Dental Implants

Illustration of dental implantDental 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.

Implants are great for anyone with missing teeth who has healthy bone and gum tissue in that area.

Digitally Guided Implant Surgery

To improve the success of your implant surgery and ease recovery, 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.

What Are the Benefits of Implants?

Implants offer many advantages over other types of tooth replacement strategies. Some of the biggest ones include:

  • A permanently fixed appliance
  • Non-invasive to adjacent teeth
  • Support natural facial profile and structures
  • Healthier for your bone
  • Longer-lasting results
  • Appropriate for single or multiple teeth
  • Stronger than other restorations

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.
