Brisbane Dental Implant Surgery

Dental Implants are the modern and optimum form of replacing lost teeth. Essentially an implant is a titanium metal alloy screw that is inserted into the jawbone, the bone regrows around it and this forms a secure base to which crowns, bridges or denture can be attached.

Implants are generally placed either with a local anaesthetic, intravenous sedation or general anaesthetic, depending on the quantity to be implanted and also the patient’s preference.
The gum is cut open exposing the bone underneath into which a hole is drilled and the implant screwed in, lastly, the gum is restitched and then left to heal before the prosthetics are attached.

You are likely to require the rest of the day off after an implant, or possibly a day or two depending on the size and scale of the dental surgery.

As with any incision in the mouth, it is really important to keep the area clean to improve the chances of success and prevent infection. Do this with either mouthwash or salt rinse.

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Dental Implants are a great option for people with missing or removed teeth. They allow a more natural sensation when you eat, talk, drink or even just brush your teeth. Dental implants in most cases only require a short amount of time for the implant to feel normal after losing the original tooth and it is just as strong as the tooth it’s replacing. Dental Implants are also a more effective solution than if you were to replace your teeth with dentures or bridges which don’t last as long, so this is a better option for younger people who may need this treatment where a mouth trauma or injury has occurred.
