The basics of implant dentistry
Dental implants are becoming an increasing popular treatment for replacing missing teeth
Implant dentistry offers a more stable and permanent fix to missing teeth that will look and feel like natural teeth. Here at Southside Dental Implants in Sunnybank we will walk you through every step of the dental implant process to determine what the best treatment for you is.
Are dental implants right for me?
If you are missing one or more of your teeth and are in good health, you may be a suitable candidate for dental implants. Dental implants can be a better solution to undergoing crown or bridge work, because they offer a more permanent solution to your missing teeth. The benefits of dental implants include:
- Natural looking prosthetic teeth
- Implants are fixed into your mouth which can provide you with better support
- Chewing power is similar to that of your natural teeth as your implants can feel just like your natural teeth
- Durability – implants are made from titanium and can last decades with proper care
When you visit Southside Dental Implants located in the McCullough Dental Centre Dr Kassim will assess your oral health and determine if you have adequate jawbone structure for the implant process. If you do not have adequate jawbone structure, Dr Kassim is qualified to perform a bone augmentation or bone grafting depending on whichever procedure you need.
