Dental Implants

What is an implant?

An implant is a titanium post surgically inserted into the jawbone to serve as an artificial tooth root. This implant fuses with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, providing a stable foundation for a replacement tooth, dental crown, bridge, or denture. Implants are commonly used to replace missing teeth and restore oral function and aesthetics.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Natural Apperance and Functionality

Implants closely resemble natural teeth in both appearance and function, allowing for comfortable chewing, speaking, and smiling.

Bone Preservation

By integrating with the jawbone, implants stimulate bone growth and help prevent bone loss, preserving facial structure and preventing the sunken appearance often associated with missing teeth.

Improved oral health

Unlike traditional tooth-supported bridges, implants do not require the alteration of adjacent teeth for support, preserving the integrity of natural teeth and promoting better oral health.

Enhanced confidence

Dental implants restore a patient's ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence, improving overall quality of life and self-esteem.

Long-Lasting

With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a durable and permanent solution for tooth replacement.

Frequently Asked Questions About Implants and All On 4 Dental Implants

The longevity of dental implants can vary depending on various factors such as the patient’s oral hygiene, overall health, and the quality of the implant placement. However, with proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last for decades, and in many cases, they can even last a lifetime.

Dental implants are a popular option for replacing missing teeth, but there are some downsides to consider before you decide if they are right for you.

  • Cost: Dental implants are more expensive option for replacing teeth. The cost can vary depending on the number of implants you need, the location of the implant, and the dentist’s fees.

    Surgery: Dental implants require surgery to place the implant in your jawbone. This surgery is typically performed by an oral surgeon or a periodontist. While the surgery is generally safe, there are risks associated with any surgery, such as infection and bleeding.
  • Healing time: It can take several months for the implant to fuse with your jawbone. During this time, you will need to wear a temporary restoration, such as a denture or bridge.

  • Not suitable for everyone: Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. You need to have healthy gums and enough bone in your jaw to support the implant. People with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or uncontrolled autoimmune diseases, may not be good candidates for dental implants.

  • Possible complications: Like any surgery, there are possible complications associated with dental implants, such as:

    • Infection
    • Nerve damage
    • Sinus problems

There are generally three main types of dental implants:

  • Endosteal implants: These are the most common type of dental implants, consisting of titanium screws that are surgically placed into the jawbone.

  • Subperiosteal implants: These implants are placed on top of the jawbone but beneath the gum tissue. They are often used in patients who have insufficient bone height for traditional implants.

  • Zygomatic implants: These implants are used in cases where there is minimal bone in the upper jaw, and they are anchored into the cheekbone (zygoma) rather than the jawbone.

The cost of dental implants in Australia, it can vary depending on several factors including the number of implants needed, the type of implant, the location of the dental clinic, and any additional procedures required.

  • Like in any surgery, there can be potential risks associated with it, like infection or implant rejection.
