Tooth loss can affect anyone at any stage of their life. Although tooth loss mainly occurs as a result of poor oral hygiene, tooth decay or gum disease, sometimes you may sustain an injury to your face, which could result in the loss of a tooth or even multiple teeth. We associate tooth loss with old age; however, this is not always the case. If you can maintain good dental hygiene, and if you visit your dentist regularly, then you can prevent dental issues from becoming complicated by having them treated at the onset.
Maintaining good dental health is essential in maintaining your natural teeth for life, and here at Kooringal Dental, we recommend that you visit our dentist at least once every six months. It is important to undergo regular assessments of your teeth and gums and professional cleanings to prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar in your mouth. If you have lost a tooth or you are missing multiple teeth, either as a result of poor hygiene or because you have been in an accident then you need to speak to our team here at Kooringal dental to find out about tooth replacement.
The popularity and success of dental implants
There are different options for replacing missing teeth depending on your personal preferences and your dental requirements. Here at Kooringal Dental, we highly recommend dental implants Wagga for replacing your missing teeth. Dental implants Wagga can provide a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth, and with much research and development in this field, dental implants are now the gold standard in tooth replacement therapy worldwide.
Over the last few decades, dental implants Wagga have seen a surge in popularity among dentists and patients alike. It is an invasive treatment option that requires many months to complete; however, with good oral hygiene and regular checkups with our dentist, a dental implant can last throughout your life. A dental implant provides a strong, secure and aesthetically pleasing option for tooth replacement in comparison to temporary or removable options. Dental implants work by replacing the root of your missing tooth, whereas temporary or removable tooth replacement options sit on your gums and, therefore, do not provide the comfort, security or convenience which you can achieve with dental implants.
Dental implants are small titanium screws and they are inserted directly into the bone socket of your missing tooth. Depending on the location of your missing teeth, you may be able to have one or a few dental implants to help replace your missing teeth. These implants take approximately 12 weeks to be securely embedded into your jawbone. Then your choice of tooth replacement, either a crown, bridge or full set of dentures can be attached to the dental implant to provide a secure, permanent and attractive replacement for your missing tooth or teeth.
