Over the next few months, the implants naturally fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This creates a stable and durable foundation for the final restoration.

  • How often should I visit the dentist for a check-up?
    We recommend twice yearly check-ups, typically every six months, to maintain optimal oral health. These routine appointments allow us to monitor your dental health, catch issues early, and provide professional cleanings for a fresh and healthy smile.
  • What is the importance of preventive dentistry?
    Preventive dentistry is the key to maintaining good oral health. By adopting preventive measures such as regular cleanings, exams, and personalised advice on oral hygiene, you can significantly reduce the risk of cavities, gum disease, and other dental concerns.

    Yes, we understand that dental emergencies can be stressful. Our team at Murphy Dental Care is here for you. Contact us, and we'll make every effort to accommodate you promptly, providing compassionate care to address your urgent dental needs.

    Maintaining good oral health at home is crucial for overall dental well-being. Brush your teeth twice daily using fluoride toothpaste, floss regularly to clean between teeth and gums, and adopt a balanced diet low in sugary snacks and beverages. Additionally, stay hydrated and avoid tobacco use. These simple habits contribute significantly to preserving your oral health between visits to Murphy Dental Care.

Simply put, implants are artificial teeth. They consist of a prosthetic root and tooth to mimic your natural anatomical structure.  First, we place a metal screw into your jawbone that acts as a replacement root for the teeth that can no longer support themselves. This ‘root’ fuses with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration so that the implant becomes a fixed part of your mouth. Once this is complete, we will attach a crown or denture to the metal post. 

We will design your implants to look and function just like your natural teeth. This makes for a comfortable, discreet alternative to options like dentures.

Dental Implants

At Murphy Dental Care, we understand the profound impact that a confident smile can have on your life. Dental implants are a transformative solution to replace missing teeth, offering both aesthetic and functional benefits. Dr. Kevin Murphy, our dedicated Practice Owner, leads our expert team in providing comprehensive dental implant services tailored to your unique needs.

How does it work?

You'll begin your journey to a restored smile with a comprehensive consultation. Dr. Kevin Murphy will assess your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if dental implants are the right solution for you.

Step 1: The Initial Consultation

Following the consultation, a personalized treatment plan is crafted to address your specific needs. This plan outlines the number of implants required, the type of restoration, and the timeline for the procedure.

Step 2: Treatment Planning

During the implant placement procedure, small titanium posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone. These posts act as artificial tooth roots, providing a secure foundation for the replacement teeth.

Step 3: Implant Placement

Step 4:  Healing and Integration

Once the implants have integrated successfully, custom-made crowns, bridges, or dentures are attached to the implants. These restorations are designed to match your natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result.

Step 5: Restoration
