The Advantages of Digital Dental Implants
Over the past decade, dentistry in Australia has improved steadily, as has most other areas of healthcare. Millions of Australians suffer from tooth decay and periodontal disease every year.
People are increasingly losing their teeth due to a growing population and an aging population. Digital teeth implants are more realistic and long-lasting than bridges and dentures of the past.
Apart from their mechanical functions, our teeth can serve other purposes, the most obvious of which is aesthetic. It is important to consider the psychological and social effects of unsightly gaps, since our appearance affects our mood!
In addition to tooth loss, there can be other health issues that arise as a result. The front teeth can become compressed if your molars are missing, sometimes being pushed forward as they were not designed to support facial height or chew food. Whenever lips and cheeks are not supported by teeth and gums, they sag, resulting in an aged appearance. The loss of bone can shrink your gums and further age you.
Digital dental implants: what are they?
Your teeth are held in place by dental implants, just as natural teeth have roots. Replacement teeth, bridges and dentures are held in place by implants, which are small titanium posts surgically positioned inside the jaw.
During the osseointegration process, the dental implant becomes integrated with the jawbone. Implants are held in place by a strong bond formed by the bone surrounding them.
Your jawbone fuses with implants, providing firm support for prosthetic teeth. A dentist can mount replacement artificial teeth on implants after the site has healed and the implants have been placed.

Digital implants allow for precise placement by using 3D computer models. It can dramatically reduce the amount of time you spend in the dental chair and simplify the procedure. Surgical time is reduced, which reduces infection risks, resulting in a faster recovery after surgery.
How Painful Is Digital Dental Implant Surgery?
Digital surgery uses 3D CT imaging to pinpoint the location of the nerve and the bone condition. The dentist must make a large incision all the way to the bone in order to perform traditional dental implant surgery.
Computer-guided digital implants reduce bleeding, swelling, and recovery time because they do not raise the gingival flap and do not require sutures.
With digital implant technology, patients with conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes may be eligible for treatment because of less bleeding and swelling after dental surgery. Find out more by scheduling a free consultation with your local dental clinic.
Solution that lasts
A digital teeth implant can restore the functionality and aesthetics of your smile when teeth have been damaged by tooth decay or injury. Due to their durability, dental implants can be considered permanent once they have been placed.
