Are you looking to replace a missing tooth?
Our dental implants are a wonderful solution.
“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 Is A Dental Implant?
We offer dental implants as a treatment option to replace one or more missing teeth. A common misunderstanding is that implants and dentures are the same. Implants are permanent, while dentures are removable.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that is attached to your jaw. This screw then acts as the base for the artificial tooth we see — known as a 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 can also be used to support a dental bridge or dentures. This treatment option provides excellent support, durability, and aesthetic appeal. We offer affordable dental implants for all the patients in Sydney.
The availability of this technology means it is no longer necessary to live with the discomfort or appearance created from gaps left by teeth that have been removed. Dr. Nimesh will draw on the services of other specialists, as required, depending on your particular needs. This approach helps ensure the treatment you receive is customised specifically to your circumstances.
A surprisingly simple treatment is staged over two to three visits, with the implant connected to a small metal post that secures and supports the artificial tooth. There are many benefits to dental implants.
They are a more conservative treatment option and do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support. Dental implants may also restore your bite's full capacity, allowing you to enjoy experiences such as eating more fully. Apart from these practical benefits, patients also gain renewed confidence about their appearance.
Why Choose A Dental Implant?
While dental implants are an excellent long-term treatment option, not every patient can receive dental implants. In order 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 for you.
If you do have one or more missing teeth, you may be suitable for a dental implant if you have the following:
- Healthy, full-grown jawbone
- Healthy gums, free from disease
- Healthy bone, with no conditions
Dental Implants Cost Sydney
The cost of dental implants in Sydney with a local lab-made crown would cost from $4500-$7000 per tooth. The cost of your implant procedure depends on the complexity of your individual needs.
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
- Better comfort
- More self-confidence
If you have received poor dental treatment, such as ill-fitting dentures, your speech may suffer. Dental implants can help support your mouth or existing teeth and provide stability and functionality to improve your speech.
Dental 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 implant dentists Sydney, you will discover a new comfort level to restore your missing teeth.
Gapped, crooked or even missing teeth can affect your 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.
The cost of a dental implant will vary depending on the type of implant, how many implants are needed and if any pre-implant dental work is needed to prepare your mouth. A general guideline will look like this. A single dental implant with local lab-made crown would cost anywhere from $4500-$7000.
- Initial consultation: assessment, scans and x-rays are done to plan where the implants go.
- Implant Placement: the implant is fixed to the jawbone.
- Digital Scan/mould: a scan is taken to find the perfect shape for the crown.
- Crown placement: the crown is fitted with a small screw that is attached to the implant.
