What are dental implants?

MyLocalDentists icon page

Dental implants are a viable and ideal option for people who have lost one or more teeth due to a failure of endodontics, periodontal diseases, injuries etc. They are made up of an abutment, a dental crown, and a biocompatible screw. Dental implants function to give a long-lasting and natural-looking replacement tooth by replacing the lost tooth’s root.

Your body will heal around the dental implant after it has been placed, making it a natural component of your anatomy. Once you have implants, you won’t have to worry about replacing them again because they are a long-lasting solution for lost teeth.

Benefits of dental implants

Permanent Replacement
Implant failure does happen occasionally, but it is almost always preventable. Dental implants can easily last you your entire lifetime if you adopt oral hygiene habits like daily flossing and brushing and going to the dentist for regular cleanings and checkups.
Natural Appearance
Dental implants are designed to create healthy and beautiful smiles. The sensation and functionality of dental implants are identical to those of natural teeth.
Restoration of Functionality
When teeth are missing, it might not be easy to talk and chew food. Being fixed to your jawbone, dental implants give you the capacity to chew and speak in the same way as a natural tooth does.

Preservation of Facial Structure
Our Ryde dentist can use dental implants to protect your jawbone and stop the neighbouring teeth from shifting. When teeth are lost, the remaining teeth in your mouth shift, compromising the overall structure of your face.

Ryde Dental Implants Procedure

A thorough evaluation and the creation of a treatment plan are the initial steps. The dental implant treatment will start after the initial assessment.

A dental implant post is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to heal. The implant will fuse or “osseointegrate” with the bone during the healing process to create a sturdy foundation for the prosthesis that will be placed on top.

This might happen in a matter of weeks or months. An abutment that goes through the gum tissue is screwed onto the dental implant after it has been integrated.

The finished prosthesis (a denture with several teeth, a bridge, or a single tooth) is then connected to the abutment. The crown is joined to the abutment once it is complete.

Frequently Asked Questions

MyLocalDentists icon page
What should I stay away from, following my implant treatment?
Consume only cold beverages and wait to eat until the effect of the local anaesthetic has waned. For the first day, stay away from hot drinks and meals. Avoid touching the dental implant area with your tongue or fingers. For the first two days, avoid vigorous exercise, such as jogging or going to the gym.
Can you wear your dentures after treatment?
If your denture covers the surgery site, avoid wearing it as much as possible for the first week, to protect the area during the initial healing stages. Always remove your dentures at night.
Will I experience pain after the dental implant surgery?
Pain shouldn’t be a significant issue. Any oral surgery may leave you with some soreness for a few days, but this is easily treatable with analgesics (painkillers). You should take them as directed consistently for the first two days following surgery.
Will the area around the implant swell or bruise?
After your treatment, you can experience some bruising or swelling; this peaks typically two to three days later. Both are normal and will go away independently in a few days. You can use ice packs wrapped in a towel to minimise swelling. Hold on to your cheek area for 10 minutes at a time, followed by a break of 20 minutes.
Are there any other options for replacing missing teeth?
Porcelain veneers, dental bridges and crowns, and dentures are other dental options if you have a missing tooth.
Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
