Dental implants are placed by surgically implanting titanium anchors into the jawbone. These anchors function like natural tooth roots. After sufficient time has passed to allow the anchors to bond and fuse with the surrounding bone and gum tissue, studs are secured to the anchors. Natural-looking crowns can then be attached to the studs. Additional surgical procedures such as 3D scans and bone grafting procedures may be required.

Dentures, especially on the lower jaw, are prone to slipping and sliding, which can make chewing and speaking a difficult and potentially embarrassing chore. Because they utilise titanium anchors that are fused with the jawbone (replicating the natural root structure of a tooth), dental implants are more secure and often more comfortable than removable dentures while looking and feeling like real teeth.

In many cases, patients desiring dental implants must first visit an oral surgeon to have the titanium anchors inserted. At Kennet River Dental Practice we have our own team of surgery and implant placement professionals. From start to finish, we can provide the full range of treatment for your new dental implants in our practice.
