Dental Implants

If you are unhappy with your existing dentures or have missing teeth, then you may wish to consider Dental Implants. SkinTek offers a Dental Implant service to help improve your teeth’s shape, by making them look both physically and cosmetically more appealing.

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a form of cosmetic dentistry used to replace missing teeth for a natural look and feel. They are surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments. The procedure involves attaching the implants to the jawbone and gum tissue to become a stable base for one or more custom artificial replacement teeth, called dental crowns. To be able to have dental implants, you will need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support a secure implant.

Follow On Care

After a dental implant procedure, you will be advised to only have cold drinks and to try not to eat until after the anaesthetic has worn off. Hot drinks and food should be avoided for the first day after the implant surgery.
