What are dental implants?

Dental implants are composed of a titanium screw that acts as the tooth root and a tooth crown that replaces your missing tooth. The screw takes time to fuse into your bone via a natural process called osseointegration, and this provides a strong foundation and secures the dental implant in place. Meanwhile, the tooth crown replicates your natural tooth to give you a more confident and beautiful smile for life!

Dental implant process

Dental implants with our Hawthorn dentists start with an initial consultation to determine if you are suitable for the treatment. Several factors are considered, such as bone density, available space for the dental implant, and your general oral health.

Once our dentists have decided implants are suitable for you, they will evaluate implant placement. The most advanced technology in our fully digitised clinic helps accurately position your dental implants and design the custom tooth crown that matches the surrounding teeth.

The next step is to undergo dental implant surgery. Our dentist will numb your mouth with a local anaesthetic to ease any discomfort. Following surgery, patients will wait for around 4-6 months for the gums to heal and the implant to stabilise. The final step of the dental implant procedure is to attach the dental crown to the implant post, and finally, you can enjoy your brand new smile.

Dental implant benefits

Because a dental implant is placed directly into the jaw, it looks, feels and acts just like a natural tooth. Furthermore, replacing the missing tooth helps avoid a multitude of further problems that arise from missing teeth.

Some benefits of dental implants from our Hawthorn clinic are:

A natural and beautiful smile
Improved bite functionality
Encouragement of better oral hygiene
Boosted confidence
Improved speech
Prevention of bone loss, keeping a pleasing facial profile
Prevention of shifting teeth towards tooth gaps
Youthful looks because facial muscles no longer sag
Better durability and a longer lifespan than other tooth replacement options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will dental implants work if I have lots of missing teeth?
One dental implant typically replaces one missing tooth. However, a bridge supported at either end by a dental implant can replace a few missing teeth. Additionally, as few as 4 to 6 implants can support a stable denture for those missing an entire row of teeth. Talk to our Hawthorn dentists to identify the best treatment plan to suit your specific needs.
Is a dental implant painful?
Not at all! Our experienced, friendly Hawthorn dentists ensure a relatively painless dental implant procedure. In fact, many patients report little to no discomfort. Our dentists numb the mouth with a local anaesthetic to ease any discomfort, and nitrous oxide better known as happy gas is also available to help nervous patients relax during treatment. The surgery will be over before you know it!
How to take care of dental implants?
Our dentists in Hawthorn advise dental implant patients to practise good oral hygiene to maintain the beauty of their dental implants. Take care of your dental implants as you would your natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing. And be sure to schedule twice a year visits to your dentist in Hawthorn for dental implant upkeep and a comprehensive dental check-up.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants can last for a couple of decades or more, provided patients maintain good oral health and visit their dentist regularly for check-ups and cleaning. It’s essential to follow the advice of your dentist in Hawthorn regarding dental implant maintenance. Follow their guidelines closely, and you can make your investment in dental implants worthwhile.
Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
