What are dental
implants?

Learn how dental implants work to restore oral function 

Dental implants are a revolutionary replacement for a missing tooth.  It is a human safe titanium screw that’s drilled into the jaw bone providing a stable foundation for a ceramic tooth crown to be locked permanently into place, giving full chewing capacity back to the area.  Dental implants are considered to be the next best alternative in place of a natural tooth.  Because they are a stand-alone structure, they don’t impact any other teeth and if well maintained with home care and regular visits to the dentist, it is the longest-lasting solution to filling in a gap.

If a patient has lost several teeth in one area of the mouth, a dental implant can be used to support a dental bridge – a long spanned ceramic unit in the same of multiple teeth that span across several teeth or gaps where teeth used to reside.  Dental implants can also be used to support partial or full dentures (false teeth).  Any patient who has suffered from the embarrassing moment their teeth fall out when talking or sneezing can become confident their denture will stay firmly in place with press studs that connect the denture to the implant that’s firmly fixed into the bone underneath.

Understanding your condition is the
key to making the right choices for you 

Yes! A Teeth implant provides an overall natural look and the same functionality as a natural tooth.

The required time for the dental implant varies primarily according to the techniques used by your dentist, and it also depends on the location at which the tooth is to be implanted. However, general surgery takes about one hour to complete. But if we talk about the whole procedure, which is done in steps, then it takes almost six months for an implant to be placed.

The dental implant life is directly proportional to the amount of care the patient takes of the implant. Assuming the patient takes proper care of the implant by regularly brushing and flossing, the implant screw can last as much as a lifetime.

Some of the common dental implant alternatives include bridges and dentures. Other tooth replacement options such as dentures will have to be replaced or repaired after a specific time. On the other hand, dental implants are designed to last for a very long period or, in some cases, even the rest of the patient’s life. This is one of the primary reasons dental implants are considered the best option out of all the teeth replacement options.

The dental implant procedure is a lengthy process. After the initial surgery, it may take months for the site to heal properly. If you are getting it done overseas, you can not go to your dentist anytime on short notice in case of any complications.  If your implant does not integrate or fails dentists in Australia may not be able to help you in your time of need due to different components, not available in Australia, being used to place your implant.
