Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if I lose my front tooth?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic we know that a person can lose their front tooth through a sporting injury or an accident. Sometimes a person can lose a front tooth when their crown comes to the end of it’s lifespan. Some patients break their front tooth and wear a partial denture and wonder if there is a fixed and permanent solution to replacing one or more missing front teeth.

 

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic we educate our patients that a dental implant is the same size as your natural tooth and therefore is a predictable and straightforward way to replace a missing front tooth. During the implant screw placement and implant crown restoration phase of dental implant treatment you will always have a temporary tooth in place connected to the implant so that your natural appearance is maintained.

What are the alternatives to a dental implant for a missing front tooth?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre a dental bridge can be used to replace a missing tooth by using the neighbouring teeth for support. The neighbouring teeth are ground down to support the bridge and a false porcelain tooth is suspended off of it. Bridges can weaken teeth over time and decrease their life-span.

 

A partial denture is a removable option for replacing a missing tooth. This involves a false tooth which is placed on a plate that rests on your gums and against your neighbouring teeth. A partial denture can feel bulky and cause discomfort.

 

With dental implants the screw is placed beneath the gums and the screw is the same size as the natural tooth. A porcelain crown is then permanently connected to the dental implant. Patient’s always comment that dental implants look, feel and function like the tooth that they lost.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic we make our dental implant crowns with the highest quality porcelain so they blend naturally with your neighbouring teeth. Your dental implant will help to preserve your gum and bone where your tooth was lost.

 

Dental implants are comfortable as they feel like a natural tooth. The porcelain crown feels like the enamel of teeth and a dental implant crown has the same dimensions as your missing tooth.

 

Dental implants allows patients to bite and chew food comfortably. It is a tooth for life if you maintain excellent oral hygiene and do not smoke. Regular 6 monthly visits with your dentist in Smile Hub Dental Clinic for a check up and dental professional cleaning is important.

 

Dental implants give patients confidence when eating, smiling and talking.
