It doesn’t matter why your teeth are missing, or how many there are…implants are now considered the treatment method of choice. Replacing teeth as soon as possible with a dental implant can help you avoid the complications caused by missing teeth throughout your mouth.
Missing teeth can cause:
• Shifting and drifting of other teeth in the mouth
• Loss of bone structure
• Abnormal tooth wear due to irregular pressure against other teeth
• An increased risk for tooth decay
• A higher chance of developing periodontal disease
Instead, dental implants provide our patients to have permanently anchored teeth that look and function just like their natural teeth!
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are place permanently into the bone of your jaw. The material is made of titanium, which is extremely biocompatible (it’s even used for joint replacements) and encourages fusion of new bone around the root. One the titanium root has been implanted, a permanent restoration such as a crown or bridge can be placed on top of it. Implants are used to replace any given number of missing teeth, and are so strong that even one implant can support multiple tooth restorations.
How many missing teeth can be replaced with a dental implant?
That’s a great question! Dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire mouth full of teeth. Since the titanium root is so strong, it can support larger restorations than a natural tooth. From single crowns, multiple-tooth dental bridges, to full mouth implant-supported dentures, your implant options are limitless.
What are the advantages of having dental implants?
When you have dental implants, you’ll have a permanent tooth replacement option. You’ll never have to wear a removable appliance that feels unnatural or is uncomfortable. Missing teeth cause other teeth throughout the mouth to drift out of place. This makes people prone to developing problems around those leaning teeth, like cavities, bone loss, or gum disease. It also poses an aesthetic concern. By replacing your missing tooth as soon as possible, you can ensure that teeth will retain their natural positioning without compromising their function.
How successful is the treatment for implants?
Very successful! Dental implants have one of the highest success rates of any type of dental treatment. If you’re a non-smoker with good oral hygiene, your success rate is almost 100%. Routine preventive care and dental check-ups help keep your implants lasting for years.
What is dental implant treatment like?
Most dental implant treatments take two appointments. After your consultation with one of our Townsville Dental Implant dentists, we’ll schedule your implant placement. This appointment involves minor surgery, where the implant root is placed directly into the bone. You’ll then need to wait 3-6 months for full bone formation to occur around your implant root. Once this process called osseointegration has taken place, you’ll return for the placement of your permanent restoration on top of the implant.
How long will my implants last?
Dental implants are designed to last for a lifetime. The strength of the titanium and the body’s ability to fuse directly to the implant root means it lasts much longer than any other kind of treatment. From time to time, a new restoration may be needed on top of the implant. The majority of dental implants last at least 25 years or more.
How much is the treatment for dental implants?
The treatment for Dental Implants in Townsville will vary, depending on the number of teeth being replaced and the type of restoration that you’ve decided on. As few as 4 implant roots can be used to support a full-mouth denture, but individual tooth replacements require their own implant root. After your private consultation with one of our dentists, you’ll have a good estimate for Dental Implant costs in Townsville.
