Tubbercurry and Swinford Clinics

Dental Implants are the biggest breakthrough technology in Dentistry in the last 20-30 years.

At Western Dental we work very closely with Dental Implant Surgeons in Sligo and Galway who have placed thousands of implants successfully for patients.

What is a Dental Implant?

  • An implant is a new tooth with a metal root which knits into the jaw bone.
  • Unlike a Bridge the teeth either side are not connected to the new tooth which is a much healthier option for your teeth.
  • Implants stop the bone shrinking in your jawbone after a tooth extraction.
  • Implants can be used to connect crowns, dentures or bridges to the jawbone. Loose dentures can now be a thing of the past.
  • Implants have decades of research to back them with very high success rates.

Why you should consider Dental Implants

Where a patient has worn dentures for some time they will cause your gum and bone tissue to shrink in size.  As this occurs over time, the dentures become loose and you may experience problems with speaking, eating as well as a degree of pain and discomfort.

The most effective way of providing stabilisation for your dentures when this occurs, is to support them by dental implants which are titanium rods that are embedded into your gum.  They become incorporated into your jaw bone which can then have crowns and/or bridges attached to them to replace missing teeth.

Here at Western Dental we use the 3i implant system. Further information on how 3i implants can be used to replace missing teeth and to stabilise your dentures are in this document.

Having provided this service to many patients from counties Mayo, Sligo and Roscommon we can recommend the benefits of implants for their aesthetic look, functional and long term results.
