Advantages of Dental Implants

Historically, missing teeth have been replaced with removable dentures and bridges which attach to the neighboring teeth. This can potentially damage the teeth and leave you with bigger problems when things fail

Implants allow us to provide you with a reliable long-term fixed solution for missing teeth. With modern techniques it is now often possible to remove a hopeless tooth and replace it with an implant in just one surgical procedure.

  • Implants are fixed and do not need to be removed
  • They do not trap food
  • They are not a cause of embarrassment; which is often the case with dentures
  • The teeth either side of the gap do not need to be treated. This avoids complications such as root canal treatment and decay
  • The cost is comparative to having a bridge

Immediate Placement

When a tooth or teeth are lost, the bone and gums supporting them begin to diminish immediately. The longer you wait before implant placement the more tissue is lost. Therefore, is it normally best to replace teeth that need to be extracted immediately with a dental implants.

Since the first use of implants in dentistry, technology has changed dramatically. Thread design and surface texture have changed as has our understanding of the processes behind osseointegration.

Advantages of Immediate Placement

Clearly circumstances such as the bone quality and quantity must be considered, but it is possible much more often than in the past.

Here at the Sydney Implant Institute, we understand the biological benefits of immediate replacement and realise the desire patients have that gaps be filled as soon as possible.

As such we strive to provide you with a temporary but natural looking tooth as soon as possible. We will put a tooth on an implant where possible, where the final result will be enhanced by this rather than jeopardised. This is the majority of single and multiple tooth replacement cases.

  • Usually less invasive surgery
  • Allows better gum tissue management
  • less healing time after surgery
  • Only one surgical appointment
  • Normally, no need for injections after the first appointment

Replacing Multiple Teeth

It is very common for people to have more than one tooth missing or even a span of teeth missing. It is no longer necessary to fill these gaps with dentures or to cut down neighbouring teeth for bridges. The team at the Sydney Implant Institute will restore what has been lost and your next set of teeth can come courtesy of implant dentistry.

More than a biological response. Safer and faster treatment. Faster healing and better quality of anchorage is the ultimate goal of an implant surface during osseointegration. This increases the safety during the early healing phase and leads to a superior structural and functional connection between vital bone and the implant.

The SLActive® surface is designed to provide a safer and faster treatment reducing the healing period from 6–8 weeks down to 3–4 weeks in all indications*. This is the reference from Straumann for the faster loading of implants.

Dental Implant Process

Simple Cases can take as few as Four Appointments. Implants are your third set of teeth, the next generation of teeth. Dental Evolution
  1. A comprehensive consultation including x rays and CT scans. We will provide you with a detailed treatment plan including a breakdown of costs and schedule,
  2. Implant placement and temporary restoration
    We will always strive to provide you with temporary teeth whilst the implant fuses to your bone.
  3. A healing phase is necessary and can range from weeks to months, however 3–4 months is usual (complex cases involving bone or soft tissue replacement normally take longer)
    Impressions are then taken to allow the technician to make the final implant supported teeth.
  4. Delivery of your final implant supported teeth.

Replacing All Your Teeth

When all of your teeth are missing or unrestorable, replacement used to mean dentures. Dentures are a handicap. Implants are a way to make sure your next set of teeth look and feel natural. By placing multiple strategically positioned implants around the jaw, they can form the foundations for a full set of beautiful teeth. Nowadays, this often involves using the All on 4 concept

Each case must be carefully considered on an individual basis. The amount and quality of bone must be measured and the direction of any bone and soft tissue loss carefully considered. The number of implants will vary as will the material and techniques in the manufacture of your new teeth.

The team at the Sydney Implant Institute have many years experience in the consideration of these factors and can help guide you to the ideal solution for your personal situation.

The aim remains the same: To provide you with the confidence and comfort that a full set of natural looking teeth can provide. Over time your implant retained teeth  will feel just like  natural teeth.

Gum And Bone Grafting

When a tooth or teeth are lost, the bone and gums supporting them begin to diminish immediately. The longer you wait before implant placement the more tissue is lost. Each case is different as are the needs of each person. However the careful consideration of the hard and soft tissue as well as the missing teeth in every case should never change.

Gum and bone grafting are techniques to encourage the growth of bone and soft tissue where they have been lost. This allows us to provide an optimum foundation for your dental implants and can be essential in cases where aesthetics are important.

Using one of the latest innovations in dentistry the A-PRF centrifuge healing times can now be reduced by up to 50%.

Using the patients own platelets which are proven to increase collagen production and cell mitosis which enhances healing and promotes soft tissue repair with reduced inflammation. It also provides greater bone regeneration around implants.
