St Heliers, Auckland Dental Implants, Tooth Replacement Treatment Updated

Dr Dave Richards of Natural Dental St Heliers renews his commitment to providing high-quality dental care to residents in the area with his newly updated tooth implant procedure. Dental implants are often recommended for adults who have one or several missing teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants are anchored into the jaw – for a permanent tooth solution.

Dr Richards recommends the new treatment to adults who are uncomfortable with dentures or bridges, as implants offer a more natural look. Further, dental implants also maintain the structure of the jaw as they are placed within the jaw structure.

Studies have shown that missing teeth cause far more damage than difficulty chewing. Over time, the gaps between the teeth ruin the structural integrity of the jaw, which causes more teeth to fall out and begin a vicious cycle. Dental implants may prevent this from happening by immediately replacing missing teeth and supporting the jawbone, explains the practice.

Dr Richards and his team first conduct a thorough dental exam to see if a client is eligible for implant treatment. Clients need to have healthy gums and enough healthy jawbone to support the implants; any damage to the jaw or any disease of the gums needs to be treated first.

Other treatments provided by the practice include CEREC (Chainside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) crowns. CEREC crowns are designed using computer-aided technology, resulting in durable and natural-looking crowns on the same day, instead of in several weeks.

A satisfied client wrote, “Dave at Natural Smile is fully equipped with the latest in dental technology, and the skill to use it with maximum efficiency. I can’t believe that I woke up on Dentist Day without any apprehension at all, utterly confident of a great result rendered by Dave, and his assistant, Lisa. It was a great day when I found Natural Smile.”
