What are dental implants?

Dental implants are one of the safest and most reliable solutions to missing teeth. They’re commonly made of a titanium frame that’s screwed into your jawbone to replace the root of your missing tooth so that an artificial tooth can be securely installed.

Once they’re in place, you can eat and speak comfortably in the knowledge that there’s no risk of your artificial tooth falling out.

What Is The Procedure For Dental Implants?

A dental implant is usually carried out over two separate procedures. The first procedure will be to fit the implant into your jawbone, while the second will be carried out 4-8 months later to fit your brand new permanent tooth over the implant.

Do I need dental implants?

If you have a broken, severely cracked or missing tooth, a loose bridge or an infected tooth that needs to be removed, a dental implant could be the solution to providing you with that perfect smile.

Dental implants are also a great option for patients who struggle with loose dentures and partials, which can be prone to falling out if they don’t fit correctly.

Dental implants are also worth considering if you have a sunken facial appearance, as your jawline will be stimulated when you chew.

They’ll look and feel exactly like your natural teeth, so if you’re sick of dealing with messy denture adhesives and are looking for a more convenient option, we can consult with you on the best treatment option for you, including dental implants.

Are Dental Implants Obvious?

As mentioned above, dental implants look like your natural teeth. You may speak with people who have had dental implants every single day without even realising. Dentistry and orthodontics have made massive strides in recent decades – this means implants of all kinds can be virtually undetectable.

With a dental implant, your smile can be complete once again, all without anybody noticing anything was ever amiss. Advances in the process have made it so that your implant will fit perfectly alongside (and match) the rest of your teeth.

Does Getting a Dental Implant Hurt?

Implant procedures use an anaesthetic to ensure you do not feel any pain during the operation. After the procedure, there will usually be some level of discomfort. This varies from person to person, but it can usually be mediated by a combination of cold packs and general pain medication.

This discomfort typically goes away after a few days (sometimes a week), but this can also depend upon the complexity, and the severity, of your implant. Regardless, most people return to work the day after their dental implant surgery – the procedures should not get in the way of resuming your life.

To reduce the pain further, we heavily recommend you stick to softer foods for a few days. This helps reduce pressure on your jaw while it heals.

Are Dental Implants Worth it?

At Albany Dental, we have worked tirelessly alongside our fellow specialists to provide affordable dental implants Gosford residents can rely on, though costs often vary based on the exact procedure you have. That being said, the value of a complete smile cannot be understated – especially as implants last much longer than most other alternatives with proper care.

Dental implants can also have additional health benefits. They provide further support to the jaw bone and the face, preventing further degradation from a missing tooth (or teeth). Once your implants settle, you will have a stronger mouth and will be able to once again eat and laugh with equal confidence.
