If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants provide a permanent, natural-looking solution.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an artificial tooth root made of titanium or zirconia. They are surgically placed into your jawbone. They act as an anchor for a replacement tooth or bridge. Once the implant fuses with your jawbone through osseointegration, our dentists can attach a crown. This crown matches the look and function of your natural teeth.

The Dental Implant Procedure

At Totalcare Dental and Dermal, we follow a comprehensive multi-step process for dental implants:

  • Consultation: During your initial visit, we’ll examine your mouth and take X-rays to determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants. Our team will create a customised treatment plan based on your needs.
  • Surgery: In this outpatient procedure, we’ll make an incision in your gum to expose the jawbone and precisely place the titanium implant. You may experience some minor swelling and discomfort, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
  • Healing and Osseointegration: Over the next few months, the implant will fuse with your jawbone through osseointegration, creating a strong foundation for your replacement tooth.
  • Attaching the Restoration: Once the implant has fully integrated, we’ll attach a customised crown, bridge, or denture to the implant, restoring your smile’s appearance and function.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental implants painful?

You may experience some minor discomfort and swelling after the implant surgery, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. The procedure itself is performed under local anaesthesia to minimise any pain or discomfort.

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. The titanium implant itself is designed to be a permanent part of your jawbone, while the crown may need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years due to normal wear and tear.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Most adults in good general health with sufficient jawbone density are candidates for dental implants. During your consultation, our dentists will evaluate your oral health and discuss any potential risks or concerns.

How do I care for dental implants?

Dental implants require the same care as your natural teeth. Brush and floss regularly, and visit our Bondi Junction clinic every six months for professional cleanings and check-ups.
