Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
At Dental Lounge we love dental implants because they let us build something new which means we don’t have to rely on old work or teeth with poor foundations.
It is very common for people to have more than one tooth missing or even a span of teeth missing. It is no longer necessary to fill these gaps with dentures or to cut down neighbouring teeth for bridges. Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth or an entire arch of teeth
The number of implants necessary depends on the number of missing teeth and the quality of your bone. Rest assured that your individual case will be assessed with the latest implant technology and techniques in mind.
On occasion in order to place an implant in the upper jaw we may need to generate bone using the air filled spaces known as the sinus. This involves raising the floor of the sinus to create more bony support for the implant. Often this can be done at the same time the implant is placed otherwise there is a four-six month waiting period. Finance available
