Need implants to replace missing, broken teeth? 

I see many people for Cooroy and surrounding areas and Noosa who are want to know more about dental implants so I have written this to help you understand what they are all about.

If your dentures are loose or you can’t bite into an apple… a steak… or any of your favourite foods because they give you a problem then implants could be the answer. Implants can lock your dentures firmly in place… rock solid… so you never have those problems again. You can eat what you like whenever you like, no problems!

And implants are great to replace missing teeth too! If you are missing one or more teeth, been told you need a crown or have a tooth that just doesn’t look right then dental implants may be the answer for you! Implants are the simple and easy way to replace missing or problem teeth so that they look natural and work just like nature intended... and they don’t weaken or rely on neighbouring teeth.

What is an implant? 

A dental implant is an artificial tooth “root” used to support an artificial tooth or group of teeth.
Almost all dental implants are placed in the jaw bone and can be used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. A typical implant consists of a titanium screw made out of commercially pure titanium which is screwed or cemented once in place.

After allowing time (around 6 weeks) for the bone around the implant to bond with the implant, a tooth or teeth can be placed on the implant or your dentures locked into place. 
Naturally the amount of time required to place an implant and for it to bond with the bone will vary depending on the quality and quantity of the bone in which it is placed and the difficulty of the individual situation.
The best way to find out whether implants are right for you is to phone and arrange a time to meet me and my team. I can see what shape your mouth and gums are in, explain your options and exactly how I’ll do the implants. 

Naturally I’ll tell you the costs involved and then you can decide what you want to do… you won’t be put under any pressure. Rest assured, you’ll feel relaxed comfortable and confident.
