If you’ve considered tooth replacement, chances are you’ve heard about dental implants in Booragoon, WA. We offer both single implants and implant-supported prosthetics—the latter for full or substantial tooth loss.

Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants restore your lost tooth root and your tooth, providing a more permanent solution to tooth loss.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dentures, partials and bridges work well for tooth replacement, but dentures can slip over time as your jawbone deteriorates—a common occurrence when teeth are missing. Similarly, a bridge does not stimulate your jawbone to remain viable, though it is a fixed appliance as is a dental implant.

With dental implants, the replacement root may urge your jawbone not to shrink, which may give you a prematurely aged appearance. Additionally, they do not require specialised care or added oral hygiene steps at home. You brush, floss, and visit your dentist on time for exams and cleanings. You’ll never need adhesives or relines with dental implants.

Learning Whether Dental Implants Are Right for You

It starts with a consultation at our dental clinic. Your dentist will examine your teeth and gums, take x-rays if needed, and talk to you about your smile goals and health history, including any current medications you’re taking.

If it is determined that dental implants are right for you, we schedule your implant placement in our dental surgery.

However, if dental implants are not the right solution, your dentist may suggest treatments to bring you into candidacy, including bone grafting if your jawbone health is not sufficient to hold your new tooth root.
