What are Dental Implants?
As a strong base for supporting artificial teeth, dental implants allow the new teeth to look, feel and function as naturally as possible. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots similar in shape to screws that support replacement crowns, bridges or dentures. They are long lasting, made of a similar material to the titanium that is used for fixing broken arms and legs. Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone using aseptic techniques.
Types Of Dental Implants
There are many types of dental implants that can help you to achieve your goal of functional, beautiful-looking teeth to improve your quality of life. Here at Specialist Prosthodontics in Brisbane, we often work closely with other highly-trained dental specialists to provide patients with implant-supported prostheses. The reputable and high-quality implants that are available include Straumann, Dentsply, Nobel Biocare and Neoss dental implants.
Dental Implant Process
Before considering dental implants as a possible treatment, our Prosthodontist (one of the dental specialists) will first need to examine you and conduct a clinical assessment. After going through your options and ensuring that you are a good candidate for a dental implant, the full process for a single implant tooth replacement is typically:
- 3D X-ray assessment of your teeth
- Removal of existing tooth if required
- Placement of a dental implant
- Shade matching photographs and 3D Intra-oral scan
- Fitting of implant abutment and crown
- Optional mouthguard or splint to protect the tooth from grinding forces and to prevent unwanted tooth movement
All services for dental implants, crowns, bridges or dentures can be provided at our Brisbane Clinic, with an option for X-rays to be taken at Upper Mt Gravatt or Chermside.
For straightforward situations, our services will involve  appointments that will be planned around your needs. After placement of your dental implant, you may be able to return to work the next day after local anaesthesia. Recovery times may be longer for more complex situations.
