Why You Should Consider Dental Implants

Missing teeth can be a source of discomfort for many patients.

However, with dental implant treatment from Kerwin Street Dental, we can give our Cairns patient’s smiles a new lease of life. Missing teeth can be caused by a whole range of different factors and these range from gum disease to the simple passing of time. Not only are missing teeth detrimental to your appearance, but to your oral and general health as well. Everyone should have the right to smile and we can give you back the ability to do so while also addressing the health issues that accompany missing teeth. Dental implants were first introduced into mainstream dentistry in the ’60s and since then they have transformed the smiles of people with missing teeth.

At Kerwin Street Dental our goal has always been to provide you with the very highest standards of treatment and care and dental implants have revolutionised the way in which we are able to treat missing teeth. Whether you are missing one tooth or many, dental implants can replace them in both appearance and functionality. They are far more advanced than a simple bridge which only corrects the aesthetic issues of missing teeth and not their function and for this reason, they are by far the most superior solution to treating tooth loss.

Why you should choose dental implants over dentures

One of the major benefits of dental implants is that they offer a permanent solution to missing teeth and never need to be removed in order to be cleaned. In fact, you can treat your dental implants exactly the same way that you would look after normal teeth and regular brushing and flossing will see them last you the rest of your life. Once you have undergone dental implant surgery you won’t have to worry about coming in regularly for maintenance whereas with dentures you will need ongoing visits and treatment. Dentures also have a habit of looking false compared to dental implants and this is because we take great care in creating a prosthetic tooth that mirrors the rest of your natural teeth impeccably.

Dental implants are also a far healthier solution and work to improve your level of oral hygiene at every turn as well as preventing your jawbone from dissolving which can lead to the signs of early ageing. They are also incredibly durable meaning they are far more resistant to any kind of chipping or trauma and don’t require any glue to stay in place because they have been anchored into your jaw. You won’t have to avoid any foods that previously would have caused you problems and dental implants are created from materials that allow you to treat them the same as any other tooth with regards to their function.
