Dental implants Adelaide
Dental implants have become a sought after solution for individuals with missing teeth caused by accidents, tooth decay, gum issues, or oral diseases. At Westcare Dental we use cutting-edge dental technology to offer customised implant solutions to our valued patients in Melbourne.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant serves as an artificial tooth root, typically resembling a screw made of titanium metal. It is securely anchored to the jaw bone to replace a missing tooth. The screw-like portion of the dental implant acts as a substitute for the tooth’s natural root, providing a stable and reliable foundation for the placement of a new replacement tooth.
At Westcare Dental in Adelaide we embrace a modern and advanced approach to tooth replacements. Through the use of computer-guided techniques, our dental implant surgery is characterised as speedy, accurate, and minimally invasive. This approach enables us to restore your smile promptly and efficiently ensuring a smooth and comfortable experience throughout the process.
Types of dental implants
Individual Tooth Implant
In situations where a single tooth is missing, our dental experts at Westcare Dental offer the option of a single tooth implant. This advanced dental implant procedure involves the insertion of an artificial tooth root, which serves as a secure foundation. A custom-designed crown is then attached to the implant using an abutment. Opting for a single tooth implant ensures the preservation of the stability of your remaining natural teeth, providing an ideal solution for tooth replacement.
Bridge Supported by Implants
When multiple adjacent teeth are missing or significantly damaged, we recommend the placement of multiple dental implants to support a dental bridge. This innovative approach eliminates the need for removable partial dentures and minimizes the risk of damaging adjacent teeth. The outcome is a fixed, aesthetically pleasing solution that enhances both convenience and oral health, significantly improving your overall quality of life.
Say goodbye to the inconvenience of removable dentures with implant-supported overdentures. These advanced dentures are securely attached to 2-4 dental implants, eliminating the reliance solely on gums for support. By opting for an implant-supported denture, you can enjoy improved chewing ability and a higher quality of life. Experience the simplicity and retention provided by this innovative solution.
Full Arch Implants
When all of your upper or lower teeth are lost and you prefer not to wear a complete removable denture, Westcare Dental offers the option of an implant-retained complete denture, also known as All-on-4 Plus. With this approach, the need to replace each missing tooth with an individual dental implant is minimized. Instead, only two to six implants may be required to restore the entire arch of teeth. This comprehensive solution ensures a secure and comfortable fit, allowing you to regain confidence in your smile.
What is the process for dental implants?
A crucial step that involves a thorough dental examination, photographs and study models to create a well-thought-out treatment plan.
A surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia and sedation. Precision channels are created in the jawbone, often utilising a surgical guide. The implants are then fitted into the sites, establishing contact with the bone. Following placement there will be a healing period of two to six months to fuse with the bone before proceeding to the next phase.
Once healing is complete, the dental implant abutment is positioned to connect the dental implant to the porcelain crown.
