Implants at Dentist on The Green

Dental Implants have revolutionised restorative dentistry.They are the most thoroughly researched, precision engineered, advanced technological treatment option available. Dental implants offer permanent replacement to loose and missing teeth and can be a viable alternative to wearing dentures.

From the replacement of a single tooth, to the complete reconstruction of an entire set of teeth, dental implants can transform your mouth, rebuilding the confidence behind a beautiful, functional and secure smile.

Dental implants can bring back the smile to people who have lost teeth through decay, accidents, gum disease or excessive wear and tear. They are a permanent and fixed solution for missing teeth, providing patients with the nearest possible alternative to their natural dentition. Dental implants have a very high success rate (92% of implants still function well after 10 years), and they look and feel just like natural teeth.

A dental implant is a metal screw, which is fitted in the mouth at the sight of the missing tooth before being covered with a crown. Dental implants can be used to replace either single teeth or all of your teeth in both the upper and lower jaw.

Implants can also be used as a solution to ill-fitting dentures or to help secure crowns and bridges. The process begins with an assessment by your dentist to determine whether implants are the best form of treatment. It might be that other approaches are recommended, such as a crown, a bridge or dentures.Implants can also be placed after long-term tooth loss with a sinus lift.

Implants placed at Dentist on The Green are done by Dr Michail Vavalekas. They will carefully insert your implants before placing a protective cover over them. The implant establishes itself over a period of three to six months as the bone grows around the screw and holds it firmly in place. A special crown for implants is then placed over the implant to replace the original natural tooth.

Although implant dentistry takes time, the results are well worth it, providing you with a beautiful smile and complete confidence when biting, chewing and laughing.
