Dental Implants Brisbane
“Dental implants provide support, strength and stability by replacing the missing tooth”.
Dental implant is often the best treatment for missing tooth. When a damaged or decayed tooth is removed, both the visible part of the tooth (i.e. the crown) and the root are lost.
A dental implant is placed in the jawbone, so that it can fuse with your natural bone and becomes a strong and sturdy foundation for the replacement tooth.
Dental implant can be used to replace missing tooth or restore teeth for implant-supported bridge or denture. Implant can also help prevent healthy adjacent teeth from shifting when an empty space were left for an extended period of time.
Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They will allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play and enjoy all your regular activities without thinking about your teeth.

Why Dental Implant?
1. Best Long-term Solution
With proper care, they can often last more than 10 years, or even a lifetime. At some point, however, they may need to be replaced.
While dental implants may need periodic adjustments, implants can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time.
A regular at home care routine and professional dental cleaning/check-up appointments will ensure the protection of the implant.
2. Protect Healthy Bone
Leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing one or more teeth can lead to additional health issues, such as the loss and deterioration of some of your jawbone.
When it is not being used to support a natural tooth, the jawbone deteriorates, losing its strength and firmness.
By stimulating bone growth and preventing bone loss, dental implants are the only restoration option that helps to preserves the natural bony architecture.
3. Better Alternatives than Dental Bridge
Placing a tooth-supported bridge requires grinding away the teeth on one or both sides of the missing tooth or teeth, thereby damaging healthy teeth to restore those that are missing.
Dental implants do not impact healthy teeth, as they are placed in the jawbone in the spot where your missing tooth root was.
4. Supporting Your Denture
One of the most common problems for denture wearers is that their dentures slip, move or click when they eat, talk, smile, laugh, kiss, yawn or cough, so that they must reposition them into place in the mouth.
Dental implants support your denture so it is strong and stable. It secures your denture so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth.
Dr Henry is finding patients who elect to have Implant supported dentures can eat a wider range of foods and as a result their diet can be more varied and nutritious.
