Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great way to replace a single tooth or a number of teeth. The implant is simply a hollow metal screw that is placed into the jaw bone and allowed to fuse. A connector (called an abutment) is then inserted into the implant in order to connect the device into the mouth. A custom made crown (single tooth) or bridge (multiple teeth) is then added to the connector to replicate the tooth/teeth replaced within the mouth

Sounds easy? The implant will require bone to fuse hence the availability of bone and healthy gums are required. Unfortunately this will involve surgery to place the implant and time for healing to occur. This may require one or more surgical appointments and at least 2 months to allow healing. On completion of healing, the custom-made crown can then be inserted. This will require additional visits but most patients tolerate these visits very well to the extent that treatment is usually completed without anaesthetic.

In order to maintain the highest possible standards, we use genuine branded equipment and materials. The prosthetic work is carried out in Australia by Australian dental technicians. Rest assured that the materials and precious metals used meet Australian standards.
