Dental Implants Christchurch

Safely and successfully replace your lost tooth.

When you have lost a tooth, it leads to multiple practical problems in your daily life. An effective option to tackle this is using a dental implant to safely and successfully replace your lost tooth. Dental implants are also effective for more than one tooth. Dental implants are safe, durable and last a long time.

The procedure to get a dental implant involves two steps. In the first step, a replacement root is fitted and this is then left to fuse with your jaw bone for a few weeks. The replacement root is made up of titanium or a titanium alloy. In the second step, a dental crown is fitted to the implant. They are suitable for both fronts as well as back teeth. Dental implants are also used to hold dentures in place.

When you visit our dental surgery with a missing tooth, your dentist will examine you and advise whether dental implants are a viable option for you. The entire treatment plan lasts many weeks to allow for appropriate adaptation of the implants and will require multiple trips to your dentist.

What is Dental Implants Christchurch?

Dental implants are used to replace one or more damaged or missing teeth, without having to anchor to your other teeth. They’re a more permanent and natural solution than bridges or dentures. Dental implants can also be used to support dentures in place. They can replace missing front or back teeth.

During dental implant surgery the missing tooth root is surgically replaced with a small post or frame in your jaw bone, which creates a stable base for a replacement tooth, such as a crown, to be mounted on to.

Dental implants offer many benefits including durability and function. Because the implant prosthetic post or frame is secured firmly into bone, they provide a strong and durable foundation that acts just like the natural root of a tooth. This helps to maintain your bone structure within your jaw and achieve both a more natural look and better function for your tooth.

Is Dental Implants Christchurch for me?

Do you have one or more missing teeth? Do you want to improve your appearance? Are you after a more permanent and natural solution to missing teeth that will improve your ability to speak and chew like normal?

Providing your gums are healthy and you have sufficient bone to support the prosthetic implant, then dental implants are an excellent solution for missing teeth.

Here are some of the many advantages our patients have discovered with dental implants:

  • Improved appearance – they look and feel the most like your natural teeth and can even help prevent bone shrinkage in your jaw, delaying one of the signs of aging
  • Better function – dental implants can help improve speech and make eating and chewing easier
  • Improved confidence – they give you back your smile and function, which can help boost your self-esteem
  • So convenient – no more need to feel embarrassed taking out dentures and you can throw away the messy adhesive needed to keep dentures in place!
  • Long-lasting – dental implants are very durable and with good care can last many years
  • Better oral health – they can help prevent the dental problems that can occur from missing teeth.
