IMPLANT DENTISTRY

If you’re living with one or more missing teeth, dental implants could be an option for restoring your smile. If you feel embarrassed to smile because of missing teeth, or you are tired of dentures that are loose and uncomfortable, today’s modern dental implants may be the way to once again eat and chew normally.

Dental Implants

Simply described, dental implants are titanium screws, which are inserted into your jawbone to form a solid foundation for tooth restorations, once the implant has completely bonded.

The implant procedure needs just a small incision in the gum line to allow placement of the titanium implant, during which time you will be completely comfortable with the help of local anesthetic.

Over three to six months your implant then securely bonds with your jawbone, while we construct your brand new tooth replacement over a series of appointments. You will then once again enjoy a full smile and restored chewing function, rejuvenating your smile and improving your quality of life

Here in Picton Dental, we use a world famous German implant system, which has over 30 years of documented clinical success.

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants (MDIs) are small diameter dental implants, which can give you a tooth replacement option for just a quarter to half the price of conventional implants.

Made from various titanium alloys just like traditional implants, mini dental implants are most often used to stabilise a loose set of dentures. MDIs can give you long-term support, and in fact some of our patients have benefited from them for several decades.

MDI placement is a relatively painless procedure that can improve your quality of life in just one appointment. Ask us about this revolutionary new procedure at your next visit with Picton Dental.
