A Highly-durable, Long-term Solution to Missing Teeth
Dental implants have become a popular solution to missing teeth due to the number of advantages.
They have a very high success rate, unlikely to break, won’t rot, and don’t harm the surrounding teeth in any way.
Implants are completely independent so the patients can rest easy knowing that if they need repair in the future this procedure won’t involve other teeth (unlike bridges). Although implants are highly-durable, they still require the patient to attend regular dental check-ups and maintain their oral hygiene.
Dental implant is a titanium or zirconia screw that integrates into the jawbone. A crown is secured to the implant either immediately or after few months (when the integration is solid).
Is an Implant Right for You?
If you’re considering a dental implant as a solution to a missing tooth, our team are here to help! Dr Matin offers a free 15-minute information session to patients where he discusses the pros and cons of implants, as well as how the treatment could suit their particular circumstances or not. Patients simply need to contact our practice and mention the free implant information session to schedule a time.
While this session serves purely as an informative discussion, rather than a check-up, patients are then able to book a gap-free implant consultation if they are interested in pursing the treatment. This first appointment acts as an examination and study session where x-rays and / or impressions are taken of the patient’s mouth. This allows Dr Matin to develop a personalised treatment plan, as well as advise on the total costs for this treatment.
Once the patient is happy to move forward with the treatment, they will be referred to a local radiographic centre for a CBCT scan. This scan provides a very accurate digital duplicate of the anatomical structure of the mouth and teeth, presenting it in 3D format to help Dr Matin plan the implant insertion. He can then design the patient’s implant according to diameter, length, site etc.
When the study phase has been completed, we will then ring the patient to let them know their implant has been received. From here, we can book an appointment for the patient to have the implant put in. This surgical session takes around an hour, however Perth Prime Dental uses modern technology, such as laser, in the implant surgery to ensure the process is easier and more convenient for the patient.
Thanks to our teams expertise, the entire implant surgery takes place within our practice.
