Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss. For many years the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. However, today, dental implants are available. They are made from titanium and replace the tooth root. They are attached to the jawbone to form a strong base for crowns and bridges, allowing you to use them as natural teeth. Compared with dentures, implants eliminate discomfort from moving and allow you to eat your favourite foods as normal.

Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implant treatment is performed in stages over several months

  • Your damaged tooth is removed
  • A specialist places the implant into the jaw and inserts a screw to prevent debris
  • 3 to 6 months later after the implant has fused with the jawbone the screw is removed and replaced with a post which will hold your new crown
  • Finally the dentist takes an impression and a crown is made that matches your teeth for colour and size. This procedure normally takes 30 minutes.
  • After the crown is made in the Dental Laboratory the dentist then adjusts and screws the crown onto the implant at the second visit.

Dental Implant Safety

We at Kedron Dental Centre have been restoring teeth with Dental implants for over 30 years. Implants are made of titanium which is biologically compatible with the human body. Studies have shown that the earliest patients, treated with these modern implants continue to enjoy healthy, stable smiles.

Risks involved

When placing implants there are usual surgical risks of infection and damage to nerves and blood vessels. Once healed the implant is subject to gum disease similar to natural teeth.

Quick FAQ's

What are the advantages of a dental implant treatment?

Currently, dental implants are the closest method of having as natural a tooth as possible when a tooth is missing. The teeth on either side are not damaged or cut. Once the body has integrated with the titanium implant, it should be permanent.

Implants help solve some of the problems that people may have with traditional dentures and bridges which rest on the surface of the gums. When natural teeth are extracted, the bone which held them in place begins to shrink. This can cause dentures to become uncomfortable and ill-fitting. As implants provide points of firm attachment for dental prostheses, they can help solve problems posed by traditional dentures. Many people have reported that dental implants are more comfortable, convenient and attractive than the dentures they had previously worn.

Patients also report biting and chewing are often very similar to biting and chewing with normal teeth.
