What are dental implants?

MyLocalDentists icon page

Dental implants are one of the popular cosmetic dental treatments for missing teeth. Gum disease, tartar and plaque buildup, poor or lack of dental hygiene, and tooth decay are just some causes of tooth loss. Dental implants are needed when you have lost teeth but are unable to or do not want to get crowns, bridges, or dentures .

Because the effect of losing or removing a tooth and doing nothing can become a much bigger problem as time goes on, it is essential to replace a missing tooth. Our experienced dentists in Leichhardt recommend dental implants to patients who miss one or more teeth or even all of them.

Advantages of Tooth Implant

Dental implants with a crown are low-maintenance, requiring just good dental hygiene practice to ensure they last as long as possible.
Increased self-confidence
Implants can give you a beautiful smile, letting you smile and speak confidently.
Natural look
Dental implants are now indistinguishable from real teeth, thanks to contemporary technology and materials.
Dental implants can be fitted with a denture, bridge, or crown to serve as an artificial tooth. This allows you and our dentist to work together to come up with the most appropriate treatment plan for you.

Leichhardt Dental Implants Process

During the first stage of surgery, our Leichhardt dentist will give you local anaesthesia to numb your mouth. Once the medication takes effect, he will create a hole in your gum to reveal the bone.

Our dentist will utilise a drill after the incision to make room in the bone for the implant screw.

After this, you must wait for a few months for the bone and implant to bond together, to ensure there is a firm connection. You go through the second stage of the treatment when it heals.

Our dentist in Burwood will expose the implant again through a different incision during this next appointment. He’ll then attach the abutment and make an impression of the tooth to be crowned. You get your new crown during the last step.

Frequently Asked Questions

MyLocalDentists icon page
What should I avoid following dental implant surgery?
First of all, quit smoking. Smoking leads to gum recession and disease, weakening the dental implant structure over time. So, refrain from chewing tobacco or smoking. In addition, never use heat on your face unless directed to do so by our dentist. Heat could, unfortunately, cause the swelling to worsen. Avoid using straws. Using straws puts stress on your mouth, which can cause the blood clot that keeps the wound closed to loosen, resulting in additional bleeding and delayed healing.
Can my mouth reject a dental implant?
It is rare that an individual’s body will reject a dental implant. The dental implant is usually readily accepted by the jawbone. Rare sensitivities to the titanium used to create the implant are to blame for the few rejections. Also, if you don’t properly care for an implant after surgery, it could fail. Natural teeth eventually fall out without good dental hygiene. And implants are no exception. Dental care is essential for keeping good health. You can avoid gum disease and consequent structure failure by taking appropriate care of your dental implants and teeth.
What is the duration of the dental implant treatment?

The duration of the dental implant treatment depends on the following factors:

  • Whether you’ll need to have a tooth removed
    before getting an implant
  • How many teeth are involved
  • Teeth which are replaced
  • Your dental condition

Your mouth is restored with an implant in two stages by our dentist, and the full procedure can take three to nine months. It might take longer if you require bone grafts before our dentist places the posts.

Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner
