Dental Implants in Sandstone Point – Quality Restorations From A Quality Team!

If you’re considering undergoing dental implants, Sandstone Point Dental can help. Implants are arguably the ultimate in missing tooth restoration, and not without good reason.

Designed to replace a missing tooth or teeth, a dental implant is permanently fixed in the mouth, unlike conventional dentures. This means that tooth implants in Sandstone Point won’t move when you smile, eat or chew.

Moreover, implant restorations don’t involve resizing and shaping neighbouring teeth, potentially weakening them, as is the case with a dental bridge.

So how are dental implants placed? What’s the procedure for dental implants at Sandstone Point Dental?

The consultation
A consultation is always the first stage of dental implant treatment. During this meeting, our Sandstone Point dentist will check your medical history, examine your oral health and (in most cases) take x-rays. From this our team will determine;

A – if you’re an eligible candidate
B – Your personalised treatment plan

The surgery
Much of the planning for dental implants in Sandstone Point takes place behind the scenes, which results in faster and safer surgery for patients.

The Sandstone Point Dental team take exceptional care to ensure that you remain comfortable and relaxed, before and during surgery. The procedure starts with our dentist making a small incision into the gum, exposing the bone beneath. Don’t worry, you’ll be given a local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel a thing.

Then, a small hole is drilled through the jaw bone and the titanium implant is secured into it. The gum is then sutured, covering over the implant. Sometimes at this stage, the abutment which connects the crown to the implant is also placed.

In some cases, you may be fitted with a temporary crown, but this depends on how visible the gap in your smile is.

The whole process should take no longer than 1 hour. Once the implant has been placed, you’re good to go!

Osseointegration
During a consultation, we’ll take an x-ray of your mouth to determine the extent of the problem. We’ll then talk through the extraction process with you so that you know exactly what is going to happen and what to expect. We’ll also take time to answer any questions or concerns you have about the wisdom teeth removal process.
