Dental Implants are the Gold Standard when it comes to replacing teeth. Dental implants can be used to restore single teeth, multiple teeth, or even to stabilize dentures. The adjacent teeth don’t need to be damaged at all when using them, and the best part – they look and feel almost exactly like your original teeth. If you’re looking for dental implants in Perth, give us a call today!
For individuals wanting a more natural smile without worrying about removing dentures every night, dental implants are one solution that’s growing in popularity around Perth, Australia. Dental implants are the gold standard in replacing missing teeth. They are unique because they can almost completely restore the feeling of having your original tooth without having to damage any of the adjacent teeth, or having to wear a denture or plate!
As you may have many questions regarding the dental implant process, we’ve summarized the process below.
How Dental Implants Work
When teeth are lost for whatever reason, whether it be trauma, decay, or gum disease, replacing them will restore form, aesthetics and confidence to your smile.
Dental implants consist of an artificial tooth made of porcelain that is connected to your jawbone with a titanium fixture.
There are two parts to the dental implant procedure – surgical and restorative.
The surgical component is completed by a highly qualified periodontist – a specialist that is trained to place implants with the most advanced techniques. They place thousands of these a year and are highly experienced. The titanium implant is attached to your jawbone in this surgery, and we wait for healing. While we wait, a temporary tooth is provided, so you can smile in the meantime!
After we confirm that the implant has healed and is firmly attached to the bone, we can begin restoring the implant. We take an accurate impression of the implant and the surrounding teeth, and from there, your new tooth will be fabricated by the dental laboratory using the strongest and most advanced porcelain materials.
Once completed, we attach the tooth to your implant, check that everything fits and off you go!
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Dental implants are usually best suited for patients who cannot get bridgework done, or who only need one or several teeth replaced. Other implant procedures, such as ‘all on 4’ implants which are essentially four sections of dentures anchored to a patient’s jaw in several places, may be a better option for those needing numerous teeth replaced.
A major advantage of having dental implants is their ability to bond to a patient’s jaw, and their incredible strength. Most dental implant procedures come with guaranteed work, meaning any repair work that needs done resulting from poor craftsmanship or implantation is covered.
