What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implant

Dental implants have revolutionised the replacement of missing teeth and can improve your oral health. Depending on your personal needs, this dental implant procedure could be for a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth.

As you may know, each of our natural teeth are made up of a crown (the top part you use to bite with) and a root (that connects the tooth to inside your jaw bone). This replicates these natural parts in order to give you the best results. Implants are made up of a crown (the top part you will use to eat with) and an implant fixture (a small titanium screw placed in your jaw) and an abutment (that connects the two parts together). This combination, the perth dental implant, is the preferred long-term treatment option to replace your missing tooth or missing teeth, as it offers the most natural-looking, feeling, and functioning result.

Do I need Dental Implants?

Perth Dental Implants could be the preferred treatment option if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • I have lost one or a number of my original teeth / missing teeth.

  • I suffer from advanced gum disease that is affecting my dental health.

  • I find wearing my dentures uncomfortable.

  • My facial appearance has started to change.

  • I can’t eat what I want anymore – forget steak or chewy foods.

  • My teeth have started to move around and my bite doesn’t line up.

  • My missing teeth affect how I talk and sound.

  • I’m unhappy with my smile and I feel self conscious.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

There are many advantages to tooth implants, including:

  • Tooth Implants offer the most natural-looking, feeling, and functioning teeth result.

  • Implants feel very similar to your natural teeth, similar aesthetics to natural-looking teeth that allow you to eat all types of foods.

  • Tooth Implants are fixed in your mouth which removes the mobility and discomfort that can occur with removable options.

  • Tooth Implants prevent adjacent teeth from moving, creating alignment problems.

  • They stimulate and preserve the remaining bone, unlike removable dentures which can cause bone loss.

  • The positive psychological impact with the feeling of being truly rehabilitated – no more missing teeth – so you can show off your smile and build up your self esteem.

Our Dental Implants Process

Dental Implant flowchart

Phase One

Obtaining all the information we need

At your missing teeth consultation appointment, we will review your medical history and you will undergo an oral examination and your dentist will discuss all the suitable teeth replacement options available for you. It is likely that impressions, xrays, scans and photos will be taken, and a comprehensive treatment plan will be organised for you. The proposed treatment will be discussed in detail with you to ensure you fully understand the risks and treatment involved, and the dental implant costs.

Our Aria Treatment Coordinators are then available to answer any of your dental implant questions, discuss your sedation ‘sleep dentistry’ choices, share financial options and will be your main point of contact when it comes to accepting your treatment plan and booking in your surgical appointment once you are ready to proceed. 

Phase Two

The Dental Implant Placement

Once you have accepted your treatment plan, completed your medical consent forms, and paid your deposit you will receive a surgical date with our specialist Prosthodontist. This is where your dental implant fixture/s will be surgically placed, under local anaesthetic – you may have also decided to choose a sedation / sleep dentistry option too.

This is the surgical phase of dental implant perth therapy. The implant fixture will be placed into your jaw bone. This stage may also include removal of teeth and/or bone grafting if required to be completed. A temporary tooth may also be placed during the healing period.

Phase Three

Healing period

Once the dental implant has been placed, we will need to check to see that it is healing correctly. A post operative appointment will be made for you 12 weeks after the surgical procedure. The actual number of post-implant-assessment-appointments required will depend on the complexity of your procedure and whether you have any personal risk factors that could compromise the healing of the implant.

Phase Four

Second stage of dental implant surgery (if required)

Depending on the type of your treatment (single tooth, full arch etc) and how the implant has been placed, you may require additional surgical visits and undergo the associated healing periods. 

Phase Five

The Crown

A silicone or digital impression of the implant site in your mouth will be taken to design and fabricate your crown. The correct colour shade will be assessed and usually a ‘try-in’ appointment is required so we can ensure the perfect fit, shape, and natural colour match of the implant crown.

If you have been referred to Aria Dental, it is at this stage that you will return to your local dentist to complete your treatment – otherwise the placement of your new dental implant crown will be scheduled at Aria Dental and completed by one of our highly skilled restorative dentists.

Phase Six

Maintenance

Dental hygiene, regular maintenance and assessment are critical to long term success of your implant. A review of the dental implants and healing of the gums is essential to ensure there are no minor issues. We recommend regular initial check-ups and to always follow the directions of your dentist &/or oral health therapist. Dental Implants are an investment and you need to look after them!

Teeth Implants Costs

Every patient has different requirements, so their dental implants cost do differ accordingly. However, we’ve put together the following information as an approximate guide on the cost of dental implants.

Depending on your required treatment and skill of your dentist, the final cost of dental implants in Perth, the Australian Dental Industry will range from approximately $3,750 to $7,000 for a single implant.

A basic ‘All on 4’ (acrylic bridge supported by just 4 dental implants) costs start at approximately around $25,000, but depending on your needs, maybe more. Quoting on a treatment plan for dental implants perth should be done at a proper dental implant consultation, to allow for an accurate and thorough clinical assessment specific to you. Some those looking for the cheapest options, may consider overseas treatment but there are risks associated with that and understood that an invasive procedure carries risks.

The cost of dental implants in Perth will differ person to person, which is why at Aria we don’t offer definitive quotes for dental implants over the phone or online. You can read up on why we don’t offer online treatment plan quotes HERE.

What to consider when reviewing the Cost of Dental Implants in Perth?

When considering implants, it’s essential that you factor in all of the potential costs that may be involved for YOU.

The Dental Implants

The implant itself comprises three parts, the implanted fixture, the abutment, and the crown, used to replace missing teeth. These can often be quoted in two stages, the dental implants fixture/s, then the abutment & the crown – make sure you are accounting for both. It’s important to consider the grade of the crown. Some dentists offer more generic and low-quality plastic crowns, but you may prefer high quality, aesthetically designed and better fitting ceramic crown, which we custom made at Aria Dental.

The Location

We have state-of-the-art technology which makes the surgical process smoother and easier for the patient, isn’t available in every clinic. The skill level and experience of your surgeon, your assisting dentist, your dental assistant or dental nurse all contribute towards your final result. Are you considering having implant surgery in a foreign country open to different levels of hygiene, or safe in Australia with our very high levels of monitored surgical sterilisation? Make sure you fully understand the risks and costs involved in implants should things go wrong.

The Procedure

Are you getting a removable denture that is clipped on and off implants or getting a fixed implant solution? If you have been missing teeth for a period of time, do you need a bone graft?

If you still have some ‘old’ teeth that need to be removed, have you accounted for their removal? Are you just having a local anesthetic, or would you prefer to have a higher level of sedation? Are you happy having a general dentist perform your dental implant surgery, or do you want a fully qualified dental specialist, a Prosthodontist to complete your oral surgery? Does your regular dentist have the experience to manage potential complications should problems occur? You also might like to investigate our Same Day Dental Implants Perth option?

Health Funds Insurance Rebates

Dental Implant costs are important, but if you have major dental cover with a health fund, you may get a reasonable amount of money back for your dental implants procedure; however, it won’t cover everything.

The amount of cover depends on your health funds level of cover, and how many years you’ve been with the health fund. For an accurate rebate figure, you‘ll need to have had an initial consultation with one of our Aria implant dentists Perth who will produce a itemised treatment plan provided for you.

You can then check this plan with your health funds representative, or we can give you a rebate summary via our HICAPS machine to find out approximately how much you will be refunded.

Future Dental Care

At Aria Dental is a specialised clinic for Dental Implants in Perth, we provide you with a detailed plan and provide you with all the information about your procedure. After your implants have been placed, there is a level of post-treatment dental care and maintenance that will occur.

The dental implant surgery is just the first step in a long relationship with your dental implants dentist ensuring your medical history is managed correctly. The Aria Dental team will be there with you every step of the way when it comes to caring for you and building up your self esteem.

Dental Implant Treatment FAQs

We’ve put together some of the most common questions to help you make an informed decision.

What are the best dental implants?

Also known as tooth implants, dental implants are an artificial tooth replacement for a missing tooth. Implants are made of a titanium alloy and are surgically inserted into the jaw bone to support the replacement tooth or teeth.

Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?

Most adults can have implants providing their jaw bone has finished growing, and they are in good dental health to undergo a surgical procedure. Anyone who is missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or tooth decay may be a candidate for dental implants. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, however. If you have been missing your teeth for many years and the bone has resorbed, you may require bone grafting or augmentation before the procedure. The best candidates have healthy gum tissue free of periodontal disease. There are some medical conditions such as diabetes and osteoporosis, or lifestyle choices such as smoking, that may need to be addressed before dental implant treatment. You need to be assessed by a dedicated implant dentist to determine your eligibility first at our Aria Perth dental implant centre. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.

Are all Implant Dentists the same?

Not all dentists are trained in dental implants in perth dentistry. It is important to understand that there is significant variation in not only the cost but the quality of your  treatment. The factors that influence the quality and outcome of your dental implant perth treatment include the:

  • formal qualifications, experience and expertise of the dental surgeon
  • type of implant used; not all implants are the same
  • equipment and facilities used to perform the procedure
  • skill of the dental technician when fabricating the crown / bridge / prosthesis
  • dental laboratory and materials used to fabricate the crown / bridge / prosthesis

When choosing where to have your treatment, please consider every detail carefully.

There should be very little or no compromise in terms of the quality of the materials used and you should be proud to say ‘your my implant dentist’.

Are dental implants expensive?

“Dental implants cost Perth” or “cheapest dental implants in perth” is a very searched term online and one patient are always focused on. The initial cost of having a dental implant procedure is greater than that of a denture or a tooth-supported fixed bridge. If maintained adequately, however, implants can last a lifetime, making the long-term cost affordable.

When considering costs, it is also important to consider the ‘biological cost’ of dental treatment; that is, the biological impact it has on the tooth and the likelihood of needing future treatment. The biological cost of having a denture or a tooth-supported bridge is far greater than that of an implant, and when this is taken into consideration, the dental implant is much more cost-effective.

Is dental implant surgery painful?

As with any other routine oral treatment, we place your implants under local anaesthetic at our specialist Perth Dental Implant Centre.

If required, we also provide additional sedation options to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. As with any surgery, you may be given analgesics and medications to ensure your comfort during the healing phase.

The skill, experience and care of the clinical team will also determine your pain, do your research on the best dental implants perth reviews to find out what other patients say. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.

How long will dental implants last?

Once your implant/s have successfully fused to the bone and are functional, it should last many years, with proper dental hygiene and if cared for properly. Many implants have now been in place for more than 40 years.

If you selected your treatment based on dental implants perth wa costs alone, the quality of your crown may need to be replaced or updated as it ages.

 

How do I take care of my dental implants?

Dental hygiene of your Dental Implants in Perth need to be adequately cleaned and maintained just like your other teeth. Learn how here!

 

Although they are not subject to dental cavities, if not properly cared for, they can develop gum inflammation and even infection and bone loss. Brushing and flossing around your dental implants is extremely important.

In addition to daily home care, it is important to maintain regular visits to your Implant Dentist Perth who will be able to review and ensure the surrounding gums and bone remain healthy ensuring a long life for your dental implant perth.

What are the complications that can occur with Dental Implants?

Implants are safe and effective and have a very high success rate. However, as with all surgical or invasive procedures, there are risks involved when placing dental implants. Before proceeding, you should seek an opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner, like a specialist Prosthodontist, who is registered with the Australian Dental Association

These may include:

  • Infection at the implant site
  • Injury or damage to surrounding structures, such as other teeth or blood vessels
  • Nerve damage, which can cause pain, numbness or tingling in your other teeth, gums, lips or chin
  • Sinus problems, when dental implants perth are placed in the upper jaw protrude into one of your sinus cavities

There are also several risk factors that may increase the risk of implant failure such as smoking and periodontal disease. It is important to discuss any general medical conditions such as diabetes and osteoporosis before commencing dental implant treatment. Ensuring you see an experience and qualified dental professional will ensure minimise complications and ensure you have the best dental implants perth.

Optimal home care and professional maintenance will also reduce the risk of any future complications or infection so your dental implants can last you a lifetime!

What happens if I don’t replace my missing teeth?

When you’ve been living without your natural teeth for some time, there have been no tooth roots to stimulate the bone. This results in your jaw bone weakening and shrinking, and can affect the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged. Placing dental implants can significantly reduce this process, helping to maintain the natural bone structure and support your facial features. Before chosing to not proceed, you should seek a opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Why are Dental Implants better than dentures?

Dentures are often ill-fitting and uncomfortable to wear, making it difficult to speak clearly and eat a wide variety of foods. Many conventional denture wearers have a restricted nutritional intake – even when eating alone – as they find it difficult to chew their food. This restricted nutritional intake can have a detrimental effect on their health and emotional well-being. With dental implants, your new replacement teeth are far more stable, allowing you to function as if you would with normal teeth.

Additionally, as dentures sit on top of the gums and are not anchored to the jaw bone, they don’t stimulate the bone, resulting in increased jaw bone loss. Conversely, dental implants keep the bone stimulated, healthy and strong.

Read more on our analysis of dentures versus implants.

How long does a Dental Implant Procedure Take?

A dental implant placements perth journey can take around 3-6 month, or up to 12 months for full arch treatments – but all time frames are depending on each patient’s individual circumstances.

What Is The Recovery Time For Dental Implants?

Each individual’s dental treatment and circumstances are unique to them. But as a guide, depending on the type of  surgical procedure/s you can estimate that the recovery periods, will take anywhere between 5-20 days depending on each patient’s individual circumstances.

 

Are there alternative options to dental implants?

Yes, if implants are not an option for you, your implant dentist Perth or our Dental Specialist will advise alternative options. Alternatives to implants include a tooth-supported fixed bridge, partial dentures, complete dentures, or a resin-bonded bridge.

It is important to speak to your health practitioner on your suitability to proceed with any surgical or invasive procedure, like Dental Implants Perth Western Australia. Before proceeding, you should seek an opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner, like a specialist Prosthodontist.
