The implant

The implant replaces the function of a natural root and, properly cared for should last a lifetime. The implant, made from Titanium, fuses to the surrounding bone during the healing period following placement. This is a process called osseointegration.

Putting in dental implants

Missing a single tooth?

A single implant will support a single crown and is the ideal solution when compared to conventional alternatives. The treatment is simple and the procedures are very minor when carried out by a well trained and experienced clinician.

In some cases it is possible to remove a failed tooth, place an implant and build a tooth directly onto the implant all within a single appointment.

Several teeth missing?

A fixed implant bridge involves the placement of two or more dental implants to replace three or more missing teeth. The implants provide stability and offer the benefit of not damaging or contacting the adjacent natural teeth. A bridge is made that attaches to the implants via abutments.

Missing all of your teeth?

You only need 4-6 implants to support a bridge to replace all the missing teeth. Such a bridge will provide excellent strength, function and appearance.

Dental implants will provide you with a stable and long term solution can eliminate the pain, discomfort, instability, and bone loss that denture patients experience. Bridges can be made to feel permanent by being screwed in place, or may be removable.

A very cost-effective alternative is to have a denture that you can remove but is held very securely by two implants and press-stud like attachments.

Oral Problems that Dental Implants Can Help

TMJ Disorder

TMJ disorder is usually based on your joint issues, wherein some of the symptoms include pain in the jaw, face, neck, and ear while talking, chewing, or even when using your teeth to bite. The treatment that your dentist will recommend will depend on the severity of the pain and disorder. If stress is causing it, then anti-anxiety medication may be prescribed, or a mouthpiece may be prescribed if the cause if clenching or grinding. You dentist might refer you to a specialist if it’s due to a certain medical condition.

But if it’s because of missing teeth and if it’s been like that for a long time, then your jaw can become misaligned. Replacing missing teeth with a dental implant, like dentures can help restore the alignment of your jaw. If your jaw bone is too soft or thin, then a bone graft procedure may be needed to help support the dental implant.

Gum Disease

There are different types of gum infection but one disease that is severe is Periodontitis, which can eventually lead to tooth loss and other more serious health complications. If left untreated, it can destroy the bone that is supporting the teeth.

Now, if gum disease has already taken over your tooth or teeth for that matter, your dentist will recommend dental implants, wherein the lost tooth will be replaced. But in order for the dental implant to successfully be implanted, your gums should be healthy, that’s why there will be some instances that the procedure might be rescheduled at a later date.

Worry not because the dentures that we use for replacement will always be a tooth that will look like a natural tooth. At our Dental Implant Cairns office, we make sure to only use implants that look like natural teeth to used to replace your lost teeth.
