Implants at Wheelers Hill Dental

Dental implants mimic the form and function of a natural tooth, which consists of a root and a crown. The crown is the visible part of your tooth. It is used to chew food and is therefore the most susceptible to cavities. The crown is attached to the jawbone by way of the root. When decay has gone deep enough or when periodontal disease has advanced enough to warrant an extraction, the entire tooth needs to be removed. The dental implant is a titanium root that is fitted into a socket that we create in your jaw. Once the root heals, we place an artificial crown on top. The new crown is customised to match your bite and the colour of your teeth.
