What is it?

If you are self-conscious about missing teeth or the possibility of losing a crown or dentures then Perth Dental Implants could be the solution for you. Because Dental Implants attach to the jawbone, they create a stable and reliable base for replacement teeth. This technique can support individual or several teeth and can even be implanted to handle partial and full dentures! These implants look completely natural and are appropriate for all ages. For example if a younger patient has had a dental sport injury, these implants can look flawless and restore full tooth functions completely. If you’re looking into getting a complete Smile Makeover, Dental Implants could play a part in realising your dream. They are a permanent solution to missing and decaying teeth and can even improve speech and restore an aesthetically beautiful face shape.

This treatment is relatively short in terms of operation time however we still endeavour to make your experience with us as pleasant as possible. Not only do we have the most highly qualified dentists available to carry out your treatment, but we can also make sure your anxieties about visiting the dentist or receiving treatment are taken care of. We specialise in Sleep Dentistry, which can aid patients in relaxing or give them relief from a fear of needles and general dental work. This way you can have your smile repaired or rebuilt with little to no memory of the procedure. If fitted correctly, Dental Implants should last a lifetime and can be a cost effective way to manage pesky dentures, and failing crown & bridgework. So if you have experienced discomfort due to missing teeth or flimsy replacement teeth, and are looking for dental implants in Perth, call Advanced Dental Spa today and take a step towards your perfect smile.

What's involved?

Receiving Dental Implants involves implanting screws in place of natural tooth roots to anchor down dentures, bridges, and crowns. They attach to the jawbone and create a reliable base for replacement teeth so you don’t have to worry about temporary dentures falling out. Dental Implants support individual or multiple teeth that are designed especially for you. The customised implants will fit in seamlessly to create your perfect smile. During the procedure a small post is placed into the bone socket of your missing tooth. When the bone fuses around this post it creates a reliable support for the replacement teeth.

Once the gum has healed another small connecting post is put in place, which will connect the original post to the new tooth or teeth. These new teeth will be colour matched to your existing teeth so to ensure a perfect smile.

How does it feel?

With the appropriate numbing and anaesthetic the procedure should not cause discomfort however some pain may be experienced during the healing process. Your dentist will go through the best ways to manage this pain and medication that will ensure your comfort. Sedation Dentistry is a great solution to anaesthetic during these cases where multiple procedures may need to be performed. If you are uncomfortable with dental treatments or have an extremely low tolerance to pain, Sedation Dentistry may be recommended where you are put under twilight sedation and wake feeling rested, with no or little memory of the procedure. Not only does Sedation Dentistry offer an alternative to anaesthetic but is also a great option for those experiencing anxiety about dental treatments.

We are patient and courteous and aim to make your treatment the most pleasant experience possible. To learn more about your options and how Advanced Dental Spa can provide a comfortable environment for dental treatments, contact us today.

Scared of the dentist?

Being scared of the dentist is a common fear among both young and old and nothing to be ashamed about. Thankfully there are talented dentists such as the ones at our clinics who are trained in methods that will decrease your anxiety associated with dentists and allow you to get the treatment you need. Oral health is extremely important to your overall health and shouldn’t be delayed, especially when facing a condition that could compromise the future integrity of your smile. We offer a range of services and use world class techniques to ensure your discomfort is at a minimum during your treatment, whether that be a routine check up, smile makeover, or dental implant/restoration.

One of the main techniques we use to overcome your fears is Sedation Dentistry. Sedation Dentistry is the process of performing dental treatments while the patient is under conscious (or twilight) sedation. This process can be beneficial in many circumstances including when complex extensive dentistry needs to be undertaken and when the patient faces anxiety about dental work in general. If you’ve experienced issues with a fear of needles, a low pain threshold, or strong gag reflex when visiting the dentist, Sedation Dentistry could be the solution. For more information on the services available aimed at making your appointment more comfortable, contact us today.

Dental Implant FAQ

Where Will My Crowns Be Fitted? 

The surgery may be able to be carried out at our practice if it is a straightforward case. To see if it can be done at our dental clinic, we will first need to review a CT scan of the area where the implant(s) will be placed. The procedure can be done under local anesthetic or i.v sedation, depending on your preference, which we will discuss with you. If the case is complicated, we will refer the surgical implant placement to an oral surgeon to ensure that you get the very best care possible.

How Much Will a Dental Implant Cost?

Implant surgery, including a surgical guide and implant crown restoration, generally costs between $6,000 to $7,000. Each case is different though, and we will be able to give you a much better idea of how much the dental implant surgery will cost once after your initial consultation.

Is Dental Implant Surgery Painful?

Some pain and swelling may be experienced for the first 2-3 days after surgery. There is no pain when restoring the dental implant with a crown.

How much time off work will I need?

The amount of time needed away from work is different from patient to patient and will depend on the person and the complexity of the surgical placement of the implant. As a rule of thumb, one to two days off work after you have had the surgery is quite normal.

How Long Will My Dental Implants Last?

Depending on your overall health and levels of oral hygiene, your dental implants usually last from 10 to 20 years.

What’s Involved With The Implant Process?

Firstly, we request CT scans to be carried out in order to assess the complexity of the surgery and whether there is enough bone to support the implant. Next, we take impressions for a surgical guide to be made. Following that, the implant screw is then placed in the jaw bone, and let to osseointegrate  for three to four months before a crown is placed on the implant screw.

How Will My Mouth Feel Afterwards?

There shouldn’t be any significant changes to how your mouth feels after the dental implant surgery.

Will The Implant(s) Affect my Other Healthy Teeth?

No. Implants are a stand-alone dental procedure and will not affect any of the neighbouring teeth.

What Risks Are Involved?

As with all surgery, there are risks involved, such as:

Bacterial infection of the implant site; nerve damage (which can cause numbness or a tingling of the lips or chin); blood vessel damage; sinus problems (such as perforations when placing implants for upper teeth); and lack of osseointegration of the implant.
