No More Loose Dentures, Enjoy The Stability of Dental Implants



Are dental implants safe and how long do they last?

Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry when performed by a trained and experienced implant dentist. Properly maintained implants may last for many years; however, as with any dental appliance, repairs may be needed.

Does the dental implant procedure hurt?

A small procedure will be necessary. It’s usually possible to place the implants in the dentist’s rooms. In some cases a general anaesthetic is preferable, and this will require a visit to a medical clinic or hospital. Some patients do experience one or two days of discomfort after the procedure, which is usually related to the stitches.

Am I the right candidate for dental implants?

X-rays, and sometimes CT scans, will be needed to see if you have sufficient quality and quantity of bone. Conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes, HIV or leukemia can affect the bone growing onto the implant and will need careful assessment. In general, most people, providing they are inadequate good health, are suitable candidates for implants.

How much does dental implant cost?

An accurate cost estimate can be obtained from our implant specialist. The components chosen will depend on the type of treatment needed. In addition to component costs, there will be professional fees and there might be hospitalisation and medicine costs. In general, implant treatment is not much more expensive than the alternatives (bridges or new dentures at shorter recurring intervals). The big difference lies with long term success. Implants can be with you for the rest of your life, if cared for properly.

At what age should implants be placed?

The youngest patients receiving implants are in their late teens, and the oldest in their 90’s. What often happens where there are missing teeth, is that the jawbone begins to shrink. This is common with denture wearers, and the ridge which is important for holding the denture, gradually disappears, affecting the fit of the denture. Tooth implants restore normal loading of the bone and thereby hinder this further loss of bone. The sooner you decide to have the implants placed, the less will be the permanent loss of bone and the easier it is for the dentist to achieve a good aesthetic result.

How is the treatment obtained?

Implant treatment is a technical and complex form of dentistry. Not all dentists wish, or are trained, to provide implant treatment. For this reason, your dentist might refer you to a specialist for part or all of the implant treatment. The surgery (placing of the implant) is done by a Maxillo-Facial and Oral Surgeon, a Periodontist, or a Dentist. The design and construction of the artificial teeth is done by a Dentist or Prosthodontist working in conjunction with a Dental Technician.

Testimonials
Our Patients Love Us

The work is excellent and done quickly. Every step was well explained with the necessary information to make informed decisions. Chair side attention to comfort, concerns (anxiety) and keeping you "in the loop" is exceptional. I feel quite blessed that I was able to chose A Dental & Denture to provide me with a brand new smile.

Excellent work, excellent service. I could not be happier my experience at A Dental. I highly recommend them.

Staff was very professional and accommodating, from the moment you enter the clinic until you leave. My fear of the dentist disappeared because of their warm welcome and cheerful disposition. Dr. Tarleton is undoubtedly highly skilled and showed good patient care by explaining every detail of the procedure that I underwent as well as post-op care and follow up. I had a very pleasant experience so I am highly recommending the whole dental team. If only I can give more than 5 stars---they are a perfect ten!

I am so grateful for finding A Dental & Denture. Everyone is so friendly, kind and I can honestly say they really care about you. I never thought I'd ever say I enjoy going to the dentist but I look forward to seeing the whole staff. A wonderful experience. Angela you are the best! Thank you all for helping me.

Any time I am in dire straits with the curse of my life, my bad teeth, I will go and see Angela, who is always the saving angel: she can help where others can't! I arrived without an appointment, because I had had an accident with my denture the night before (it broke apart) - I did not even have to wait long before Angela could see me, and a few hours later I walked out with everything repaired as perfectly as possible.
Thank you everyone for welcoming me back like an old friend!

These are the friendliest, hospitable, and flexible dentists I've ever been to. They bent over backwards to meet my needs. They also offered complimentary coffee and massage chair to help me relax after getting fillings.
They also guarantee their work and really stand by that. They saw me multiple extra times to answer questions and help me address concerns I had about them. Turns out I just have irritable teeth!
I recommend Dr. Angela and Dr. Tom to anyone with teeth...or who wants teeth!
