General information about Dental implants
Dental implants are biocompatible metal tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone to restore missing teeth. Implant plus abutment and attached crown closely mimics the function and look of a real tooth. They are also attractive alternative to full and partial plates and Multi-unit Bridge.
Now days with new implant techniques one or several missing teeth can be replaced.
As shown in the picture the crown is attached to the implant by use of a third piece, called abutment. In certain cases, the implant can be fitted to a special attachment to a full denture to minimise movement of the denture (mostly lower denture).
A dental implant is meant to last for many years but poor oral hygiene can make its life shorter. Implant crowns are not subjected to decaying but they can develop plaque and calculus which eventually lead to gum issues such as bleeding gum, loss of bone, infection and pain.
Properly looked after implants that are supported with sufficient bone can last for many years
Sometimes in order to achieve the best outcome, several practitioners may get involve in managing a case. While this may effect the cost and the time, it is done in the interest of the patient’s well-being.
Dental Implant Specialists Sydney
The term “dental implant surgery” can trigger an alarm in your mind, but it is a completely safe procedure with a very high success ratio of up to 95 percent. Having CBCT which is a 3D X-ray of jaws on-site, helps to be extra accurate and also cuts the chair side time dramatically. A dental implant is an artificial metal root for a tooth, which is placed in the jawbone and allowed the bone to grow into it. Once the body accepts the implant, a cosmetic crown tooth tops the root. The prosthetic placed with this procedure can effectively replace the lost one. It is a onetime permanent solution for lost or damaged teeth. The root is made up of titanium, which not only deters infections but also firmly supports the tooth to withstand regular wear and tear. Along with Dental implants in Sydney and Sydney CBD, we offer complete dental care at our practice.

- Smoking can cause delay healing and may also cause failure by preventing osseo-integration of implant
- During pregnancy it does not worth to put baby’s health in risk, instead procedure can wait

Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implant procedures can be done using local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia depending on complexity of the case. General anaesthesia may require hospital admission and anaesthetist.
The anaesthetist can tell you more the type of anaesthetic that is best for you and benefits and risks.
Most implants are made of Titanium that is able to form a strong integration with surrounding bone tissue.
In most cases, the procedure involves two or three separate treatment stages:
- Placement of implant inside the jawbone
- Insertion of abutment (connector) on the implant. This can be done at the same time with implant insertion
- Attachment of artificial tooth (crown) to the abutment
The whole process can take considerable time, depending on case it can be between 3 to 12 months from day of surgery to the fitting of the crown depending on:
- General health and medical conditions
- Medication taken by patient and underling conditions
- Site of the insertion
- Dental health
- Whether bone graft is needed for the defect
- Size of the defect which receives bone graft
In more favourable situation insertion of implant and fitting an abutment can be done in a single stage operation. However not every patient is suitable for it.
Depending on the complexity of the patient’s case, the procedure can take from 30 minutes to several hours.
- preparation of implant placement
The recipient site in the gum is prepared to expose the underling bone. This is mostly done through a surgical guide with a puncher slightly bigger than actual implant. The idea of one implant to replace one missing tooth is not always the case. Depending on mechanique of the missing tooth, quality of the bone and the size of implant, implants may support more than one r two missings. Dentist will explain these to you in details.
- insertion of the implants
A threaded implant is screwed into the drilled hole, the gum is stitched closed, and removed 5-10 days after. Implant stables over the weeks and months as bone grows on the implant surface. The process is called osseointegration could lasts up to 6 months
- Insertion of abutment (connector)
The abutment is fitted after bone has healed around the implant the abutment is the support post or connector between implant and crown. The dentist makes an incision into the gum to access the implant and affixes the abutment to the implant. Normally a x-ray is taken to ensure the abutment is correctly placed. A dental impression of both jaws are needed to finalize design of the crown which may take few weeks to allow gum healing.
- Final restoration (single crown, bridges or denture)
A final artificial crown or crowns can be either cemented or screwed into the abutment. once the crown is fitted , a dental X-ray may be taken to ensure the correct placement of every single implant parts.
Implants can also be fitted to full or partial dentures to provide support and stability to them. It is generally a very successful treatment and most patients report a good result
