Having badly damaged or missing teeth can have a serious impact on your life. The absolute worst thing you could do is not immediately see a dentist, as these conditions can worsen if left untreated. Thanks to advancements in restorative procedures, such conditions can be remedied.
Traditionally, treatment options for those with missing teeth were limited to only bridges and dentures; but breakthroughs in dental technology have made implants more widely available with high success rate and longevity. This advanced method of replacing missing teeth is routinely performed in our practice.
Illawarra Dental Centre offers a full range of implant treatments starting from single missing teeth to full mouth rehab using the most respected implant systems in the world. Our principal dentist – Dr Minh Tran – has extensive experience and knowledge in this advanced field of dentistry. He currently holds a Master Degree in Oral Implantology (Frankfurt – Germany) and a Diplomate of International Congress of Oral Implantologists (USA).
Our practice possesses powerful diagnostic tools such as Cone Beam CT Scan and CAD-CAM technology enhancing the precision of implant placement. We also perform necessary bone and gums augmentation when required.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial teeth (made from metallic and bone-like ceramic materials) that replace a missing tooth and its root. Teeth implants are securely joined to the jaw bone, allowing them to feel and function just like normal teeth. In fact, they are considered to be one of the closest alternatives to natural teeth. Unlike crowns and partial dentures, implants do not need to rely on neighbouring teeth for support.
Here are some of the many advantages of dental implants:
- Permanent replacements: as they are fused with the jaw bone
- Improved speech: since they do not shift or move once in place
- More comfortable compared to partial or removable dentures
- Makes chewing easier without any discomfort or pain
- Results in better oral hygiene over the long term
- Lasts a lifetime with proper care
Dental implants are one of the best solutions for badly damaged or missing teeth. But you will need to first come in for an evaluation to determine if you are a suitable candidate.
