Why a dental implant?
If you have one or more missing or badly damaged teeth, a dental implant is the best long-term solution. It provides functional and cosmetic results and prevents bone loss.
A dental implant also helps prevent the deterioration of neighbouring teeth. It restores function during chewing and provides comfort in speaking. This solution is undoubtedly the best and offers a high success rate although not suitable in all cases.
A preliminary examination by Doctor Carbasse is to be carried out in order to detect any infection as the placement of an implant requires excellent oral health.
The placement of an implant is performed under local anaesthetic. The implant acts as an artificial root which will later be covered by a crown or bridge.
The completion of implant work will take between 8 to 12 weeks. The reason for this is there is a minimum healing period to allow for osseointegration between placing the implant and being able to reconstruct on top.
What is the lifespan of an implant?
With impeccable oral hygiene, the implant will likely last the patient's life. However, it is important to perform 6 monthly examinations to check the condition of the mouth and implant itself.
