Bonding with Nature: Dental Implants in Kalgoorlie
Of all the ways the dentistry world has found to replace missing teeth, a dentist implant does the job most effectively and in the most natural way. You can look this up on the net, but as is often the case, you will be confronted with long, technical words that can leave the layperson none the wiser. That is a shame because it is such a natural way of doing it.
The word that probably causes the most trouble is osseointegration, so let’s look at that. The osseo part means it is associated with bone, and everyone knows what integration is: becoming part of something. A newcomer will become integrated into the community, eventually being known as an integral part of it.
That is what happens when we implant a tooth. A prosthetic (artificial) tooth is made, complete with a root section, just like a real tooth, and that is screwed into the bone where the original tooth was located. Because the body is constantly regenerating itself (think of how a broken bone can join up again over time) the prosthetic root soon becomes embraced by the new growth, so the bond is tighter and even more secure.

Of course, we don’t need to understand everything to gain benefit from it, but understanding the process in advance can help us to make a decision, and if you have heard about dental implants and were considering one as an option, now you should have a bit more clarity about the whole thing.
What is a Dentist Implant Made of?
Dental technology continues to forge ahead, with new techniques, fresh ideas and innovative materials. We at Goldfields Family Dental keep up to date with all these things and are proud to offer patients in Kalgoorlie the very best modern dentistry has to offer including the latest cosmetic dentistry treatments as well as general dentistry. In the case of implants, the twin issues of strength and realistic appearance are crucial. Sure, gold teeth have done a good job over the years because they are incredibly strong, but subtle they are not.
Modern materials combine excellent durability with a natural look. Real teeth are translucent and not truly white, so putting pieces of bright, white porcelain in your mouth is not going to go unnoticed. The material we use for your dental implant will be not only very similar to the real thing but colour-coordinated because everyone’s teeth are slightly different shades and for the sake of authenticity your tooth implant must look like part of the original set, not some sparkling but highly noticeable intruder.
