If you are unhappy with how your smile looks, and are looking for a long-term way to improve this, then dental implants in Wagga could be the treatment for you. We can provide you with high-quality implants that will look just like your natural teeth, and act like them too. This treatment is perfect for people who have gaps in their teeth, as a crown will be attached to the implant to fill in any of these gaps.
Am I eligible?
Most people who are wanting this treatment are eligible, but we will always take scans and look at your mouth to make sure of this. It is important that you have enough bone for the screw to attach to, as if you don’t this can weaken the implant and cause problems. This treatment is suitable for people who have one or more teeth missing and can have great results.
How does it work?
As with any dental treatment, we will begin by having a consultation meeting with you to make sure you are eligible. This also gives us the opportunity to explain the treatment in detail and make sure that it is right for you.
In the first surgical appointment, we will begin by opening up the gum in the problem area and exposing the bone. Your implant dentist in Wagga Wagga will then drill the screw deep into the bone, which is vital to ensuring that the implant is stable. The area will then be closed up again and left to heal for several months, this stage is important as it allows the screw to fuse to the bone, therefore improving stability.
Once the screw has healed and fused with your bone, this is when your crown can be attached. This crown is made out of porcelain, which is beneficial because of its colour and durability. The crown is fitted to the top of the screw to complete the procedure, and this is when you will really see the difference that the implant has made.

What are some advantages?
There are many advantages that come with getting this treatment, both aesthetically and medically. One of the main advantages is that having implants can help to encourage bone growth. When you have missing teeth, this weakens the bone in that area, whilst also putting your other teeth at risk.
Another great benefit of having dental implants in Wagga is how natural they look, our patients love this as other people would not be able to tell that you had them in if they didn’t know. The use of porcelain is great for aesthetics as the colour is very similar to natural teeth and can be altered if needed. Porcelain is also stain-resistant, which contributes to the long time that these implants can last.
These implants are also very easy to take care of, as all you have to do to maintain them is follow the standard oral hygiene routine. They act just like natural teeth meaning that all you need to do is brush and floss your teeth regularly and attend check-ups with our dentists to make sure there are no issues.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
