Dental implants have become the most popular choice to provide a foundation for replacement teeth because of their ability to feel and function like natural teeth. Whether it’s just one missing tooth or an entire section of your mouth, implants should be your go-to dental solutions. At Dr. Cheryl Handley’s dental clinic in Victoria, we offer dental implant procedures and other dental services to help you regain your confidence and smile. Apart from restoring the natural function and beauty of your teeth, our implant treatment also benefits your long-term oral health. Book your appointment today for a beautiful smile.
Implants are made of titanium alloy and are planted in your jawbone during a dental surgery after you are anesthetized. The titanium is inserted into the bone and eventually fuses into it, making these posts permanent. We refer the patients to a qualified specialist for the necessary surgery.
After a few months of healing, we place a "false tooth" on the post. Dr. Handley can even use these posts to affix your dentures permanently, replacing the gap with a permanent tooth or multiple teeth. Not only will the dentures look like your own teeth, but you will also get back your ability to chew, smile, and laugh without worrying about absent teeth.
Dental implants are surgically planted in your jawbone as anchors for your missing teeth. Unlike fixed bridgework or dentures, implants don't slip or cause bone damage as the titanium in the implants integrates with your jawbone. Dental implant treatment is right for you if you are missing one or more teeth, have a fully-grown jawbone, or are unable to wear dentures. Additionally, unlike other tooth replacement options that need periodic repair or replacement, dental implants in Victoria are designed to last for a lifetime under proper care.
If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, dental crowns may be the perfect cosmetic solution for you. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over your tooth to restore it to its original shape. Dental crowns can restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of your teeth. Once the crown is cemented into place, it fully covers the visible section of the tooth that lies above the gum line.
You should get dental crowns in from Dr. Cheryl Hadley if you want to:
Restore a fractured tooth
Fill in a tooth after a root canal
Ensure that a weak tooth won’t fracture
Attaching a bridge
