Have you lost a tooth, or multiple teeth, and want to find an option to replace it in Townsville that’s making life difficult? If you want to be able to speak, smile and chew with ease, dental implants Townsville could be the right solution for you. You are worthy of a great smile that not only looks great, but functions naturally, and makes you feel confident from within.
Our dentists in Townsville are experienced in replacing teeth with natural looking dental implants. Dental implants are surgical-grade root devices that support permanent tooth prosthetics to replace missing teeth. These artificial roots are anchored in the bone, beneath the gums, where they become fused with the jaw. A crown is mounted on top of the implant for a long-lasting and natural looking smile.
Many dentists and patients prefer dental implants, as they offer the same function as natural teeth, and can also help prevent bone atrophy in the jaw. Dental implants may be used to replace a single missing, or damaged tooth, or to restore an entire smile.
The dental implant is fitted into the jawbone in a minor operation. You will usually be given an anesthetic so that you don’t feel any pain during the surgery. After a few months, once the bone grows around the dental implant and the bone is stable, the dentist will create a foundation for the new tooth, or teeth.
The procedure itself takes 1 to 2 hours, and the healing time is 3 to 6 months.
Dental implants are the modern treatment method for replacing badly damaged or missing teeth. Whether in terms of function, durability, or aesthetics, it’s hard to find a restorative treatment that can outperform dental implants. However, as with any treatment, dental implants are not for everyone. If dental implants won’t work for you, there are other teeth-replacement options that you may want to consider, including dentures, or a dental bridge.

Dental implants can last a long time when they are properly maintained with good oral hygiene at home, and regular maintenance with your dental health care provider. Continuing, or starting, a daily routine of brushing and flossing, as well as making sensible lifestyle choices, is a brilliant way to maintain your overall health.
The longevity of your dental implant will depend on a number of factors, ranging from your lifestyle choices, to your long-term commitment to oral hygiene. While dental implant maintenance is not difficult, it is extremely important.
