An Introduction to Dental Implants

This state-of-the-art solution isn’t like any other tooth replacement solution available on the market today. Dental implants can be used to replace one, several or all your teeth to restore both function and aesthetics.

When you choose to have dental implants with us, you can feel comfortable knowing we use Straumann dental implants who are the world-leading in dental implant technology.

The dental implant itself is a titanium post that gets inserted into your jawbone. This is done during a surgical procedure by our dental implant expert, Dr Nick Mehta.

Your jawbone will accept the implant as normal tooth root and begin to grow around it. At this point, a crown, bridge or denture can be affixed to the implant, completing the process.

The Three-Phase Process for Dental Implants

The process of getting dental implants happens in three phases. Our goal is to ensure that you are provided with a seamless process when getting your implants. Each member of our team works to make sure that your visits go smoothly and that you are as comfortable as possible!

During your first visit, you’ll have a consultation with our dentist. They’ll discuss whether you’re a candidate for dental implants. If so, we can move forward with the implant placement.

Before the process of placing your implants can begin, our dentists determine if you’re a suitable candidate for the procedure. This takes place in a consultation appointment. Once your suitability has been ascertained, it’s time for the next phase.

During the implant placement, you’ll be under anaesthesia while the titanium implant/s are placed in your jawbone. We ensure that you’re comfortable and do our best to minimise any discomfort you’re in. After the procedure is completed, you’ll be given instructions on resting up so that you experience the best possible recovery.

We’ll monitor your recovery via several follow-up appointments. Once the surgical site has healed, the next phase begins.

The final phase of the process involves having a crown, bridge or denture affixed to your implant/s. And voila! Your new smile is ready!

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

If you are wondering whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants, we’ve got you covered!

Sometimes, there are people who may not be ideal candidates right away. This can be the case if, for example, your jawbone has worn down over time. This can result in needing a bone graft before you can move on with the dental implant process. Artarmon Dentists are here to guide you every step of the way.

To have all your questions answered and determine your suitability, book in a consultation with our expert team. There’s no time like the present to start smiling again.
