What are dental implants, and are they safe?

Dental implants in Armidale, NSW are designed to replace missing teeth. They are thin posts made from durable titanium. These posts are implanted in your jawbone and fuse with the bone over time. When fusing is complete, Dr Joseph Nyepetsi crowns your tooth with a life-like tooth replacement.

Dental implants have been a part of dentistry for decades, and they provide unique advantages over other tooth replacement options. Notably, dental implants may contribute to better oral health in addition to being aesthetically appealing.

Dental implants stave off bone loss in the jaw, which is a natural occurrence when teeth are missing. Dental implants also stop natural teeth from shifting toward empty tooth sockets, which can lead to bite issues, erosion, cavities and even future tooth loss.

These sturdy tooth replacements are safe and can last for a lifetime with proper oral hygiene and regular dental exams in our Armidale, NSW dental clinic.

It’s critical to remember that no tooth restoration can prevent gum disease or oral infections. Regular exams help our dentist spot these issues early, and teeth cleans allow our hygienist to get rid of the bacteria that can lead to gum disease. Gum disease can cause implant failure and tooth loss.

We serve patients in Armidale, Kentucky, Walcha, Uralla and all surrounding locations.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
