Dental Implant Solutions in Chatswood
For many people, the thought of losing one’s teeth is terrifying. For others, it’s an unfortunate reality. But losing one’s teeth is no longer an irreversible issue that brings fear, anxiety and embarrassment. Thanks to modern methods and technology, you can now restore your full set of teeth. At our Chatswood clinic, we offer the two most popular methods of dental implants and bridges.
In this procedure, a crown is used to replace the missing tooth and is connected to jawbone with a titanium post. Each post can support more than one crown. Although modern implants are much higher in cost, they are ideal for qualifying candidates as they provide the best aesthetic results and are long-lasting. Most implants average a lifespan of 15 years.
While this is an attractive solution, it is not suitable for everyone, especially for patients with pre-existing medical conditions like severe diabetes. A less invasive alternative is bridging.
Bridging is a common restorative method in which the false tooth is connected to neighbouring natural teeth by a bridge. In order to create a surface area strong enough to support the bridge, natural teeth in the surrounding area are filed down, a process that’s irreversible. The bridge is then permanently fixed into place.
While this option is the less costly one, bridges generally need replacing every 5-7 years.
