About Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

An implant is made of titanium alloy. They are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.

Evaluation

If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, schedule a consultation with one of our Periodontists. We will address your specific needs and considerations. Our team will work closely with you to ensure you have a pleasant experience. We may request that you have 3D scan prior to your consultation which helps with diagnosis and treatment planning. For your convenience we have a 3D scanning machine available at our practice in Malvern.

Procedures

Placement of dental implants within your jawbone involves surgery. The implant/s provide the foundation for a restoration to be placed on top of them. The time period between implant placement and restoration varies for each individual. Placement may occur anywhere from 6 weeks (immediate) to 6 months (delayed). If a restoration is not placed immediately on the implant a transitional prosthesis may be made for you to wear straight away so that you are not left without teeth during the healing period. Healing time following surgery varies from person to person and is based on a variety of factors. These will be explained to you at the time of your consultation.

When we have  confirmed integration of the implant, you will be referred back to your dentist/specialist to start making your new teeth. An impression will be taken and the final prosthesis fabricated. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily lives.
