Replacing missing teeth with dental implants


Tooth decay and gum disease are the main causes of tooth loss in adults. If you can prevent tooth decay and gum disease then you are able to prolong the life of your teeth and enjoy a healthy and happy smile for as long as you live. It is important that you visit our dentist on a regular basis so that we can carry out a thorough examination of your teeth and gums and make sure that they are clean and healthy. We can detect signs of tooth decay or gum disease very early on before any symptoms begin to show. We will be able to help you prevent the symptoms from developing by teaching you how to look after your teeth more efficiently, providing you with antibiotics, encouraging professional dental cleaning or deep cleaning with the hygienist or other treatments which we know will improve the health of your teeth and gums. Speak to us at Spa Dental Sydney and find out about preventive dental treatment and the many options that are available to help improve your dental health.

If tooth decay or gum disease is not treated it can eventually result in tooth loss. Tooth loss has a range of negative implications, not only can it affect your dental health, it can affect your attitude to socialising and your overall wellbeing. If you avoid visiting the dentist after losing a tooth then you can cause damage to your remaining teeth which will result in further tooth loss. To prevent such issues you need to speak to our dentist here at Spa Dental Sydney and find out about replacing your missing teeth.

Dental implants

Here at the practice our most popular method of tooth replacement is with dental implants Sydney. Dental implants Sydney provide a permanent solution for missing teeth. Dental implants Sydney are small medical grade titanium screws that help you replace your missing teeth with a crown or a set of dentures that will feel just like your natural teeth.

To have oral implants you need to undergo implantation surgery and our dentist will have to make sure that you are suitable for this. This means examining your teeth and gums, making sure that there are no underlying conditions that need to be treated first. If so this will be done prior to the surgery. Our dentist will examine your gums and your jawbone to make sure that there is space for the implant to be held successfully in place. They will also make sure that you do not have any underlying medical conditions which may affect your body’s ability to heal.

The implant is screwed into your jaw and causes bone cells to form around the screw so that it is locked into place. Once this is done you can replace your missing tooth. The implant will last for the rest of your life, although the crown or dentures may need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years. Speak to our dentist today and find out more about dental implants and how they can replace your missing teeth with excellent results.

All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
