Dental Implants

Who Qualifies for Dental Implants?

If you have missing teeth and want dental implants, most patients qualify as long as they have healthy gums and adequate bone to support them. An exam and x-rays will give us the information we need to organise a treatment plan based on your health.

Modern advancements in dentistry allow us to perform bone grafting and sinus procedures to help patients with insufficient bone enjoy this method of replacing missing teeth. A dental implant can replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. We can also use dental implants to support bridges and secure dentures in place.

Our compassionate and patient-focused dentists will guide you through the process of dental implant treatment, giving you results that add confidence and improve oral health.

Dental implants have many benefits, including an unrestricted diet to support healthy nutrition. Additionally, they are convenient to care for.

Dental Implants at Avondale Dental Centre

Dental implants in Blockhouse Bay replace your tooth and your root, and they are the only tooth replacement option available today that represent the entire tooth anatomy.

If you have a missing tooth or teeth, speaking and chewing can be difficult. Your jawbone may shrink, and your teeth may shift toward empty spaces.

Dental implants in Blockhouse Bay offer solutions to these problems and help restore your bite function and jawbone health.

A dental implant is a thin screw made from sturdy titanium, and it takes the place of your missing tooth root. Your dentist in Blockhouse Bay surgically implants this post into your jawbone where it fuses over a period of months. When integration is complete, your dentist tops the implant with a quality dental crown that acts as a replacement tooth.

Dental implants, typically no more than six, are strong enough to support a denture or dental bridge as well.

Additionally, dental implants in Blockhouse Bay do not require specific maintenance. You simply brush and floss as usual and visit your dentist regularly for exams and cleans.

The initial step is an exam with your dentist to make sure that dental implants or implant-supported dentures are the right solutions for you.

If you would like more information, or if you would like to arrange an exam and chat with your dentist, we encourage your call.
