Dental Implants

If you have a missing tooth or teeth, it may impact everything from your bite to your smile confidence. And we want to help.

Your dentist in Charlestown, NSW recommends dental implants more often than other tooth replacement options for several reasons, including:

  • Dental implants in Charlestown, NSW replace your tooth and your root, making them closer to natural teeth than other options.
  • Dental implants stimulate your jawbone, which may mean less bone loss—a natural occurrence when teeth are missing.
  • Dental implants can support an arch of restoration teeth if you have significant tooth loss. 
  • Dental implants do not require special care other than what you’re already doing—visiting your dentist regularly for exams and cleans and brushing and flossing daily.

To learn whether dental implants are right for you, we encourage your call to arrange an exam and consultation. Your dentist in Charlestown discusses your smile goals with you and may take x-rays if no current films are available.

Considerations for dental implants may include, the health of your jaw, placement of your upper sinus, and any health conditions. In some cases, pre-treatments may be in order to bring you into candidacy for your implants.

What is a Dental Implant?

A Dental implant is a thin post made from sturdy titanium. This post is surgically implanted in your jawbone and bonds with the bone over a period of months. When bonding is complete, your dentist in Charlestown, NSW provides a replacement tooth or dental crown to complete your dental implant. 

If you have multiple missing teeth or full tooth loss, an implant-supported denture may be a good option for you.
