Frequently Asked Questions
Is an implant permanent?
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 is of utmost importance.
Will it hurt?
Placement of implant is done under anesthetic. Like any other surgery, discomfort can occur for a short period of time post operatively. Usual painkillers may be needed for the initial healing period.
Do I need to go under general anesthetic for the surgical part?
An 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.
How much does it cost?
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.
Is it better to go overseas and get it done there for a much cheaper price?
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 a far more traumatic.
How long does the procedure take?
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.
