Missing teeth can cause feelings of self-consciousness when you smile, but tooth loss goes much further than appearances and often has a negative impact on your oral health. At Dental On Cue, we offer the leading-edge tooth replacement therapy with dental implants. Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth or even a full arch.
Benefits of Dental Implants
In addition to providing the most natural and reliable way of replacing missing teeth, dental implants have a number of health and cosmetic benefits that make them a popular choice in our Kew dental clinic.
- Preserve healthy bone
- Protect the bite
- Look and feel like natural teeth
- Can last a lifetime
- Require the same care as your natural teeth
- Allow for an unrestricted diet
Because dental implants are surgically rooted in the bone, they prevent bone loss that occurs following an extraction. Additionally, they fill the gap in the smile and prevent your remaining teeth from shifting toward the empty space, which can expose sensitive roots and cause malocclusion (a bad bite).
When patients want a solution to ill-fitting dentures or improved function for dental bridges, dental implants can provide a reliable solution that combines the best of both worlds.
Implant-retained dentures prevent shifting and falling when you eat and smile, making it possible to enjoy a more active social life without concern of embarrassing denture mishaps.
When replacing multiple missing teeth, dental implants improve bridge function with additional support. Implant bridges may also eliminate the need to alter healthy teeth with dental crowns to secure the bridge in place.
What to Expect with Dental Implant Treatment
Successful dental implants rely upon precise planning and evaluation. A comprehensive exam, x-rays, impressions and moulds of the teeth will provide our dentists with the necessary information to ensure a successful procedure and excellent long-term results.
Your comfort is important to us. While dental implants do require surgery, most patients find that it occurs with minimal discomfort and the entire process is well tolerated.
One of the most critical phases of treatment is the process of osseointegration when the implant post and the jawbone fuse together over the course of three to four months.
The final phase of treatment involves a custom dental crown, which our dentists will design in collaboration with a leading local dental lab for a final result that blends in seamlessly and looks dazzling when you smile.
With the proper care, including excellent home hygiene and regular dental check-ups and cleans, your dental implant can last for many years, or even a lifetime.
