What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed in the jaw bone to replicate a tooth root. A dental crown or bridge is then placed on top of the titanium screw to replace the missing tooth or teeth

An implant can replace one missing tooth or a whole arch of teeth on 4 implants. Dental Implants allow you to eat, talk and smile with confidence.

Who Can Undergo a Dental Implant?

Dental implants at our clinic near Skye are recommended for patients who are in relatively good health and have enough bone at the treatment site to provide support for the implants. The eligibility of a patient is further identified after certain tests, including an X-ray that can give our practitioners the needed data to determine if the procedure is ideal.

What Does a Dental Implant Procedure Involve?

A dental implant procedure is carried out after the patient is administered a local anaesthetic. The first step of the procedure requires the placement of an implant through surgical means. The implant is covered by the gum and given time to fuse itself to the bone. This takes anywhere between three and six months. Once the implant is fused, there is a connecting component placed on top of the implant. This is the abutment that is then covered with a dental crown or cap.

How Painful is a Dental Implant?

During the procedure you will feel nothing as you will be numb however, you may experience a little discomfort the first few days after a dental implant has been placed. This can usually be managed with a mild analgesic. You may experience some swelling or bruise for up to a week afterward.

How Much is a Dental Implant?

This depends on the number of teeth that need to be replaced and the type of teeth that will be used e.g. an individual placed crown, bridges or complete dentures stabilised with implants. The cost also depends on whether the patient needs additional surgeries such as bone grafts or sinus lifts. To give a patient a complete treatment plan that indicates all costs involved, a CBCT (Cone Beam Scan) needs to be taken. The cost for a scan is $150 and be done in the clinic at your consultation appointment if needed.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental Implants at our clinic near Skye are designed to last a lifetime. The crown that goes on the top of the implant is designed to last 10 – 15 years.

What is the Difference Between an Implant and a Crown?

A dental implant replaces a complete tooth including the tooth root. We place dental implants when there are one or more missing teeth. A dental crown is a covering that covers the whole tooth crown (the part above the gum).

I needed an implant for a upper teeth. I search online information re dental implants and received call from Casey Smiles very quickly. Great customer service and honest dental advice. I didn’t feel pushed or intimidated to undertake treatment like with other dentists. Dr Mohamed is hands down the best dentist I’ve ever had. His practice is extremely clean, he is extremely thorough and doesn’t rush you out of the building like a lot of other dentists. My treatment plan was Implants & all on 4. Very satisfied with my dental surgery, pain free, even still happy about it the next day! I’ve highly recommended Casey Smiles to everyone. Thank you so much Casey Smiles teams and especially Taylor day one to follow up and continue to do so ☺️
