Implants Dentistry Sydney is a good option for individuals who have lost a tooth or teeth due to an injury, disease or decay. Dental Implants provides many benefits over traditional forms of tooth replacement and the procedure is considered to be the most functionally effective & durable choice for the restoration of missing teeth.

A Permanent Solution to Restore Teeth
Tooth Implants are a preferred method of teeth restoration – as opposed to dentures or bonded bridges – because they are permanent and therefore there should be no shifting, breaking or falling out of the mouth.
Another advantage of dental implants is that, unlike dentures or bonded bridges, they do not allow for shrinkage of the jawbone which may cause an individual’s face to look older.
What to Expect from Your Dental Implant Procedure
Many of the cosmetic dentistry treatments like Dental implant procedure can be completed in a single visit but will initially require a period of osseointegration, which is the process by which the implant root and the bone of the jaw bond together forming an anchor.
To start the procedure a small pilot hole is drilled into space where the tooth is missing to guide the titanium screw that will be responsible for holding the implant in place. The hole is then slowly widened in order to allow placement of the implant screw.
A protective cover screw is then placed on top to allow the site of the implant to heal and for osseointegration to take place. After 3 to 6 months the protective cover is removed and a temporary crown is placed on top of the dental implant. Over time, the gum will shape itself around the crown. The final step is when the temporary crown is replaced by a permanent crown.
