- Dentures can make eating or chew difficult for you. Dental implants act like your own tooth – so you can enjoy your food without pain and fear.

FAQs on Dental Implants
How long will my dental implants last?
Dentists surgically place a titanium post in the patient’s jawbone and it works as a root of the crown. If taken care off properly with adequate brushing and flossing, an implant can last a lifetime.
What shall I do after dental implant surgery?
Do not eat until the local anaesthetic has worn off. Try to avoid hot drinks and food for the first day. Do not press or try to move the tooth or gum with your fingers and tongue.
It is normal to have some swelling or to bruise after the treatment which should go back to normal within a week.
You should start cleaning your other teeth as standard with a toothbrush, commencing on the evening of your surgery. Avoid brushing the surgical site for the first few days, but then begin to clean this area with a toothbrush as well carefully, once tenderness permits.
If you have been given a course of antibiotics to take after your surgery, please ensure that you complete the course.
