Dental Implants at Artarmon Dentists

Illustration of dental implantAre you missing teeth? You may be embarrassed about showing off your smile and have low self-confidence. It isn’t just about aesthetics, however. The other teeth in your mouth don’t have the support they need when a tooth is missing. They can drift out of place, resulting in crooked teeth or even tooth loss. Your bite is affected, too, which can mean that you have a sore jaw joint and pain in the surrounding muscles.

With a dental implant, you can restore your missing teeth. It is the latest technique, providing a solution that appears and functions just like a normal tooth. The many benefits of dental implants include:

  • They integrate with the bone for a long-lasting result
  • Have a high success rate
  • Can replace one tooth, several teeth or all teeth
  • Don’t affect the health of any remaining teeth

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt to have dental implants?

The implant procedure at Artarmon Dentists is done under local anaesthesia. Our dentists follow a philosophy of minimising your pain and focusing on your comfort at all times. When your anaesthesia has worn off, you may experience slight discomfort. It can be easily addressed with pain medication.

How do you care for a dental implant?

You need to brush and floss your dental implant just like you would a regular teeth. If not, you may have dental problems such as gum disease that develop. You should attend your checkups every six months with us so that we can check on them and teach you how to properly care for your implant.

How long will it take to get the implant?

The procedure typically takes less than an hour. We’ll have a couple of follow-up appointments to check on how your implant is integrating with your jawbone. When the area has healed, we can place your crown, bridge or denture on the implant.

How long does a dental implant last?

One of the greatest advantages of dental implants is that it’s one of the longest-lasting restorations available. Since it integrates into your jawbone, an implant operates just like a real tooth. If properly cared for, it can last for your lifetime!

How much does a dental implant cost?

The cost of your implant will vary depending on how many you need and whether you have a crown, bridge or denture affixed to it. It’s a wise investment when you consider how long it will last. All costs will be detailed at your consultation.
