Dental implants provide another alternative to replace missing teeth, dentures and/or bridgework.
They prevent bone loss in the jaw and may prevent gum recession. Implants are usually more comfortable than dentures. Unlike bridges, they do not require any cutting or reshaping of the tooth.
Implants are designed to last for many years.
It is very common for people to have more than one tooth missing or even a span of teeth missing. It is no longer necessary to fill these gaps with dentures or to cut down neighbouring teeth for bridges. The team at the Whitfords Dental Centre will restore what has been lost and your next set of teeth can come courtesy of implant dentistry.
The number of implants necessary depends on the number of missing teeth and the quality of your bone. Rest assured that your individual case will be assessed with the latest implant technology and techniques in mind.
Here at the Whitfords Dental Centre, we possess the necessary skills set to accommodate for all scenarios.
When all of your teeth are missing, replacement used to mean dentures. Dentures are a handicap.
Implants are a way to make sure your next set of teeth look and feel natural. By placing multiple strategically positioned implants around the jaw, they can form the foundations for a full set of beautiful teeth. Nowadays, this often involves using the All on 4 concept
Each case must be carefully considered on an individual basis. The amount and quality of bone must be measured and the direction of any bone and soft tissue loss carefully considered. The number of implants will vary as will the material and techniques in the manufacture of your new teeth.
The team at the Whitfords Dental Centre have many years experience in the consideration of these factors and can help guide you to the ideal solution for your personal situation.
The aim remains the same: To provide you with the confidence and comfort that a full set of natural looking teeth can provide. Over time your implant retained teeth will feel just like natural teeth.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
