Dental Implants – Your Ticket to Restoring Missing Teeth.

Welcome to Timeless Smiles Dental, your ultimate destination for cutting-edge solutions to all your dental problems in Sydney.

“I have seen the difference that dental implants can make to a patient. In many ways, their enjoyment of things we take for granted – like eating and smiling – grows exponentially. If you feel you would like to enjoy these things again, call me directly to discuss your options.”– Dr Nimesh Patel.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that is attached to your jaw. This screw then acts as the base for the artificial tooth, known as the dental crown. The crown replaces the missing tooth and functions the same. Dental crowns can be custom-made to match your existing teeth’s shape, size, and colour.

Dental implants from our Sydney clinic can also be used to support a dental bridge or dentures. This treatment option provides excellent support, durability, and aesthetic appeal. Also, you no longer have to endure the discomfort or unsightly gaps caused by missing teeth.

At Timeless Smiles Dental, we offer dental implant treatment in Sydney to replace one or more missing teeth. Dr Nimesh will draw on the services of other specialists, as required, depending on your particular needs. This approach helps ensure your treatment is customised specifically to your circumstances.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants can provide a wide range of benefits depending on the condition of your mouth before the treatment. Our patients will find they achieve the following benefits from our implants:

Improved speech

Your speech may suffer if you have received poor dental treatment, such as ill-fitting dentures. Dental implants can help support your mouth or existing teeth and provide stability and functionality to improve your speech.

Better comfort

Tooth implants are also an extremely comfortable solution as they are fixed to your jaw and act like natural teeth. When this procedure is done by one of our experienced implants dentists in Sydney, you will discover a new comfort level to restore your missing teeth.

Boost self-confidence

Gapped, crooked, or missing teeth can affect self-confidence. Dental implants are functional and aesthetically appealing, giving you the confidence to smile, talk and chew again with a brand-new set of teeth.

Dental Implants Procedure

Step 1: Our proficient dentists conduct thorough scans and x-rays, which provide them with a comprehensive understanding of optimal positioning.

Step 2: Through a minor surgical operation, the dental implant is skilfully affixed to the jawbone, establishing a secure and stable foundation.

Step 3: As time elapses, typically after a few months, bone growth occurs around the dental implant, further improving its integration.

Step 4: Once the implant attains stability, our experienced implant dentist in Sydney creates a solid foundation upon which the new tooth will be built.

Step 5: To ensure the utmost accuracy in crafting the artificial tooth, we take an accurate mould of your oral cavity.

Step 6: Finally, the artificial tooth is securely fastened onto the foundation, offering permanent results and optimal functionality.

  • Number of Implants: Whether you need a single implant, multiple implants, or a complete mouth restoration, the complexity of the procedure and the materials involved will contribute to the total cost.

Different Types of Dental Implants

Endosteal implants The most common form of dental implant is known as an endosteal implant. This type of implant is typically shaped like a small screw, cylinder, or blade and inserted into your jawbone to support one or more prosthetic teeth, which serve as replacements. In cases where you already have dentures or bridges, we may recommend an endosteal implant.

Subperiosteal implants These types of implants are positioned on or above your jawbone. It consists of a metal post placed beneath your gum and extends through it to secure it in place. If you prefer not to undergo a bone augmentation procedure to enhance the bone structure, we may suggest a subperiosteal implant.

Dental implants provide options for replacing one tooth or many teeth. They are as follows:

Single-tooth implant: Used for replacing a single tooth with an implant and custom-made crown.

Multiple-tooth implant: Recommended for multiple missing teeth, using implants to support a dental bridge or multiple replacement teeth.

Full-mouth implant: Multiple implants are placed to support a complete set of replacement teeth or a denture for cases of complete tooth loss.

Consult our professional implant dentist in Sydney to determine the best option for your dental needs.

Dental Implants Vs. Dentures

A common misunderstanding is that implants and dentures are the same. But the following are the differences you should know: –

  • Implants are permanent, while dentures are removable.
  • Implants are durable and long-lasting, while dentures can sometimes slip or move while eating or speaking.
  • Implants help preserve bone density in the jaw. And dentures can provide a temporary solution while awaiting implant placement.

Eligibility Criteria for Getting Tooth Implants

While dental implants are an excellent long-term treatment option, not every patient can receive tooth implants. To be suitable for a dental implant, you will need to be assessed by one of our dentists to determine if you are eligible and if it is the right solution.

If you do have one or more missing teeth, you may be suitable for a Sydney dental implant if you have the following:

  • Healthy, full-grown jawbone
  • Healthy gums, free from disease
  • Healthy bone with no conditions

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are regular visits to the dentist necessary after getting dental implants?

After getting dental implants, it’s essential to continue regular visits to the dentist. These check-ups ensure proper healing and early detection of any potential issues. Our Sydney dentists might suggest more frequent appointments initially to monitor your recovery progress.

Q: How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are made to last and are a long-term solution for tooth loss. The implant procedure comprises two parts: the screw and the crown. The titanium screw is fused to the jawbone and acts at the foundation to which the crown (false tooth) is attached. The screw, with proper oral care, can last up to 25 years and even longer. The crown can last up to 10–15 years before it needs to be replaced.

Q: How long do dental implants take?

An implant procedure is not a one-visit treatment option. This procedure typically takes 2–3 visits to the dentist over a couple of months. An example of the stages for a dental implant is as follows:

  1. Initial consultation: assessment, scans and x-rays are done to plan the implants’ placement.
  2. Implant Placement: the implant is fixed to the jawbone.
  3. Digital Scan/mould: a scan is taken to find the perfect shape for the crown.
  4. Crown placement: the crown is fitted with a small screw attached to the implant.
Q: How do dental implants work?

A dental implant is a very safe and predictable procedure that replaces the tooth and its roots with a metal screw and crown. Dental implants are used when the tooth is missing or needs removal. Implants provide functional stability to the jaw while resembling a natural tooth.

Q: How painful are dental implants?

Dental implants are placed with careful planning and under the guidance of our experienced clinicians under anaesthesia. It is a completely painless procedure in well-planned cases. We also offer in-house sleep dentistry for nervous and anxious patients for any dental procedure.

Q: What dental insurance covers dental implants?

It is best to enquire your private health fund about accurate information for your coverage. Our team can only give you a general guideline based on our experience.

At Timeless Smiles, we cater for all major health funds. We are also an Advantage provider for Medibank Private and members’ choice for CBHS and Westfund. This would assure you and your family of getting fully covered for your six-monthly check-up and clean visits.
