Dental Implants for Permanent Teeth Replacement

Dental implants are common cosmetic dental procedures and range from a single tooth replacement to your whole dentition.  Dental implants can restore tooth and mouth functionality. Care Dental Camberwell offers a wide range of dental implant procedures to replace and fix missing teeth. Our dental implant services can provide a permanent solution that can restore your beautiful smile and confidence.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a type of dental fixture that replace the natural tooth with an artificial version. Dental implants attach to your jaw and integrate into the bone, creating a permanent and lasting bond. Dental implants can replace missing teeth and act as mounts for bridges,crowns or dentures.

Dental implants are an important component of cosmetic dentistry. About 5.6% of Australians have at least one dental implant.

Types of Dental Implants

Endosteal implants are the most common type and involve a titanium implant in the jawbone that serves as a mount for the artificial tooth crown.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental implants are a good choice for patients who have broken/missing teeth or are not comfortable with other dental procedures (i.e., crowns, bridges, etc.). Patients with insufficient jawbone mass or other health conditions may not be good candidates for implant procedures.
Like any procedure, dental implants do carry some risks. Short term post-operative pain and discomfort are common side effects of surgery, and there is a small risk of infection at the incision site. Your dentist will provide post-procedure care instructions to minimize risks and manage wound healing.
Dental implants are permanent teeth replacement solutions and you can never get decay with an implant! These implant titanium posts integrate into your the jawbone, creating a permanent bond for the mount. However, just like your natural teeth, you can get gum disease around them if there is inadequate oral hygiene practice. The top crown part of the fixture on average lasts about 15 to 20 years, since it is subjected to everyday natural function and wear & tear. Overall, your implants will last longer if you eat with care and maintain good oral hygiene.
No, dental implants are not supposed to be removable. However, dentists can perform procedures to remove dental implants if they deteriorate or do not integrate properly. However in some circumstances, you can have removable dentures sitting over permanent implants.
Unfortunately, there are no “metal-free” dental implants. All approved dental implant surgery techniques utilise some kind of metal, such as titanium. These metals are medical-grade and highly biocompatible, meaning they naturally integrate with the body and will not cause metal toxicity or other harm. Dental implants are the same type of metal used for knee or hip replacements.
Dental implant procedures have two stages. In the first, the dentist will place the titanium mount into the jawbone. After the site heals, they will install the artificial crown in the next stage. The actual healing time will depend on the quality and quantity of bone in the area.
