Dental implants require that you have sufficient healthy bone to hold the implant in place and if tooth loss is left unattended then bone decay may be an issue. If you think you may be affected it’s recommended you contact your Dentist Sydney as soon as possible.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are designed to replace the root of your missing tooth. The Dentist Sydney will check the health of your remaining teeth and any underlying dental issues will be treated to ensure that dental implants do not affect any issues that you may have or that the treatment process is not hindered by any issues either. The dentist may need to drill into your jaw bone and then the implant is placed in the hole which will initiate osseointegration of the implant into the bone. This means that osteoblasts form around the dental implant to help it fuse into the bone permanently. This process can take up to 3 months and during this time you can visit your dentist to make sure that the process is coming along successfully. Once your dentist is happy that your implant is fused into the bone, a connector post known as an abutment will be attached to the implant to which your choice of prosthetic can be securely attached.
Advantages of dental implants
Dental implants are alluring and therefore it is a popular choice of treatment for tooth replacement. Dental implants are reliable and have longevity as titanium is a durable material and can withhold force. They provide a strong and secure foundation for your choice of prosthetic. With good oral hygiene dental implants are able to remain fused in your bone successfully for decades. Successful fusion with your natural bone enables dental implants to remain discreet and almost invisible in your mouth. They also help improve the appearance of your smile overall because they provide a proven alternative to your missing tooth.
