Are there any risks with dental implants?

The placement of dental implants is extremely predictable due to the advancement of the technology over the past 10 years. It is extremely rare that an implant doesn’t take to a person’s mouth. If this does occur, it is simply fixed with the positioning of a new implant.

What are dental implants made from?

Tooth loss can have a dramatic impact on a person’s life as it can not only affect physical appearance and the self-confidence to smile, but also has negative impacts on well-being and other dental and health issues such as:
  • Titanium, bone-integrated implant – inserted in the jawbone
  • Implant abutment – placed on top of the implant
  • Porcelain crown – positioned on top of the implant abutment to resemble a normal tooth

Who can get dental implants?

Dental implants are a potential option for anyone with missing teeth. People of any age are able to receive dental implants, however it is advisable that children and teens do not receive dental implants, as during these stages their facial structure and dental bones are still developing.

The ideal time for people to get dental implants would be soon after tooth loss or extraction. Dental implants have still been positioned effectively years after to tooth loss. The most important factor is having enough healthy bone in the jaw to support and surround the implant.

Considering dental implants?

Get a professional assessment with our trusted dentists to consider all your options.

Your dental implant treatment

The dental implant journey takes a while but we will support you each step of the way.

A treatment process will be determined in advance. Computer imaging of your teeth will be required to observe the condition of the bone. Computer imaging will also aid with creating three-dimensional footage of your mouth to ensure the appropriate placement of the dental implants.

Once the appropriate imaging has been completed you will return for another appointment to discuss treatment options. If you are satisfied with your treatment plan, our lab will create the surgical guide. The surgical guide allows us to place the implant accurately without needing to make an incision.

The titanium implant will be placed in the perfect position using the surgical guide so that the surrounding gum tissue can cultivate (grow) around your implant.

The bone surrounding the implant will merge naturally with the implant. This process can take 3-6 months however superficial healing will take a couple of weeks.

A temporary implant will be placed if the implant is in an area that is noticeable as this is only required for aesthetic reasons during the healing process. If the implant is in the back of the mouth, a healing abutment will be placed to encourage the gum to grow in a desirable position for the final crown.

Once the healing has finished, an impression of your dental implant and surrounding teeth will be taken in order for our labs to make the crown that will be attached to your implant.

Our ceramicist will construct a customised porcelain crown using the precise measurements used in the planning. The crown is connected to the abutment to resemble a brand new and healthy-looking tooth.

What limitations are there with dental implants?

In the long-term, there are no limitations for a person with dental implants, however there are a few minor restrictions within the first few weeks whilst the bone is healing. It is vital to steer clear of biting hard food during the first few weeks. After this, hard food can be slowly consumed until eventually your diet will be like normal.

How do I care for my dental implants?

We will show you the correct flossing techniques after we fit your implant crown. It is important to keep your implant clean. There are special types of floss used for cleaning dental implants. It is recommended that you brush and floss twice a day, as you would regularly. Visits to the dentist should also continue. This usually consists of 6 monthly check-ups for monitoring and cleaning.

How much do dental implants cost?

The price of dental implants can vary given the number of implant types and styles available. We place affordability at front of mind with a commitment to providing affordable dental implants in Penrith. We invite you for a consultation with our highly experienced dental implant practitioner so you can discuss all of your options.
