crown will be placed and the finished crown itself.

Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry over the past few years. They are one of the most thoroughly researched, precision engineered, advanced technological treatment options available in dentistry. They can be a viable alternative or adjunct to wearing dentures.

Dental implants can transform your mouth, secure your denture and give you a confident smile and satisfactory chewing. They are permanent and provide close alternative to their natural teeth.

At the Fountain Dental & Implant we have a highly trained and experienced dentist that treats our implant cases. The process begins with an assessment by your dentist to determine whether implants are the best option for you, putting into consideration your medical and social history and the condition of your mouth.

The operation is normally done while you are aware using local anaesthetics. The implant screws are methodologically and carefully inserted into your jaw bone and buried for few months (3-4 months) to allow it to fuss properly to the bone.

After this initial healing period, it is exposed and an appropriate neck or abutment connected to it and a restoration/crown placed over it, depending on the purpose of the implant. The whole treatment may last for up to 4-6 months, but the wait is always worth it.
