Do you have missing teeth? Dental implants can fill the gap in your smile and your oral health…
Are you missing one or more of your adult teeth? Unfortunately, once we lose our adult teeth we are unable to naturally grow replacements. Innovations in dentistry have led to the creation of dental implants, a restorative treatment that completely replaces your missing tooth from the root up.
How are dental implants the ‘next best thing’ to a real tooth?
Nothing is better than a real tooth; that is why every dentist will always stress the necessity of prevention and strict oral hygiene to ensure your teeth are strong, sturdy and resistant to decay and loss. However, tooth loss can be inevitable as we get older due to ageing or trauma; that is why the next best thing to a natural tooth was created – dental implants. A dental implant is a small titanium rod inserted in the bone where the tooth was extracted. This acts as the ‘tooth root’. After this has fused with the jawbone, a restorative prosthetic tooth can be placed over the top to restore that appearance and function of your tooth.
At McCullough Dental Centre our dental implants are made of titanium to heighten the chance of ossteointegration…
The success of the dental implant relies on its ability to ossteointegrate with the natural tissue and bone. This process occurs because the titanium is a biocompatible material. Once the titanium rod has ossteointegrated the implant will become a permanent fixture inside the mouth. At McCullough Dental Centre we have an implant centre within our Sunnybank location so that we can perform our dental implant procedures with precision and ease.
