At Northern Beaches Dental in Mackay, we make it our priority to provide you with a service that is both bespoke and professional. Our friendly team enjoy listening to your dental goals and wishes and do their utmost to get you achieving those dreams.
A lot of us lose teeth over the course of our lives and it becomes more common as we age. It can be due to sporting accidents, illness or disease amongst a great many other number of reasons.
Once we have lost a tooth, a lot of us feel like we cannot get it back as it was and will have to opt for a removable device that can be uncomfortable and cumbersome.
However, your dentist in Mackay can offer you a treatment plan that can bring back your old smile permanently. With the use of dental implants, we are able to not only retrieve the original and beautiful appearance of your smile, but we can also allow you to maintain a standard of oral health that is appropriate.
Why is having a full set of teeth a good thing?
It is really important for your oral health and overall well-being to maintain a full set of healthy teeth. We do everything we can to restore damaged or unhealthy teeth by placing crowns on them or filling cavities caused by decay.
In the event that you have lost a tooth, replacing it as quickly as you can will limit any chance of injury to surrounding teeth and the exposed gums. You will have a higher risk of infection at the site of the missing tooth as hard food particles can damage the sensitive tissue.
Surrounding teeth can destabilise over time which can lead to further tooth loss. As more of these surrounding teeth are exposed to bad bacteria, the likelihood of plaque build-up and tartar is a very real situation that needs to be considered as well.
What can we do to help?
A dentist in Mackay will thoroughly examine your mouth and determine whether you are suitable for a dental implant. By using modern digital scanning technology, we are able to precisely pinpoint the exact location of the implant so that it perfectly resembles the original tooth root.
This minimises healing time, maximises comfort and greatly reduces the chance of rejection. Your implant will then have a bespoke ceramic crown fitted onto it either at the same time of the surgery or after a period of healing time, depending on the individual circumstances.
This crown is uniquely created to fit in perfectly with your surrounding teeth and will match them in shape, colour and size. You should be able to bite and chew with ease and not tell the difference between it and your original tooth.
By seeking advice with a dentist in Mackay you can get on track to getting back your old smile again.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
