Dental Implants Kellyville
Experience Long-Lasting Tooth Replacement
At Kellyville Smiles, we provide a full range of services to suit your every need. If you’re missing a tooth, you’ve probably thought about replacing it. Dental implants are a state-of-the-art solution. They allow you to eat, speak and smile with ease, without ever having to consider the stability of your tooth replacement!
What Is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are titanium screws that are used to recreate the function of a tooth root. They’re surgically placed into the jawbone to restore the missing tooth in that area.
A few months after placement (which allows adequate time for bone to fuse with the implant surface), we attach a false tooth made of ceramic or porcelain to replicate the lost tooth. This process can be used for single or multiple tooth replacement, as well as full-arch restoration. In the instance of multiple teeth, we use pairs of implants to support a multi-tooth bridge.
Digitally Guided Implant Surgery
To improve the success of your implant surgery and ease recovery, the team at Kellyville Smiles uses digitally guided placement methods. Such measures ensure a minimally invasive and predictable experience.
For digital mapping, we order a 3D scan of your jaws and take an impression of your arch. From there, we plan the exact placement of each implant that is being installed. The digital replica allows us to work around your current bone anatomy and positioning of the missing teeth.
We send this information to our lab, which creates a surgical guide that helps us precisely place each implant in the desired position. The guided surgery is a “keyhole” procedure that is quite comfortable. Only local anaesthetic is needed, but additional sedation options are also available. Getting dental implants is usually easier than what most people expect it to be.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
Although there’s no guaranteed life expectancy, a properly maintained dental implant has the potential to last the rest of your life. To ensure success, you should brush and floss implants daily as you would any other tooth.
Implants can also be used to stabilise removable dentures, for added support throughout the day. If you find that your prosthesis is constantly moving or requires adhesive to feel comfortable, a retained overdenture could be a better option.
Implants are great for anyone with missing teeth who has healthy bone and gum tissue in that area. If you lack the right bone or gum material, however, you may have the option to complete a graft first. When that procedure has healed, you’ll be able to proceed with having a dental implant placed.
Dental implants aren’t just for seniors, either. There are plenty of reasons you can lose your teeth earlier in life, in which dental implants may be a great choice for tooth replacement.
At least two appointments at our practice are needed to complete your treatment for getting a dental implant. At the first (following a consultation to ensure you’re a candidate), we will place the implant. Then, a healing period is allowed, ensuring that the surgical site looks good. Once healed, you can return to have your chosen restoration placed on the implant.
You have three options when it comes to dental implants, making them suitable for an array of concerns: crowns, bridges or dentures. Crowns are suitable for people who wish to replace just one or two teeth. Bridges are a good idea if you have two or more missing teeth. Dentures are suitable for people who are missing most or all of their teeth.
The first step is simple—you can schedule for a free consultation with our dentist. We’ll evaluate you and talk about your options and whether dental implant treatment is the best way to get the outcomes you’re hoping for.
