For those who do not have an adequate amount of jawbone material a bone graft is generally necessary before implant surgery can commence. This will be established at your initial consultation where our dentists will conduct a thorough dental assessment to ensure you are an ideal candidate for dental implant surgery. Generally ideal candidates include:
At Brisbane Dental Implant Group we usually complete the dental implant procedure in two phases, and this is generally for those who can proceed straight to implant placement without the need for a bone graft. Prior to proceeding to surgery our dental professional and specialists will discuss all aspects of your treatment including all associated costs, risks and any possible complications. This will help you make an informed decision about continuing to surgery.
This first stage of treatment is when your implant will be placed beneath the gum surface. We generally are able to perform this within our office as only local anesthesia or light sedation is required. This is simply to provide a comfortable experience for the patient, minimising any discomfort or pain. The team at Brisbane Dental Implant Group are highly trained to perform this procedure and utilise gentle surgical techniques when placing the implant at the site. A 3-6 month period of healing is required before moving to the next phase. This allows the implant to fuse to the jaw bone as would a natural tooth root, providing a solid foundation for the addition of the false tooth.
Now that the implant has been placed, acting as a natural tooth root, the next phase involves a replacement of the visible crown. As implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth or even a complete arch the false attachment will be unique to the patient need. During your initial consultation with Brisbane Dental Implant Group, we will recommend the best treatment for you based upon your tooth loss experience.
