Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a permanent solution for missing teeth.

Implants replace teeth with a screw that is placed into the jaw bone. When this has healed, a crown can be placed onto the implant as a replacement for the tooth. The implant, which is made from surgical grade titanium, and the crown should last for many years if cared for properly. The crown can be treated the same as a natural tooth and can be replaced if necessary. If you are looking for dental implants, Moonah Dental Centre can help you.

Dental implants can replace individual missing teeth, or they can replace a number of teeth at once. They can even be used to replace whole rows of teeth using some systems, requiring only a few implants to do so. Before having dental implants, it is important to check that you are a candidate. Having dental implants requires surgery, so you need to be a generally healthy individual who is able to undergo surgery. In addition, there must be enough healthy bone tissue to hold the implant in place. If this is not the case, sometimes a bone graft can be performed to strengthen the bone before an implant is inserted.

If you want a permanent solution to one or more missing teeth, dental implants provide a fantastic option. A consultation with your dentist before having the procedure will check if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment, and help you to weigh the risks and benefits of dental implants.
