Restore Your Smile at Mills Dental Care

Dental Implants Port MoresbyWhen you have a missing tooth in your mouth, it can do more than just impact the aesthetic of your smile. A lost tooth can also affect everything from your bone structure and how you chew, to your daily self-confidence.

Thankfully, Mills Dental Care offers a reliable, safe, and long-lasting solution to this problem in the form of dental implants. When compared to other tooth replacement procedures available in modern dentistry, dental implants provide the most lifelike representation of a natural tooth.

The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth

While a missing tooth may seem harmless to some, it can cause complex problems for the function and health of your other teeth. When a secondary tooth is extracted or falls out, the bone in this particular area of your jaw begins to resorb and gradually break down. Not only can this cause the surrounding teeth to collapse into this space, but it also has the potential to lead to the opposite tooth erupting further.

If an implant is placed soon after the removal or loss of a tooth, it can immediately halt this bone loss and allow you to maintain your natural bite.

The Advantages of Dental Implants

Thanks to modern developments in dentistry, implants are able to offer patients with a number of benefits that other procedures simply do not. These include:

  • They are highly durable and can support the weight of numerous teeth
  • They are the longest lasting when compared to other dental restorations
  • Implants use safe and trusted biocompatible materials which allow them to permanently fuse with the jaw, resulting in a lifelong solution
  • The procedure has a 98% success rate
  • Their durability makes them easy to maintain
  • They are non-invasive to the surrounding teeth

The Dental Implant Procedure

To begin with, our dentist will place the implant into your jaw using a straight-forward and minimally-invasive procedure. This implant resembles an artificial tooth root, which then fuses with new bone to be held firmly in place. Once the site is healed and gum tissue has grown over it, our dentist will uncover it to attach the crown (or artificial tooth). Your crown will have been custom-made in our local lab to ensure it blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. The overall dental implant procedure, including healing time, may take between 2-3 months.

If you have a missing tooth, replacement is vital. Please contact our friendly team today to discuss if dental implant therapy is right for you!
