Improve your mouth’s function and your confidence with dental implants

Losing a tooth can be a very stressful and emotional event. At The Dentist at 70 Pitt Street, we do everything we can to prevent this from happening to you. When we can’t avoid an extraction, or where you may be missing a tooth from childhood, rest assured that it does not mean you have to learn to chew with fewer teeth or smile with a ‘gappy’ smile. We can replace your missing tooth. There are a few options for you and it’s best you have a chat with our Dentist to see which option suits your situation. One of the options is to fill the gap with a dental implant or a ‘bionic tooth’.

Is it Right for You?

Dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone, where they serve as the roots of missing teeth. Because the titanium in the implants fuses with your jawbone, the implants won’t slip, make noise or cause bone damage the way fixed bridgework or dentures might. And the materials can’t decay like your own teeth that support regular bridgework can.

In general, dental implants may be right for you if you:

  • Have one or more missing teeth
  • Have a jawbone that’s reached full growth
  • Have adequate bone to secure the implants or are able to have a bone graft
  • Have healthy oral tissues
  • Don’t have health conditions that will affect bone healing
  • Are unable or unwilling to wear dentures
  • Want to improve your speech
  • Are willing to commit several months to the process
  • Don’t smoke tobacco

What to Expect During
Dental Implant Treatment?

Surgical stage:

  • Remove the hopeless tooth.
  • Placement of the titanium fixture (dental implant) into the toothless space.
  • At the end of this stage, the fixture is invisible or barely visible in the mouth.
  • Some people choose to be sedated during this procedure. Often called sleep dentistry.

Like any surgery, dental implant surgery could have some minor complications. However, problems are very rare, and if they do occur, they’re usually easily treatable. The most common side effect is pain or infection at the implant site. This can be avoided with proper aftercare, which we will talk you through. Though the process takes several months, the results are worth the wait.

Healing stage:

The dental implant has to integrate into the bone tissue and this takes 3-6 months. If your missing tooth is in your smile we place a temporary tooth or denture while you are awaiting your permanent implant crown.

Restorative stage:

Placement of an implant crown over the titanium fixture (dental implant). This stage requires two visits and is done at The Dentist. The first visit is to take an impression and the second is to place the custom-made implant crown. At the end of this stage, the toothless space is filled with a natural-looking tooth.
