Advantages of dental implants Wagga highlighted by our team

If you are like 1 in 7 dental patients, you will have at least one missing tooth in your mouth. And if it is located near the front, it is likely you will want a more permanent solution than a bridge.

Luckily, there is such an option available in the majority of dental surgeries in the form of oral implants.

Our team at Kooringal Dental have been fitting oral implants or dental implants Wagga for many years now and can guide you through the process, from the consultation to the aftercare, with confidence, care and expertise.

So, what are some of the main advantages of having dental implants Wagga fitted? Read on to find out.

They feel natural

Oral implants are designed to mimic the appearance and function of natural teeth, so they can help you maintain a natural-looking smile.

Not only that, but many people who have had dental implants Wagga fitted have stated that, after a few years, they may actually forget which one of their teeth is supported by an implant! So, without the dental glue or the removal of the teeth, they can become so integrated into your mouth that you won’t be able to tell them apart from your natural teeth!

They last longer!

Unlike dentures or bridges, which may need to be adjusted or replaced over time, implants are designed to be permanent fixtures in your mouth.

As they fuse to your jawbone, it is very hard for them to come loose, barring an injury or extensive gum disease (which extends to erode the jaw). So, with correct care, you can expect your oral implants to last up to and over 15 years.

Prevent a gaunt appearance

When a tooth is missing, the jawbone in that area can begin to deteriorate. All oral implants are anchored in the jawbone, which helps to stimulate the bone and preserve its structure.

This will help to prevent the sunken appearance that many people get after they have lost several teeth.

Improved speech

Oral implants allow you to speak and eat without the worry of your teeth shifting or falling out, as can happen with other restoratives.

Indeed, you would be surprised at how much the stability and position of your teeth impact the way you talk. So, when you have implants fitted, you may notice that your speech and inflexion improve, as there are no gaps, no misalignments and no movement, helping you to speak with better clarity.

Easy care

Oral implants do not require special cleaning solutions or techniques and can be cared for just like natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing.

Of course, you will have to see our team at Kooringal Dental every 6 months to ensure that your gums are in good health, as gum disease can cause oral implants to fall out prematurely.

Can support bridges or dentures

When multiple teeth need to be replaced, an individual implant for each missing tooth could be an option, or in some cases, a few implants could support a bridge which replaces more than one missing tooth. So, they are versatile and can help to secure larger dental structures in your mouth.


All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
