Our Dental Implant Options
Restore The Appearance & Function of Your Smile
For many years, bridges and dentures were the only way to treat and restore missing teeth in Australia. However, with advancements in dental technology, dental implants have become a popular and effective option for those looking to replace missing teeth and restore their natural tooth function and appearance. Our dentists in Noosa can help you take advantage of this dental solution!
Dental implants are designed to mimic the natural feeling and functioning of a tooth, as they replace the root of the missing tooth. They are generally made of titanium, a durable and biocompatible material that allows the implant to naturally integrate with the bone through a process called osseointegration. These dental implants are perfect for those who want to improve their smile and boost their confidence.
If you are considering dental implants, it is important to consult with an experienced and qualified dentist. Our dentists at Noosa Family Dental have many years of experience in placing and restoring implants. We will be able to assess your individual needs and provide you with the best treatment option to suit your needs. This may include options such as single implants, implant-supported bridges, all-on-4 implants, or implant overdentures. Get the smile you deserve - contact us today to schedule a consultation and experience firsthand how dental implants can improve your quality of life.
What You Need To Know About Dental Implants
The Benefits Of Dental Implants
There are a number of benefits to getting dental implants from Noosa Family Dental's clinic in Noosa, including:
Enhanced Appearance: Dental implants are designed to mimic the natural look and feel of your teeth. They are custom-made to match the color and shape of your existing teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking result. This makes them an ideal option for those looking to fill gaps in their smile, and improve their overall appearance.
Improved Speech and Eating: Missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures can cause speech and eating issues. Dental implants provide a stable base for replacement teeth, allowing for improved speech and swallowing. They don't change or move like traditional dentures or bridges, providing a more comfortable and secure solution.
Reduced Discomfort: Dental implants are a permanent solution and once fully healed, you won't have to worry about future discomfort, chipping or pain associated with traditional dentures. They are designed to feel like your natural teeth and provide a comfortable, long-term solution.
Better Overall Oral and Physical Health: Missing teeth can cause the surrounding teeth to shift, which can lead to other dental problems down the road. Dental implants help keep the teeth in their natural position, thereby improving speech, chewing and digestion. They also help to prevent bone loss, which can occur when a tooth is missing. With dental implants, you can improve your overall health by reducing the risk of further oral health problems, and improve your ability to eat and speak comfortably.
Our Dental Implant Restoration And Replacement Process
What Is Involved In Dental Implant Treatments?
Dental implant placement is a surgical procedure that is best carried out by a specialist in the field. Noosa Family Dental have a long-standing relationship with periodontist Dr John Carigy at Foundation Dental. Having placed thousands of implants over the past 20 years, specialist training and a wealth of knowledge and experience, we are able to achieve excellent results.
We can help you determine if this treatment is right for you, and will work with you every step of the way to ensure a successful outcome. Implants are made to last, so you can rest assured that your smile will look great for years to come.
Before your dental implant treatment, both our Noosa dentist and the periodontist will need to make an assessment of your mouth. This will involve examinations, moulds and x-rays. Our dentist looks at the mouth as a whole and plans for the crown which will be placed on top of the implant. Our periodontist also checks general gum health and bone levels to determine what will be involved in placing an implant in the given space.
2. Implant placement
To ensure you are comfortable during your procedure, you are placed under local anaesthetic in the dental chair. It is a procedure that takes under two hours with little post-operative pain. The implant screw, which is placed in the bone, is then allowed to heal/integrate for a period of three months. At this time you may choose to have a temporary denture. People usually don’t bother if the tooth is at the back and you can’t see it.
After your procedure, the dental implant is checked by our periodontist to ensure that it has been locked and integrated into the bone as expected. The go-ahead is then given to the dentist to create a crown for the dental implant. An impression of the implant will be taken at Noosa Family Dental, where it is sent away to create a customised crown. A week or so later, the crown will be ready to place on the implant.
