Replace broken down teeth with our realistic dental implants on the Central Coast.
Chipped or missing teeth can have a significant impact on your health and self-esteem. A chipped tooth, for example, can cause tooth decay and sensitivity — a piece of the protective enamel is missing, exposing the inner tooth nerves to hot, cold, sweet and acidic foods and drinks. A chipped tooth can also be prone to infection which, in rare cases, can be life-threatening.
Missing teeth, on the other hand, can affect your jaw function and impact what you can eat comfortably. Plus, gaps allow neighbouring teeth to drift into unoccupied spaces — if your teeth aren’t in the correct position, you will have issues with bite alignment, general wear and tear, and jaw stress.
With this in mind, it’s important to address a chipped or missing tooth as soon as possible. At Advance Family Dental, we recommend dental implants to replace damaged or missing teeth — dental implants are false teeth that are placed in the jawbone in a series of minor operations.
These teeth can be removed and replaced whenever necessary, and can also be used to hold a dental bridge or dentures in place. Soon enough, your teeth will be restored and you’ll be smiling with confidence.

What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a piece of titanium or another kind of metal that looks like a screw. It is screwed into the jaw where the missing tooth’s roots once were. Over time, the jawbone grows around the implant to hold it in place. Then, an artificial tooth (crown) is attached to the metal to fill in the gap where the missing tooth was.
