Dental Implants in Hervey Bay

smiling person with beautiful teethBefore the development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Hervey Bay Dental offers dental implants, which are synthetic structures placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. These tooth replacements are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, these devices can be used to attach dentures.

What Are Some Benefits?

These tooth replacements are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material, like metal or ceramic.

Dental implants could greatly improve your quality of life. With these devices, you’ll never have to worry about biting into certain foods or the appearance of your smile. They look and feel great – and you will too!


What to Expect

Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place it in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth.

During the required surgery, patients are administered anaesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure.

Like any restoration, dental implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.

Am I a Candidate?

Not everyone is a candidate for this tooth replacement option, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.
