Effective Tooth Replacement with Dental Implants in Ipswich

Ipswich Family Dental knows that one of modern dentistry’s greatest achievements has been the development of extremely durable cosmetic dental implants that replace natural teeth. If you are living with missing or severely damaged teeth, read on to learn the many benefits of dental implants in Ipswich. Contact our team to find out we can make implants work for patients of all ages.

What are Dental Implants?

Cosmetic dental implants are made up of two distinct components; the first is a durable titanium implant that is inserted into the bone of the jaw. Once the implant is inserted, it fuses with the bone of the jaw to create an exceptionally strong foundation. The next component is a high-quality crown made from a non-corrosive material that perfectly mimics a natural tooth in look, feel and function.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Dental implants are extremely strong and allow a patient to speak and chew with total ease
  • Dental implants are used worldwide and are known for their extremely high rate of success
  • Implants are a more precise and long lasting solution than traditional dentures and bridges
  • Because they are inserted into the jawbone, implants do a much better job of retaining the structure of the face
  • Implants have been shown to maintain and even slightly improve bone density
  • High-quality materials ensure that, with proper maintenance, implants can last a lifetime
  • Implants are resistant to tooth decay and also provide stability and protection for adjacent natural teeth

Do I Need Dental Implants?

Dental implants may be the best option for patients who:

  • have cracked, hollow or missing teeth
  • have experienced damage due to traumatic injuries
  • want to replace all their natural teeth but who do not find dentures to be suitable

Cosmetic Dental Implants Procedure


Step 1: Inserting the Implant

After a thorough examination, a dental professional will install the titanium implant into the jawbone. Although this may cause some swelling or tenderness, it is perfectly natural and will be monitored by your dentist.


Step 2: Osseointegration

Osseointegration is the process by which the implant fuses with the natural bone of the jaw to create an incredibly strong base for the dental crown. This process can take anywhere between 3 to 6 months.


Step 3: Installing the Crown

Once the bone and implant have bonded, our dental experts will install a dental crown or dental bridge (for multiple teeth). Once the crown is attached, it looks, feels and functions just like a natural tooth.
