About Dental Implants

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are an increasingly popular alternative to dentures, giving peopel a real confidence boost and the smile they've always wanted. A dental implant consists of a titanium rod which is screwed into the jaw to keep the replacement implant tooth (a crown, bridge or denture) firmly in position. The titanium rod essentially replaces the root of a natural tooth.  A beautifully-crafted implant crown surrounded by a healthy gum line looks like a natural tooth, giving confidence and function back to those people who may have been affected by the way they smile, talk and eat.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Compared to other tooth replacement procedures, dental implants offer:

  • Improved appearance, comfort and speech - dental implants look and feel and function like natural teeth.

  • The ability to eat better - dental implants are strong, long lasting, and restore your chewing ability.

  • More convenience - they eliminate theembarrassing inconvenience of removing partial or full dentures.

  • Improved self esteem - being able to smile with confidence makes a huge difference to your well-being.

  • Great value - Dental implants may initially be more expensive than alternative treatment, but their life span makes them a better long-term investment.

How Mona Lisa Smiles can help

Principal dentist at Mona Lisa Smiles – Dr Khosro Basirat – was trained in implant placement by Professor Tatum Hilt at the Tatum Institute and has transformed the smiles and boosted the confidence of his patients for many years.

Dr Basirat's colleagues include specialist periodontist Dr Nikos Mardas and prosthodontics specialist Dr Lambis Petridis. The hand-picked Mona Lisa Smiles team works closely together to provide the best treatment for each patient.

Before a dental implant procedure can be performed, a thorough assessment is first made. This includes X-rays, digital photographs, gum health measurements, and accurate moulds of your teeth. The replacement tooth will be carefully matched to the colour of your existing teeth.

Mona Lisa Smiles and with its excellent team can help determine which method is right for you.
