ABOUT Dental Implants
Implants for teeth are made from titanium. It is a strong metal that is long-lasting and fuses with your jawbone. With proper care, implants can last for decades or even longer.
The average life expectancy of teeth implants is about 15 to 20 years. However, taking care of your oral health and visiting your dentist regularly is crucial to maintaining them.
Implants for teeth are a versatile treatment that can replace one or more missing teeth. However, not everyone is a candidate for this treatment. A good way to find out if you are suitable is to book a consultation with your dentist.
However, here are some general requirements to be eligible for the procedure. You have:
- A missing tooth or teeth
- Good dental health
- Healthy gums
- Sufficient bone density in your jaw to support the implant
- A willingness to maintain proper oral hygiene
- No medical conditions that can compromise healing
- No smoking habits
If you do not meet the above requirements, don’t worry. There are procedures available to increase your candidacy for dental implants. You may also consider other dental treatment options. Your dentist will discuss all these with you.
Most patients report feeling little to no discomfort during the dental implant procedure. This is thanks to the use of anaesthesia and other pain management methods. However, each patient has a different level of pain threshold, and it may vary from person to person.
It is normal to experience some soreness, bleeding, or tenderness afterwards. But, this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Remember to follow your dentist’s instructions carefully for a smooth and complication-free recovery.
The cost of dental implants in West Perth will depend on the type of procedure you undergo. Here are the average price ranges for the most common implant procedures:
- Single tooth implants: $4,000 – $5,500
- Implant-supported bridge: $7,000 – $8,600
- All-on-4 implants: $21,300 – $35,300
It must be noted that these are only estimates. The final fees will be determined by your specific case. Your dentist will be able to give you an accurate quote during your consultation. However, there are other factors that can affect the cost, such as:
- The number of implants to be placed
- Whether you need additional procedures
- The location of the dental clinic
- The skill and experience of your dentist
- Your dental health fund cover
The entire implant procedure is a complex process that involves many steps. The technology and equipment used for your diagnosis and treatment are costly. In addition, the materials used for your implants (titanium posts and abutments) are also premium.
The surgical procedure is a step that requires training and experience. A high level of skill is also needed to deliver effective results. All these factors contribute to the high cost of dental implants.
Though teeth implants are expensive, they are a long-term investment. The benefits they offer over other options make them well worth the cost.
It will depend on your individual health fund and plan. You will need to check with your private health insurer to see if you are covered for dental surgery and treatment. Several health funds cover dental implants.
However, there are some who consider it a cosmetic procedure and will not help with the fees. So, it’s definitely worth doing your research to see if you could be eligible for this benefit.
A dental implant procedure can vary depending on the number of teeth replacements you need, the type of dental implants, and other factors. You may ask the dentist at Mary River Dental for further details about your dental implants. Here, we provide the common steps that many dentists follow when performing oral surgery for placing these artificial teeth roots:
Before the oral surgery, you will receive anaesthesia (and/or dental sedatives). This helps to numb the surrounding area where the dental implants will be inserted.
The dentist will cut the gum tissues to gain access underneath. You will be given anaesthesia before the procedure so that you won’t feel pain.
They will carefully place the dental implants or metal posts into the jawbone.
The dentist will close the incision to promote healing once the dental implants are positioned under the gums and into the jawbone.
The entire procedure for dental implants involves multiple phases, and after the initial dental surgery, the cylinder posts will grow with the jawbone, which can take several weeks or months.
- Second surgery.
Once the dental implants are healed, another surgical procedure is necessary to attach the abutment, which will connect the dental crown or artificial teeth to the dental implants.
Taking care of your dental implants can be quite simple and only requires practising a good dental hygiene routine at home. Here are some tips for maintaining them:
For fixed dental implants:
- Brush your teeth as usual with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Use gentle circular motions when brushing around your dental implants to prevent applying excessive pressure.
- Opt for mild or non-abrasive toothpaste, as harsh chemicals can damage the tooth implant materials.
- Use a thin interdental brush to clean difficult areas between your teeth.
- Invest in oral irrigators to help reduce bacteria or debris buildup between your teeth.
For overdentures or implant-retained dentures (removable dental implants)
- Take off your overdentures and rinse them off in running water.
- Brush the bottom side of the denture with a soft toothbrush.
- Rinse your prosthetic thoroughly with water before wearing it again.
- Soak them in denture solution overnight to deep clean your overdentures.
Ask your dentist at West Perth Dental Centre for recommended products to care for your dental implants. Overall, regular dental visits are one way to care for them and monitor whether they’re in good condition.
Dental implants are widely used for teeth replacement as they have impressive success rates. They are relatively safe when performed by a qualified dentist, but as with any dental procedure, there are potential risks and complications. Including the following:
- Damage to adjacent teeth or blood vessels
- Sinus problems
- Nerve damage
We highly recommend seeing a dentist at West Perth Dental Centre for a dental implant consultation. Provide detailed information about your oral health history, health conditions, and medications you might currently be taking so they can rule out any conditions that might affect your treatment.
