Frequently asked questions
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, acting as an artificial tooth root below the gums. The ‘root’ is made from bio-compatible titanium.
This provides a solid foundation for the attachment of the replacement tooth, and the result is a permanent restoration that seamlessly blends in with your smile and acts like a natural tooth.
How successful is dental implant surgery?
Dental implant surgery generally has a success rate of 95 to 99 per cent. The success of your dental implant relies on the level of care following the procedure. We will instruct you on how to take good care of the tooth with a daily oral hygiene routine to ensure you get the best result.
Am I suitable for dental implant surgery?
Our qualified dentists can determine whether dental implants are right for you with a comprehensive consultation.
Your teeth will be thoroughly assessed using x-ray scans or CBCT scans. This will allow us to evaluate the condition of your teeth and jaw to decide if enough bone density is present to hold the implant in place.
Is dental implant surgery painful?
All dental procedures can cause some discomfort to the patient. This varies greatly depending on the procedure and severity of the case.
Here at The Point Dental, we ensure that you are as comfortable and relaxed as possible before, during and after your treatment. We offer the option of sedation for patients undertaking lengthy procedures or who may become anxious.
We also offer in house general anaesthesia, performed by our specialist anaesthetic team, so you can be put to sleep completely without the need to go to the hospital.
Will I have missing teeth during the healing period?
Dental implants involve several visits, so we will always provide an appropriate temporary tooth in any visible area of your smile.
