Dental implants are a transformative way to permanently restore your smile and replace missing teeth. If you are missing teeth, read on to find out about the processes involved and the main benefits of opting for dental implants at Integra Dental on the Gold Coast.
What are Dental Implants made from?
Dental implants are pieces of titanium alloy – a highly biocompatible material – that are screwed into the jaw bone to allow for a dental implant crown (an artificial tooth) to be attached permanently.
The dental crowns or artificial teeth that are secured to the metal implant are usually crafted from porcelain or another tooth-like material. Each single tooth replacement is custom-made for each individual person, so as to match their existing tooth structure, bite, and appearance perfectly.
Tooth implants can be a long term solution due to the fact that the titanium screws actually stimulate the growth of the jaw bone and can support the overall structure of the mouth and teeth.
The Dental Implant Procedure
At your initial consultation at Integra Dental, the dentist will examine your oral health as well as your existing jaw bone structure to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Should you have gum disease, or bone loss from missing teeth, the dentist will advise of your possible options for treatment.
Following on from your consultation, a dental implant treatment plan will be created to suit your specific dental and oral health needs. If tooth implants are the right solution to replace your missing teeth, then Integra Dental will create a tailor-made artificial tooth that matches your natural teeth.
Once your implant has been fabricated, you will then have the implant fitted along with the dental implant crown.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks, which our team will go over thoroughly with you in advance of any dental implant procedures. However, thanks to the advancements in technology and modern dentistry, the risks associated with dental implants are quite minimal.
Furthermore, the team here at Integra Dental uses only high quality materials to ensure only the best possible outcome for our patients.
There are many benefits to getting dental implants such as:
- Improved speech
- Better functionality (easier to chew your food)
- Aesthetically pleasing (they are designed to look natural)
- Maintain the bone structure of the jaw
While there are other dental treatments in terms of tooth replacement, dental implants are one of the best as they are designed to be a permanent solution and are not only functional but also look just like your natural teeth. With proper oral care, they will last a lifetime, giving you the freedom to enjoy life without worrying about missing teeth.
