Are missing teeth making you feel self-conscious or keeping you from eating comfortably?
Our dental implants in Townsville offer the most advanced treatment for replacing missing teeth and restoring your mouth functionality.
Dental implants for front teeth and back teeth can allow you to benefit from a brand-new tooth that looks and feels real. We provide both single and multiple tooth implants which looks similar to your natural teeth.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that are surgically placed into the jaw. Implants are made from bio compatible material which allows them to fuse with the jaw bone.
Over time, the bone grows around the implant, making them a permanent fixture in the mouth. A porcelain tooth (crown) is then attached to the implant to fill in the gap left by the missing tooth.
Before the treatment, our dentists will examine your mouth to ensure that you’re a suitable patient for dental implant surgery. This will be dependent on how healthy your gums are and if you have sufficient jaw bone to hold the implant.
Our dental implants in Townsville are placed in stages over a few months (with multiple appointments required).
First, you’re required to have x-rays to give our dentists a clear picture of where to place the implants. The surgery to integrate the implants generally takes one hour per implant.
Next, you’ll be required to wait a few months while the bone grows around the implant. This can vary between 3 to 9 months, but we recommend regular check-ups so that your dentist can monitor progress. The last step involves placing the dental crowns.
Many patients have problems with unstable dentures. Dental implants can be used to stabilise or replace 4 front teeth dentures.
They can be used either to support full dentures or as an alternative to oral adhesives. This treatment is a preferred alternative for some patients.
Our dental implants in Townsville are a preferred treatment for a number of reasons:
Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime, but poor oral hygiene habits could cause them to fail if bacteria or infection builds up in the gum.
