Dental implants are a popular dental treatment to replace one or more missing teeth. They are strong, permanent, natural-looking replacement teeth which allow patients to smile with confidence.
Dental implants fuse directly with the jaw bone to give a durable replacement tooth that looks and feels completely natural.
For the best way to replace a missing tooth and repair your smile, book an appointment with the Turriff Dental clinic in Aberdeenshire. We provide high-quality dental implants near you.
Unlike traditional removable dentures, an implant is a long-term solution to tooth loss by providing fixed artificial teeth.
An implant itself is a small titanium post that is placed into the jawbone. Over time the bone and gum tissue grow around and bond with the titanium implant to provide a secure base, acting just like a natural tooth root.
An implant can support a single replacement tooth, several teeth, a bridge, or be used for implant-supported dentures. Turriff Dental is proud to provide quality dental implants to patients in the local Aberdeen area.
Depending on the complexity of your case, different types of implants can be used, such as:

Dental implants are the next best thing to still having your own teeth!
They allow you to be free from many issues traditionally associated with dentures; for example, they don’t move around or fall out, meaning you can eat, speak and smile without worry. Dental implants have been linked to improved confidence, healthier mouths and bigger smiles.
Some of the main benefits include:
Implants are a minor form of dental implant surgery with almost 100% success rates, so you never need to worry when opting for dental implants at Turriff Dental.
The implant procedure involves:
The metal implant (titanium screw) will be placed into the bone around the missing tooth. After this, the surrounding gum is secured over the implant to allow for osseointegration (the fusing of the implant and bone). This fusion typically takes 3–6 months.
Once the implant is fused with the surrounding bone, a post is attached, which acts as the foundational support for the implant.
This stage is when the abutment (replacement tooth) is placed onto the post, which will help to complete your smile.
Once your implant has healed, you will be able to look after it just as you would with your natural teeth. It’s important to regularly and gently brush and floss your implant to prevent gum disease. We will always provide additional dental treatment and aftercare once the surgery is completed.
The better your oral health routine, the more long-lasting your implant will be.
