Dental implants are one of the most durable and efficient options for replacing missing teeth. These individually-designed ceramic teeth are anchored into the jaw with titanium structures that mimic the tooth’s root. Single implants are used to replace individual teeth or multiple dental implants can form a bridge for larger gaps.
If the patient lacks teeth but there is enough bone in the jaw to support implants, we can create implant-supported dentures that are either fixed or removable, depending on individual preferences. If you need dental implants, our Gosford professionals can help.
Our Procedure for Dental Implants
The process of getting a tooth implant requires time and patience because it takes a few appointments to complete. First, your dentist will remove the damaged tooth. If your jaw requires additional support, a bone graft may be necessary. The metal dental implant is screwed into the bone and left to heal, becoming a permanent part of your mouth.
After you have fully healed, your dentist will attach an abutment to the metal structure and allow the soft tissue to heal. Finally, your artificial tooth will be placed on top of the abutment. This process can take several months and multiple appointments due to the healing time, but you will be left with a strong and realistic.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants can restore the function, appearance and form of your teeth. Other benefits include:
- Greater bite force than dentures
- Restoring the mouth to its natural state
- Preserved facial structures prevent bone resorption
- Improved appearance and smile
- No damage to adjacent teeth
- Easy to clean
- Improved confidence and self-esteem
Things to Keep in Mind
Implants are unsuitable in some cases, including:
- Smokers – cigarettes interfere with the healing process and may cause the implant to fail
- Certain medical conditions, such as bone diseases and uncontrolled diabetes
- People under the age of 21
- Some medications aren’t compatible with dental implants
