What are dental implants?
Why would I require dental implants?
Tooth loss can be caused by infection, gum disease, accident or injury. Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace one or more teeth, and prevent existing natural teeth from migrating position, which is a process that generally commences about six months after a tooth is removed. For more information on dental implants, contact us.
Who can receive dental implants?
Dental implants are the perfect solution if you have any missing teeth- even total tooth loss! The only specific requirement for dental implant treatment is that the patient has enough bone in the area of the missing tooth to anchor the implant. However, if this is not the case, bone grafts may be placed. For more information on dental implants, please contact us.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants produce unparalleled aesthetic and functional results compared to other existing treatments. They are a permanent solution to tooth loss, and do not damage the integrity of the surrounding natural teeth. That said, nothing compares to a natural tooth, and so we will only perform a tooth extraction as a last resort. To find out more about dental implants please contact us.
What are the signs of unhealthy teeth?
Discoloured or bleeding gums, chipped, cracked or discoloured teeth, bad breath, tooth and jaw pain are all indicators of poor oral health. If you suffer from any of these symptoms, please contact us to book a consultation.
When should I book dental check ups?
Generally check ups should be scheduled at least every six months. These visits allow signs of disease to be detected early and treated before they become serious. Regular professional cleans also help prevent the development of periodontal disease (gum disease). To book a dental check up, please contact us.
Why are my gums are bleeding?
Bleeding gums can be a sign of serious conditions like gingivitis and periodontal disease. If you experience swollen gums, or bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth, contact us to book an appointment.
Why have I lost a tooth?
Gum disease is a major contributor to tooth loss, but the most common cause of tooth loss in adults is tooth decay. We recommend following a healthy diet and oral hygiene plan, and visiting our clinic regularly to retain your natural teeth for life. To book a dental check up at our clinic, please contact us.
