What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants replace a tooth, multiple teeth or give strong support to your dentures. Implants can be used in various ways to offer a fixed, long lasting and cosmetic outcome. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, implants may be the ideal result for you. Implants are the closest outcome to having your own tooth back!

  1. Surrounding teeth are unaffected – Since the implant is inserted into the jawbone, the adjacent teeth are not affected. This is very important if these teeth have any large fillings, as other ways of replacing missing teeth would mean that sound tooth structure would be taken away.
  2. Preservation of bone levels – Implants behave exactly like the roots of our own teeth, serving to stimulate the bone and preserving it. Keeping the bone helps maintain our facial shape and prevents premature ageing.
  3. Improved biting pressure – Patients who have had dentures for a long time usually can only apply one-tenth the biting pressure of natural teeth. Dental implants restore the amount of biting pressure that can be withstood to nearly the same level of healthy natural teeth.
  4. Comfort and fit – The usual problems associated with dentures that slip and slide (due to a lack of bone) like sores, poor function and clicking sounds are eliminated by dental implants because the replacement teeth are anchored securely to the implants in the jawbone.
  5. Longevity and reliability – The success rate for dental implants is the highest of any form of dentistry. The human body recognises titanium in the same way as it does a tooth root, so the body accepts the implants. Once this integration occurs and, with proper oral hygiene and care, there are few complications.
  6. Increased self-confidence – At our Adelaide practice, we’ve noticed our patients who’ve had their teeth restored feel a lot better about themselves once they can smile, laugh, talk and eat again with confidence.
So how does the procedure work? It's simple

STEP:1

PREPARATION

Locations of missing teeth are carefully assessed and records are taken to detect the amount of bone present in the jaw, the space available for the implant and how the bite comes together. The surgeon then plans the surgery, according to those initial findings.

STEP:2


PLACEMENT

Dental implants are placed where the teeth are missing and left in place for the bone to heal around them.

STEP:3


ASSESSMENT

After a period of healing, the dental implants are tested to make sure they are solid and healthy before a tooth is attached to them.

STEP:4


FABRICATION

Moulds are taken and a tooth is fabricated to attach to the dental implant. This tooth is carefully crafted to fit the implant and the surrounding teeth precisely.

STEP:5


SMILE!

Teeth are tried in and then attached to the implant once you and your dentist are happy with the results. Regular monitoring of the implants by the dentist occur every 6 months.
