Fanelli Dental have the solution for missing teeth


As people age, they are likely to experience tooth loss due to various reasons such as gum disease, decay, or injury. However, thanks to modern dentistry, dental implants have emerged as a game-changer.

Dr Remo Fanelli from Fanelli Dental has been providing implant solutions in Gladstone for more than 20 years and can only see immense benefits of replacing missing teeth by this advanced technology.

“Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants offer a permanent solution that looks and feels like natural teeth,” Dr Fanelli said.

Improved oral and overall health : Implants maintain good oral health by filling gaps in their teeth that can lead to bacteria build-up, decay, and gum disease which has been linked with many health conditions including alzhimers, dementia, heart conditions, diabetes to name a few.

Stability: Dental implants are as stable as teeth as they are anchored directly to the jawbone. Dentures however can move and be unreliable as they rely on suction or adhesives to stay in place.

Better chewing ability: Missing teeth can make it difficult to chew and enjoy certain foods. As Implants are firmly anchored they act as natural teeth resulting in eating wider variety of foods and maintain a healthy diet.

Comfort: Dental implants feel like natural teeth and are more comfortable than dentures, which can sometimes rub against the gums and cause sore spots.

Improved speech: Missing teeth and a loose denture can affect speech by causing slurring or mumbling. Implants can restore proper speech patterns.

Improved appearance: As implants look and feel like natural teeth, they restore a smile, improve appearance and self-confidence. This compares to dentures, which often look artificial and bulky.

Maintenance and Durability: Dental implants require the same level of care as natural teeth, including brushing and flossing and are designed to last a lifetime. Dentures require more maintenance, including soaking and cleaning with special solutions with replacement after a few years.

Overall, dental implants offer a multitude of benefits for anyone with missing teeth. From improved speech and chewing ability to enhanced self-esteem, they can significantly improve the quality of life. While there are several factors to consider before getting dental implants, many find that the benefits outweigh the cost.
