Dental Implants in Canberra
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are one of the options to replace missing teeth, providing a long-term stable solution for a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. We not only replace your tooth, we make sure it looks great by using a natural looking crown to cover your long-lasting titanium root.
Dr Joseph Tidimane provides the latest in dental implant expertise, having graduated from the University of Sydney Graduate Diploma in Clinical dentistry (Oral Implants). He also holds a Certificate of Surgical Implant dentistry from the University of Melbourne. He continues to attend Implant courses and conferences locally and abroad fine-tuning his implant dentistry skills. He is a member of the International Team of Implantology (ITI).
So many benefits of dental implants!
Dental implants integrate with your jaw bone, and replicate your missing tooth, making them one of the best innovations to come to modern dentistry. With osseointegration, you will enjoy a longer-lasting smile and an aesthetic restoration for many years.
- You can replace missing teeth: dental implants are strong and stable functioning like a natural tooth
- No more removing your teeth, slurring your speech or limiting your food choices. You can anchor loose dentures so that they don’t slip when you talk or eat
- With no denture plastic covering over your palate, you can taste your food
- With dental implants, we can also replace several teeth in a row and support bridges as well as other solutions for replacing missing teeth, and in the process restoring your smile.
- With your restored smile and improved chewing, you will enjoy socializing and won’t avoid dating
The feedback we consistently receive from our patients is that “there was much less pain than they ever thought”. And that it hurt more to have a tooth removed.
Like natural teeth, dental implants need to be flossed and brushed twice daily, consistently. This ensures healthy gums and bone around them. You also have to attend the dentist 6 monthly for routine checks and cleans as required and to avoid harmful habits like using your teeth as tools.
The actual placement/ insertion of the implant into the jaw bone takes just under an hour. This procedure is preceded by a pre-treatment visit where we take a 3D xray (CBCT) and optical scans of your teeth to determine the amount of bone you have, the location of important structures like nerves and sinuses, and even fabricate a special stent to help place the implant in an optimum position. At the time of implant insertion, its stability is tested, and checked again three months later before connecting a crown.
Their long-term value far exceeds that of other tooth restoration methods, and there is no question that they are a worthwhile investment. The cost of dental implants varies according to individual need and the extent of correction required. If you have dental (extras) health insurance, some of the insurers may cover a portion of the expense. Dr Joseph Tidimane will be happy to provide you with a detailed price quote during your personal consultation. Our reception staff will be able to talk you through the option of an interest free payment plan, which may help make this dental treatment accessible.
