What are dental implants exactly?

Dental implants are used to support one or more false teeth, and act as replacement tooth roots. They’re made from titanium, which is lightweight and strong and, since this metal is biocompatible, isn’t rejected by the body. Instead, over a period of 3 to 6 months, the surrounding bone and soft tissues fuse with it, so it becomes a permanent fixture in the mouth. Once this has happened, the implant(s) can be topped with a single crown or dental bridge, or stabilise dentures and prevent them from becoming loose.

Here at Woonona Dentists we use high quality implant brands from leading manufacturers including MIS, Southern Implants, and Straumann, which have proved to be successful and reliable over many years.

What are the procedures involved in in dental implant surgery?

Consultation

As in any dental procedure, we need you to attend a consultation in order to determine whether dental implants are a suitable restoration solution for you. Using the latest intraoral cameras and digital X-rays including CBCT scan referral, we’ll determine whether you have sufficient bone density to support the implants. In some cases, our dentist will recommend a bone graft prior to dental implants, to increase the width and depth of bone in the implant area.

First Appointment

Our visiting implantologist dentist, Dr Shabbir Kermali will place your dental implants chairside. He can also use IV sedation if you’re a nervous patient – but you do not need to have IV sedation for this procedure. Prior in-depth planning using 3-D computer technology allows for a shorter surgery time and more accurate placement. The gums will be opened up and the implant/s placed. Once this is done, the gums are sutured, and you’ll be sent home to recover. The actual implant placement usually takes less than 30 minutes!

Second Appointment

Once the dental implants have fused with the bone in a process known as osseointegration, you’ll need a second visit to assess the stability of the dental implant and to take an impression for the dental crown(s) or bridge.This will be done by Dr. Beena Kurian, our experienced Principal Dentist.

Third Appointment

During this appointment, the crown(s) or bridge are screwed/cemented firmly in place to the stable implant, and the restoration is completed.

Depending on the individual patient situation, the dental implant procedure takes from 3 to 9 months to complete.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • Dental implants put a halt to the bone loss which naturally occurs when a tooth is lost. While replacing teeth, dental implants also help preserve the jaw, maintaining its shape and density
  • The facial structures are supported and indirectly, the soft tissues, gums, cheeks, and lips are too
  • Bite functionality is restored, meaning a person can eat all of their favourite foods as they used to before
  • Dental implants are easy to maintain by brushing and flossing, as you would do for your natural teeth
  • Dental implants feel, look, and act like natural teeth
