When you lose a natural tooth, the complications are more than just cosmetic. Chewing becomes painful and when adjacent teeth start shifting into the gap, tooth decay and periodontal problems can occur. Don’t compromise your dental health: call Southlands Smile Clinic to find out more about our Dental Implants.
A Dental Implant is a small titanium post surgically placed into your jawbone to act as a substitute root. The titanium integrates easily with the surrounding bone tissue, allowing it to anchor the replacement tooth.
Placing Dental Implants is generally a two-step process. During the first visit, the Implant is surgically placed in your jawbone after your dentist thoroughly numbs the area. You will then be fitted with temporary dentures until your second appointment, three to six months later, by then the implant will have thoroughly integrated with the bone tissue. During the second appointment, a replacement tooth, known as a pontic, will be placed on the implant to restore function to your smile.
With proper care, good oral hygiene, and routine dental visits, Dental Implants will look, feel, and function just like natural teeth for years to come. Our implant systems are made by trusted, top quality manufacturers, so your restored smile will be first-rate.
Southlands Smile Clinic Dental Implants will allow you to enjoy your smile once again. Call us today to find out more.
