DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dr. Ali Kashefi

Dental implants are considered one of the best permanent solutions for missing teeth. Other tooth replacement options rely on adjacent teeth or adhesives, resulting in damage to your natural teeth and a less than ideal stability. Dental implants also have the added benefit of providing jaw support and preventing jaw shrinkage, while providing a tooth replacement solution that can last a lifetime.

If you are looking for the best solution for replacing missing teeth, please contact North Adelaide Dental Care today for a consultation with Dr.Kashefi to see if dental implants best meet your needs.

 

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium screws that are inserted directly into your jawbone to replace missing tooth roots. Once Dental implants bond to the jaw bone, they will provide the most secure hold for your artificial tooth.

Once Dental implants are surgically inserted into your jawbone , a healing period is required in which your jawbone accepts your dental implant as a natural tooth root. Once accepted, you will return to our office to have an impression taken of the implant in order for a crown to be fabricated. Although it does take some time for dental implants to be completed, this wait is well worth the final results. At North Adelaide Dental Care , all parts of your implant procedure will be performed in our office by Dr. Kashefi, increasing both your comfort and convenience.


Dental Restoration Options

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, a few teeth, or an entire row of teeth. Dental implants can be used to provide a strong and functionally superior alternative to dentures.

Your restoration options with dental implants include:

  • Dental crowns
  • Dentures
  • Dental bridges

Depending on your individualized needs, Dr. Kashefi is able to use dental implants in variety of ways to provide the best possible results. Due to the superior hold offered by implants, Dr. Kashefi may recommend dental implants to hold dentures and bridges in place. When a dental implant is used to hold dentures or dental bridges, you can rest assured that your teeth will not slip out, fit uncomfortably, or cause harm to adjacent teeth.


What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants offer the only permanent solution for tooth replacement. Offering the strongest and most secure hold for artificial teeth, dental implants have several advantages over other forms of tooth replacement. Benefits of dental implants include:

  • Fixed and will not slip out of place
  • Do not rely on adjacent teeth for support
  • Prevent jaw shrinkage and collapse
