The implant is a small device, made out of titanium metal which acts like a tooth root. Your dentist will fix the implant to the jaw bone where it will fuse and remain in place.
The implant then creates a strong, permanent support for the replacement tooth. This tooth is shaped and coloured to match perfectly with your remaining teeth. It will be fitted as and when the implant is securely in place.
Implants are undertaken under a local anesthetic, as with an extraction. When properly looked after, we expect them to last a lifetime. Maintaining them as you do your other teeth is important and your dentist will advise you on any specific requirements.
If you are considering the option of having dental implants fitted, one of our implant dentists in Derby will be more than happy to advise you. Feel free to contact us on 01283 735777.Back to treatments
