From a loss of confidence through to difficulty chewing, missing teeth can affect a person in different ways. Our dentists can address these concerns using highly effective and long-lasting dental implants. We can help to restore function and confidence with a healthy, natural-looking and complete smile.
Dental implants work by replacing three missing parts:
- the root of the tooth,
- a small volume of bone around the missing tooth, and then
- the crown of the tooth.
All three components need to be meticulously planned out and placed with near perfection to provide a long-lasting, aesthetic result.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental Implants work to provide replacement of any missing teeth without affecting the neighbouring teeth, resulting in the following outcomes to patients:
- A more even smile you can feel confident in,
- Easier eating and chewing,
- Improved speech, and
- A more even facial structure.
Our dentists use the most current scanning and photographic techniques to ensure a stress-free experience and a porcelain crown that blends in with the colour and contour of your teeth.
With the help of dental implants, we can fully remedy toothlessness and strongly improve chewing and speaking abilities as well as restore a beautiful smile. Implants can also serve as carriers of a fixed dental bridge or denture.
Who can benefit from dental implants?
As quality of life and confidence can be affected by missing teeth, any adult with missing teeth who has good general and oral health can benefit from a dental implant procedure.
At Edward Street Dental, we use an experienced and trusted team of local Periodontists to provide dental implants in Brisbane to adults who have good oral health. As this is a surgical procedure, there is a risk of infection if the client has ongoing gum disease. Therefore, if our dentist detects any signs of gum disease, this will be treated before proceeding with dental implants. Your dentist will also recommend that clients with uncontrolled diabetes, a current smoking status, and a history of radiotherapy to the jaw area do not proceed with dental implants.
