Bexley Dental, a dental office based in Bexley, NSW, Australia, has explained the benefits of dental implants and the All on 4 procedure in Sydney and neighbouring areas. Dental implants offer the advantage of offering a permanent solution for the replacement of missing teeth, compared to the benefits offered by dentures and non-permanent bridges. The problem with dentures is that they are uncomfortable to wear all day and the decreased bite-strength means patients sometimes are unable to eat their favourite foods, and they often worry about the dentures becoming loose while they are eating or talking.
A spokesperson for Bexley Dental explains, “When a person is missing a tooth, the dentist must decide how to re-create the crown portion, and choose the best method to hold it in place. Dental implants were created for this purpose. Dental implants are metallic screw-shaped cylinders, which are placed securely into the jawbone to replace the root and secure a replacement tooth. Because implants are inserted directly into the jawbone, they mimic the stimulation that the root of a natural tooth would provide to the bone, and keep the bone strong and healthy, just like a real tooth – and avoiding the bone loss that can accompany less permanent options.”
There are two basic types of dental implants that can be offered. Individual implants are suitable for patients who are missing a single tooth or one or two adjacent teeth. However, for patients who need half or full sets of teeth replaced, the second type, which is the All on 4 is required. This is because a whole set of teeth can actually be supported by only four implants, which provides a great option for patients who have parts of their jawbone that have low density and unable to provide sufficient support for the implants.
Meanwhile, there are three factors that have an impact on the cost and the outcome of the implant procedure. One of these factors is the proper education of the dentist, which will optimise the comfort of the patient and the longevity of the dental implant. Another factor is having the suitable materials to provide a natural-looking and durable dental implant. And the third factor is the range of experience of the dentist with regards to dental implant procedures.
That the dentist has received post-graduate implant courses is important because there are so many factors to take into account for a particular patient. These include: the spacing of the teeth; gum health; how the position of the teeth could affect or interfere with the implant; critical structures and nerves involved in relation to the ideal positioning of the implant; jaw conformation and the space for the implant; the type of implant to ensure comfortable and secure results; bone quality and structure; and the depth and location of the sinus cavities in relation to the implant.
