Rockhampton Dental Implants
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury or some other reason.
An implanted tooth is usually made up of a titanium fixture surgically embedded in the jaw bone (stage 1 surgical component) and most commonly a porcelain tooth, usually with a precious metal substructure cemented or screwed into the implant fixture (stage 2 prosthodontic component).
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.
