What You Should Know About Dental Implants

When meeting new people, their smile may be the first thing you notice. Sometimes people to feel conscious about their smile, but people with missing teeth most certainly even feel more conscious.

Years ago, the immediate solution to missing teeth was getting dental bridges or dentures; people would endure the trouble, discomfort and the need for regular denture maintenance. Fortunately, modern dentistry has created techniques to provide an easy solution for missing teeth, dental implants.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial teeth roots that are placed in a patient’s jaw to hold a dental bridge or replace a tooth. Dental implants are one of the best solutions for people who have lost their teeth from an accident, injury or disease. Implants provide a long-term solution for missing teeth as they support overdentures, bridges and overlying crowns.

At Casey Dentists, we have a team of experienced dentists who have a special interest in implants that provide bespoke titanium implants. If you have missing teeth and  are looking for practices that offer high-quality dental implants in Townsville, here are a few facts you might want to know:

Dental implants provide long-term solutions to missing teeth

People usually think it’s harmless but missing teeth have long-term consequences when left untreated. Missing teeth can lead to difficulty in eating and speaking, and can even change the shape of your face. Unlike other treatments such as dentures, dental implants provide long-term solutions by replacing the root of the tooth which will then become the base of the crown. Dental implants also conserve the jaw bones as bones will deteriorate without the stimulation from a tooth root.

Dental implants have high success rates

The success rates of dental implants actually vary and depend on the patient’s dental care after getting the procedure. Very few may experience unexpected results or have complications, but generally, single tooth implants have a 95% success rate ten years after their placement. At Casey Dentists, we ensure our team of dental practitioners installs dental implants professionally and with a level of care that maximises the success of the procedure.

Dental implants don’t feel and look fake

You don’t want people to wonder whether you’re teeth are real or not, right? We ensure that our bespoke dental implants are natural-looking and suit our patient’s needs.  Since dental implants replace the root, they also feel more natural and will be almost indistinguishable from your real teeth.

Dental implants promote healthy teeth

Your dental practitioner will not have to sacrifice adjacent teeth to support prosthesis such as bridges. Dental bridges are widely known for replacing missing teeth, but it involves sacrificing adjacent teeth to properly balance the bridge. Dental implants make sure that good teeth are left preserved while providing support for the jaw bone.
