Implant dentistry: look after your whole mouth

Restore your tooth and maintain the health of your remaining teeth and jaw

When you lose a tooth it affects your remaining teeth and the health of your jaw. That is why you should replace a tooth with implant dentistry. That is why dentists recommend replacing a missing tooth.

The long term benefits of maintaining a full jaw of teeth, prosthetic and natural, is that our jaw and teeth remain healthier for longer. Provided you maintain your oral hygiene and go to regular check-ups. When you lose a tooth, the teeth on either side start to drift. Which can cause bite alignment issues.

Implant dentistry

If you’re missing a tooth the best way to replace it is with a dental implant and prosthetic attachment. The dental implant replaces the tooth root and the prosthetic tooth replaces one or missing teeth, depending on what your needs are.

At Brisbane Dental Implant Group we offer a wide variety of implant dentistry options, from single tooth replacement to full-arch restoration.

Why it’s better to replace a missing tooth

Replacing a tooth has a number of health benefits. Namely it can help to stop further tooth loss which occurs because of jawbone degradation.

Better to replace a tooth than teeth. One dental implant and maintaining optimal oral hygiene is cheaper and better for you than having to have your last few remaining teeth removed and replaced with a full implant supported denture.

Your gums

No one really thinks of the health of their gums when it comes to tooth loss. But as we’ve said time and time again, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Worldwide.  Taking care of your gums can prevent decay, infection and tooth loss.

With proper oral hygiene routine—brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day—you can help to keep your gums healthy. As well as eating less sugary snacks.
