Implant Dentistry

Implant dentistry is a specialised field focused on replacing missing teeth with artificial tooth roots. These providing a strong foundation for prosthetic teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

What do the treatments involve?

Implant treatments involve the surgical placement of titanium screws into the jawbone, to serve as artificial tooth roots. After a healing period, prosthetic teeth such as crowns, bridges, or dentures are securely attached to the implants, restoring  functionality, aesthetics and your smile.

PRGF in dentistry is a technique that uses the patient’s own blood to extract and concentrate growth factors. These growth factors, found in platelets, promote tissue regeneration and healing. By applying the concentrated platelet-rich plasma to the treatment site, PRGF enhances healing, especially for dental implants, gum surgeries, and oral diseases. It is a safe and minimally invasive procedure, improving treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction.

“I recently transferred to this practice and I’m very pleased I did”

I recently transferred to this practice and I’m very pleased I did. My dentist Vinny carefully outlined all of my options and answered all of my questions so that I felt confident about opting for an implant. I had treatment at the Cardiff and Llanthewy Rd clinics and the reception and dental staff in both are friendly and courteous. I thoroughly recommend this practice!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Dental Implant?

A Dental Implant is a small titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. It serves as a stable foundation for attaching prosthetic teeth, offering a durable and natural-looking solution.

What are the benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental Implants offer numerous advantages, including improved speech, enhanced chewing ability, preservation of facial structure, and a natural-looking smile. They can also help secure full or partial dentures, providing a more comfortable and secure tooth replacement solution.

Are Dental Implants suitable for everyone?

While Dental Implants are a highly effective tooth replacement option for the majority of people, not everyone may be a suitable candidate. Factors such as overall oral health, bone density, and medical history need to be assessed to determine the feasibility of a Dental Implant treatment. Where bone is inadequate, you may need augmentation of the site either during or prior to implant placement. Your Implantologist will evaluate your case and discuss viable solutions..

Is Dental Implant surgery painful?

Dental Implant surgery is typically performed under local anaesthesia, ensuring that the area being treated is completely numb. Patients may experience minor discomfort during the recovery period, which can be managed with paracetamol and ibuprofen analgesic medication in the majority of cases, along with good post-operative care. All of our implant patients are provided with the contact details of the treating dentist and implant co-ordinator, providing advice and care if needed, outside normal working hours.

How long do Dental Implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, Dental Implants can  last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene practices, and avoiding habits like smoking can contribute to the long-term success of Dental Implants. Changes in your health or medication may affect an implants prognosis. If you have any queries, please contact us and we will happily arrange a consultation.

How long does the Dental Implant procedure take?

The duration of the Dental Implant procedure varies depending on numerous factors, such as the number of implants placed, whether bone build up or soft tissue modification is needed, and the patient’s overall oral health. In general, the process involves multiple stages and can take several months to complete. You will be advised on time scale following completion of the planning stage.
