Dental Implants Toowoomba

  • There have been many improvements and advancements in dental care as well as dental treatments and services.  One recent treatment that has gained popularity and now widely accepted are dental implants.  Dental implants or endoosseous implants or fixtures are used to replace a missing tooth or teeth.  It is a preferred treatment by most patients because it is aesthetically pleasing, has greater comfort, feels natural, can boost one’s self confidence and the convenient.
  • At Southside Family Dental we ensure the health and longevity of the dental implants and therefore take time for proper diagnosis and assessment of the bone and gingiva.  The bone of the patient must be strong enough to receive and withstand the load brought when the person bites.  It is advisable to have implants placed on high density bone.  Distance to any nearby structures that may cause interference to the implants must also be carefully planned.  In cases where there are multiple missing teeth more implants are to be used and it should be properly spaced.
  • At Southside Family Dental Toowoomba and Brisbane, to ensure success of the dental implant after placement of the dental prosthesis, oral hygiene reinforcement and regular dental check-ups must be done.  Instructions will be given on how to use dental floss as well as proper tooth brushing methods.  Oral prophylaxis must be done every six months and regular check-up's on the dental prosthesis is done to ensure that it is still functional and aesthetically pleasing.
  • With proper evaluation, care and maintenance, dental implants is a great way to replace missing a tooth or teeth.
