For the last ten years, dental implants have become a more in-demand solution for replacing one or more teeth. Dental implants look, feel and function like a natural tooth. They are restorative dental treatments made of titanium. Implants are surgically placed into the jaw to fill the gap caused by tooth loss and replace the missing roots to place crowns or bridges.
Depending on your case, your Sunshine Coast dentist will give you a proper recommendation on what type of dental implant placement best suits your needs. Dental implant placements include single implant, multiple implants, implant denture and implant bridges.
Benefits of a Dental Implant
A dental implant has several benefits. Like the roots of natural teeth, it stimulates the jawbone when you chew. This preserves the jawbone and keeps it healthy. Also, an implant is strong, comfortable, and secure. When the restoration is in place, the implant looks and feels much like natural teeth. Other remarkable benefits of dental implants include:
- Improved appearance
- Easier eating
- Improved speech
- Improved functionality
- Improved comfort
- Boosts self-esteem
- Improves oral and dental health
How is an Implant Used?
An implant can support a variety of restorations, such as a single crown, multi-unit bridges, and full arch dentures. Some restorations, like a single crown and most bridges, are not removable. Others, like many full-arch dentures, can be removed for cleaning and before sleeping.
Diagnosis and Treatment
Depending on the situation, placing an implant involves several phases, and treatment times can widely vary. First, we determine if an implant is right for you. We discuss your health history and treatment goals and perform a comprehensive examination to check the health of your gums and jawbone. We determine if you need any additional procedures, such as bone grafting or gum surgery.
To begin the procedure, a channel is shaped in the jawbone, and then the dental implant is placed into the prepared space. At this point, it may be possible to place a temporary restoration. Over the course of the next few months, the dental implant will become securely fused to the bone. The last step is to attach your beautiful final restoration to the implant.
