What are dental implants?
A dental implant procedure is part of a dental technique to replace a missing tooth. They’re the most realistic of the dental restoration options available and unlike dentures, there’s no limit to eating the foods you love. Also, unlike dentures, there’s no need for dental implants to be taken out for cleaning.
As with any restorative dental services though, there are some considerations you need to make before going ahead.
The benefits of dental implants
Everybody deserves to smile with confidence and dental implants have helped so many people regain their confidence and lifestyle.
Dental implants are a great option for people who have missing or severely damaged teeth, have experienced severe gum infection (also known as periodontitis) or are looking for an alternative to dentures.
Some of the benefits of choosing dental implants:
- Look and feel remarkably like real teeth
- They’re a long-lasting smile solution requiring minimal upkeep down the track
- Comfortable, because they’re unmovable. Essentially, dental implants become a part of you!
- No foods are off-limits as dental implants are as functional as natural teeth
- With the proper care and maintenance, dental implants are the longest-lasting option available
- Your oral health will improve, as will your confidence and smile.
What does the dental implant process look like?
Dental implants comprise of a crown (the porcelain, fake tooth), the abutment, which securely attaches the crown to the dental implant, and then of course, the dental implant itself which is the foundation for your crown.
Your dental implants team in Perth will provide you your very own treatment plan, outlining the costs, benefits and duration of the process.
Our dental implant process involves:
- Getting to know you and your teeth
- Implant replacement
- Healing period
- In some cases, a second, straightforward visit
- Attaching the crown
- Maintenance and care
Following your dental implant, you can care for your dental implants as you would your normal, natural teeth, which is brushing, flossing and utilising mouthwash daily. Remember, routine dental check-ups are also a part of your essential dental care.

Dental implants aren’t for everyone. Factors such as age, illness, medication and lifestyle can influence whether dental implants are right for you.
