Adelaide Cosmetic Dentistry are highly experienced in placing dental implants Adelaide. So, what does the procedure involve?
- First, we assess the missing teeth and take records to detect the amount of bone, space, and how the bite comes together.
- Next, we place dental implants where the teeth are missing, then implants left in place for the bone to heal around them.
- After a period of healing, we test the dental implants to ensure they are suitable before we finally attach a tooth to them.
- Next is the fabrication stage. We take moulds of your mouth and create a tooth to attach to your dental implant.
- Lastly, the teeth are put in place and tested on the implant once you and your dentist are happy with the results.

Frequently Asked Questions
Implant dentistry is regarded as one of the best options for replacement of missing teeth and results are expected to last for decades. However, like any other dental treatments failures can occur. Implants can get infected or bone can be lost around the titanium surface. Implant crown components can break under heavy load as well. These problems are rare, but risks still exist. As always frequent check-ups and home care are of utmost importance.
Placement of the implant is done under anesthetic. Like any other surgery, discomfort can occur for a short period of time postoperatively. Usual painkillers may be needed for the initial healing period.
Intravenous sedation for nervous patients may be sufficient, however, some surgeons prefer to place implants in the mouth under general anesthetic. In many instances, implant surgery is done in the chair and under local anesthesia only. Each case needs to be assessed individually.
Implant cost varies depending on the type of implant, its location and whether a graft needs to be done. Each case needs to be quoted accordingly.
Though some companies advocate this, you have to bear in mind that Australia has one of the highest standards of dentistry anywhere in the world. If an implant fails due to fracture or infection, fixing it will cost a lot more and will be far more traumatic.
In most cases, once the surgery is complete a period of healing needs to pass before a crown is placed. This is usually a minimum of 6 weeks.
