Are you missing one or more of your teeth? If you're looking for a permanent solution with a very high success rate, consider dental implants.Over the last 50 years or so, implants have been successfully used to replace missing teeth all over the world. Today, the ideal treatment for replacing missing teeth is through implant dentistry.
Quality Dental Care offers dental implants, as well as dentures, to our patients in Bondi Junction.
A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium. This root is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth, or crown, is attached to the implant, which acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.
Â· Phase 1: Insertion of Implant
An implant is actually an artificial titanium root for your tooth. This titanium fixture is a biocompatible material that is lightweight and strong,which makes it ideal for insertion within the jawbone. After placement, there is a follow-up appointment to assess the progress of your healing. This healing process takes approximately 3-6 months because it involves the jawbone fusing over the implant, which secures the implant in the bone.
Â· Phase 2: Placement of Permanent Crown above the Implant
Once the bone has successfully attached to the implant, we are able to construct the crown portion.
Patients generally consider dental implants to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Implants are a better, more permanent alternative to a bridge or denture.They restore your chewing and speaking capabilities, they prevent teeth from moving and they maintain your natural facial structure.
