The implants are titanium screws placed into the jaw, to replace original roots. Depending on the treatment, you may need between 4 and 8 implants to secure each denture in place. It’s a straightforward process which can be completed under local anaesthetic. The implants will need three to six months to heal and bond with your jaw bone to provide a solid support for your replacement tooth.
Temporary replacement teeth are usually fitted at the same time as your implant placement, which will stay in place until the final restoration appointment.
Once your jaw has healed, an abutment will be fixed to the implant to hold your denture in place. Abutments are produced in titanium, gold or porcelain, and can come as a standard fit or crafted specifically for you. These options offer a range of aesthetics results, depending on your requirements.
Dentures are then fitted on top, to replace your missing teeth. Your Ashburton dentist will carefully match the colour of your crown to your natural teeth.

"At Moor Dental I have found everyone to be very professional, friendly and welcoming. My daughter & I have always been very nervous of Dentist, my daughter has a needle phobia. Moor Dental have given us confidence and always come away with a happy experience. Very highly recommend. You won't be disappointed with Moor Dental in any way."
"As somebody with some phobias of dentistry and most medical practices, I was extremely hesitant to visit the dentist. While my nerves were making it hard for me to relax, the staff did not. They were friendly, polite, caring, and professional. I had two appointments after the initial assessment, for cleaning and a couple of fillings. As you can imagine, I was terrified. But by the second day, with how at ease I felt due to their attitude and competence, I let them get on with the treatment and didn't feel half as bad. They also offer sedation, for those overly anxious with regards to treatment. Which is something I thought I would need, but gladly didn't. I would recommend Moor Dental Care to anybody."
"They are brilliant the receptionist are so welcoming makes you feel at ease I went as was in a lot of pain and my usual dentist didn't have a dentist for months. But Moor Dental Care did my treatment and we now travel there from Tavistock. Wonderful dentist."
