Thinking of replace your damaged or missing tooth with a dental implant. Book in for a consultation to discuss your needs and suitability.
At HainsDental Robina we have happy to talk to you about Implant options. Implants are the only form of restorative treatment that replaces the whole tooth. Whereas treatments such as dental bridges only replace the top part of the tooth “the crown”, the dental implant procedure replaces the tooth root and the crown.
The dental implant is a titanium screw that is surgically inserted into your jaw. The implant is made from titanium as this is a biocompatible material. Over time, your jaw will heal around the implant providing a strong and sturdy artificial tooth root for a dental crown.
The procedure and what is involved
The dental implant procedure normally involved these phases:
1. The first appointment is a consultation about what is involved with the dental implant procedure and what you can expect and to assess suitability for this treatment or alternative treatments.
2. If an implant is required we will recommend the appropriate surgeon. The implant will take between 3-6 months to bond with your jawbone.
3. Then once your jawbone has healed around the dental implant you will be ready for the restorative phase of your implant. Your new crown or bridge is then permanently secured to your implant, rejuvenating your smile and quality of life.
Why you want to replace a missing tooth
Replacing a missing tooth is about more than aesthetics. More importantly it provide you with adequate chewing function. Also, when you lose a tooth the teeth on either side begin to migrate towards the gap. This can cause a misaligned bite and lead to further jaw closing joint problems.
