If you are missing one or more teeth and want a more permanent and natural-looking tooth replacement solution than dentures or bridges, then dental implants may be the right choice for you.
Dental Implants Gold Coast
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jawbone to act as a replacement for tooth roots. During the healing process, the jawbone fuses to each titanium post, creating an extremely stable foundation for a natural-looking artificial tooth. Dental implants are available in many types and sizes to fit each patient’s specific needs.
How long do dental implants last
For the vast majority of cases – 90% – they last for more than 10 years. Much like your own, natural teeth, dental implants require maintenance and care. We recommend you brush and floss your teeth as normal twice a day, making sure you cover all sides of the implant as well. It is particularly important to clean your teeth after meals.Procedure
Dental Implants Procedure
The procedure itself takes roughly one to two hours for most cases. Despite what you may have heard, most people who undergo dental implant surgery report minimal discomfort and nearly non-existent pain.
Dental Implants Healing Process
The healing process depends on a variety of factors, such as individual healing rate and oral care habits, but in most cases, it should be completed in a period somewhere between three to six months.
