People can experience tooth loss at any age. From the patient who lost a single tooth due to trauma to the adult who’s contemplating dentures (or already has them), we offer options in our Katoomba dental office to restore every type of tooth loss.
Dental implants are the first choice of most dentists because they replace the tooth and the root, like a smile do-over. It may promote bone stimulation to prevent shrinkage, unlike other tooth replacement options. And dental implants do not require adhesives, relines, or gooey pastes to stay in place. You brush, floss and visit your dentist just as before you received your implant.
Dental Implant Options in Katoomba, NSW
Single Dental Implants
If you’ve lost a single tooth, a single dental implant may be your best course. It is a titanium replacement root that bonds easily with bone. Your dentist implants this root, and it integrates over months to give a solid underpinning for your replacement tooth. The replacement tooth, also called a dental crown, is always designed to match your other teeth in shade and shape.
All-on-4 in Katoomba is a low-profile arch of replacement teeth fixed with four dental implants. This is ideal if you are at risk for full tooth loss, or if you have already suffered significant loss. This arch is designed to complement your facial profile and aesthetics.
If you’re tired of denture slippage, visiting the dentist for relines, or applying adhesives throughout the day, implant-supported dentures in Katoomba may be the solution you’ve been looking for. With this option, your dentist relies on four to six implant posts to secure your denture.
