What is a good option for tooth replacement?
If you have lost a tooth, a dental implant in our Alderley, QLD dental clinic is a great option because it replaces the whole tooth, including the tooth root, as well.
A dental implant is a thin post implanted in your gum. This post is meant to bond with your jawbone over a period of months. When fusing is complete, you are ready for your restoration tooth. Because this is a complete replacement, you may be spared jawbone shrinkage, which can happen when you lose a tooth, and there is no root to keep the bone viable. Your implant post is your new tooth root.
At Alderley Dental, we take special care to colour your new tooth replacement to match your surrounding teeth as well.
If you have full tooth loss or many missing teeth, you may also benefit from an implant-supported denture or stabilised bridge. Ideally, a few dental implants should be enough to support a bridge or denture.
It is essential to take care of your implants by brushing and flossing daily and making regular appointments for dental check-ups and cleans in our Alderley, QLD dental clinic.
