Life is too short to spend it hiding your smile or suffering from tooth pain. Thanks to the latest advancements in modern dentistry and our highly trained and skilled dentists, you can now live pain-free and with a completely restored smile.
Dental implants have changed the world of dentistry and are rapidly replacing dentures as the preferred way to replace missing teeth. They’re the first fixed dental appliance that function as though they’re natural teeth and allow the user to eat, smile, talk, laugh, play, sleep, breathe and act as if they were real. Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing or unhealthy teeth and are an extremely versatile dental appliance, being able to replace as little as one tooth or a full arch. On top of the convenience of being permanent and the many associated health benefits, dental implants (if cared for properly) can last a lifetime!
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a strong, long lasting, natural looking replacement for missing teeth. Becoming an increasingly popular alternative to dentures due to their permanency, dental implants are a fixed solution, that look and function as though they’re real teeth. Implants are permanently secured into the jaw to replace missing, damaged or jeopardised teeth to not only fill the gap or replace decayed teeth, but to prevent shrinkage of the jaw bone as well. Dental implants will not only enhance or restore a patients smile, but they also provide facial support, stability and a number of health benefits.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants act as an artificial tooth root, and once positioned securely into the jaw, a false, natural looking tooth can be mounted onto it. Dental implants are metal posts (usually made of titanium, which is what we use at our Perth clinic) that are surgically positioned beneath the gums and into the jawbone, allowing it to fuse with the natural bone and create a strong, sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Implants are extremely versatile and can be used to replace an individual tooth or for a denture that contains multiple teeth.
