What is involved in getting a dental implant?

There are usually three steps involved in implant treatment.

  1. First the implant screw is placed surgically into the bone.
  2. After a suitable healing time, usually 8 weeks, an impression (or mould) is taken of the implant and sent to the lab for the crown to be made.
  3. Finally, the crown (or artificial tooth) is screwed or cemented to the implant.

What is the difference between a holistic dentist and a general dentist?

  • The philosophy behind holistic dentistry revolves around eliminating any sources of chemical or bacterial toxicity from the mouth.
  • Chemical and bacterial toxins all contribute towards a whole host of degenerative diseases of the body. Dental on George therefore offers exceptionally high quality filling materials which work more harmoniously with the body and specialise in safely removing filling materials which may contain mercury.
  • Sources of bacterial toxicity include bacteria found in gum disease; infected teeth and incompletely extracted teeth from previous treatments. Dental on George offers treatment options to address all these sources of bacterial toxicity.
