Implant dentistry is the solution to missing teeth and can provide one with natural looking permanent, replacement teeth. Dental implants are the alternative to dentures, especially If only one or two teeth are missing. However a full mouth implant is also an option. Implants can be done for children in their late teens up to a person in their 90’s and if cared for well, implants can last for the rest of one’s life.
Implants are Titanium posts with specially activated surfaces that are implanted into the jawbone. These Titanium posts then ultimately act as the new “root” to which the artificial tooth is attached. Doctor Rossouw is qualified to do the small procedure at the practice and will work together with the dental technician to design and construct the artificial tooth. However, in some cases general anaesthetic is necessary and should be done at a hospital.
