Are you missing one or more teeth? Have you considered dental implants as a treatment option? In this comprehensive guide by Channon Lawrence Dental, we will explore everything you need to know about dental implants, from the benefits and risks to the procedure and costs.


What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are metal screws that are used in place of the root of a missing tooth. The screw is usually made of titanium and is attached to the bone in your jaw. Your dentist or dental practitioner will attach an artificial tooth to the implant.


Dental implants are a popular restorative treatment option for people missing one or more teeth. They can significantly improve your confidence in your smile, enable you to eat normally, and prevent further damage to the adjacent teeth.


Benefits and Risks of Dental Implants

The decision to get a dental implant is not one to take lightly. It is important to discuss the benefits and risks with your Gympie dentist, Dr Mark Cull, to make an informed decision. In this section, we will delve deeper into the benefits and risks of dental implants to help you understand if they are the right option for you.


Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Improved confidence in how your teeth look

  • Allows you to eat normally

  • Feels like your natural teeth

  • Nearby teeth are not affected during dental implant treatment.

Risks

  • Infection

  • Nerve damage

  • Sinus problems

  • Injury or damage to your surrounding teeth or blood vessels


The Dental Implant Procedure

One of the most important aspects of dental implants is the procedure itself. The implant process usually involves three stages.

1. The implant: a dental implant is surgically inserted into your jaw bone. 2. The abutment: once the implant has been fused with the jaw bone, a healing abutment (healing cap) is placed on the implant surgically by opening the gum. Your prosthesis will be made after this procedure. 3. The restoration: placement of prosthesis (the part that looks like the teeth).

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost Australia?

Pricing for dental implant treatment varies depending on the individual. At Channon Lawrence Dental, the treatment generally starts at $5,000. We offer payment plans and finance options that can spread the cost over several months.


A dental implant is not cheap, however, we find that most people are always so happy that they invested in a high quality and long term tooth replacement option.


Make sure you know all the costs of your treatment before you start. If you have private health insurance, find out how much you will get back. If you have a Veterans Gold or White Card, you may be able to claim the cost of your dental implants from Medicare.


Dr Mark Cull is always very open, upfront and transparent with costs. There are no hidden costs or surprises!!


Can Everyone Have Dental Implants?

Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants, and it's up to your dentist to determine if it's the right treatment for you.


Dr Mark Cull or one of other dentists at Channon Lawrence Dental will assess several dental factors, including whether there is enough bone to support the implant and if any medical conditions or medications you're taking might affect the procedure.


It's crucial to inform your dentist about your health and medical history. People with active severe gum disease (periodontitis) or who smoke cigarettes may find suitability to this type of dental treatment challenging.


Make sure you get reliable advice from an experienced dentist like Dr Mark Cull.
