If you are in need of a dental implant, then look no further than the professionals at Pinnacle Dental. Dental implants are a common treatment provided for our patients
We use the latest technology for our dental implant procedures which guarantees you will receive nothing but the best quality implants that money can buy.
That is why we are Docklands number one choice when it comes to dental implants!
At Pinnacle Dental, we use dental implants to fill gaps in your mouth that are created by missing teeth or teeth that have been extracted.
When a tooth has been extracted, or you lose a tooth for whatever reason, the gap that’s left will widen over time and can even result in crooked teeth if this gap isn’t filled with another tooth.
We fully understand the issues that can arise if you don't fill these gaps as soon as possible and that is where dental implants from Pinnacle Dental will help you.
For some people, getting ordinary dentures and bridges is simply not an option. This may be because they aren’t comfortable or it could be for other reasons such as poor ridges or sore spots.
One key benefits of implants from Pinnacle Dental is that any adjacent teeth don’t have to be ground down or prepared to effectively hold the replacement tooth/teeth in place.
This means that the procedure is efficient and seamless and that you end up with a result worth smiling about!

How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are screw-like anchors designed to be used as artificial replacements for the natural roots of missing teeth.
They are essentially made from materials compatible with the human body, such as titanium, and are placed into or above the jawbone.
This way, they offer a stable base for artificial teeth replacements, such as bridges, dental crowns, and dentures.
When the implant is securely positioned on the jawbone, we will then mount the replacement tooth/teeth on them.
The implant is usually applied in two stages.
With the traditional method, the gum will first be cut open to expose the jawbone. The implant is then drilled into and implanted on the jawbone.
During the second stage, the gums will have fully healed and the artificial tooth is fixed or mounted on the implant.
Dental implants are quite a popular choice when it comes to replacing missing teeth as they provide a safe, long-term solution.
They are the most natural-looking tooth replacement option and are ideal for replacing badly diseased or missing teeth.
They are also a great alternative for dentures and can last you a lifetime with proper care. Some of the benefits of Dental Implants are as follows:
- Dental implants provide an incredibly sturdy, strong, and long-lasting tooth replacement solution.
- While they do require some periodic adjustments, dental implants are a low-maintenance option in comparison to other options such as dentures.
- Since dental implants function just like natural teeth, they are more comfortable and convenient. They also restore the full strength of your bite.
- Dental implants help to prevent the negative effects of tooth loss, including bone atrophy, gum recession, and speech difficulties. It also helps to maintain the jaw and the rest of the natural teeth in the mouth.
- Implants are secured into the jaw, meaning you don’t have to worry about the stress (and embarrassment) of having to remove a prosthesis.
Dental Implant Procedure
A typical dental implant procedure can take anywhere from between 3 to 6 months from start to finish.
During the initial visit, we will evaluate the health of your bones and gum.
This will help us to determine the condition of your general oral health, and see if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
If there’s a damaged tooth, it’s first removed and then an implant is installed into the jaw.
A screw is then inserted to keep debris from entering the implant. On average, it takes 3 to 6 months for the implant to fuse with the jawbone.
Within this time, the gum is secured over the implant. When you come back to our clinic, the implant is then uncovered and an extension referred to like a post, is attached.
When the gum tissue is fully healed, the post and the implant will both serve as the foundation for placing the new tooth.
Finally, an artificial tooth that matches the colour, size, and shape of your natural teeth is made. It’s then installed onto the implant post and from there, you can enjoy your beautiful smile.
The best thing about implants is that they can last you a lifetime with proper oral care and hygiene.
