Life is too short to spend it hiding your smile or suffering from tooth pain. Thanks to the latest advancements in modern dentistry and our highly trained and skilled dentists, you can now live pain-free and with a completely restored smile.
Dental implants have changed the world of dentistry and are rapidly replacing dentures as the preferred way to replace missing teeth. They’re the first fixed dental appliance that function as though they’re natural teeth and allow the user to eat, smile, talk, laugh, play, sleep, breathe and act as if they were real.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing or unhealthy teeth and are an extremely versatile dental appliance, being able to replace as little as one tooth or a full arch. On top of the convenience of being permanent and the many associated health benefits, dental implants (if cared for properly) can last a lifetime!
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants are a strong, long lasting, natural looking replacement for missing teeth. Becoming an increasingly popular alternative to dentures due to their permanency, dental implants are a fixed solution, that look and function as though they’re real teeth.
Implants are permanently secured into the jaw to replace missing, damaged or jeopardised teeth to not only fill the gap or replace decayed teeth, but to prevent shrinkage of the jaw bone as well. Dental implants will not only enhance or restore a patients smile, but they also provide facial support, stability and a number of health benefits.
BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
- Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth – they look, feel, fit and function as a natural tooth would
- Preservation of the jaw bone – dental implants prevent bone atrophy by keeping stimulation between the tooth roots and the jawbone.
- Better nutrition and overall heath – due to being able to eat a wider variety of foods.
- Improvements to speech – no lisp from missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures.
- Comfortable – because dental implants are fitted and permanent, they feel as comfortable as natural teeth.
- Longevity – dental implants are extremely durable and often last a lifetime.
- Convenience – say goodbye to the inconvenience of removable dentures.
- Restored sense of confidence – dental implants look, feel and act as though they’re real teeth. No one will know the difference.
- No more cavities – decay can’t occur in a replacement tooth
- Protection of remaining healthy teeth – unlike a bridge, a single tooth implant does not require any support from neighbouring teeth.
- Prevent remaining teeth from moving – filling the gap a missing tooth has left with a dental implant, will prevent the neighhbouring teeth from moving into its gap, which in turn eradicates relating issues to changes in the bite and the problems this ensues.
- Retention of facial structure and shape – a face with missing teeth can sag and appear sunken and hollow. Dental implants help to support the lips and cheek, allowing the natural shape of the face and smile to be retained or restored.
HOW DO DENTAL IMPLANTS WORK?
Dental implants act as an artificial tooth root, and once positioned securely into the jaw, a false, natural looking tooth can be mounted onto it.
Dental implants are metal posts (usually made of titanium, which is what we use at our Perth clinic) that are surgically positioned beneath the gums and into the jawbone, allowing it to fuse with the natural bone and create a strong, sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Implants are extremely versatile and can be used to replace an individual tooth or for a denture that contains multiple teeth.
The following are examples of implant treatment we have performed on our many smiling patients.
Single Tooth Implants
For patients that are missing a single tooth; a combination of one dental implant and a crown can replace it. Using a dental implant to treat a single missing tooth has many aesthetic and health advantages over other solutions. Not only does it provide the most natural tooth looking replacement, the implant will also replace the tooth root, ensuring that stimulation is kept in the jaw bone and preventing bone loss. This will help to keep the rest of your teeth healthy and prevent any more tooth loss in the future.
On top of this, using a dental implant to treat a single missing tooth will have no negative impact to the adjacent teeth. Unlike other dental solutions, such as a fixed bridge, which requires the teeth on either side of the false tooth to be filed to support the appliance. A massive benefit and attraction to dental implants is they do not compromise the health of neighbouring teeth.
Multiple Tooth Implants
In situations where there are two or more missing adjacent teeth, it may be possible to replace them by joining two or more implants together. For example, if a patient is missing three adjacent teeth, our dentists may only need to place two implants in the large space, rather than an individual implant for each missing tooth. Then the three artificial teeth will be connected together and mounted as one fixture on the two implants.
Combing several teeth on the one implant saves on time and money, making the dental implant procedure a lot more affordable for our Perth patients.
Full Arch & Full Mouth Implants (All-on-Four)
In the unfortunate circumstance of complete dentition failure, our dentists may recommend total rehabilitation of the teeth using a full arch or full mouth (both archs) implants, commonly referred to as All-on-Four treatment. This solution acts as a permanent solution to traditional dentures, providing the patient with a full set of fully functioning, natural looking teeth that are fixed to the jaw bone and act exactly as real teeth would.
This treatment is best suited to patients who have no teeth, or who’s current set of teeth are in bad health and need to be removed, as the All-on-4 technique requires all remaining teeth to be extracted. Once this is done, four titanium implants will be inserted into the mouth, which serve as an anchor for a full dental bridge to be mounted.

Our dentists practice guided implant surgery when planning dental implant treatments at our Perth facility. Guided implant surgery embraces modern technology and the use of computer systems, CT scans and 3-D imaging in the dental implant planning process, allowing dentists to visualize the placement of the implants and eliminating any guess work. Using this technology, our dentists can implant virtually first and then accurately place the implant in the most safe, predictable, and efficient manner.
What does this mean for our patients? Guided implant surgery ensures a more accurate and safer positioning of dental implants as well as a quicker surgery time, with teeth usually being fitted within an hour because our dentists have had time to look, plan and assess prior to operating.
