What Is A Dental Tooth Implant..?
We assess the state of your gum where the tooth was lost. If you lost the tooth very recently in a traumatic event and you still have it, it’s possible we could put it back in for you.
If the gap is older or if you’ve previously had dentures, we sometimes need to prepare the site by doing a bone graft or sinus lift, which will build up the jawbone where the implant will go. As soon as you are ready, we make an appointment to place the implant.
The dental implant is placed in your mouth and left for about three to six months. During this time new bone grows around the implant, securing it in a process called osseointegration.
A connecting piece called an abutment is added to the implant and a false tooth made to exactly fit and match your other teeth is placed on top. The quality of these restorations is such that you can easily forget which tooth is the false one!
Appledore can then subsequently place single crowns, bridgework, or attachments to retain dentures on top of your implants.
- This enables Appledore to restore the form, function and aesthetics of your mouth
- Enabling you to eat and smile with confidence.
“What A Fantastic Job Appledore Did”
The placement of implants helps to prevent the loss of your jawbone which naturally occurs with loss of teeth. As such it helps maintain the strength and shape of your jaws, and contributes to maintaining a youthful appearance.
Implants can be placed in almost anyone over 16. They are not normally used in children, as their bones are not fully grown.

Appledore recommend Straumann implants as they are top quality.
Dr Teresa has been to the manufacturing facilities of a number of implant companies, they are all quite high tech, but the Straumann facility is decidedly ‘space age’. All the implants are checked under the microscope and then go through an amazing finishing process that you can watch here
