Dental Implants

Dental implants are the optimal choice for replacing missing teeth. We have over 15 years experience of placing and maintaining dental implants at our Neutral Bay surgery. They provide an excellent functional and aesthetic outcome for a majority of patients. Implants are essentially as good as having a natural smile all over again!

A Conservative Treatment Choice

Thanks to the latest technology and research, modern dental implants are more conservative than past tooth replacement options. The only requirement to have dental implants is that you are in good health and have adequate and healthy bone.

When possible, we always want to preserve natural teeth. Unfortunately, that’s not always an option. It’s in these cases that dental implants are a very viable and a more common tooth replacement option.

Your Implant Experience

We’ll take an X-ray of the area needing to be restored and determine if it’s adequate for an implant to be installed. Your overall general health is important too. Be sure to let us know if you’re taking any medications or have recently been hospitalized.
If you’re a candidate for implants, we’ll plan the initial placement procedure. The visit is minimally invasive, with us creating an opening in the bone and placing the implant down into it. A few small X-rays are taken as we go. Only a small amount of local anaesthetic is needed! As the area heals, your body integrates with the implant surface.

About four months later, we’ll check your implant is fully integrated. At that point, we’ll affix your permanent implant crown on top.

Types of Implant Restorations

Implants can be used for any number of missing teeth. Most people get single implants for individual teeth. In those cases, we craft a porcelain crown to fit on top of the abutment. When you smile, the implant and crown blend in with your overall bite.

But when there are multiple missing teeth, we can use a multi-tooth bridge that’s anchored on either end by implants (instead of you needing a partial denture).

It’s also possible to anchor a full-arch prosthesis. So, if you need help stabilising a denture or want an alternative to a removable appliance, there are options available.

Caring for Your New Smile

Getting dental implants is like having a natural smile all over again. All you need to keep them healthy is daily brushing and flossing. Pay particular attention to the gumlines, where plaque tends to be the thickest. Additionally, you’ll want to schedule a check and clean every six months.
