Den­tal im­plants a nat­u­ral choice

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Den­tal im­plants can re­place miss­ing teeth and rep­re­sent an al­ter­na­tive to den­tures or bridge­work. The ad­van­tages in­clude im­proved chew­ing abil­ity, bet­ter speech and im­proved self-es­teem.

The ti­ta­nium al­loy im­plant is sur­gi­cally im­planted in the jaw­bone, re­plac­ing the root of the miss­ing tooth. It is done un­der lo­cal anaes­the­sia, just like any rou­tine den­tal treat­ment.

While high-tech in na­ture, den­tal im­plants are ac­tu­ally more tooth­sav­ing than tra­di­tional bridge­work, since im­plants do not rely on neigh­bour­ing teeth for sup­port.

Den­tal im­plants are so nat­u­ral-look­ing and feel­ing, you may for­get you ever lost a tooth.

For den­ture wearer, den­tal im­plants can pro­vide sup­port for a den­ture, mak­ing it more se­cure and com­fort­able

Un­der proper con­di­tions and dili­gent pa­tient main­te­nance, im­plants can last a life­time. Long-term stud­ies con­tinue to show im­prov­ing suc­cess rates for im­plants.

Dr Jo­hay Amith and his team at den­tal­to­day also look af­ter all the reg­u­lar and es­sen­tial den­tistry needs of pa­tients, to­gether with cos­metic den­tistry, teeth whiten­ing, crowns, bridges and den­tures.

“We have some of the most mod­ern hi-tech den­tal equip­ment avail­able any­where in the world,” says Dr Amith. “Our dig­i­tal x-ray sys­tem is just one of the items we use to take the stress out of den­tistry for our pa­tients.

“This re­mark­able equip­ment pro­vides us with a de­tailed panoramic scan of pa­tients’ teeth and jaws, with­out the need of the old filmin­method. What’s more, our new dig­i­tal sys­tem uses around 80 per­cent less ra­di­a­tion than older meth­ods!

“Our pa­tients are of­fered a variety of stress­free al­ter­na­tives to help them re­lax in our com­fort­able sur­round­ings.”

At den­tal­to­day, the first ex­am­i­na­tion and con­sul­ta­tion is free, and Dr Amith and his team can ad­vise you of the de­tails and ben­e­fits of each.
