A dental implant is an artificial tooth root composed of a titanium screw mounted in the jawbone. Implants are used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures. They are very realistic restorations, looking and feeling like natural teeth.
Dental implants resemble a tooth or group of teeth, replacing missing teeth to remedy partial or complete edentulism (toothlessness). They are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease or an injury.
The top of the implanted screw is uncovered for a fabricated tooth to be attached by using either a cementing agent or a tiny screw. Implant bridges can be either removable or fixed depending upon the number of implants.
WHAT WE DO
The Dental Solution Australia (TDSA) use CAD/CAM milling technologies to create casts for implant prosthesis. TDSA manufacture Standard and Premium Implants. We also manufactures and stocks a range of prosthesis (both removable and fixed) that can be supported by implants.
A dental implant may be needed in the following situations:
- To replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth.
- To support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture.
- To provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
- To form the ‘root’ for a dental crown.
