Hi, Dr Miranda Sageman here from Bespoke Dental in Turner, Canberra.
I just had a consultation with a new patient Rod from O’Connor this morning. He has been wearing a partial denture for a long time, and he now wants a more permanent and comfortable solution. Together, we decided dental implants would be the best solution for him. During our conversation, he asked me… Dr Miranda, what is the process of dental implants, how does it work?
So I thought I’d make a quick video sharing with you what I shared with him, just in case you are also considering this treatment.
Dental implants allow you to replace a missing tooth or a number of missing teeth that is fixed and natural looking.
There are three components to the dental implant.
The first step is that a specialised surgeon places the titanium fixture into your jawbone. Local anaesthetic and sometimes sedation is used during this procedure so you often won’t feel a thing.
After a healing period of eight to twelve weeks, you will come back to Bespoke Dental, where we will take a customised impression of the fixture relative to the other teeth in your mouth, and have a highly-trained ceramic technician make an implant crown that looks and feels like your natural teeth.
Once this is made, we then fit the constructed crown via the abutment, onto the fixture in your jaw, secured with a gold screw.
After the treatment is complete, you get to chew and smile with confidence, as the crown will look so natural it will be undetectable to your friends and family.
So if you have missing teeth or badly broken down teeth, and are looking for a permanent and comfortable solution, we would love to look after you. Simply call us on 02 6249 1391, complete the form on our website, or direct message us on social media, and we work out if a dental implant can benefit you.
