If you have missing teeth, you have probably learned that there are a few tooth replacements out there. However, your dentist in New Castle prefers the permanence of dental implants. And our patients have been thrilled with their results.
Dental implants are the only technology that restores the entire anatomy of your tooth; this includes the root and the crown.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer both oral health and aesthetic benefits.
When teeth are missing, the teeth left behind migrate toward smile gaps. This leaves you vulnerable to tooth wear, cavities and even future tooth loss. Dental implants close these gaps. Tooth loss also promotes jawbone deterioration, and dental implants may help stimulate your jawbone to remain viable.
Dental implants also do not require additional care outside of brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist in Charlestown, NSW for exams and teeth cleanings. You do not need adhesives or special cleansers for your dental implants.
Aesthetically, dental implants look and function more like natural teeth compared to removable options.
Your Dental Implant Surgery
If you’re a good candidate for dental implants, your dentist surgically implants replacement roots into your jawbone—making sure the area is thoroughly numb. We can provide a single implant for one lost tooth, or implant-supported restorations like dentures as a solution to complete tooth loss. With the latter option, we typically use four to six replacement roots.
Over a few months, your replacement roots integrate to your jawbone. When this process is complete, we place your dental crown or prosthetic.
With your teeth restored, you’ll be able to enjoy meals again. And you may feel more confident with a complete smile.
