Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Missing teeth may leave you wondering about replacements. One of the best and most popular solutions to a missing tooth is a dental implant. Implants are an alternative form of prosthetic replacement to dentures or bridges and are a long-term solution when oral hygiene habits are performed regularly. Implants have an entirely natural appearance.


Implants are composed of a titanium screw and post that is then completed with a crown, bridge or denture depending on your needs. The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone where it replaces the natural tooth root. After a healing process, the implant attaches to the bone, functioning much like a regular root.

Frequently Asked
Questions About Implants

Dentures are a removable prosthetic appliance. One of the major benefits of dental implants is their representation of a permanent replacement for a missing tooth or multiple teeth.

Many patients prefer dental implants over dentures as implants appear and feel just like their natural teeth. Dental implants also aid in stabilising bone tissue, decreasing the risk of gum disease and minimising the chance of additional tooth loss. You can enjoy eating your favourite foods without any restriction as they support a natural bite.

Most patients can receive some type of dental implant, but some will first require additional procedures such as bone grafting. Your dentist will assess your oral health and determine if you can safely undergo dental implant surgery.

General dentists who have furthered their study with an implantology course are licenced to place implants. Our implant surgeons are highly skilled and employ only the best surgical techniques, maximising the success of your implants.

There are many factors to consider when questioning the price of an implant such as the number of implants being placed, the type of fixture and whether you possess private health insurance. A consultation will be able to provide you with an estimate of how much your treatment will cost.

We use local anaesthetic when placing implants, ensuring the procedure is as comfortable as possible for the patient. The majority of our patients report little to no pain during the surgery.

As the titanium screws are fused to your jawbone, dental implants are designed to last a lifetime when cared for properly. The visible portion of the implant (the crown) may need replacement between 5-15 years.
