Dental implants are used in tooth replacement. In contrast to what many believe, dental implants are not the replacement teeth per se. They are cleverly engineered titanium screws used to support the actual tooth replacement, such as a bridge.
Simply, an implant can be likened to an artificial tooth root, placed into the jawbone where a tooth has been lost. One or more implants can be used, depending on the size of the gap and the number of missing teeth. Implants can be a good option for patients who have lost a tooth due to gum disease and injury. For some of the most comfortable dental implants Auckland has available, come to Eden Dental and see if you qualify for implants.
Are You A Candidate?
Not everyone is qualified to receive dental implants. To be an ideal candidate, you should be in relatively good health. Adequate jaw bone is necessary to support the implant, as well as healthy gum tissues free of periodontal disease.
How Can We Help You?
First, we can help determine your eligibility for the placement. Once we decide you are a candidate, we will proceed with the treatment. The process may involve sinus augmentation and ridge modification.
Our dental professionals, composed of dentists and periodontists, have the knowledge, expertise and experience to perform dental implant placement and help you achieve a full recovery. They can also advise proper care and maintenance for your new teeth.
What Can You Expect From the Procedure?
We will refer you to an oral surgeon or periodontist who will place the implant fixture into the jawbone. Once it is fully healed and integrated, you will be sent back to our dentist for the implant abutment and crown, taking two visits. The whole treatment takes around six months to complete.
