are booking your appointment. 5 year warranty applies to patients who have attended for
regular six month gap-free check-up and clean at any of our surgery locations (for those
without health funds this is capped at $175 per visit). Because every case is
different, consultation prior to treatment is required (at standard consultation fee) to determine

with specialists, but for most basic implant cases involving up to 3 implants, this special is
likely to apply.
What are Dental Implants?
A Dental Implant is an option to restore a missing tooth or multiple teeth in the jaw. It is
one of the most successful treatments to replace missing teeth (95-98% success rate based on
studies), and is also the least invasive option concerning adjacent teeth.
It does not involve cutting down healthy adjacent teeth such as seen in dental bridge, and
is a fixed option that is less likely to trap food and bacteria such as a removable denture.

DENTAL IMPLANT
It will feel SIMILAR to natural tooth, since that it is attached to the jaw bone unlike that
of a dental bridge or denture. However it will not feel exactly the same as a natural tooth due to
the difference of how natural tooth root is attached to the jaw bone comparing to the dental
implant. Which is why we still regard dental implant as an option only if no other options are
available to restore a broken/fractured/decayed tooth. For best options to restore a heavily broken
down tooth
The Dental Implant Procedure:
The procedure consists of placing a high-grade titanium alloy implant root analogue
(artificial dental root) into the jaw bone that has been prepared to receive the implant. Once the
implant root is placed, the bone is allowed to heal between 3-9 months. This is the most crucial
step in implant procedure as failure tends to occur during this phase due to infection during
healing OR body’s own foreign body reaction. SMOKERS and PATIENTS WHO ARE
IMMUNOCOMPROMISED (such as diabetics, patients going through chemotherapy, etc) are
more prone to implant failures due to reduced resistance to bacterial infection and poorer healing
capabilities.
Upon integration of the implant to the jaw bone (Osseointegration), the dentist will then
place an abutment to the implant (similar to a tooth prepared to receive a dental crown or bridge),
followed by the final restoration (crown or bridge). Newer technology have allowed the
abutment and crown to be fused as one piece design to improve strength and stability, but is not
always possible. Your dentist will discuss with you the best option suited to you.
Advantages of Dental Implants:
 Fixed option, meaning that it is attached to the jaw bone similar to a natural tooth.


Less invasive to adjacent teeth as there is no need to grind the adjacent teeth during it’s
placement most of the time. Also careful procedure usually induces LESS PAIN than a
tooth removal.



Cost effective, for potential future loss of teeth multiple implants can be joint together to
convert to a bridge meaning not EVERY single missing teeth need to be implanted.



Considered one of the best treatment for missing tooth/teeth. High success rate
comparing to other options available.

Disadvantages of Dental Implants:



Relative high cost initially comparing to most standard tooth restorations (crowns and
ceramic onlays are significantly cheaper if the tooth can be restored that way.
www.sydneydentalcrowns.com.au



Minor surgery is required and relative risk associated with smokers and
immunocompromised patients.



Does not feel EXACTLY like real tooth but very close to it. In fact, nothing compares to
natural tooth which is why we would always recommend dental restorations prior to
considering removal of the tooth and replacing it with dental imlant



Aesthetic of the gum (gingiva) is more challenging to obtain as it does not attach to the
implant the same way the gum attaches to natural tooth. Additional surgery may be
necessary adding to the cost of treatment.
