Replacing Missing Teeth With The Latest Dental Implant Technology Are you fighting with unstable or loose dentures? Do you have a few missing teeth that are
affecting your self-esteem? At Argyle Street Family Dental in Parramatta, we are dedicated to helping our patients achieve total oral health, and this includes restoring missing teeth! Gaps left behind by missing teeth can cause an array of concerns such as:
- Heightened risk of decay and gum disease due to uneven cleaning surface
- Shifting teeth in an attempt to close the gap resulting in crooked or misaligned teeth
- Loss of stimulation to the jawbone which results in bone loss and eventually further tooth loss
Counteract these effects of a lost tooth with a strong, stable and long-lasting solution…
Dental implants are an innovative treatment that utilises small titanium screws that are biocompatible with your jawbone material. These devices are surgically placed at the site of tooth loss. Over a period of months the jawbone gradually heals around the screw, effectively fusing with it to create a powerful foundation for your new tooth. Once this process is complete we are able to anchor your restoration such as a crown, bridge or denture to the implant for a fully functional restoration!
Your comfort will be improved, allowing you to eat, laugh, talk and smile without any uncertainties.
Are Dental Implants Painful?
The answer to this question is a resounding no! The procedure to place dental implants is performed under local anesthesia. This means that you’re completely numb during the entire procedure, and will not feel a thing.
