There have been great advances in techniques for replacing missing teeth in recent years. Dentures and bridgework may still be appropriate treatments in some cases; however, dental implants are now much more likely to be the recommended treatment option.
Dental implants involve inserting a small screw-like titanium rod in the bone, which is used to anchor the replacement tooth. This process requires that the bone itself is of suitable quality and there is enough of it to support the implant. In some cases, the bone may be able to be built up to successfully receive the implant.
Our dentist at Warrnambool Dental will make a thorough assessment of your suitability for this treatment. If there are any complicating factors in your ability to receive this treatment, you will be referred to a specialist dental surgeon for further assessment.
