Why Choose Dental Implants?
The long-lasting solution for tooth loss
Dental implants are a long-lasting, healthy solution for tooth loss. Dental implants replace the whole tooth and provide support and stability for your jaw and surrounding teeth. Also, the dental implant is a permanent artificial tooth root for an implant crown, bridge or denture. An implant crown will last around 10 to 15 years depending on your diet and lifestyle.
It is necessary, after any restorative dental work, that you ensure you visit the dentist regularly. This allows your dentist to ensure your general dental health and the condition of your restoration.
Implant-support bridges and dentures
A dental bridge is usually one or more artificial teeth attached to two dental crowns. An implant-supported bridge means that instead of two teeth being shaved down and prepared for dental crowns, dental implants are used. This is better for your jaw and your remaining teeth.
There are a number of benefits of an implant-supported denture over non-implant-supported denture:
- Implant-supported dentures don’t become loose or wobbly
- Because implant-supported dentures aren’t glued to the roof of your mouth you won’t lose any taste sensation
Dental implants and your oral health
Dental implants help to maintain your optimal oral health by replacing the whole tooth.
Whether you need one tooth replaced or all of your teeth replaced, the team at Southside Dental Implants in Sunnybank can help you. Our principle dentist Dr Burhaan Kassim is also qualified to perform bone augmentation and bone grafts; these are—usually—only necessary when there is insufficient bone to place the dental implant.
