Lost a tooth? At Image Dental we can restore the aesthetics and function back to your smile!

At Image Dental we do everything we can so patients can keep their natural teeth, but sometimes it is inevitableā€¦

At Image Dental in Applecross the last thing we want is to see our patients lose their natural teeth. However, there are instances where saving the tooth is just not possible or a tooth has been knocked out due to physical trauma. For those who have lost a tooth and are looking for a permanent and effective solution, we recommend dental implants.

What are dental implants?

At Image Dental we advocate minimally invasive dentistry with a strong focus on ensuring our patients keep their natural teeth. If this is not possible or not in the best interest of the patient, we utilise dental implants to repair tooth loss.

Dental Implants are titanium screws which are surgically inserted into the jawbone as a tooth root replacement. When the jawbone accepts the implant as part of the patient?s biological makeup, the bone fuses with the screw to create a strong and durable anchor for the crown to be attached to. The porcelain crown is then bonded to the implant to enhance aesthetics and function.

The benefits of dental implants..

As well as enhancing the overall look of your smile, it will also be easier to enhance the health of your mouth, as a full smile is easier to keep clean. You will also be able to talk, eat and bite with proper force without having to worry the implants will slip or come loose!
