The permanent solution for missing teeth

Dental implants are an advanced, durable solution that can improve your oral health and your smile.

For a strong, natural looking replacement to your original tooth

If gaps in your smile have you self-consciously covering your mouth or missing teeth are making chewing, dental implants are the permanent solution to your problem. Unlike dentures which are removable, dental implants are fused to your jawbone. Made from titanium which mimics your tooth root and covered with a dental crown, dental implants are built for longevity. With the right care, this tooth replacement solution can last a lifetime.

Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, allowing you to eat and speak naturally. A modern, sustainable alternative to dentures, they maintain your natural facial contours and give you back your confidence to smile widely and brightly. They’re the perfect solution if you’re missing one or several teeth. At Toothpaste Family Dentistry, we can help you with dental implants in-house or connect you to the right specialist should you require more individualised care. The procedure is relatively quick and pain-free and you’ll find yourself quickly returned to your day-to-day activities without any discomfort or difficulty.

The benefits of dental implants include:

  • Natural appearance
  • Improved speech
  • Ease with eating
  • Comfortable
  • Long-lasting solution
  • Convenient
  • Improved oral health

Are dental implants the right solution for you?

Before you dive head first into tooth replacement options, we like to make sure that it’s the best solution for your individual case. During an initial consultation, one of our friendly dentists will evaluate your current oral health and help to ascertain if dental bridges or tooth rehabilitation might be the better option before proceeding with an implant. If you have a broken or damaged tooth, at Toothpaste Family Dentistry, we will only extract that tooth if it’s beyond saving preferring to opt for fillings, root canal treatment or a crown to salvage a tooth that can be repaired. This is because forestalling the removal of a tooth will help to save you in the long run while protecting your oral health.

If a dental implant is seen to be the best solution, the type of implant we recommend to you will depend on your current circumstances. If you just need one tooth replaced, we can provide individual tooth implants while all-on-four or all-on-six implants are ideal for a full new set of teeth. All systems are designed to last for a number of years (approximately 20 years) and perhaps even a lifetime.

If you’re suffering with a broken or missing tooth, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to organise an appointment to discuss a dental implant.
