A dental implant can be the perfect solution to fix a broken smile.
At Epping High Dental, we offer expert implant therapy and other restorative dentistry across the Wollert area. Implants are a permanent restorative dental solution.
How Tooth Implants Work?
It involves attaching a replacement tooth by surgically placing a small metal screw into the jawbone. This screw acts as the root and is fitted with a porcelain or ceramic tooth. Implants can also be used to support dental bridge work or hold dentures in place.
Once in place, implants are indistinguishable from your natural teeth and just as strong.
Dental Implants: The Procedure
Just like with most dental procedures, not everyone meets the criteria and a dentist will need to assess your situation to determine whether dental implants are right for you. To be a viable candidate, you need to have good oral health. This means treating any visible decay or gum disease before undergoing the implant procedure.
If you’re a smoker, this can affect the healing process, so it’s important that you do not smoke for some time before and after the implant procedure.
Cost is another consideration for many people, as implants can be expensive. If money is a concern, we can work with you to organise a flexible payment plan.
