Do you want a long term solution for a lifetime of wear and tear on your teeth?
Our team here at Precise Dental Surgery provide dental implants for patients with missing teeth or who are seeking an alternative to dentures. Missing teeth can have a negative effect on our eating patterns, our self-image and can potentially lead to bone loss. Our team at our Beaumont Hills, Edgecliff and Kellyville Plaza practice locations believe that often the best long term solution for missing teeth is dental implants.
There are many advantages to dental implants including:
- Dental implants can be visually appealing
Dental implants are arguably the closest thing to natural teeth that modern dentistry can provide. The implants are inserted into your jawbone and fuse together in a process known as osseointegration. Since they integrate into your jawbone like natural teeth, they are often considered the most effective way to prevent bone loss and gum recession.
- Dental implants can save your natural teeth
Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge can because the neighbouring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, which can be a significant long-term benefit to your oral health.
- Dental Implants can inspire a confident smile
With dental implants you can eliminate the need for denture pastes and glues, as well as worrying about your dentures slipping out of place. Since dental implants act and feel like natural teeth, you can once again speak and smile with confidence.
- Dental implant treatment is reliable
Dental implant treatment is one of the most reliable modern restorative dentistry treatments and the successful outcome is highly predictable.
Who is a suitable candidate to receive dental implants?
Dental implants are a suitable solution for tooth loss for most of our patients. While the implants are titanium and the crown is normally made from a porcelain material, dental implants still function remarkably similar to your natural teeth. This remarkable similarity in function and appearance means that most people are suitable candidates to wear dental implants.
During your initial consultation we will discuss your dental concerns and assess your dental health. When discussing the option of dental implants we will most be predominantly assessing your:
- Overall health
While the dental implant process can be comfortable with our sleep dentistry and pain management options, it is still important that you maintain sound general health. If you are healthy your body is that much more likely to respond positively to your treatment.
- The condition of your gums
The health of your gums is considered when we are discussing restoring your tooth loss with dental implants. Your gums act as the placeholder for your teeth and thus the health of them can affect the health of your teeth, as well as your overall dental health.
- The density of your jawbone
The dental implant ‘screws’ are placed in your jawbone and require a certain level of jawbone density in order for the implants to be successful. Despite this, for our patients that do not have enough jawbone to support the implant process, they can also receive a bone graft in order to achieve the level of jawbone density required.
During your initial consultation we can discuss the implant process with you and identify whether this treatment would be a desirable option for you.
