Dental Implants

Dental Implants ToowoombaRob will discuss your options at the consultation, then make an appropriate referral to a specialist, who will surgically place the implant. After surgery you will return to our practice to have your final implant restoration(s) placed (such as a crown or bridge).

What Does the Dental Implant Process Involve?

During your initial implant consultation, Dr Sivertsen will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth. This may also include a full set of radiographs to ensure there is sufficient bone structure and gum thickness to support your implant.

The dental implants are developed from medical grade titanium and act as a substitute for the missing tooth’s root. Once placed in the jawbone, the implant provides a solid foundation to which a crown or bridge may be secured.

After placement, your implant is left to bond with your jawbone, a process that may take several months, during which time a provisional denture, crown or bridge (acting as a tooth) may be in place. This not only allows your mouth to function normally, but also helps you to retain the appearance of a natural smile.

Once the implant site has healed, your temporary tooth is removed and replaced with your new, permanent tooth. Dental implants can help you achieve a rejuvenated, healthy, and natural-looking new smile.

Schedule a Consultation

Depending on your current oral and overall health, the process of receiving your implant, bonding with your jawbone and receiving your new teeth can take anywhere between 3 to 6 months. Our team will be able to give you a more accurate estimation after your initial consultation.
