Smile Solutions for Graceville

What Are Dental Implants?

An implant is a biocompatible restoration that sets within the jaw, similar to a natural tooth root. As the bone integrates into the surface of the implant, it becomes a permanent part of the smile.

Implants are extremely predictable and stable, which allows us to affix individual crowns or multi-tooth restorations such as bridges or hybrid denture designs on top of them. A pair of implants can even be used to stabilise removable overdentures, eliminating the need for adhesives or messy pastes.

Dental Implant Advantages

  • Support bone and soft tissue structures, minimising the aging appearance caused by missing teeth
  • Easy to clean and care for (brush and floss as if it were a natural tooth)
  • Eat anything you like; implants are incredibly durable
  • Replace as few or many teeth as necessary
  • Extremely high success rate
  • Ability to last a lifetime.

Candidacy for Dental Implant Treatment

Before starting any implant therapy, we will need to ensure that your mouth is healthy and there is adequate bone to support your new restorations.

If you’ve gone an extensive length of time with missing teeth or have been treated for periodontal disease, you may need to have a bone graft to ensure there’s enough support for an implant in that area. Other pertinent medical conditions will also need to be discussed, such as medications, cardiovascular concerns and tobacco use.

What to Expect

Getting dental implants can require several visits to Essential Care Dental over the course of a 3-6 month time span. This time investment allows for proper healing and integration with the body, ensuring the stable results that you need.
