A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is integrated into a candidate's jaw bone to hold a replacement tooth or bridge; usually via a screw attachment. They're an ideal choice for people who have lost a tooth or several teeth due to an injury, disease or another reason. Tooth loss is a very serious issue. For one, it can dramatically impact one's ability to eat and sometimes alter facial features. Therefore, nutrition intake and diet become a concern. Tooth loss can not only affect a person's appearance and cause speech difficulties, but can also be a catalyst for more damage.
Dental implants offer an array of benefits. They look and feel natural, making it very hard for anyone to tell that you ever lost a tooth in the first place!
However, cost and fear of implant surgery has been patient's biggest fear for many years. At Geelong Family Dental Care, we offer affordable implants and sedative options when the procedure is done. Furthermore, everything is predesigned so the procedure is a lot quicker and pain free.
