The average cost of a single dental implant in Australia is $6500-$7000 so you will save $$$$ with Fixed Price Dental.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial replacement for the tooth root within the jaw bone and is made from titanium. The purity of the titanium promotes fusion between the implant surface and the surrounding bone, anchoring the implant into place. This is known as osseo-integration and is the reason for the success of implants over other treatments. It takes a period of three to nine months following implant placement for complete osseo-integration to occur. The implant can then be used to hold a crown or bridge or to stabilise a loose denture.
Am I a candidate for a dental implant?
Dental implants are suitable for most healthy adult patients who have good oral hygiene, are free from gum disease and are ideally non-smokers. Implants can only be placed when the jaw has stopped growing and so are not suitable for patients younger than 18 years of age.
Social/medical factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol intake and diabetes can lead to poor initial healing of the implant and therefore reduce long term success rates. Each case is different, and it is vital that this is assessed prior to proposing any implant-based treatment.
In addition to social factors, biological factors such as the quality and density of the bone into which the implant is placed are also important. Patients with inadequate bone can still be treated, but these patients may require initial bone grafting or augmentation to improve the availability of suitable bone for the implant.
How will I know if a dental implant is suitable for me?
As part of our implant consultation, we will not only assess your medical and social history, but we will also carefully look at the overall health of the mouth, gums and surrounding teeth. It is essential that all existing problems with the teeth are treated prior to implant placement.
Together with meticulous treatment planning on our part, we need your help to establish good oral hygiene habits and to eliminate factors that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease in order to achieve long term success of your dental implants.
