Dr Joseph Nyepetsi has performed dental implant placement countless times for satisfied patients throughout the CBD, Armidale, Walcha, Uralla and all points beyond. He uses SIMPLET, a dental implant planning software and the OStell IDx, which provides implant stability testing.

Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement option because their fit and function are similar to natural teeth. Even the way you care for dental implants does not deviate from the way you would care for natural teeth.

Tooth Replacement in Armidale, NSW

If you’re considering tooth replacement in Armidale, NSW and have been thinking about dental implants, we can help. The first step is an implant conversation and exam with Dr Nyepetsi. He wants to know what you’re looking for in a new smile. And he wants to be sure your oral health is optimal and ready for your new dental implants in Armidale.

Considerations include your physical health and wellness as well as your teeth and gums. For example, you need sufficient jawbone for dental implants, which means some patients require bone grafting. In other cases, there may not be enough room between your upper jaw and sinus. In this situation, a sinus lift may be in order to make space for your new dental implant in Armidale, NSW.

If you want dental implants, Dr Nyepetsi wants to help you get them. It’s that simple. And he will take measures to help make you a good candidate for this tooth replacement option if there are barriers.

If you’re a good candidate for dental implants, your gentle Armidale, NSW dentist surgically implants replacement roots in your jaw. And he will make sure the area he’s working in is thoroughly numb. For those who need a little extra reassurance, we offer nitrous oxide in Armidale, NSW. Nitrous oxide is a safe gas that lends well to relaxation.

After a few months, your dental implant root—a thin post made from durable titanium—bonds with your jawbone. This root is the foundation for your new tooth.

Dr Nyepetsi can perform multiple dental implants across your smile, but he can also attach a full or partial arch of restoration teeth to only a few dental implants—an implant-supported denture or bridge.

This method improves your bite force and eliminates the need for denture adhesives and realigns. You’ll be able to indulge in your favourite meals again without worry of slippage or chewing difficulties.

Dental Implants May Provide Oral Health Benefits

Dental implants help reduce jawbone deterioration because they offer a replacement root as well as a tooth or teeth.

Additionally, dental implants prevent your natural teeth from shifting toward smile gaps, which is a common problem with tooth loss. Shifting can result in misalignment, uneven wear on teeth and even future tooth loss.

When you’re teeth are intact, and your bite is strong, you can incorporate healthier foods into your diet, which may benefit your overall wellness and digestion.
