What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a revolutionary method of replacing teeth that involves tiny titanium 'screws' that are inserted into your jawbone via a minimally invasive surgical procedure. Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or even all of your teeth, depending on your specific situation.

As you may know, each of our natural teeth has a crown (the part that is used while eating) and a root (the portion that is not visible and connects the tooth to the jaw bone). In order to provide the most comfortable result, a dental implant closely resembles these natural components.

Each implant is made up of a crown (the top section of the implant tooth), an implant fixture consisting of a small titanium screw which connects the crown to the jaw and the abutment, which connects to the crown. This material used in each dental implant is highly biocompatible with your natural jawbone material, and over a period of months these titanium dental implants are fully integrated into your jaw, forming a permanently solid foundation for prosthetic tooth replacements such as crowns.

Dentist in Yokine: Advantages of dental implants

There are many advantages to implants from Tuart Hill Dental near Yokine including:

  • An effective solution to tooth loss
  • Replace your missing tooth or teeth with beautiful, all-porcelain crowns using the latest materials and techniques
  • Restore your bite by preventing your natural teeth from moving from its original position
  • Unlike a bridge procedure, adjacent teeth do not have to be shaved down
  • They help retain bone structure and gum tissue
  • Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, most implants can last a lifetime.
  • Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing your dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep your dentures in place.

Who can benefit?

Anyone who is healthy enough to have a basic dental extraction can be recommended for a dental implant. Patients should have healthy gums and sufficient bone to support the implant. They must also be committed to good oral health and regular dentistry visits.

Individuals who smoke heavily or have chronic diseases, such as diabetes, should be treated on an individual basis. If you are thinking about implants, contact our dentists at Tuart Hill Dental in Perth to see if they are appropriate for you.

Our process

Stage 1: Personalised treatment plan

A treatment plan specific to your needs must be prepared before a dental implant is placed. This generally includes an oral examination during which your dentist will acquire x-rays, impressions, scans, or photos as needed. Our experienced dentists will go through your proposed treatment plan in detail to ensure that you understand what is involved.

Stage 2: Implant placement (surgical phase)

We'll refer you to a specialist for the implant's initial (surgical) phase, which will be performed by your surgeon. This team approach allows for centralized treatment based on the implant option that is ideal for you. The surgeon will then insert the tooth root implant, which is a small titanium post, into the bone socket of the missing tooth. The implantation site, where the implanted metal screw is inserted, heals around the titanium screw in a process known as osseointegration. The healing process will take around 6 to 12 weeks.

Stage 3: Crown placement

At this stage you will return to our clinic for the final part of your treatment in which your new dental implant crown will be fitted. To make your new tooth or teeth, we take impressions of your teeth, which are sent to our highly experienced dental technicians who then fabricate a replacement tooth, called a crown. This is then attached to the abutment. The crown is made to match the colour of your new teeth to your natural teeth. Because the implant is secured within the jawbone, the replacement teeth look, feel, and function just like your own natural teeth. 

Stage 4: Long-term maintenance

Dental implants require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. We recommend scheduling a six-month exam and hygiene session to keep the tissues around your teeth implants healthy.

What is the recovery time?

A dental implant usually takes around one to three months for the healing process to be finished. This time varies depending on a range of factors, including your age and health issues, the kind of procedure performed, how many teeth were impacted in addition to any problems that may develop during or after the treatment.

How much do dental implants cost?

Implants from Tuart Hill Dental start at $3,900, depending on your insurance coverage, the number of implants required, and the type of dental implant you choose. Before proceeding with the procedure, your dentist will discuss all costs with you.
