What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are designed to replace missing teeth by mimicking the natural structure of a tooth.
The dental implant post (or anchor) is made of titanium, a biocompatible material, and serves as an artificial tooth root. Your Dental Implant dentist Perth will anchor the implant screw surgically into your jawbone. Over time, the bone fuses with the implant in a process known as osseointegration, ensuring stability. This process usually takes between 3 and 6 months.

Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, multiple adjacent teeth, or even all of the teeth on the upper or lower jaw via All-on-4® . This adaptability makes them suitable for individual tooth restoration as well as comprehensive full-mouth rehabilitation. Additionally, dental implants can support dental bridges and secure dentures, enhancing the stability of other dental prostheses.
Dental implants (screw-in teeth) are considered the gold standard for tooth replacement because they provide a strong foundation for the dental prosthesis and have superior longevity. Patient satisfaction scores are also higher for dental implants compared to other teeth replacement alternatives.
Traditional Dentures: Traditional dentures are the most common type of dental implant. They’re also the most affordable option. Conventional dentures are made to fit your existing teeth and are held in place with dental adhesive. While traditional dentures are a good option for replacing missing teeth, they’re not as stable or secure as other dental implants types. They can also be uncomfortable and irritate your gums.
Implant-Supported Dentures: Implant-supported dentures are a more secure and comfortable option than traditional dentures. They are also more expensive. Implant-supported dentures are made to fit over your existing teeth and are held in place by dental implants. The implants are surgically placed in your jawbone, and the dentures are attached to the implants. While implant-supported dentures are more expensive, they’re also more comfortable and secure. They’re a good option for people who have trouble wearing traditional dentures.
Single-Tooth Implants: Single-tooth implants are a good option for people who are missing one tooth. Single-tooth implants are placed in the space left by the missing tooth. A single-tooth implant is made up of three parts: the implant, the abutment, and the crown. The dentist will place the implant in your jawbone. The abutment is placed on the implant, and the crown is placed on top of the abutment.
All on Four Implants: All on four implants are a good option for people who are missing all of their teeth. All on four implants are placed in the empty spaces left by the missing teeth. All-on-four implants are made up of four parts: the implants, the abutments, and the dentures.
Same-Day Dental Implants: Same-day dental implants are a good option for people who are missing one tooth or several teeth. Same-day dental implants are placed in the space left by the missing tooth or teeth. Same-day dental implants are a good option for people who want to replace their missing teeth quickly. No matter which type of dental implant you choose, you can be sure that you’re getting a high-quality, long-lasting tooth replacement option.
diagnosis and treatment planning
The first step in the dental implant process is diagnosis and treatment planning. Your dentist will start by thoroughly examining your mouth, teeth, and gums. They will also take X-rays and possibly CT scans to better look at your jawbone. This information will be used to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants and to develop a treatment plan.
placing the dental implants
It is a surgical procedure; the dentist will do it in a hospital or an outpatient surgical centre. Your dentist will make small incisions in your gums during the procedure and place the implants into your jawbone. Once the implants are in place, your dentist will close the incisions with stitches.
fitting the temporary implant bridges
After the implant posts are in place, your dentist will fit you with a temporary dental bridge. This bridge will replace the teeth that were removed and will help you to eat and speak normally while your jawbone heals. The bridge is usually made of porcelain or ceramic and is attached to the implant posts with small metal clasps.
final implant bridge inserted
After the dental implant has healed and the dentist is done creating a permanent implant bridge, your implant dentist will schedule a time to insert the bridge. It is usually done in one visit and does not require anesthesia. First, your dentist will clean your teeth and prepare the implant site. Next, they will place the implant bridge onto the implants. Finally, they will check to ensure the fit is correct and make necessary adjustments. Once the bridge is in place, you will be able to use it just like your natural teeth. You can brush and floss normally, and there are no dietary restrictions. With proper care, your implant bridge can last a lifetime.
Dental implants are one of the most popular and effective ways to replace missing teeth. They are designed to provide a long-term solution for people who have lost teeth due to injury, disease, or other reasons. There are many benefits of dental implants, including:
Improved Appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. They are permanently attached to the jawbone, so they will not move around as dentures can. It gives you the confidence to smile, speak, and eat without worry.
Enhanced Comfort: Because dental implants are securely attached to the jawbone, they do not rub or irritate the gum tissue like dentures.
Improved Oral Health: Dental implants do not require special care beyond regular brushing and flossing. They also help to preserve the jawbone, which can deteriorate without the support of teeth.
Durability: Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. They are a much more permanent solution than dentures or bridges, which need to be replaced every few years.
Convenience: Dental implants do not need removal for cleaning as dentures do.
Supercare: fully or partially covers dental implant funding, depending on your coverage. Their services extend to your immediate family and your child or children. You can also choose your preferred My Implant Dentist location. This option is specifically for those who do not have private insurance, access to sufficient funding, and a family member with Superannuation funds.
Afterpay: offers an app or an online application to make it easier. You’ll be able to pay in interest-free instalments every four fortnightly. You can avail of up to a maximum of $1,400 in dental coverage if approved. Currently, the Maven Dental Group accepts AfterPay for Dental Implants Perth. AfterPay is not a credit union or loan company, so you can create an account if you are at least 18 years old and above. You must also have a credit or debit card that you can link to your account.
Pretty penny: provides funding for crown or bridge implants. They offer fast approval and flexible payments, and the budget can go directly to your dentist instead of you waiting for it. Personal loans range from $2,000 to $70,000 with payment terms from 6 months to 7 years. You can apply for a loan online. The best thing about Pretty Penny is that you can top up your initial quote if it meets specific criteria.

Who is good candidate for dental implants? Your dental implant specialist at My Implant Dentist will conduct a thorough initial examination and design the most suitable treatment plan for your specific needs – for free. So, while it’s best to consult directly with your dentist, there are some factors to bear in mind.
Firstly, dental implants have a 95–98% success rate when placed by qualified implant dentists. So, if you have missing teeth, you are very likely a good candidate for dental implants.
Secondly, even if you have low bone density and need bone grafting, suffer from gum disease or osteoporosis, or have a history of smoking, you may still be eligible for dental implants. Your implant specialist will go through your medical history with you, and will alert you to any issues that could influence your implant procedure. My Implant Dentist offers multiple treatment options for dental implants, so we always develop individualised teeth replacement plans that work for you.
Dental implant pain is often described as being less severe than the pain associated with tooth extraction. Modern anaesthetics and pain control techniques have made getting dental implants a relatively painless process. You should not suffer from any acute pain, or pain and symptoms that persist longer than 10 days as you progress through the various stages of healing after surgery. If you do, contact your dentist immediately.
With the proper care, your implant can last more than 20 years – maintenance is important for achieving this. You’ll need to practise at-home oral hygiene twice a day, which includes brushing and flossing. You’ll also need to attend regular check-ups with your dentist, eat healthily, and stop smoking.
Most dental insurance plans do not cover dental implants. However, some plans may offer limited coverage, such as for the implant itself or the crown placed on the implant. It is important to check with your insurance company to see if they offer any coverage for dental implants.
Even if your insurance plan does not cover dental implants, there are still ways to finance the cost of implants. Many dental implant providers offer financing options, such as payment plans or loans. Several third-party financing companies offer loans specifically for dental implants.
If you consider dental implants, discuss all of your financing options with your implant dentist. They can help you find the best way to pay for your new teeth.
