There are many reasons why people can have missing teeth and it’s not just poor oral hygiene. Of course, eating too many sweets and not brushing and flossing regularly will certainly play a part, the causes of gaps in your smile are multifarious. Smoking, medication and illnesses such as diabetes are some of the other reasons that you may have missing teeth, not to mention accidents incurred playing sports, for example! Whatever the reasons for you having missing teeth, Kooringal Dental can help you with dental implants Wagga if you are suitable for this amazing treatment option.
The low-down on dental implants
Dental implants Wagga may not be something you are familiar with and yet, they are a convenient and reliable solution to replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants consist of metal screws that are attached to your jawbone, where your teeth have been lost. The screws are fixed in place when your body’s tissues fuse with them. This happens easily as the screws are made from titanium, which lends itself well to this process. Once the screws are in place, we then attach your replacement teeth of crowns, bridges or dentures, depending on how many teeth you need to replace. Don’t worry, though! While you are waiting for the screws to become fused with your gums, we will attach temporary replacement teeth to them.
Why should I consider having dental implants?
Although every patient’s needs will be different, if dental implants are recommended to you then there are a multitude of reasons to get excited! Firstly, dental implants Wagga offer security and peace of mind, as once your replacement teeth are attached to the screws, they shouldn’t be going anywhere. This means that you can eat and drink as normal and you won’t have to avoid hard or chewy foods – throw another steak on the BBQ!
Another benefit of choosing implants is the fact that they are easy to maintain. All you need to do to take care of your implants is to brush and floss regularly, as well as come and see us for your routine dental check-ups. We will clean them up using AIRFLOW – an alternative treatment to traditional scaling that is more comfortable and has great results!
If you’re looking for a discreet solution to replacing your teeth, dental implants are also a good choice because when you are chatting or smiling, nobody should realise that you don’t have a full set of natural teeth. Replacement teeth are always made to complement any remaining natural teeth that you have, but they also shouldn’t loosen when you are talking or nattering, so you can feel more relaxed about your smile!
