Fitting dental implants requires 3x Mooloolaba dentist appointments
The dental implant dentist, at the initial consultation, will take take X-rays to make sure there is sufficient bone to hold a tooth implant in the area required.
The partial or full dental implant, called a fixture, is placed into your jaw, by an Oral Surgeon. At the same dentist appointment, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you to function and look normal. The tooth implant will need normally three months to integrate with the jaw-bone before the impression for the new crown can be taken.
The new crown is placed and screwed into the partial or full implant that is now attached to your jaw bone. The end result will be a new tooth that functions just like a natural tooth. This new tooth implant has to be maintained with normal dental hygiene to keep the gum around it clean and healthy.
One of the most popular dental treatments involving dental implants is to incorporate two of them, one each side, into a lower denture, whereby the denture attaches to the implant. Denture implants greatly improve the retention and function of a lower denture.
