Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants

You’re tired of wearing a denture or having to use a bridge. Your teeth look fake, and you don’t like the way they feel in your mouth.
Imagine having a permanent, natural-looking tooth replacement that feels just like your original teeth. Implants are designed to look and feel like natural teeth, so you can enjoy eating the foods you love again. And since they’re made of titanium, they won’t break or wear down over time.

Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots made out of titanium that are inserted into the bone of the jaw. An artificial replacement tooth, usually a dental crown, is placed on top of the implant to replace the missing tooth. Dental implants are excellent alternatives to dentures or bridges for single or multiple missing teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

The majority of people are eligible for dental implants. They are an ideal option if the following factors apply:

  • The patient is in good enough oral health to undergo extractions or oral surgery.
  • The patient does not have any significant medical conditions.
  • The patient’s gums are healthy.
  • The bone material in the jawbone is sufficient to hold the implant.

If a person does not have the necessary bone density to support a dental implant, bone grafting can be performed before implant placement. In addition, there are other factors to consider, such as habits affecting oral health (smoking, grinding teeth) and chronic health conditions (heart disease, diabetes). Your dental hygiene and regular dental check-ups should also be part of your commitment. Each patient’s situation must be evaluated individually, so if you’re considering dental implants, call Gateways Dental Centre at (08) 9498 6000 to schedule an appointment or visit our Cockburn dental clinic.

If you require dental implants but do not have enough jawbone, bone grafting may be the answer. Bone grafting is a reconstructive procedure that increases bone volume in a part of the jaw that has lost bone or needs additional support.

You must be in good dental health in order to be a good candidate for dental implants. Gum disease causes tissue and bone to deteriorate and disintegrate.

Your jawbone must be sturdy and wide enough to support the implant during implant treatment safely. The implant must be entirely surrounded by gum tissue. As a result, you won’t be able to get dental implants if you have active gum disease. You might be a candidate for a bone graft, though.

After a bone graft procedure is completed and you have had time to recuperate, you will most likely be a better candidate for a dental implant. Call Gateways Dental Centre at (08) 9498 6000 or visit our dental practice for a comprehensive evaluation of your suitability for dental implants or a bone graft procedure.

Yes, a dental implant resembles a natural tooth in its appearance, feel, and functionality.

The root of a missing tooth is replicated by surgically implanting a dental implant into your jawbone. Dental implants are constructed of biocompatible titanium and are implanted into the jawbone to support artificial teeth.

Dental implants integrate entirely into human bone, with living bone growing around the titanium surface to keep them in place. These implants can then support fixed crowns and bridges. They can also be used to keep a loose or painful denture from moving around.

Most dental implant treatments take place over the course of several months, involving several dental exams and procedures.

Before surgery, x-rays and scans are taken to determine the current status of your oral structure and jaw bone. Before the dental implant operation, your teeth and gums will undergo a comprehensive exam. Your mouth must be in excellent condition for surgery. Your dentist will make sure you don’t have any cavities or gum disease.

After that, you’ll be given local anaesthesia before having your damaged or infected tooth extracted. The titanium implant will then be screwed into place and tightly secured to prevent debris from penetrating the area. It will fuse with the bone in three to six months. The term for this process of bone fusing is “osseointegration”.

Upon stabilization and osseointegration of the implant, your dentist will install the abutment. This will form the foundation for replacement teeth.

Your dentist can begin the procedure of getting your dental crown made once your mouth has fully recovered. To achieve the best fit, dental imprints will be taken, and the dentist will mould the implant tooth to match your existing tooth structure.

You will have to return to the dental office for the crown placement once it’s ready. Your dentist will screw or cement the artificial tooth into place.

Dental implant healing times vary depending on your medical and dental history. Other factors that affect your recovery time include the state of your jaw bone prior to surgery, the type of implant surgery you underwent, and the number of teeth replaced. Depending on your circumstances, this process could take anything from a few days to a few weeks. The entire healing time for the gums and bones is three to six months.

Titanium alloys are used in the majority of dental implant operations. These implants are deemed safe because titanium is a biocompatible substance. Titanium implants can be accepted and used by the body. Unlike other metals, it is durable, does not irritate your jaw or gums, and is absorbed by your bones as if it were a natural component of your body.

A titanium dental implant is not recommended if you are allergic or sensitive to metals. An alternative dental treatment would be implants made of other dental materials like zirconia, which is also biocompatible and nearly metal-free.

Your body will need time to recuperate after your dental implant treatment. During recovery, you may experience some soreness around the implant location, but this will pass in a few days. Pain medications and antibiotics will be prescribed following the dental procedure.

During the healing process, it’s typically best to stay away from hard foods. Avoid putting your mouth or fingers near the implant. For the first 48 hours, avoid intense exercise such as jogging or going to the gym. Stay away from alcohol, coffee, and smoking to get the best benefits.

The actual cost of dental implants varies depending on a number of factors, including how many teeth must be replaced and whether a bone graft is required. A simple dental implant might cost anything from $3,000 to $5,500 per tooth. If you need a bone graft, a single dental implant can cost up to $11,500.
Following successful implant placement, it is critical to practice a good dental hygiene regimen to protect your investment. Brush and floss your implants on a regular basis, just as you would your natural teeth, to avoid plaque and calculus build-up and potential issues. We also recommend regular dental check-ups to aid in their upkeep. Implants that are correctly cared for will survive for many years, though repairs may be necessary over time.
