Our dentist Dr Kenneth Cheung is one of the few clinicians in Australia qualified with dual postgraduate training in dental implants and cosmetic dentistry. We are committed to providing high quality dental implant treatments to Wagga Wagga and the Riverina.
Dr Kenneth Cheung has received a Graduate Diploma in Oral Implantology at the University of Sydney. He has placed and restored over thousands of implants successfully. He is also the only qualified dentist in the Riverina working with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, providing implant services to their members.
At Morgan Street Dental Centre, we use Straumann implants, the world leader in implant products. We can also restore any other implant systems upon request. All the implant-supported prostheses are constructed by our highly experienced ceramist, Mr Michael Petricevic at his Canberra laboratory Artceram Dental Studio.
A crown, bridge or entire set of teeth can be attached to the implants. The result is a full set of teeth that look and feel just like your natural teeth.
A dental implant is an artificial root, anchored into your jawbone, supporting a fixed tooth replacement. Because they are biocompatible, they stimulate the fusion to the bone needed to create a permanent tooth replacement. Benefits of dental implants include:
Natural-looking tooth restoration - Dental implants feel, look and function just like natural teeth. You’ll be able to eat and chew like you used to, and once again have a beautiful smile.
Biocompatible materials - Implants are usually made of titanium, and crowns and bridges of porcelain. Comfortable and highly successful when professionally placed, they will not compromise your healthy teeth.
Dental implants can be used in many complex situations - If the surrounding teeth cannot support a bridge, a freestanding implant is still an option. If the amount of bone is not enough for a foundation, it can be grafted.
A long-lasting solution - Contemporary clinical research shows excellent clinical outcomes for implant-borne restorations if maintained with good oral hygiene and regular reviews.
Single tooth Implant
If you are missing one tooth, a dental implant will serve as a strong foundation for a dental crown. This crown is matched to the shade and shape of your other natural teeth, and will not affect the surrounding healthy teeth. Best of all, no one will be able to tell the difference!
multiple Dental Implants
If you have multiple missing teeth, we can attach a bridge to implants on either side of your missing teeth. This means that you do not need one dental implant per each missing tooth. This will reduce the risk of further loss of natural bone, and provide a beautiful, seamless and functional result.
Full arch implants
To replace all your teeth, dentures or bridges can be attached to the implants. A full arch implant-supported bridge leaves the gums free and does not cover your palate, so food tastes like it should and your teeth function like they used to. Imagine being able to eat, talk and laugh again without worrying! That’s the life-changing impact of dental implant technology.
