What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement that are screwed or anchored into your jaw. They are made out of a biocompatible material know as titanium. Once placed into the jaw, new bone will grow around the implant and anchor it to the jaw.

Your dentist will place a crown over the top of the titanium root form once the bone has firmed, to replace the missing tooth. The crown will be created to closely match your natural teeth.

Who Is A Candidate For Implants?

In order to be eligible for implant surgery, you should:
● Have available bone to anchor the implant
● Have healthy gum that are free of disease
● Ideally you should also be a non-smoker, but this is not a contra-indication for implant treatment

What Are The Advantages Of Dental Implants?

Implants are permanent. Unlike dentures, which can be removed, dental implants are the closest tooth replacement option to your natural teeth. They do not need to be removed before eating or sleeping. You do not have to worry about them moving around or falling out when you speak, or about them affecting how you pronounce certain words or sounds.

Dental implants in Hornsby can stimulate new bone growth. Once the implant has been placed, healing needs to take place, and a process called osseointegration will begin. This means that the implant fuses to your jawbone. When you have dentures, they sit above the gum line, so deterioration of the bone will occur over time. With implants this does not happen.

Dental implants can be used as a support structure for an implant supported bridge in a full arch case, or multiple implants can be used to replace multiple missing teeth.

Implants do not cause damage or wear and tear on other teeth in your mouth. This is in contrast to a bridge, where space needs to be created for the crowns to sit and hence require the supporting teeth to be cut back.

Implant works, look and feel exactly like any other teeth in your mouth.

What Can You Expect From The Dental Implant Procedure?

Your implant procedure will take place at our Hornsby dental implant centre over a few months, and there will be a few visits to the dentist in order to complete the process.

At your initial visit your dentist will inspect your mouth and take x rays of your jaw. This is important to determine the correct position and placement of the implant. He will also be able to see whether your jaw is healthy enough for the procedure and evaluate any risk factors for the procedure.

Your dentist will create a treatment plan and present you with a summary of costs.

Once approved you will have your first operation to place the implant in your jawbone. This is done under local anaesthetic. Piazza Dental offers various ways to make the procedure more comfortable, using sedation or the Wand painless injection.

You will need to wait a few months for your bone to grow around the implant site.

Once he is satisfied that the implant is stable your dentist will make the foundation for your replacement tooth. Then, he will make a cast of your mouth to create the artificial crown that goes on top. The crown is then cemented into place.

What Can You Expect After Implant Surgery?

The body does a very good job of healing itself and very little extra care is required during the post-operative phase. It is important that you maintain excellent oral hygiene and follow all of your dentist’s instructions.

Good oral hygiene is important to ensure that you do not develop an infection at the implant site.

How Much Can You Expect To Pay For Dental Implants?

The cost of your procedure is hugely dependant on your individual circumstances and the complexity of your procedure. Your dentist will discuss this with you in detail once he has examined your mouth and review relevant X-rays and CT scans.
