What is an implant?

A dental implant is a metal screw which can be used to substitute a missing tooth root. It is made of ultra-pure titanium and the surface Sample Imageis treated to encourage bone to grow on the surface of the implant. The current technique was developed more than 30 years ago and is a highly successful procedure.

A dental implant can be used to support a crown, a bridge or a denture depending on patients’ individual needs.

ImplantsOnce the implant has been placed it is normally allowed to heal undisturbed for approximately 8 weeks prior to attaching the crown, bridge or denture.

Torrington dental practice work closely with the Straumann Implant Company, who are based in Switzerland. Straumann are one of the largest implant companies in the World with a global reputation for research and development to the highest of standards.

We have also recently started working with a French Implant Company, TBR, who have recently developed an innovative design which Sample Imagepromotes gum attachment around the neck of the implant. Many hundreds of thousands of such implants have been placed worldwide, but has only recently been introduced to the UK. Ian Mills was in fact the first dentist in the UK to use this innovative design, and works closely with TBR in developing their product in the UK.
