Dental Implants in Westmead

Patient in dental chairHave you ever wondered what your smile might look like if that missing tooth wasn’t missing? There are several ways to fill that gap with a “tooth” that looks and feels exactly like your other teeth.

One popular and high-tech way to restore missing teeth is through dental implants. These are used as an alternative to dentures and bridges. Why? Because they have many advantages, including a completely natural appearance, convenience and the ability to maintain bone mass – a quality that makes additional tooth loss far less likely.

What Are Dental Implants?

Implants are made up of a titanium screw and a post that is covered with a crown, bridge or denture. We place the implant into the jawbone where it replaces the tooth root. After several months, the implant attaches to the bone, looking and “acting” like a natural tooth.

What to Expect

A patient needs to be evaluated to ensure enough bone mass is available to secure the implant. Impressions are taken to provide the necessary mould for a customised implant.

When it’s time to affix your implant, we’ll incorporate an anesthetic so that you don’t feel a thing and remain calm and comfortable the entire time. Once the implant is firmly embedded into the bone, a post is attached to it. Then, the doctor creates a permanent tooth replacement.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants can last for more than 10 years when maintained properly.

Why choose a dental implant over a crown?

Crowns are helpful for repairing broken or cracked teeth, but implants are used for replacing an entire missing tooth. Individual tooth replacement includes both an implant and a crown for total tooth reconstruction.

How long is the recovery period after getting a dental implant?

Most people recover within 1-3 weeks of having their dental implant placed. The minimally invasive procedure can be performed with numbing medication and no sedation is needed.
It’s important to remember that your new implant will look and function like your natural teeth. This means you’ll be able to chew easily and speak properly, with the added bonus of having a new, beautiful tooth to complete your smile.
