The most effective and long-lasting way to replace your missing teeth
At Duncraig Dental Care in Perth, we can use dental implants as a permanent solution to replace your missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, placed into the jawbone at the site of tooth loss. When an implant is set, it becomes part of your mouth. Your dental implant will look and feel just like a natural tooth!
What are the advantages of having dental implants?
Your dental implant will live in a secure, fixed position. This will reduce the pressure on surrounding teeth, and help preserve adjacent natural tooth tissue by avoiding having to cut down adjacent teeth for conventional bridgework.
Dental implants will preserve bone and significantly reduce bone resorption and deterioration that results in loss of jawbone height. Long-term data on implants suggest that these restorations last for a much longer time than conventional methods. Dental implants allow patients to feel more confident about their smile.
What is involved in the dental implant procedure?
First of all, we’ll chat about your treatment plan in an in-depth consultation. Each person’s mouth is different, which is why everyone’s treatment will vary. However, we have established a general outline of the steps towards a dental implant treatment.
A dental implant is an artificial root placed during a simple surgical procedure. The artificial root is made of a solid, biocompatible material. It is put into your jawbone with a simple surgical procedure.
After an initial healing period, the implant is left to integrate with your jawbone. The implant material is hugely biocompatible, which means the bone will bond to and grow around the implant. This permanently implants it into your jaw. This process is called osseointegration.
After a few months, we will have restored the appearance and function of your smile with a natural-looking tooth restoration.
