Dental Implants Fortitude ValleyIf you’re missing a single tooth, several teeth or need a full set of teeth replaced, dental implants are an excellent option. The team at Fortitude Valley Dentist is experienced in placing implants and the subsequent crown, bridge or denture, so you can rest assured that you’re receiving the highest quality dental care.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw. After it has integrated into the jaw bone and is fully healed, a restoration such as a crown, denture or bridge can be placed on the implant, completing the procedure and restoring the look and function of a beautiful smile.

The process takes a total of 3-6 appointments, over 1-6 months. The cost of a dental implant is $4000-$5000.

What to Expect For a Dental Implant

There are three distinct phases involved in getting a dental implant. In the following, you can learn more about what to expect each step of the way. Initially, we need to evaluate you and determine that a dental implant is the correct solution to address your needs and that you are a candidate. If so, we’ll proceed with the next steps.

Step 1: The implant is placed in your jawbone. A healing time takes approximately three months for the implant to integrate into the bone. If appropriate, we can fit you with a temporary crown that can be worn until we can affix a permanent crown. Occasionally, you may need teeth extracted before the implant can be placed. If so, we will complete the extraction and allow it to heal before starting.

Step 2: Impressions will be taken of the area surrounding the implant, which will then be sent to the laboratory. There, your crown, bridge or denture will be created for you.

Step 3: Your restoration will be sent back from the laboratory, and we’ll book you in for a follow-up to fit the device or prosthetic. After it has been attached, the procedure will be complete.
