The long and the short of it is that it depends on what your dental practice is doing to take extra steps to keep you and the staff safe.

At The Dental Lounge at Robina we are taking many extra precautions to ensure the safety of everyone and eliminate transmission of the virus.

Firstly and foremost, only fit and healthy patients are allowed to attend!  We are postponing any patients by several weeks if they have any symptoms whatsoever.  So keep this in mind, unlike a doctor’s office or a medical centre, our practice will only contain healthy people!

Dental Implants

A dental implant can be used to replace badly damaged or missing teeth completely, from root to crown.  Sometimes, an existing tooth is so badly damaged and decayed that there is no usable parts of the tooth left.  The process starts with a titanium implant that takes the place of the tooth root and is securely placed inside the jaw where it fuses with the bone. To the top of the implant, a tooth crown is attached which is the part of the tooth you will see. It is made to fit in perfectly with your existing teeth, both in shape and colour.
