Dental Implants and Bridges
Losing your teeth may limit your chewing. Missing teeth can also lead to further oral health problems and impact your bite force. At New Lambton Family Dental, our friendly and compassionate team wants to help you restore your smile, improve your oral health and boost your dietary selection.
Our New Lambton, NSW dentists, Dr Maria Paez and Dr Jonathan Michael, hold no judgments and only want what is best for your confidence and future oral health. They want to help repair your missing teeth and they offer crowns and bridges, dental implants and even dentures to help you regain your smile and improve your oral health.
Dental Implants in New Lambton, NSW for a New Smile
A dental implant is considered by many to be the most realistic tooth replacement available today because it replaces your tooth and the root as well. Dental implants are thin posts implanted in your jaw. These posts are designed to bond with your jawbone much like a natural tooth root. After healing, this implant is capped with a dental crown.
Dental implants can also support a denture or a dental bridge; generally, it only takes a few dental implant posts to offer this level of support.
In some cases, if your jawbone is compromised, bone grafting may be required. If your sinus does not allow room for an upper dental implant, a sinus lift may also be required.
With proper at-home care and regular dental exams and cleans, dental implants can last years or even a lifetime.
Dental Bridges and CEREC Same-Day Crowns
Dental bridges in New Lambton, NSW are a time-tested solution to tooth loss. A dental bridge is designed to close or “bridge” the gaps where teeth are missing.
Dental bridges are held in place with specialised dental crowns atop healthy adjacent teeth. The artificial tooth fills in the gap and the adjacent teeth secure the bridge and restoration tooth.
Dr Paez or Dr Michael will customise your dental bridge to blend in with your smile, colouring and shaping the bridge components to fit the contours of your mouth.
Caring for Your New Smile
Dental implants in New Lambton, NSW require no special maintenance other than the same attention you would pay to natural teeth.
Tips for care include brushing and flossing regularly and visiting our dental clinic twice per year for exams and cleans.
Even full mouth restorations will not prevent gum infections and gum disease, which cause your implants to fail or weaken the teeth supporting your dental bridge.
