Dental implants offer a range of benefits for people looking to fill the missing gaps in their teeth. Not only do they promote a variety of oral health benefits, they offer aesthetic benefits also.
At Withers Dental, our caring dentists will create a personalised treatment plan that will accommodate your schedule and budget.
Take a look at our blog post below to find out the truth about dental implants.
WHAT IS IT
A dental implant is an artificial tooth that consists of a titanium screw. The artificial tooth is placed in missing gaps of your teeth, allowing them to look and function like real teeth.
Patients can receive one or multiple dental implants, depending on how many gaps are in their teeth, and are an effective alternative to dentures.
There are various benefits to having dental implants. Whether you’re missing one tooth or several, consider these reasons for choosing dental implants:
- Improved appearance (no more hiding your smile)
- Improved comfort
- Enhanced speech (no more slips when talking)
- Improved eating functionality (bite down with confidence)
- Improved oral health (less risk of gum disease)
- Enhanced jaw function
Dental implants are a common, cost-effective choice when replacing missing teeth. At Withers Dental, we provide durable and affordable dental implants that will make you smile.
No two jaws are the same. That’s why we tailor a personalised treatment plan in accordance with the condition of your jawbone.
Treatment generally takes between 6 to 12 months and the procedure is completed at our modern dental clinic.
In order to determine the cost and duration of treatment, we begin with a diagnostic x-ray and 3D CBVT scan to ascertain the condition of your jawline structure, as well as bone density.
If there is not enough bone to support the dental implant, we may require adding more with grafting. Our bone graft materials are TGA approved for peace of mind.
Having a dental implant requires minor surgery, and it is performed under a general anaesthetic, oral sedation or local anaesthetic.
The truth about dental implants is that they promote a variety of oral health benefits.
Not only do they improve jaw function, speaking and eating capabilities, they also look better and contribute to enhanced self-esteem.
