Losing a tooth as an adult can be an embarrassing and often scary situation to find yourself in. Rest assured that you are not alone; a large percentage of the adult population here in Australia have at least one missing tooth whether as a result of an accident or an injury, poor oral hygiene or having to undergo a tooth extraction. If you are missing a tooth or you are missing multiple teeth or you are considering replacing your teeth then you need to speak to a master dental surgeon and find out about dental implants Bondi Junction.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants Bondi Junction are the gold standard in tooth replacement therapy. Over the last two or three decades they have seen a surge in uptake and continue to grow in popularity for replacing missing teeth. This is because dental implants Bondi Junction are a permanent solution for tooth replacement. With good oral hygiene your dental implants will last you for the rest of your life. Dental implants are small titanium components which have been designed to replace the root of your missing tooth so that your prosthetic is fitted firmly and securely in the mouth to restore the full function of your teeth as well as create an excellent aesthetic result.
Tooth replacement without dental implants
Without dental implants your crown, bridge or dentures sit on the surface of your gum. Although this means that they are highly convenient and you can take them out of your mouth and place them back in again as necessary, they are less sturdy than if they were fixed in your mouth. With dental implants Bondi Junction your crown, bridge or dentures will be securely attached to the implant to provide you with full confidence and a beautiful smile.
Dental implants for you
Your dentist will make sure that dental implants are suitable for you. This means assessing the health of your teeth and gums and making sure that you have sufficient healthy bone to hold the implant in place. Any restorative dental treatment will be carried out prior to dental implant surgery and if you require bone grafting then this will be carried out prior to the surgery too.
Dental implant surgery is an invasive procedure and you will be offered a range of sedation techniques depending on your personal preference. A small hole will be drilled into the bone socket of your missing tooth and the implant will be placed directly into the hole to initiate a process called Osseointegration. This will cause bone cells to form around the dental implant, fixing it securely in place. This procedure takes approximately 3 to 4 months to complete and once the dentist is satisfied that the implant is firmly integrated into your jaw bone then your choice of prosthetic can be attached to the implant to restore the full functioning and appearance of your mouth.
