Will Dental Implants Help You?

If you have lost one, some or all of your teeth you may be considering dental implants as part of your oral rehabilitation.  Our experts at Normanhurst Dental would like to offer you some information about dental implants to help you make your decision.

Dining well or eating a simple meal is central to much of our family and social interaction. Chewing correctly is essential for digestion and bodily health and, of course, for enjoyment of delicious food.

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental Implants at Normanhurst Dental

A dental implant is often the best solution for health and comfort.

A dental implant is a base which when implanted into the jawbone acts as an artificial root.  When a dental procedure like a crown, bridge or dentures is carried out missing teeth can be replaced.

A dental implant is made from a strong, non-reactive, bio-compatible substance.  It is submerged in the jaw and then the site is allowed to heal.  When it is stable in the gum a small metal post can then be used to anchor an artificial tooth.

The material of the jawbone assimilates the implant and a very strong and durable bond is formed.  This process is known as osseointegration and can take several months.

What Are The Benefits of Dental Implants?

Undertaking dental implants at our Normanhurst Dental surgery will result in improved aesthetics, more efficient function and enhanced quality of life within a few weeks of having the procedure.  Your confidence will improve, your enjoyment of food will increase and you will be more comfortable.

The process of having dental implants has many advantages for health, lifestyle and appearance:

  • Adjacent, existing healthy teeth remain undamaged.
  • A dental implant helps to prevent bone loss through stabilising the existing structure and minimising invasive procedures.
  • Implants can help to brace existing loose dentures by creating a stable anchor.
  • Implants can replace loose dentures altogether by fixed bridges.
  • The procedure has a very high success rate of up to 98% and is dependent on factors such as dental hygiene, general health and lifestyle.
  • It is the closest thing to a natural tooth that your dentist can provide.
  • A dental implant feels natural and secure to give you confidence.
  • Dental implants can be used to provide more oral stability if there is existing extensive bone loss.
  • Implants can be used if adjacent teeth are missing as a means to anchor a fixed bridge.
