At Smartoral we also perform minor oral surgery including removal of wisdom teeth and gingival laser treatments.
We understand the anxiety some patients link to these procedures and that is why we also offer treatment under conscious sedation.
What are implants?
Implants have been around for many years and becoming more and more common as they are a successful method for replacing missing teeth. Implants allow a patient to look natural and function normally even though it is artificial teeth.
The implant is made up of titanium and is inserted into the bone of the jaw. Over time the jawbone integrates with the implant surface, firmly anchoring it. Under normal conditions, the healing process can take as little as 6-12 weeks. After this time the tooth replacement in the form of a single crown, bridge, or denture is secured to the implant. With implant treatment, the dental implant replaces the lost tooth root and provides a stable foundation for the replacement tooth, thus eliminating the need to grind down healthy neighbouring teeth
