Tooth loss is a serious issue that can affect every aspect of your life.

At Oakleigh Dental Practice, we can replace missing teeth with dental implants for a long-term solution that improves your smile, your self-esteem and the functions of your mouth.

Dental implants consist of 3 components:

  • Biocompatible titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone. As you heal your bone fuses to the implant in a process called osseointegration. The posts mimic your tooth root and are used to provide support for your prosthetic tooth.
  • The abutments are the connectors and are placed on the exposed end of the post and provide stability for your prosthetic tooth.
  • The crowns are your replacement teeth and are typically made from ceramic to blend in with your natural teeth. They restore your smile and the functionality of your mouth.

 

Dental implant surgery is performed under local anaesthetic. It begins with small incisions in your gums which provides access to your jawbone. A small hole is drilled into your jawbone, and the post is placed inside before your gum is sutured closed.

Healing can take 3-6 months. Once you are fully healed and an impression is taken of your mouth and is used to design and create your crown, which is screwed securely into place on your dental implants for a natural-looking and fully functional tooth.
