Missing or Damaged Teeth, Dental Implants Are An Excellent Option.
Do you have missing or damaged teeth that you need to get fixed in Sydney? Dental implants are fast becoming the gold standard for tooth replacement. They are a longer lasting alternative to dentures or dental bridgework and the most natural looking restoration option.
One of the benefits of dental implants is they are strong and secure so you can eat the foods you love. They look natural, in fact they look like the teeth you were born with. They are so natural that you can bite into an apple or a steak without fear of your cap coming off or your denture getting stuck in an apple and popping out in public.
Dental Implant Oral Hygiene
Unlike dentures, you don’t remove dental implants for cleaning, oral hygiene is exactly the same for dental implants as it is for natural teeth, just brush your teeth twice a day and floss after meals.
To the untrained eye, they appear to be the teeth you were born with. That’s why dental implants are the best option in dentistry outside of your natural teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium screws that are implanted into your jawbone beneath your gums that replace the original roots of the missing tooth. Once in place, they provide a solid foundation to have a crown placed on the implant.

Dental Implant Video 1 – Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants
As you can see in the video, the replacement teeth will be made to match your natural teeth, it would be very hard for anyone to ever notice your dental implants.
However, dental implants aren’t the right option for everyone.
Are Dental Implants the Right Option For Me?
This question is best answered by your dentist after your initial consultation. You will most likely have x-rays on the specific area of your mouth where the implant is intended to go. These x-rays will help your dentist identify if the bone in the area is strong enough to support a dental implant. It will also reveal if there is enough room to place a dental implant in that region of your mouth.
During your initial consultation at Smile Makeover Expert Glebe, wewill also discuss your medical history with you. A dental implant is a surgical procedure so we want to be assured that you are physically capable of handling the procedure and aren’t allergic to any medications. If all looks well, Drs George or Andrew Lee Dental Implant specialists in Sydney will discuss cost and schedule a surgery date with you.

Are Dental Implants the Right Option for Every one?
While dental implants are suitable for use by most people in Sydney there are a few things we check first to ensure you are a good candidate. They include:
Your gums must be healthy enough to accept and form around the implant providing support and strength. However, if your gums aren’t healthy, for example, if you have gum disease, this can generally be treated quite easily with modern dental practises.
If you plan on replacing several teeth with dental implants, you would first have the remaining teeth extracted, and in a short amount of time your gums will become healthy again. If replacing several teeth isn’t your goal then you would need to take the steps recommended by your dentist to fight the gum disease before implant surgery can be performed.
If, for some reason dental implants are not a good option for you or you need to take other action first to improve your ability to have a successful dental implant, we will discuss all options with you during the initial consultation.
Adequate Structure and Bone Size
Dental implants are embedded into the jawbone. So there must be a sufficient amount of bone, and the bone must be strong enough to support the structure. If your x-rays reveal there are issues with the bone where your implant will be placed, there are special procedures that can help rebuild the bone to the point that it will support a dental implant. A Smile Makeover Expert will discuss these options with you and chart an appropriate plan of action especially for you..
Smoking and Dental Implants
Your mouth will need time to heal, and your gums and bone will need time to take hold of the dental implant. Smoking can negatively impact these processes, therefore if you do smoke it is highly recommended that you quit or at least cease smoking for several weeks to ensure post care treatments and healing are successful.
Commit to Good Dental Health Practices and Regular Check-ups
Dental implants require the same care and maintenance as natural teeth. If bad dental hygiene habits are picked up after dental implant surgery, the implant will be impacted by gum disease and may cause the dental surgery to fail.

They restore a lost tooth and end up looking, feeling, fitting and functioning just like your natural tooth. The titanium fixture that gets inserted into the jawbone, if taken care of properly, can last you a lifetime. It also serves to help you avoid bone deterioration that may interfere with eating, smiling, speaking and other activities of daily life.
