Dental Implants Blacktown

adult friends laughingAt Blacktown Dental Group, we understand the negative impact that missing teeth can have on your quality of life. Eating and speaking can become challenging. You also may feel too self-conscious to smile or have your picture taken.

If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants are the most advanced solution that acts as a natural tooth and will last for your lifetime. An implant is a titanium post that gets inserted into your jawbone. Depending on your particular needs, we can place a crown, bridge or denture on the implants.

The Benefits of Selecting Dental Implants

Even if you have one single tooth missing, that can affect your ability to chew the foods you enjoy. If you have multiple missing teeth, that can be even more devastating. A primary benefit of dental implants is you can once again enjoy the full function and aesthetics of a natural smile. The following are some of the many benefits of choosing dental implants to replace missing teeth:

  • A high success rate
  • Surrounding teeth will not get damaged
  • Easy to care for
  • They last for a lifetime
  • Composed of biocompatible materials

What to Expect When Getting a Dental Implant

Once we’ve determined that you’re an ideal candidate for dental implants, we can schedule a time to have the surgery be completed. Please note that a healing period must take place while the implant integrates into the jawbone. After this period, we can put a crown, bridge or denture on top of the implant to restore your smile.

Whether you have a crown, bridge or denture is dependent on your unique situation. If we need to replace just one tooth, a crown is likely the most suitable solution. For two or more teeth, we will likely recommend a bridge. If you want to replace all of your teeth, you can have dentures securely affixed to your dental implants.

FAQ

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Those with decayed, missing, chipped or severely infected teeth may be an ideal candidate for dental implants. To better serve you, we encourage you to make an appointment with our practice. We can examine and evaluate your mouth and then provide our best recommendations.

What will a dental implant look like?

A dental implant is crafted to look and act just like your natural teeth. Implants look so natural that most people who see you won’t be able to tell the difference. Dental implants will enable you to eat, chew, speak and perform all of the functions your regular teeth allow you to with enhanced aesthetics!

How much do dental implants cost?

It’s important to note that we can’t provide an estimate of the cost for implants without assessing your smile needs first. During a consultation with one of our dentists, we’ll evaluate your mouth so we can make better recommendations for your individual needs, as every patient is different. We’ll craft a customised care plan for you. If you agree to proceed, we can get started as soon as you’re ready.

Are placing dental implants painful?

Getting implants is usually not considered painful. To minimise any possible discomfort, we offer patients nitrous oxide (‘happy gas’). Typically, only local anaesthetic is needed for dental implants. We will ensure you feel entirely comfortable and relaxed during your treatment.

Are dental implants only for a certain age group?

Typically, implants are suitable for patients above the age of 20 when additional growth ceases. A dental implant can be appropriate for anyone who has a missing tooth and whose teeth are fully grown in. Whether you’re in your early 20s to late 80s, you can have a dental implant.

Do health funds cover dental implants?

Your health fund cover will vary depending on the plan you have. Some may have benefits for dental implants. To know for sure if your insurance covers implants, we encourage you to contact your health fund directly and inquire about specifics.

Do you have payment plans?
