Dental Implants in Epping

If you thought dentures were the only solution for missing teeth, think again. At Epping Family Dental, we can enhance smiles with natural-looking dental implants, which are stronger, more comfortable and longer-lasting than other options for replacing missing teeth. They can:

  • Replace one or more teeth without affecting neighbouring teeth
  • Help support or stabilise upper or lower dentures
  • Support bridges or replace a partial denture
Made of surgical-grade titanium (we use high-quality Straumann® Dental Implants), a dental implant is an artificial tooth root positioned in the jaw. A crown or bridge can be placed on top. This is typically considered the preferred way to replace one or more teeth lost due to an injury or periodontal (gum) disease.

What Are the Benefits, and Am I a Candidate?

Implants are far superior to dentures. They allow you to eat with confidence, as they don’t shift the way dentures can. They also have the appearance and feel of natural teeth, so you can be comfortable with your smile. And when taken care of properly, they can last a lifetime—they offer an exceptional success rate.
This type of restoration is suitable for individuals of all ages who are in good health and have sufficient jaw bone to allow for placement and optimal retention of the titanium screw. There cannot be an active infection in your mouth, so we’ll start with a consultation and examination to ensure this treatment is appropriate for you.

Ridge (Graft) Augmentation

Sometimes damage to the jawbone occurs due to defects in the upper or lower jaw. This damage can result from tooth loss, trauma or infection, and may lead to insufficient bone to hold the screw. A solution is to lift a piece of the gum and position bone graft material or a bone substitute to bolster the jaw and redevelop some lost bone.

Ridge augmentation can be performed separately or in tandem with placing the titanium screw. It all depends on your unique circumstances. A benefit of ridge augmentation is that it can improve your appearance and improve the chances for the lasting success of your restoration.

Sinus (Graft) Augmentation

Weak bone quality and quantity can, in many cases, lead to the loss of the upper molar teeth. For the procedure to have a positive outcome, it’s critical to have both sufficient bone quantity and quality.

The posterior section of the upper jaw is an area in which a part of the sinus cavity is found. If bone loss has occurred in that area due to periodontal disease or tooth loss, you may have insufficient bone. Considered a specialised surgical technique, sinus (grafting) augmentation involves the gentle elevation of the sinus floor to grow bone and permit the best possible outcome for the restoration.
