Dental Implants in Toowoomba
Oral experts group
Strength & Functionality
At Oral Experts Group in Toowoomba we can provide a strong and functional solution for replacing a missing tooth, or creating a support for bridges, crowns and other dental prostheses, with dental implants.
A dental implant is an artificial replacement of a missing root of a tooth that is inserted into the jaw bone when a natural tooth has been extracted.
Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, such as a front tooth, or many missing teeth. Implants can also be used to support dentures, particularly dentures for the lower jaw which will make the denture significantly more stable.
A dental implant is usually a threaded metal screw made of titanium, which is inserted into the jaw bone in a relatively simple surgical procedure. The bone cells will grow right up to the titanium implant and strongly bind the implant to the jaw bone. Once this growth or osseous integration has occurred, an artificial tooth crown can be attached to the implant via an abutment. Many advantages are provided by the dental implants.
However, as with any dental or medical procedure, there are limitations and risks involved with this particular dental procedure.
Limitations for successful dental implant therapy:
Some of the risks involved with the surgical procedure of placing a dental implant include but are not limited to the following:
All invasive or surgical procedures carry risk. Please discuss the benefits and risks of procedures with your dentist before proceeding with treatment. Under current law, we are required to state that you should seek a second opinion from a qualified dental practitioner before proceeding. If you have any further questions about dental implant treatments please ask one of the friendly Dentists in the Oral Experts Group.
