Dental implants are the most permanent tooth replacement options because they restore the full anatomy of missing teeth. For example, they replace lost tooth roots and broken crowns. They also do not need special measures for care—other than brushing and flossing your teeth regularly and visiting your dentist on time for dental exams and professional teeth cleans.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant in Booragoon, WA is a titanium replacement root that bonds with your jawbone and becomes a permanent part of your oral anatomy. When bonding is complete—typically a few months—we add your restoring tooth or a prosthetic like implant-supported dentures to restore your smile.
Even if your crown (restoring tooth) breaks in the future, your dentist can replace it using your artificial tooth root as before.
Maintaining Dental Implants
While dental implants are considered a more permanent solution, it’s important to remember that they do require good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Just like natural teeth can fail without these measures, so can dental implants.
The key is good oral health and lowering your risks for preventable conditions like gum disease, which can cause tooth and implant loss.
