How does implant surgery work?

The process of implant surgery takes 3 to 4 months but can vary from patient to patient. By speaking to Domingos Mamede as soon as possible you can begin your journey to a beautiful smile very soon.

The procedure itself is an invasive procedure which will be carried out under local anaesthetic to ensure that it is as comfortable for you as possible, however if you are of a nervous disposition or suffer from dental anxiety then you may wish to speak to Domingos Mamede about sedation for the procedure, as he is trained in IV sedation for nervous patients. Your dental health is our priority and you can rest assured that we have your best interests at heart throughout the process.

Dental implant surgery consists of drilling a small hole into the bone socket of your missing tooth, so that a small titanium screw can be securely placed into your jawbone. The titanium of the implant initiates a process known as osseointegration which will cause osteoblasts to form around the dental implant, embedding it permanently into your jawbone.

This process can take approximately 12 weeks and you can visit us in between to make sure that it is coming along successfully. It is a natural healing process therefore it may not be suitable for those who suffer from diabetes or other underlying health issues, however this will be discussed at your initial appointment. Once the implant has been successfully embedded into your mouth then you will visit our dentist who will make a small incision to expose the head of the titanium screw. Then the dentist will attach an abutment to the implant on which your crown will sit securely and permanently, restoring your smile and improving your overall oral health for life. You may need one implant to address a missing tooth, or multiple implants for multiple missing teeth in different places or if you are looking to replace the full set of teeth you may wish to find out about an implant supported bridge or dentures, and Domingos Mamede will tailor your treatment plan accordingly.
