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.

If you have complete or significant tooth loss, you may think that dental implants are out of reach. You might even feel that you’d need a separate implant for each missing tooth. Fortunately, today’s technologies make it much more straightforward.

Your dentist in Avondale offers implant-supported restorations in the form of implant-retained dentures and bridges.

What is the Process for Implant-Supported Dentures?

Typically, it takes four to six dental implants to anchor a denture to your jaw. First, your dentist surgically implants the tooth root replacement. Then, after they have bonded to your jawbone, we top the implants with a low-profile denture. With implant technology, you’ll never have to worry about your denture slipping or loosening.

Implant-Supported Dental Bridges

For an implant-supported bridge, it may take only one or two replacement roots to secure the prosthetic. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth attached to healthy teeth or connected with a dental implant.

To learn whether you’re a good candidate for implant technology, we have you in to chat with our implant dentist. An exam will let us know whether implant dentistry is a good option for you at this visit.

If you’re considering dental implants in Avondale, Auckland, we bring you in to consult with our dentist. This consultation allows you to share your smile goals, ask questions and share your concerns. Your dentist will then provide an examination and possibly an x-ray to see how dental implants will work for you.

Provided you’re a good candidate for implant dentistry, we schedule your implant surgery. At this visit, your dentist numbs the gum area and implants a tooth root replacement. After a few months—when the new root has assimilated to your natural jawbone, we provide a dental crown. This crown is your replacement tooth.

With dental implants in Avondale, you’ll be able to enjoy meals again, speak with ease, and we hope your new smile encourages you to smile with confidence.

Following crown placement, your dentist will talk to you about implant care. The good news is that your implant does not require special upkeep. You’ll brush it and floss around it just like a natural tooth. And you’ll continue to visit your dentist regularly for exams and cleans.
