Dental Implants in Sydney
People can lose teeth, either through trauma, decay or gum disease. Whatever the reason for losing your teeth, they need to be replaced, both for aesthetic and functional reasons. The most common treatments for missing teeth are either a denture or a fixed bridge. However, dental implants are now a more popular treatment option to replace missing teeth, as they provide a long term solution, slow down bone loss and preserve nearby healthy tooth structure.
Replacing a tooth is not just good for your smile appearance, tooth loss can lead to a series of dental problems, including shifting teeth, bite problems, bone loss in the jawbone, and gum problems. By filling in gaps, you are providing crucial support for opposing and neighboring teeth and preventing possible bone loss.
