Benefits of Dental Implants
While there are multiple options for replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution available that replaces both your tooth and your root.
Not only do missing teeth make us self conscious about our smile, they promote shifting. Shifting can lead to bite misalignment, and potential further tooth loss – which is the last thing we want for our patients!
Edentulous bite, or what’s most commonly referred to as “Shrinking jaw” is when teeth are missing, and you naturally lose bone from your jaw over time, which can lead to a prematurely aged appearance. One of the best and most unknown benefits of dental implants is that they can reduce this bone loss by stimulating your jawbone.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth, and we provide the highest quality of treatment throughout the process. We want your implants to last a lifetime, so our dentists take great care throughout the multistage process of getting dental implants.
At Tumut Dental, our expert dentists will guide you through the process and personalise your treatment to meet your needs.
The first step includes a dental exam to determine if dental implants are the right thing for your needs.
Once dental implants are decided as the most appropriate treatment, the next step is to remove, replace, or repair any damaged dental structures.
This is where the fun starts! Your dentist will now create your dental impressions to prepare for insertion.
Over the next 2-6 months, your implant/s will fuse to the jawbone and become a permanent part of your smile.
Finally, after your implants have successfully fused, you will return to Tumut Dental for the final placement of your bridge or partial implant.
