What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?
Implants can improve the appearance of your smile. They function and look like your natural teeth. Because they fuse to your jawbone they provide solid support.
Dental implants ensure you can speak and enunciate your words clearly. By contrast with dentures, implants mean you can speak with others without worry that your dentures might slip or fall out of place.
Implants enable you to eat with comfort too. Because they function like natural teeth you can bite and chew with the same degree of force you would with your other teeth.
Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants are permanent and are easy to keep clean and maintain in good condition.
Dental implants can last for a long time with good dental care and hygiene. They may last for the rest of your life and make for an excellent long term investment in your dental health.
What Can You Expect During The Implant Procedure?
First we will need to take an x-ray to check the condition of your jawbone. From the x-ray we can take the necessary measurements to ensure the procedure is well planned.
If you do not have enough jawbone we may recommend a bone graft before the implant procedure.
The next step is for the root of the implant to be embedded into your jawbone where the missing teeth or tooth used to be. As your jaw heals itself, it will integrate around the metal root. This can take a few weeks to complete.
Once we are satisfied that the root has integrated and will be strong enough to hold your new crown, the connecting piece or abutment is attached to the root.
Then we create a cast of your mouth, to make the new tooth. Your new tooth will be matched closely in shape, length and colour to your existing teeth, to ensure it blends in as closely as possible.
How Long Does The Procedure Take?
Your dentist will discuss the duration of the treatment when creating your treatment plan.
It will take a few months to fully recover from the procedure but once fully healed the majority of patients report an improved quality of life.
A high quality dental implant procedure, where it be for single or multiple implants, requires a high level of skill and experience. Contact our practice for a consultation today: (02) 9158 6753

Frequently Asked Questions
What are dental implants?

These fixtures are Australian approved and are made up of titanium to ensure the best results. First, you dentist a structure known as an abutment to your implant and then attaches your artificial tooth or teeth. The titanium used in dental implants fuses well with your jawbone, and the implants will not cause noise, slip or cause bone damage like dentures.
