Implants to Replace Missing Teeth
Many patients who are missing teeth, complain it is difficult to do simple things like eat a steak. Those with dentures often find that they will move around and fall out when they laugh.
As dentistry has evolved, so has the technology to fix and replace teeth. A missing tooth causes other teeth to become burdened with extra chewing forces and causes tooth fracture and excessive wear. Just like gears in a cog, a missing tooth can have a significant impact on wear and longevity.
An implant is a titanium support that is inserted into the bone. After a number of months, the Implant integrates with the body and becomes a strong support for a custom made tooth (a crown). As a result, once the implant is fixed you can treat it just like a normal tooth.
Just like normal teeth, they require care and are usually the ideal replacement for a missing tooth. An assessment with one of our experienced dentists will determine if you are a good candidate. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.
Our dentists use the highest grade of titanium in the implants to accelerate your body's acceptance of the crown. For your convenience, all stages of the implant placement are completed in our convenient location in Salisbury, and local to Moorooka and Tarragindi.
