Implant
Had an implant put in today. Painless. Dr. Smaily is a hoot, continually chatting to put me at ease. I could easily fall asleep in that chair while he worked on my teeth!

  DENTAL IMPLANTS

If you have missing teeth, it can greatly affect your self confidence in your appearance.

The bone at the missing tooth site and surrounding it will begin to shrink over time. This bone loss can cause loss of other teeth, your jaw line to recede, change in your facial profile as well as difficulty speaking and eating.

Three single implantsDental implants are the most durable way or replacing missing teeth as they act as an artificial tooth root. Once the implant is placed and has had time to heal, a crown is secured to the implant. This new tooth replicates the natural function and appearance of natural teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace single missing teeth, several missing teeth, as well as used to secure dentures and bridges.


Implant supported dentures and bridges.

Historically, dentures were used to replace missing teeth but with limited results. Implant supported bridgeTraditional dentures do nothing to preserve natural bone levels. Over time, as bone resorption occurs, patients will experience a poor fit, which will require multiple fittings. Patients also suffer from gum irritation, food trapping and embarrassment due to their dentures becoming loose or falling out. Many patients can no longer enjoy eating certain foods, as they are unable to bite or chew it with their dentures.

Implant supported dentures or bridges provide patients with many benefits. The implants help to preserve bone levels as well as the integrity of your facial structure. Dentures and bridges are “anchored” to the implants, which prevents them from moving or slipping and allows patients to bite and chew food with confidence.
