Tooth Implants

Tooth implants are the perfect treatment for anybody who has lost one or multiple teeth. Beyond the aesthetic benefits of dental implants, they are also an important way of restoring the functionality of your mouth. Dr Olstein, and our experienced team, can provide an exceptional tooth implant service that will have you smiling from ear to ear.

What is a Tooth Implant?

Tooth implants looks exactly like a real tooth, and functions in just the same way. This means that after receiving your tooth implant, your bite will be robust and functional. You will be able to eat and drink as normal.

With full functionality returned to your mouth, you will also enjoy showing off your new smile, which is sure to boost your confidence and improve all aspects of your life.

What Happens During a Tooth Implant Procedure?

Tooth implant procedures typically occur under local or general anaesthetic. This allows the removal of any parts of the remaining tooth or root. If a patient is not comfortable with the use of an anaesthetic, the option of sleep dentistry is available. Sleep dentistry is an area of expertise for Dr Olstein.

Once the tooth has been completely removed, a titanium post is inserted, which is a small device akin to a screw, into the jawbone. The post will progressively fuse with the bone surrounding the particular area of the mouth.

After this first procedure, and once everything has healed, a porcelain bridge or crown will be inserted on top of the post. The final tooth crown looks exactly like all your other teeth, and nobody will ever know the difference.
