What Does Getting a Dental Implant Involve?

Dental Implants ToowoombaDuring your initial implant consultation, Dentist Dr Rob Sivertsen will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth. This process 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. It takes about 3-4 months, during which time a provisional denture, crown or bridge (acting as a tooth) may be in place. Your mouth will then function normally, and you will 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.
