What is Implant Dentistry?
Many people are missing at least one or two teeth and while in the past the only options for replacement would have been dental bridges or dentures, now there is a newer and longer lasting alternative which is to use dental implants. Dental implants closely replicate a natural tooth as the implant post is inserted into the jawbone, much like a real tooth root. This can be used to support a single tooth, while you can use several implants to support multiple teeth, including full arches or complete dentures.
Who Can Have Dental Implants?
Just about anyone in reasonable dental and general health and it doesn’t matter if you are a little older and implants are great for securing loose dentures. Dr Khaled can determine your suitability during initial consultations at Lakeside Dental Spa and through carrying out various diagnostic tests, including dental x-rays and a Cone Beam CT scan. All implant planning and surgery can be done in our comfortable dental practice as Dr Khaled has completed extensive additional training in this field.
