A dental implant is the next best thing to a natural tooth…
One of the most significant innovations in modern dentistry has been the development and insertion of dental implants. Dental implants are a permanent and ideal solution in the replacement of one or several missing teeth.
This treatment uses a titanium screw (implant) as a substitute for the missing tooth root. At Smile Dynamics we take advantage of this fantastic new technology to help those suffering the debilitating effects of missing teeth.
Missing teeth can leave your mouth and jaw open to oral health risks…
An adult has on average thirty-two permanent adult teeth (including wisdom teeth), all of which are permanent and once they fall out they cannot be replaced naturally. Missing teeth can affect your oral health and overall well-being. Some long term problems are:
- Tooth migration
- Bone reabsorption of the jaw
- Gum recession
- Less than appealing smile
- Disrupted bite
- Low self esteem
- Poor oral hygiene
- Periodontal disease
- Hinder your speech and ability to eat
- Tooth decay
- Loss of other teeth
At Smile Dynamics in Wahroonga we offer a wide variety of prosthetic appliances and dental implant restorations so you can benefit from a healthy, full and functional smile:
- Single tooth implants
- Implant supported bridges
- Implant retained dentures
- Implant over-dentures
- All-On-4™/Full mouth rehabilitation
Dental Implants can change your life but they are not without their risks…
Dental implants look, feel and function just like your natural teeth and may even last for life but at Smile Dynamics in East Wahroonga we want you to have all the facts before you undergo any dental surgery or treatment.
Potential problems such as infection, fractured implants, and damage to surrounding tissue and teeth, insufficient bone mass, incorrect positioning, overloading and reaction to anaesthesia and even incompatibility with the titanium (allergic reaction).
Here at Smile Dynamics in East Wahroonga we will walk you through the whole process and if you are an obvious patient at risk of developing any of these problems we will not recommend this treatment for you.
