Dental Implants Williams Landing

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant replaces the root or roots of a tooth that has been removed. The implant is surgically placed in the jawbone (therefore it is not visible in the mouth) and a crown is then secured to the implant (which is the part that is visible in the mouth).

What is a Dental Implant made of?

The dental implant is made of Titanium, which is lightweight, strong and biocompatible.

How does the Dental Implant work?

Once a dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, it fuses itself to the remaining bone. Placing a dental implant into the space where a tooth has been removed stabilises the bone, preventing more bone loss in that area. By placing a dental implant you are maintaining the space of the original tooth, while maintaining your jawbone shape and density.

Am I a Candidate for a Dental Implant?

Anyone who has had a tooth removed may be a candidate for a dental implant, provided they are not immune-compromised i.e. undergoing chemotherapy/radiation treatment. Generally, if you are in good health you are likely to be a candidate for a dental implant.

Do I need x-rays before the procedure?

Yes, before any dental implant surgery is undertaken you will be required to undergo a series of dental x-rays and 3D/CT scans. Some study models will also be required to assess your bite. This is an essential part of knowing the exact position in the bone to place the implant.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

In accordance with the recent announcement of Level 4 restrictions associated with the Coronavirus outbreak, general dental practice being an essential service will remain open for business but under limited services. 

The measures have been put into place to minimise the risk to our patients, their families and our staff.

Unfortunately at this stage, all routine examinations and treatment will need to be deferred. To meet regulations, we are able to continue to provide care for those who require emergency or urgent treatment. Every patient who has any dental concerns will be triaged to see if they meet the criteria as set out by the Dental Practice Board for treatment. Although we would love to be able to address all patients, we hope you understand that due strict guidelines this may not be possible at this present moment. 

We are screening all patients for symptoms who attend our clinic along with our routine high standard infection-control protocols. We ask that all of our patients assist us in keeping Williams Landing Dental Clinic Coronovirus-free by not attending the clinic if you are suffering any symptoms which may be associated with the Coronavirus or if you are in self isolation due to risk of contact with the virus.

We appreciate that this is a stressful time for everyone and thank you for your patience. We look forward to looking after your smiles again when things return to normal.

Stay safe.   When you arrive at the clinic please stay in your car and call the clinic.
