Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant is often the best thing for your oral health. At Excellence in Dentistry we will always address a missing tooth with a holistic approach. Our skilled dentists at our Wickham Terrace practice will spend time explaining the procedure and assessing your teeth.
The connection between the mouth and the body
Dr Sally Farhandi believes that the health of the body is intrinsically connected to your oral health. Even loss of one single tooth will effect your body adversely such as:-
- Teeth can collapse into a gap from a missing tooth
- There can be overeruption of the tooth from the opposing jaw
- There can be a massive change in bite and chewing pattern, causing pressure on joint of your jaw
We will spend time assessing your oral health to identify the cause of your tooth loss before proceeding to the treatment. This assessment can help to ensure that your tooth loss is confined to just the one tooth.
Receiving a single tooth replacement
Replacing a single missing tooth starts with placing a dental implant. This procedure involves surgically placing a biocompatible titanium or ceramic screw into your jawbone. Once your jawbone has healed around the implant a prosthetic tooth will be placed.
It can take up to six months for your jaw to heal around the dental implant.
Fixing a dental crown to your implant
Once your implant has healed our dental team will place a ceramic crown over it. This crown will act and look as the surrounding teeth do. This crown can restore the appearance of your smile, in addition to the function of your bite.
Why you should replace a missing tooth
Replacing a missing tooth does more for you than restore the appearance of your smile.
- It brings balance and equilibrium to the mouth environment
- It prevents bone loss
- It enables you to chew normally
- It regains your confidence to smile
In addition to these concerns, tooth loss can also make you feel self-conscious about smiling. A dental implant with an implant supported crown can help to prevent these concerns and restore your smile.
Our Brisbane dentists are highly experienced in the dental implant procedure and we’ll make you feel comfortable throughout the dental implant process at our comfortable Wickham Terrace dental practice.
