Complete Mt Gravatt East Dental Implant Therapy

dental implantsDental implants are one of the most advanced options available for our Mt Gravatt East family dentist to replace your missing teeth. Each one is designed to mimic the look and function of a natural tooth root, allowing us to support a fixed restoration such as a crown, bridge or denture.

We work with a visiting Prosthodontist specialist so that you can complete your entire implant therapy right here in our office.

Benefits of Choosing Dental Implants

Implants are a permanent option that can last an entire lifetime. While missing teeth often lead to changes in your facial profile and the integrity of your bone, implants work to preserve these characteristic features. Placing them soon after a tooth has been extracted can prevent gum shrinkage and bone resorption. They’re even considered to be stronger than natural teeth.

What to Expect

The biocompatible material that implants are made from triggers new bone growth, allowing the titanium root to fuse permanently with your jaw. After the surgery, it takes a few months for this osseointegration process to fully complete; once it does, your fixed prosthesis can be attached.

Immediate Implant Placement

Depending on your particular situation, it’s sometimes possible to extract a problematic tooth and place a dental implant on the same day. As the area heals, you’ll wear a temporary crown. About four months later, the permanent implant crown will be installed.

Implant Supported Overdentures

Dentures can be retained with dental implants, for comfort and stability. As few as two or four implants are necessary. If you’ve struggled with a loose-fitting denture and find it difficult to speak or eat with them, consider adding implants for support.

Our dentures are designed to look and feel as comfortable and natural as possible. Because we have an on-site lab, we’re able to create customised implant dentures that are often mistaken for natural teeth.

Permanent implant retained dentures are also available!

How Many Implants Will I Need?

It’s not necessary to have a dental implant placed for every single tooth that’s missing. Instead, we can use pairs or sets of implants to support fixed bridges. This approach prevents the need for more expensive treatments or removable dentures.
