Dental Implants Can Replace Your Missing Tooth
Whether you’re missing one tooth, a few teeth, or even all your teeth, dental implants could be the solution to help you speak, chew, and smile naturally once again.
Our team care about the effect missing teeth can have on your life. When you’re missing a tooth, you may lack self-confidence, be hesitant to smile, and have difficulty chewing or speaking. Precision dental implants from our Paddington dental practice could be your answer.
At Renton Dental Dr Gus Freitas has a large experience to replace missing teeth with dental implants, giving you a strong, stable, and long-lasting tooth restoration.
You won’t be rushed into making a decision regarding your own oral health. We will explain the pros and cons of all your tooth replacement options, and give you the time and space to make your own decision.
Exploring Your Tooth Replacement Options
Before we begin your treatment, we take the time to talk with you, understand your situation, and determine if dental implants are the ideal solution for your needs. We will take x-rays, examine your mouth, and work out with you the very best way to replace your missing tooth or teeth, whether that’s a dental bridge, dentures, or dental implants.
The important thing to remember when you’re missing a tooth, is that there’s more at stake than simply the obvious impact on your smile. A lost tooth can affect the function of your teeth, their durability, and your overall oral health. There is also the potential of tooth decay, gum disease, or bone loss.
Because of the way dental implants bond strongly with your bone and replace your missing tooth root, they help to preserve bone and prevent it deteriorating over time.
All of these reasons explain why the Renton Dental team are so focused on ensuring the best tooth replacement solution for you as our patient.
Your Dental Implant Placement Surgery
Simply described, a dental implant is an incredibly strong titanium post, which is surgically placed into your jawbone in a minimally invasive procedure. This extremely biocompatible material is then left undisturbed under your gum tissue, to allow your jaw bone to grow around and bond to your new dental implant.
Once the implant has securely bonded with your bone, you’ll return to your oral surgeon, who will uncover the implant and attach a small cap called a healing abutment to it.
After another short break to allow your gum to heal, the healing abutment is replaced with the final titanium post which will support a dental crown.
How Dental Implants Restore Your Missing Teeth
With your dental implant placed, precise digital technology and photos of the area will be used, allowing a detailed crown to be produced at a local dental laboratory. Your dental crown will then be attached to your implant
The entire dental implant process will take time to fully restore your missing tooth and integrate it strongly and safely into your bone.
Ensuring the Best Result for Your Dental Implants
At every stage, our dedicated team will work to maximise the success of your dental implants. For example, to ensure the precise position of your implant, modern software and digital intra oral scanners are used. This is made to fit accurately around your teeth to guide the placement of the implant by the surgeon. This results in your replacement dental crown aligning properly with your natural teeth.
With modern dental implants, you can once more enjoy a complete, attractive, and very natural-looking smile.
