Dental Implants in West Perth, WA
Having a healthy and beautiful smile helps you not only eat and enjoy food but also makes it possible for you to communicate confidently with other people.
If you are dealing with the challenges of having gaps in your smile due to tooth loss, dental implants might be a solution for restoring both your smile and your dental health. As your partner in oral health, Dr Matthew Kinsella will go over each option to replace missing teeth and help you make the best choice for your smile.
How Dental Implants Work
A tooth implant is almost like having a natural tooth again.
Dr Kinsella works closely with a trusted oral surgeon who gently places the implant screw in your jawbone during a simple surgical procedure where it acts just like a tooth root, keeping the bone stimulated and healthy. Dental implants naturally integrate with your bone since they are made of biocompatible titanium.
When your implant has fully healed and fused with your bone, Dr Kinsella attaches your new porcelain crown. We customise ceramic porcelain to match your teeth and blend with your smile. Porcelain is also durable and functions like your natural tooth.
What Are the Benefits of Choosing Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer many benefits for patients. Some advantages you might enjoy include:
- No food restrictions since implants function like a natural tooth
- Easy to care for because brushing and flossing doesn’t have to change
- Excellent longevity since they can potentially last for a lifetime with a good home care routine and regular dental check-ups
- No concerns about movement or slippage that you might have with a removable denture
How Can I Learn More About Dental Implants in West Perth?
If you are interested in determining if tooth implants are the right treatment for you, we invite you to contact our West Perth dental clinic. During your evaluation, Dr Kinsella will take x-rays and perform a thorough examination to determine your general dental health and if there is enough stable bone to support your dental implant.
He will review the treatment process with you and refer you to an oral surgeon for the placement of your tooth implant. After your surgery, Dr Kinsella will closely monitor your healing process and determine when your implant is ready for its restoration. The entire process can take about four to six months. During this time, Dr Kinsella will communicate with you and keep you informed about finishing your treatment.
When your implant is stable and fully healed, you’ll return to Dr Matthew Kinsella General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry to have your new crown placed. With your new tooth in place, you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of a fully functioning tooth that complements your smile.
We look forward to helping you achieve the healthy and beautiful smile you deserve, and we welcome your call to our dental surgery in West Perth to learn more about dental implants.
