Dental implants Wagga for tooth loss

Are your teeth wobbly or have you lost a tooth? You need to speak to your dentist sooner rather than later and address the problem of any missing teeth.

If this is the case, here at Kooringal Dental our dentist will talk about the options that are available for replacing the extracted tooth. If your tooth has come out of its own accord at home then it is up to you to contact the dentist quickly and prevent complications in the future.

Dental implant surgery

Dental implants are small titanium screws which are placed into the bone socket of your missing tooth. You may only require one implant to address your missing teeth or you may have 4 or 6 implants to replace an arch of your teeth. For dental implant surgery to be successful it is important that you have healthy gums and sufficiently thick bone for the implant and once your dentist is happy that dental implants are suitable for you, you will be booked in for the surgery. This will be carried out within a few hours. You will be given a local anaesthetic and our dentist will be able to offer sedation techniques if necessary. This means that the surgery will be carried out with minimal discomfort. Once the surgery is complete the healing process takes between 4 and 6 months and after that you are ready to replace your missing tooth with a crown, bridge or a set of dentures depending on the number of teeth that you are replacing and your personal preferences. With dental implants you can smile with ease and happily once again.
