Things to Know Before Doing Tooth Replacement
Before deciding on a process for tooth replacement Perth, there are several things to consider. The type of replacement procedure and the cause of the loss must be considered. You also need to know how long you will have to wait before being able to eat again after undergoing this treatment.
The type of replacement procedure
The replacement procedure you choose will depend on your lifestyle and the look you want. There are several options, including:
- Dental implants are small titanium posts surgically placed in the jawbone to replace missing teeth. They’re typically worn for life but can be removed if needed.
- Fixed bridgework involves inserting metal plates into your mouth, which can be changed later if necessary (for example, if one breaks or becomes loose after years of wear).
- Removable partial dentures – These consist of several pieces connected by wires or springs; they’re held together by removable crowns on each piece (the part where your mouth meets the other teeth). Removable partial dentures are usually used when there aren’t enough healthy teeth left over from a root canal treatment to restore them fully; otherwise, they would need to be replaced altogether with an implant-supported prosthetic replacement system like those pictured below:
If you have good bone health and a healthy jaw, you will have a better chance of success with tooth replacement Perth. One of the most frequent treatments in your practice is bone grafting. It can be performed before or after implant placement but is often done at the same time as your implant procedure because there are fewer risks involved in doing so than if it were done separately from your tooth replacement surgery (e.g., if you decide to keep one or more of your natural teeth).
Tooth loss cause
Accidental tooth loss. This is the most common cause of tooth replacement. It can happen when you accidentally hit your mouth with something, and it pushes against the root of a tooth, causing it to break off or crack—periodontal disease (gum disease). If you have periodontal disease, plaque builds up on the root surface that covers it and prevents oxygen from reaching it correctly; this leads to decay in your gums and eventually causes them to lose their ability to hold onto their teeth. The longer these problems go untreated, the more likely they will get worse—ultimately leading to permanent loss if left unchecked long enough! Periodontal disease (gum disease).

Duration of the tooth replacement process
Depending on the tooth type you have, replacing it can take anywhere from a few days to more than two years. The duration of your treatment will depend on many factors, including:
- Your general health and medical history
- How much time you have left before needing a replacement tooth again (this is called your “root canal life”)
There are also different types of therapeutic work that can be done with single or multiple implants. This means they should be placed in various areas around your mouth rather than all at once, as traditional crowns would be.
The cost of tooth replacement is one of the most important factors to consider when deciding whether or not to do a tooth replacement. Your dental insurance company will cover some or all of your treatment costs, but they also have limits on what they will pay for. Depending on where you live and how severe your condition is, the average cost of a single tooth-level implant is between $5,000 and 10,000 dollars. If you have multiple missing teeth needing replacing at once (usually two or more), then this can easily double or triple those numbers!
