Dental Implants

Losing a tooth to trauma, decay or old fashioned wear-and-tear can be an uncomfortable prospect.

Dental Implants offer patients with missing teeth a natural-looking way of restoring function to their mouths and improving their smiles. Unlike dentures or bridges, tooth implants last a lifetime. And more importantly, they look, feel and act just like the original tooth.

Is the process painful?

Not at all!

Dental Care Group takes every possible measure to ensure your dental implant procedure is pain-free and without complications. We use local anaesthetics to minimise discomfort during the procedure.

Some patients report mild soreness in the immediate aftermath of their surgery. This can be easily relieved with over-the-counter pain medication.

How long will my implants last?

Unlike other tooth replacement procedures such as dentures, your dental implants only need the same level of care as your natural teeth – that means brushing, flossing, using mouthwash and regular check-ups with your dentist.

With a proper dental hygiene routine, your dental implants can last your entire lifetime without replacement or damage.

Is every dental implant successful?

While it’s difficult to guarantee that every dental implant surgery will be complication-free, success rates for implants can be close to 100% given optimal conditions.

Some factors which can lower the success rate include:
Generally speaking however, dental implants have a high success rate.
