About dental implants
Dental implants are made from titanium and shaped like small screws; the aim of an implant is to replace the root section of the lost tooth. Implants are placed inside sockets in the jaw bone and then left to heal. As titanium is a biocompatible material, it integrates into the bone tissue and this allows the implant to offer the same standard of stability as a natural root.
Dental implants are the most versatile option for replacing missing teeth because they fit with different restorations and this means that they are suitable for patients with one or multiple missing teeth.
How does an implant work?
Implants are placed inside pre-drilled holes in the jaw bone and they are then left to undergo the process of osseointegration; once this is complete, the implant will have become part of the actual bone tissue and it can be attached to a new restoration to produce a strong, healthy and natural looking tooth. Implants are the closest match to a natural tooth and they also last a lot longer than bridges and dentures. As the implant takes on the role of a new root, the restoration is completely stable and this allows you to do everything you would be able to do with a natural tooth.
Am I a suitable match for treatment?
Dental implants are a suitable match for most patients; however, if you smoke heavily or you suffer from a condition, which affects bone density, there may be other options, which are better suited. If you lack bone density in the jaw bone, we may recommend bone grafting prior to treatment; this is because the implant may fail if the bone tissue is not dense enough.

What are dental implants and how could treatment benefit me?
Dental implants are the newest treatment on the market for missing teeth. This versatile treatment is suitable for patients of all ages with different needs and it can be used to replace any number of teeth, from a single tooth to a full arch of lost teeth. Implants are a modern, innovative and long-term term solution to dental bridges and dentures.
Implants are designed to replace the tooth root and they lie beneath the gums in the jaw bone tissue. As they are made from titanium, which is biocompatible, they are able to integrate into the bone and this provides optimum stability for the rest of the tooth, which is replaced by a new restoration. Implants are versatile because they are compatible with crowns, dentures and dental bridges.
Implants provide patients with a wide range of dental needs with a host of benefits. Implants are the nearest thing to a natural tooth and they enable you to do everything you would normally do if you had a full set of functioning natural teeth. As implants are made from titanium, they are able to integrate into the bone without causing any harm to the surrounding gum tissue or neighbouring roots. With implants, your smile is secure for years to come and the aesthetics are amazing; implants can also help to reduce bone loss and they are very easy to look after.

What are dental implants and how could they benefit me?
Dental implants are prostheses, which are used to replace the root section of a missing tooth. Implants are small posts, which are inserted into small openings in the jaw bone to take on the role of a tooth root; they are made from titanium and they are able to integrate into the bone tissue in the jaw.
Once integration has taken place, a new restoration is attached to the implant in order to replace the crown section of the tooth. One of the best aspects of implant treatment is versatility, as the implants are compatible with dentures, dental bridges and crowns, making them a suitable option for patients of all ages with any number of lost teeth.
How does implant treatment work?
Implant treatment involves two important stages. During the first stage of treatment, the implant is placed, which involves drilling a hole into the bone tissue and securing the implant in the socket. To do this, a small incision is made in the gum and a skin flap is lifted; once the implant is in place, the incision is closed. The process of osseointegration, which involves the implant blending into the bone tissue, takes around 3-8 months.
The second stage of treatment involves the placement of the new restoration and takes place several months after the first session. Once the new restoration is in place, our Monkstown patients can enjoy beautiful smiles and amazing levels of tooth function.
Implants offer patients myriad benefits, from amazing aesthetics, to outstanding standards of functionality. They are also built to last a lifetime, they are easy to maintain and they help to reduce the risk of bone loss.
The adult teeth are designed to last a lifetime and if you lose a tooth prematurely, this can be distressing. The teeth have a number of important roles within the body and it is always beneficial to replace them; we offer the latest tooth replacement treatments, including the incredibly innovative, dental implants.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small, titanium posts, which are inserted into pre-drilled openings in the jaw bone; the aim of the treatment is to restore function to the mouth and create a beautiful and natural looking smile. The role of the implant is similar to that of the tooth root; once it has integrated into the actual bone tissue, it is fitted to a new restoration and the implant supports the crown, bridge or denture in the same way as a natural tooth root.
Who can benefit from dental implants?
One of the best things about dental implants is that they are suitable for a wide range of patients. As they can be attached to different restorations, this makes them a viable option for patients with one, several or an entire arch of missing teeth.
Implants are suitable for most patients, but occasionally, there may be better options; if you have very weak bone tissue or you are a heavy smoker, for example, other treatments may be recommended.
Implant treatment takes place in two key stages after the consultation phase; the first stage is to fit the implant, which involves opening up the gum tissue and drilling a hole in the jaw bone. The implant is fitted into the socket, the gum flap is closed and then left to heal; this procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic to prevent any pain. The second stage takes place once the implant has settled fully and involves attaching the restoration; once this is in place, the smile will look completely natural and the tooth will function in the same way as your other teeth.

Adult teeth are designed to last a lifetime, but sometimes, the teeth are lost prematurely through injury, decay or as a result of illness. If you lose a tooth or a number of teeth, this affects the aesthetic of your smile, as well as your ability to carry out everyday functions, such as chewing and biting, and it is advisable to replace missing teeth. There are various options for replacing lost teeth, including dental bridges, dentures and dental implants.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a very effective, long-term treatment for missing teeth. Dental implants are made from titanium and they are designed to sit in the jawbone to replace the root of the missing tooth. As the implants are made from titanium, they are able to integrate into the bone tissue in a process known as osseointegration.
One of the major benefits of dental implants is that they are able to anchor a wide range of restorations, which means that they can replace any number of lost teeth.
The treatment process
Dental implant treatment takes several months, as it takes time for the implants to integrate into the bone. During the first stage of treatment, the implants will be placed into the pre-drilled sockets in the jawbone. The implants are then left to settle and the restoration is attached several months later when the implant has integrated fully. Before treatment begins, your dentist will carry out tests and X-rays to check that you are a suitable candidate for treatment. In some cases, where there is a shortage of bone tissue in the jaw, it may be necessary to build up the tissue through bone grafting.
What are the benefits?
Dental implants are very impressive, in terms of function and aesthetics; the teeth look natural and the restorations are anchored very firmly, which improves function. Implants also last for many years and they help to reduce bone loss. If you would like to find out more about dental implants contact the team at Dublin18 Dental Care near Monkstown.
If you lose a tooth or a number of teeth it is always beneficial to replace them. Missing teeth affect the function of the mouth, as well as the look of the smile and gaps can also cause the remaining teeth to shift out of position. If you have a single missing tooth or a number of missing teeth there are options available to you, including:
A dental bridge is commonly used to replace a single missing tooth or a small number of missing teeth. A dental bridge is made from a false tooth, which is known as a pontic, and crowns, which hold the false tooth in position. There are three types of dental bridge: a traditional fixed bridge, a cantilever bridge and a Maryland bridge; the most common bridge is the traditional fixed bridge. Bridges can be made from different materials and ceramic bridges are very popular because they match the colour of the teeth.
Dental implants are a really impressive long-term option for patients with missing teeth; they last for many years and they produce amazing aesthetics, as well as first class function. Dental implants are titanium devices, which resemble screws, which are placed into sockets in the jaw bone to replace the tooth root; they can then be attached to a crown, dental bridge or denture, once they have fully integrated into the jaw bone.
Dentures are sets of false teeth, which can be used to replace an entire arch of missing teeth (a full or complete denture) or a smaller number of missing teeth (a partial denture). Modern dentures are very lifelike and they are much more comfortable and functional than they used to be. We recommend regular appointments for patients with dentures to check the fit of the denture; ill-fitting dentures affect the function of your mouth and they can also cause irritation and soreness.
The options available to you may depend on the number of teeth you are missing, the location of the missing teeth, your preferences and your budget. Our friendly dentists at Dublin18 Dental Care near Donnybrook will be happy to discuss the different treatments with you and explain how they work and which one would be best for you.

Dublin18 Dental Care provides a number of treatments for missing teeth, including dental implants. Dental implants are a long-term solution for missing teeth and they can be used to replace a single missing tooth, a number of missing teeth or an entire arch.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium screws, which are designed to replace the root of the missing tooth. The implants are placed into pre-drilled sockets in the jaw bone and they integrate into the bone over a period of time. Once the implant has settled fully, it can be attached to a new crown, dental bridge or denture and the full function of the mouth will be restored.
The implant procedure
The implant procedure involves two key stages; firstly, the implant is placed and then left to heal and then after a period of time (usually 3-6 months), the new restoration is attached. The placement process involves making an incision in the gum and drilling into the bone to create a socket for the implant; this is done under local anaesthetic to prevent any pain. Once the implant is in place, the incision is closed and the implant is left to integrate into the jaw bone.
Why is it important to replace missing teeth?
There are numerous benefits of replacing missing teeth. Missing teeth affect your ability to eat food properly and speak clearly and they also have a negative impact on the aesthetic of your smile. Empty tooth sockets also tend to attract bacteria, which can increase the risk of gum disease and decay. Losing teeth also affects the overall look of your face, as the teeth have an important role in providing support for your cheeks and lips; if you have a number of missing teeth this can cause your cheeks to appear sunken.

Tooth loss is an issue for many adults, but we are happy to say that we have an effective solution: dental implants.
Replacing missing teeth is always advisable because the teeth have a number of important roles, such as chewing and breaking down food, forming sounds and letters, providing support for the cheeks and ensuring you have a healthy, beautiful smile. Without teeth you may find it difficult to eat properly, speak clearly and feel confident when you smile, but dental implants can help. Implants are a revolutionary dental treatment which will make you feel and look like you’ve still got all your natural teeth.
What are dental implants?
They are small screw-like devices which are fixed into pre-drilled sockets in the jaw bone in order to mimic the root portion of a missing tooth. Titanium is used to create implants because the material is able to integrate with the bone tissue without causing any problems with the neighbouring teeth or the gums. Once the implant has healed and joined with the bone tissue, a restoration can be attached and the tooth will look like a natural tooth.
Dental implant treatment is suitable for cases where patients have a single missing tooth or a number of missing teeth. They can be attached to dental crowns, a dental bridge or a denture.
What are the advantages?
The treatment offers the best of both worlds in terms of function and smile aesthetics. The teeth will look and function just like natural teeth, implants last for many years and they also help to reduce bone loss. This process is beneficial for patients of all ages and can be used to replace a single tooth or a number of teeth.
