It can be hard to go about your day when you have a missing tooth. Many people feel anxious about having a missing tooth and it can make simple tasks, like chewing and talking, suddenly difficult.
When you lose a tooth, it’s always important to replace it because it can cause severe changes to your mouth health. This small shift in the structure of your teeth will cause another and another until it changes the whole dynamic of your mouth. Major shifts like this to your natural bite can cause dental occlusion (the way your teeth come together) and this can cause even more problems beyond the inside of your mouth.
When it comes to choosing a dental implant, it can be daunting to decide between all the new options available. That’s why L&R Dental has created a full guide about the different types of dental implants.
What are dental implants made of?
Dental implants are made up of three parts: the crown that resembles your tooth, the connector the secures the crown to the base and the base which provides a safe, stable base for the implant.
Are dental implants permanent solutions?
With the proper care routine, dental implants are 100% a permanent solution.
They are designed to last anywhere between 20 and 30 years. Compared to other, short-term alternatives, dental implants are designed so that you don’t have to worry about regular replacements or applications and get back your natural, beautiful smile easily.
How much do different dental implants cost?
In Australia, the price for a straightforward dental implant ranges between $4,000 to $6,000 per tooth. For a full arch, it comes to $25,000-$40,000.
