Dental Implants in Shenton Park

When a tooth has been lost, a dental implant may be used to create a replacement for that tooth. At Shenton Park Village Dental, our success rate for dental implants is quite high.

How Do Implants Work?

Woman in dental chairThe implant is a biocompatible titanium screw that is safe to the human body. It is screwed into the bone and then left alone for 3-6 months to integrate fully before the restoration part of the process can begin. We can usually provide an interim option while waiting for your crown. When integration is complete, we’ll create a crown that goes over the post, effectively replacing your missing tooth.

The success of implants depends on many factors, so we do a thorough examination to ensure that you are medically fit for the implantation process. We assess how much space there is in your mouth, how healthy your gums are, and how healthy the teeth on either side of the potential implant are.

Untreated or unstable gum disease, untreated dental decay, low bone density, and taking certain medications are factors that would prevent an implant from integrating with the bone. In such cases, dental implants are not an option.

Once we have determined you are a candidate for implants, we’ll take X-rays and use a 3D planning program to do a virtual surgery of your mouth on the computer. This cutting-edge technology allows us to see possible complications and adjust our surgery plan accordingly.

Dr Ash (Dentist) will explain everything to you and make sure you understand the process, costs and risks. Then we’ll do your implant surgery. If two or more consecutive teeth are missing, we may do implants on each end of the gap and create a bridge.

The longevity of dental implants depends on factors such as your overall health and your dental hygiene regime. However, dental implants typically last between 10 and 25 years.
