Dr Scott Mennell can offer not just the restorative side of implant dentistry but also the surgical saving the hassle of needing to see a specialist. Dental implants are highly successful and the gold standard to replacing a missing tooth or teeth if the situation permits. The technique has been around for over 40 years and has a much higher success rate and longevity than a bridge or denture.
A Dental implant is as small as 3mm x 8mm titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone with minimal surgical trauma and recovery. This serves as the foundation to restore the tooth acting as the root or base of the tooth. Once this has integrated and healed over a few weeks later a crown is screwed into the implant and restored to a highly aesthetic and strong restoration. Implants are extremely biocompatible for the mouth and very save biologically.
