Restorative Implants in Midland

Dental Implants Midland

Not just restoring your smile

Dental implants are one of the most innovative developments in dentistry today. One of the many benefits of dental implants is they look, feel and function just like natural teeth. They also provide an alternative solution to crowns, bridges or uncomfortable and loose dentures.

A dental implant is a fine titanium rod or screw that’s placed precisely into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. Once in place, the dental implant integrates with the bone and replicates a missing natural tooth root.

Titanium has been used extensively and successfully in reconstructive orthopaedic surgery for many years.

Dental implants can replace one or several missing teeth. In some cases, an entire upper or lower (or both) arch of dentures can be supported by dental implants.

For most patients at Helena Street Dental Midland, the procedure to receive a dental implant involves three separate stages:

  • Placement of the implant into the jaw bone
  • Placement of the abutment (also called a connector) to the implant
  • Attachment of the artificial tooth/teeth (crown, bridge or denture) to the abutment.

From surgical placement of the implant to attachment of the crown or bridge can take between three to six months or more. This depends on several factors including your general and dental health and bone density.

Like natural teeth, artificial teeth that are not regularly brushed and flossed can develop plaque and tartar, which can develop into gum disease. That’s why it’s important to maintain a regular and thorough at-home oral care routine and attend check-up appointments at Helena Street Dental Midland every six months.

If you’re missing one tooth or several teeth, schedule a consultation appointment with one of the Helena Street Dental Midland team to discuss if you’re a suitable candidate for dental implants. You can call us on (08) 9250 3100 or visit our practice at 2/42 Victoria Street, Midland WA 6056.
