What are the Benefits of Getting Dental Implants?
Choosing dental implants can benefit your dental health because the implant posts have a protective effect on your jawbone, preventing further bone loss that would naturally occur after teeth are removed. A dental implant is self-supporting so we will not need to grind down or adapt potentially healthy teeth which is the case for dental bridges and for partial dentures. Implant-supported teeth are strong and stable, eliminating concerns about loose or unstable dentures. Additionally, we take tremendous care when planning and placing dental implants, ensuring your implant supported teeth are fully functional, enabling you to comfortably eat and talk. Every implant supported tooth is constructed to provide excellent aesthetics while properly supporting your facial muscles.
Who Can Get Dental Implants?
Most people are suitable for dental implants and provided your teeth and jaws have finished developing then age isn’t a factor. Many older people have benefited tremendously from dental implant treatment, especially when replacing full dentures with implant supported teeth. When you visit us here at St Vincent’s Implant Centre, we will carefully assess your dental health and your medical health to ensure implant treatment is an appropriate choice for you.
Are Dental Implants Safe?
We take every precaution to ensure dental implant treatment is safe and comfortable for our patients. To do this, we carry out extensive diagnostic tests and every aspect of your treatment is precisely planned. This ensures each dental implant is inserted into precisely the right location, avoiding essential structures in your jawbone while ensuring an optimal outcome. We only use the highest quality dental implant components which provide proven long-term results.
