Dental implants have revolutionised teeth replacement. Before dental implants became available, the only options were dentures and bridges, both of which have considerations that patients should think about before getting them. For instance, dentures can slip, and bridges require that much of the tooth is ground away. Not so with dental implants.
The ideal candidate for a dental implant in Chatswood is someone with healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant. If the jawbone has deteriorated or is unable to support the implant, an oral surgeon can perform a bone graft.
The actual dental implant is a small titanium post. The implant is surgically positioned into the jawbone. Once the implant has fused to the bone, a process that takes several months, the dentist can fit a crown. A dental implant in Chatswood is extremely stable, and they can also be used to position a denture. Because the denture is mounted on multiple implants, it will not slip or become dislodged. Implants help secure dentures, as well as individual crowns. They feel far more comfortable and natural than bridges or dentures.
Dental implants, when placed by Toothsome Periodontics, have a very high success rate. The vast majority of procedures are a success, replacing a gap with a functional, comfortable facsimile.
