Single Dental Implants
Have you considered dental implants in Katoomba, NSW?
If you have missing teeth, you might find eating and speaking a bit of a challenge. You may find yourself avoiding certain foods because chewing is difficult. You might also feel self-conscious about the empty space in your mouth, so you find yourself avoiding social occasions.
Dental implants are an ideal treatment for many people who are missing one or more teeth.
At Katoomba Dental Centre, we have several dentists who can offer dental implants to patients in all locations, including Leura, Wentworth Falls, Hazelbrook, Lawson, Blackheath, Mt Victoria, Lithgow, Springwood, Faulconbridge and Blaxland.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible titanium that are inserted into the jawbone to take the place of a natural root that is missing. A dental crown is attached on top of the implant, giving the restoration the look and function of a natural tooth. Dental implant techniques can replace one or several missing teeth. In some patients, an entire set of artificial teeth can be secured on dental implants.
Learn Whether Dental Implants Are Right for You with a Complimentary Consultation
Your dentist provides a free consultation because we want everyone to have the opportunity to explore implants as a viable option. This consultation is an obligation free appointment with our principal dentist to help answer questions and assess whether or not you would be a suitable candidate for any implant-based treatments.
We discuss all findings with you, talk to you about your smile goals, and examine your oral health. These factors determine whether dental implants are a viable option for you.
If they are, we plan your surgery!
The Benefits of Dental Implants in 2780
Losing one or more teeth not only creates a gap in your smile that can be embarrassing, but it also affects your ability to chew properly. Many times, people with missing teeth no longer get proper nutrition because they avoid many of their favourite healthy foods.
In addition, tooth loss can lead to bone loss in the jaw. This can ultimately affect a person’s appearance as the bone loss can change the lower face, giving it a sunken look.
Like natural teeth, dental implants are cleaned with dental floss, brushing with regular toothpaste and routine check-ups with your Katoomba, NSW dentist.
As with natural teeth, it’s important to talk to your dentist if you grind and clench your teeth (bruxism). Your dentist can create a custom nightguard to protect your teeth and your dental implants. And remember to always keep your preventive dentistry appointments—even full-mouth restorations cannot prevent gum disease. It is routine dentistry and excellent at-home care that keeps your gums healthy.
