Explaining the benefits of our dental implants services in Geelong

September 28, 2022

Wyatt Ryan offers dental implants to patients in Geelong. With these implants, people can enjoy a long-lasting solution to their missing tooth or teeth. But are they appropriate for everyone? And what advantages can they bring to your life?

The best way to find out whether you are a contender for one or more implants is to talk to Wyatt Ryan Dental’s experienced team. Our dentists know this option works well for many people, but there are a few factors that can make it unsuitable for some.

These include:

  • Not having enough fully grown, healthy jaw bone to provide adequate support for implants. The procedure is not recommended for children because their dental bone doesn’t develop fully until they hit their late teens.
  • Having serious gum disease. Healthy gums play an important role when it comes to supporting successful implants. We can help you address gum disease issues, then you can hopefully continue on with your implant.
  • And having a medical condition that negatively impacts bone healing.

But if implants are suitable for you, they can have a positive and lasting impact on your life.

Highly aesthetic and functional

A tooth implant is a titanium screw that is surgically placed in the jaw. It bonds with the bone and works as the root portion of your artificial tooth. Dentists fix a crown to the implant once it has fused with the bone. While the entire process can take several trips to the dentist over a period of months, the results are impressive.

Dental implants, which can be used to anchor bridgework, are highly functional and look like your natural teeth. They are comfortable, give you great chewing capacity and are extremely aesthetic, helping you to retain the natural shape of your face.

Losing a tooth or teeth to decay, trauma or extraction can make you self-conscious about your appearance. But with tooth implants, you can retain your confidence and smile. And that’s a welcome change in your life.
