What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a strong and small titanium screw which is placed into prepared sites in the jawbone, replacing your missing tooth root. After a short healing period, the bone grows onto the surface of the implant ( a process known as osseo-integration) so it can anchor a replacement tooth(crown) securely to the implant.

We also provide teeth cleaning, emergency dental treatment, and more. You can visit our clinic or give us a call for more information.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

  • Dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth.
  • Dental implants prevent the need to sacrifice healthy tooth structure from adjacent teeth as is required for a traditional bridge. There is no need to grind down adjacent healthy teeth.
  • Dental implants allow you to eat and speak with comfort and confidence. Not having to cover up holes in your smile with your hand or ensuring dentures don’t slip or loosen when laughing. Smiling and laughing are for the good times and should be enjoyed with confidence.
  • Time-tested results: for over 40 years, dental implants have been used successfully in millions of people worldwide as a treatment option for missing teeth. Success rates are extremely high and thirty year studies report that with the right oral and general health, 95% success rates are achievable.

What is Involved In The Implant Dentistry?

  • A thorough examination: During this FREE initial consultation, the dentist will perform a thorough dental examination, take photographs and x-rays of your dentition and discuss the treatment options. You will be asked to have a bone scan of the relevant jaw bone prior to your second visit.
  • Inserting the dental implant: The dental implant is placed into the jawbone. This is performed under local anaesthetics at our surgery. Instructions for postoperative care are given. Healing time depends on bone quantity, quality and the clinical situation.
  • Attaching the abutment: Once the implant has become osseo-integrated, it is uncovered and an abutment attached to it.
  • Fitting the crown: Your new artificial tooth (crown) is attached to the dental implant.The questions are:

What Can You Do About It?

Dental implants are a proven solution for people in good overall oral and systemic health who have lost one or more teeth due to periodontal disease, trauma or injury, or any other reason.

Dental Implants are one of the most predictable and conservative ways of replacing missing teeth with the best long term success.

Implants are basically artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jaw bone and are used to support the teeth/crowns.

Dental Implants look, feel and function like natural teeth and can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for. Dental implants are available in several different forms. The most common dental implants are called “root form implants”.

What are Your Options?

Root form implants are similar to teeth in that they mimic roots of teeth.

The implants are placed under the skin and into the bone at the first surgical appointment. This surgical appointment is performed in the dental practice under local anesthetics with or with out oral sedation. The dental implants are allowed to heal for a period of two (2) to six (6) months.

After this healing time the implants are exposed at a brief second surgical appointment prior to placing a post inside. The post becomes the extension to which a crown is attached. The total process tends to take a period of four (4) to seven (7) months.

What if I Don’t Do Anything?

Dental implants utilize small anchors made of a biocompatible metal called titanium, which are placed in the jawbone. Titanium does not decay and does not need root canal therapy. The anchors become securely embedded in the jaw as the bone grows around them over the first few months. Abutment posts are inserted into the anchors and carefully crafted replacement teeth are permanently attached to the posts, providing the recipient with natural looking and feeling teeth.

Dental Implants FAQs

Implants are a highly popular dental restoration option around the world. The cost of getting a single dental implant in Sunshine is between $5,000 to $7,000. Keep in mind that this is just the cost of the prosthetic and the procedure.

If you have a badly damaged tooth, it should be extracted before fixing the dental prosthetic. Also, a tooth-like crown will be mounted on the dental implant to work like your natural tooth. Hence, the overall price of your dental implants will depend on all these factors.

Dental implants are an excellent choice if you want your false tooth to function and appeal like your natural tooth. Dental implants are metallic screws that work like your natural tooth’s root and support the dental crown mounted on it.

Additionally, dental implants support your jawbone and prevent the risks of local jawbone loss. A dental implant in place of your missing tooth helps ensure good oral health and prevents the drifting of neighbouring teeth. Overall, dental implants have an excellent success rate and provide lasting results.

One of the biggest advantages of a dental implant is its durability. You can expect your implant to provide 20 years of service with minimal maintenance. With good oral hygienic practices, you can ensure the durability of your dental implant beyond 30 years.

Importantly, the prosthetic does not require any special care and maintenance and gives you consistent results with very limited chances of implant fail.

Dental implants do not get cavities as they are made from titanium, and the oral bacteria can’t break down the metal. Also, most dental crowns are made from porcelain or porcelain metal that can withstand most acid attacks.

While this is the case, you should still ensure excellent oral hygiene for lasting dental implants. The plaque and tartar deposits around your dental implants can lead to local jawbone loss, resulting in implant failure.

If you want a full-arch dental restoration, All-On-4 dental restoration is the best option for a complete smile. As the name suggests, the procedure requires just four implants to fix a full bridge on your jaw and help you get the perfect smile.

The procedure is a very popular and economical option as you just need to bear the cost of 4 implants. Similarly, the complexity of the procedure and associated pain is minimal as it guarantees a quicker recovery.

It is based on the condition of your tooth. If you have a tooth with extensive damage or cavities beyond the scope of a root canal, your dentist may suggest a dental implant option. However, if a root canal can save your tooth, your dentist will complete the root canal and help you retain your natural tooth.

Keep in mind that it is always the best option to keep your natural tooth when possible. Consult with your dentist to see if you can retain your tooth with a root canal procedure.
