What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are Titanium posts with specially activated surfaces. They are placed (implanted) in your jawbone to function in a similar way to a natural tooth root. Your bone grows onto the implants in a process called OSSEOINTEGRATION. After a few months, the implants will form a permanent part of your body.
Are Implants Safe & How long do they last?
Present day implants are based on scientific evidence and have shown a success rate of more than 90%. We believe that implants are one of the most predictable forms of dental treatment and in most cases a life-long solution.
Might I be Suitable?
At your initial Consultation with Dr Omran Abbas, X-rays will be needed to see if you have sufficient quality and quantity of bone. Diseases such as uncontrolled diabetes or leukaemia can affect the bone growing onto the implant and will need careful assessment. In general, most people are suitable candidates.
