If you’ve got lost or missing teeth, Pambula Village Dental Practice may use dental implants to replace them. Not only will your smile immeasurably improve but you’ll enjoy a better quality of life too.
The implant itself is an artificial tooth root (titanium screw) integrated into your jawbone to hold a replacement tooth, crown or bridge in place.
Implants are highly successful and offer a multitude of benefits. They are permanently anchored into the jawbone, so you can confidently eat, speak and laugh without fearing your replacement tooth will fall out. They are colour matched to replicate the natural appearance and lustre of existing teeth and are very durable and long-lasting.
The placement of the implant is usually done whilst you are awake in the dental chair under local anaesthetic, just like normal dentistry. In some complicated cases general anaesthesia may be necessary.
We will assess and refer patients for implants to a local specialist for the initial stage of the process - the titanium screw placement - and then complete the treatment in-house at Pambula Village Dental Practice with the final attachment of the crown.
It can take a few weeks or months to finish the implant case from beginning to end.
