If you are tired of wearing dentures, full implants are a permanent solution. Fixed porcelain teeth over implants can bring back your quality of life and even shape your teeth the way they looked 20 years ago – just bring in a photo of your smile.
When teeth are lost, supporting bone is lost as well. The longer there is no function (tooth), the more bone is lost, impacting on the shape of your jaw. Full arch implants help to restore the shape of your jaw and ensure there is no further loss of bone density.
At Keppel Dentistry we are able to provide the Teeth in a Day service, which restores the teeth with temporary crowns fitted to the dental implants.
A dental implant is a surgical component that integrates with the bone of your jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis like a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.
The basis for modern dental implants is a biological process called osseointegration where materials, like titanium, form an intimate bond to bone.
The implant fixture is first placed, so that it is likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added.
