What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth replacement designed to mimic natural teeth. Consisting of both an implant post and crown, the final result looks and feels most like a natural tooth compared to other tooth replacement options.
At General and Cosmetic Dentistry, we use 3-D cone beam technology to identify and plan for surgical placement of the titanium post. Titanium is a biocompatible metal that integrates with natural bone to create a stable, fixed option for tooth replacement.
Once the healing process occurs, we can place a dental implant crown on top of the implant post to fill the gap in your smile and restore normal function. One of the many benefits of dental implants is that patients can enjoy an unrestricted diet once treatment is complete.
Caring for dental implants is convenient as it is like caring for your natural teeth. Good home care is essential, and when combined with regular professional dental exams and cleanings, it can protect your natural smile and prolong the life of your dentistry.
To learn if you are a good candidate for dental implants, we welcome you to contact our Kew East dental clinic and schedule a consultation with our dental surgeon, Dr Baker Hamdi. We look forward to helping you regain a smile that gives you confidence in your appearance and allows you to eat the foods you love.
