What is a
Dental implant?
A dental implant is a revolutionary solution for replacing missing teeth, offering a strong and stable foundation for a new tooth that will look, feel and function just like your natural teeth. With dental implants in Ivanhoe, you can enjoy a beautiful and confident smile, improved speech, and enhanced ability to eat your favourite foods with ease. Made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone to provide a secure and long term base for your replacement tooth. Whether you have lost one or several teeth, dental implants offer a long-lasting and effective solution for restoring your oral health and confidence. Investing in dental implants at Dentists of Ivanhoe is an investment in your smile, your health, and your quality of life.

Types of Dental Implants

There are several types of dental implants available to meet your unique needs and goals. Each type is designed to provide a strong foundation for your replacement tooth or teeth and to give you the beautiful and functional smile you deserve.

Tick

Single Dental Implants

Are used to replace a single missing tooth. The procedure involves placing a single titanium post into the jawbone to support a custom-made replacement tooth. This solution is ideal for individuals who only need to replace one missing tooth. Contact our team to find out about single tooth implant costs and how you can book your consultation.

Tick

Multiple dental implants

on the other hand, are a cost-effective solution for replacing 2 or more missing teeth. The procedure involves placing multiple titanium posts into the jawbone to support a bridge or a denture, depending on the number of missing teeth. Multiple dental implants provide a comprehensive and stable solution, with a number of options available to suit your financial and dental needs.

No matter which type of dental implant you need, you can be rest assured that you will enjoy the benefits of replacement teeth that look and feel like your natural teeth.

Am I a suitable candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a versatile and effective solution for a range of oral health problems. They are designed to replace missing teeth, restore oral function, and enhance the appearance of your smile. Some of the issues that dental implants can help resolve include:

Missing teeth

Whether you have lost a single tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can provide a permanent and natural-looking solution that will enhance the appearance of your smile and improve your oral function.

Loose or ill-fitting dentures:

If you are tired of struggling with loose or ill-fitting dentures, dental implants can provide a more stable and secure solution. With dental implants, you can enjoy improved comfort and confidence, knowing that your denture will not slip or move.

Shifting or crowding of remaining teeth:

When you lose a tooth, the remaining teeth can shift or become crowded, leading to further oral health problems. Dental implants can help prevent this from happening by maintaining the natural contours of your jawbone and keeping surrounding teeth in place.

Bone loss:

Dental implants can also help prevent bone loss by stimulating healthy jawbone growth. This will help maintain the contours of your face and prevent the facial sagging that often occurs with missing teeth.

Suitable candidates for dental implants are individuals who are in good general and oral health, have enough healthy jawbone to support the implant, and are committed to maintaining good oral hygiene. If you are considering dental implants, a consultation with your dentist can help determine if this is the right solution for you.

Our Procedure

1. INITIAL CONSULTATION WITH CBCT SCAN (30MINS)

During this initial consultation, you will meet with a dental professional to discuss your oral health goals. A CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) scan will be taken to provide a detailed 3D image of your jaw, teeth, and surrounding bones. This will help determine the best course of action for your dental implant procedure and ensure it will be successful.

2. 1ST STAGE IMPLANT PLACEMENT PROCEDURE WITH/WITHOUT BONE GRAFT (60-90 MINS)

The first stage of the implant placement procedure is the surgical placement of the implant into the jawbone. In some cases, a bone graft may be required if there is not enough bone to support the implant. You may be given local or general anaesthesia to ensure a comfortable experience.

3. Review after 3-6 months of healing (20mins)
After the implant has been placed, you will need to wait for 3 to 6 months for the implant to fully heal and fuse with the jawbone. During this time, your dentist will monitor the healing process and review the progress.
4. 2ND STAGE IMPLANT PROCEDURE (40MINS)
The second stage of the procedure involves the placement of a healing abutment.
5. Digital scan for implant crown (30mins)

Before the final crown can be placed, a digital scan will be taken to ensure a precise fit and aesthetic appearance.

6. FINAL CROWN (ARTIFICIAL TOOTH) PLACEMENT (30MINS)

The final step involves the placement of the crown, and you leave with a fully restored and functional smile.

Dental implants are a fantastic solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral health, function, and confidence.

FAQ’s

Here are some frequently asked questions to get to know us better.
There are three main steps in the dental implant process, and may take months from the first to the last step. After x-rays have been taken and a mould is made of your teeth, surgery begins. Your jaw may need bone grafting in order to place the implant, which is an additional step. After your gums have closed over the top and healed, the implant is then uncovered and an extension post is placed. Osseointegration occurs when the implant combines with your jaw bone. After that process, it will be time to place the artificial tooth/teeth.
Treat your dental implant as your natural teeth: brush and floss twice a day, as well as use mouthwash to eliminate bacteria that may build up around your implant/s. Avoid tobacco. Visit your dentist for a regular check-up twice a year.
