Dental implants are the ideal replacement for a tooth root. The most commonly used material is titanium, which was first presented in the medical world as a reliable solution for missing teeth in 1982, after a 10 year follow up research with a 90%+ success rate. This process is called osseointegration and usually takes 6-12 weeks.

Dental implants resemble the shape of the root and have an internal screw that connects the implant in the bone to the oral cavity.

They can be used to replace anything from a single tooth to a full arch (the top or bottom of all teeth. The number position of implants (foundations) will depend on bone quality, quantity and most importantly what type of outcome are we aiming for from the treatment. Sometimes we use dental implants for aesthetic reasons, function or both and that will influence decisions made around treatment.

Our Services

Single tooth replacement

The implant is placed on the site where the tooth was lost. Implant + Abutment (connector) + Crown on top.

There are three parts to an implant, the fixture, a small titanium screw that is inserted into the jawbone, below the gum line, that acts as an artificial tooth root anchoring your new tooth replacement; the middle part is called the abutment, which is the part that connects the implant titanium screw to the new crown; the crown being your new artificial tooth. An implant is the ideal solution if you’ve lost or are losing one or more of your natural teeth.

Multiple teeth replacement

Usually 2 implants supporting 3 units bridge (crowns)

A multiple teeth implant bridge is a fixed dental solution designed to replace multiple missing or decaying teeth.

A multiple teeth implant bridge or prosthesis is made up of three parts, the implant fixtures, the small titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone, below the gum line, that acts as an artificial tooth root anchoring your new implant supported bridge in place; the middle connections are called the abutments, which is the part that connects the implanted titanium screws to the new bridge; the bridge being your new artificial teeth. An implant bridge is the ideal solution if you’ve lost or are losing two or more of your natural teeth.

The implant bridge is designed to mimic the natural contours, shape and form of the natural teeth. The implant bridge is fixed meaning it cannot be removed from your mouth, as opposed to traditional partial dentures which are removable.

The fixed implant bridge is a preferred long-term treatment option over other alternatives like traditional removable dentures or tooth-supported bridges to replace your missing teeth. We aim to deliver high quality, natural tooth aesthetics to our MHT Dentistry patients. The implant solution offers the most natural looking, feeling and functioning result.

Full arches

These are more complex cases and are used to improve the function of a non-stable lower denture. They vary from 2-6 implants per arch and can hold a fixed, fixed removal or removable option.

A full arch fixed implant bridge is a fixed dental solution designed to replace the upper and or lower row of missing or decaying teeth. This full arch fixed implant bridge is made up of a full set of teeth which are fixed to your upper and or lower jaw via dental implants. A full arch fixed implant bridge mimics the contours, shape and form of natural teeth. This is a fixed implant treatment, as opposed to a removable treatment such as a removable denture or overdenture, which means that you are not able to remove the prosthesis from your mouth once fitted.

A full arch fixed implant bridge will replace your missing teeth as well as any missing gum tissue, giving you a beautiful and natural looking smile. This full arch fixed implant bridge option offers a natural appearance whereby the teeth appear to “emerge” from the gums. There is no palatal coverage for an upper bridge, meaning it doesn’t cover the roof of your mouth. This is beneficial for patients who cannot tolerate wearing a full denture due to a gag reflex.
