Located in the Adelaide CBD we are Adelaide’s choice for dental implants in Adelaide. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root consisting of a titanium screw that resembles a tooth root. It allows for missing teeth to be replaced and have the look and function of real teeth. It involves a multiple stage process where a titanium screw (similar to that used in a hip replacement) is placed into the bone structure. At the next stage an abutment is placed on the fixture providing a core for the final crown to be placed upon.
Here at Adelaide Dentalcare we cater to all types of dental implants. While we have had a lot of patients who are custom to crowns, bridges and dentures. Dental implants have allowed us to open up new avenues for tooth replacement. Dental implants are a great way to make your smile look and feel natural. We achieve this by having a thorough evaluation by one of our dentists to check that your gums are healthy and you have adequate bone structure to support the implant. Once this has been completed, you a one step closer to your dental implants.
Unlike bridges, there is no reshaping or cutting of neighbouring healthy teeth when an implant is placed. For the placement of a dental implant a surgical procedure has to be performed using local anaesthetic, identical to what is used for fillings or tooth removal. The pain and discomfort after the surgery is minimal. In order to receive dental implants you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You must also commit to keeping these structures healthy. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
