Dental Implants – Brisbane Southside
Dental implants are a screw made from titanium or titanium alloy, as these materials have proven over the years to be well tolerated by bone. In fact, titanium has been chosen as it is able to maintain a close union with bone, in order to support replacement teeth.
Which dental implant system are right for you?
Dental implants can be confusing. All on 4, bridges, dentures, one or many implants?
There are many different implant systems available and when used in the correct application they can all deliver a highly reliable form of treatment for replacing missing teeth. We recommend you discuss all the different systems available with your dentist to understand each and together work out which one suits your situation the best.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is the titanium screw that is essentially a substitute for your natural tooth root. It is commonly a modified cylinder shape.
Each implant is surgically placed into your jawbone in the location of the intended replacement tooth.
The main aim during this placement procedure is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone.
This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into the microscopic roughness on the implant surface itself.
After placement, an implant fuses together with the jawbone. This process is known as Osseointegration. Once this process is complete, our dentist will then attach a crown, denture or bridge on top, to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
