Dental implants are high-tech solutions for patients with missing teeth. Tailored to your needs, dental implants are bespoke in design, made from pure Titanium and replace the root portion of a missing tooth or a missing set of teeth. They provide rigid support for the overlying crown, bridge or over-denture that will be attached to the implant, providing a long-term solution for missing teeth. If you’re looking for excellence and high-quality delivery of dental implants in Townsville, you’ve come to the right practice.
The Success of Dental Implants
At Casey Dentists, we have dental practitioners who perform dental implant treatments for patients with missing or damaged teeth. Implants allow conservative management of spaces between teeth, preventing the dentist from having to sacrifice adjacent teeth to support a prosthesis, such as a bridge. Single tooth implants restore your teeth to complete function and aesthetics and are the best long term replacement of a missing tooth. Single tooth implants have a 95% success rate at 10 years post placement.
Dr Matthew Casey, our principal dentist, was trained at the Brener Institute for advanced implant training in Sydney 2008, which is arguably the most comprehensive training facility in Australia. Dr Casey then pursued global implant training in 2016 - 2017 where he studied in Europe under some of the Masters in implants, bone regeneration and soft tissue grafitng, to become a Masters clinician in Oral Implants LLU 2017. Dr Casey has successfully completed many implant cases, allowing him to perform successful dental implant treatments for patients across Townsville.
More recently loose dentures have become a big problem in Townsville. We find placing anywhere from two - six implants in the jaw can support a strong, long lasting denture - type restoration. Ask us how ?
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Patients that visit Casey Dentists are looking for a permanent solution to their dental problem. This may involve replacing a missing tooth. The benefits of an implant include:
Requirements for Dental Implant Treatments
The presence of an implant will initiate bone remodeling of the space and preserve the bone. The implant stimulates the bone back into production, where once it lay dormant and for some people there is insufficient bone for implant placement. If you leave the space too long, there may be insufficient bone to place an implant. In this instance augmentation procedures will be required prior too, or during implant placement.
Alternatively, at Casey Dentists there is a high demand for implant supported over-dentures. Long standing denture wearers have difficulty in stabilising the lower denture due to often severe bone resorption. Placing up-to five (5) implants in the lower jaw can fully retain and support an immovable lower over denture.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risk. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Casey Dentists has a wealth of experience in dental implant treatments and other oral health services. Your satisfaction is our priority. We ensure you receive the treatment you need in a warm and welcoming facility.
People unnecessarily suffer difficulties in eating and smiling. Take the lady who recently opened up to me where her dentures flew across a restaurant dining table. If you want to eat confidently, implants can secure your denture and improve your smile. At Casey Dentists - it's teeth for life.
