Dental Implants in Rouse Hill

Yes Dental offers comprehensive dental implant treatment in Rouse Hill NSW. With dental implants, you can permanently restore your smile’s function and appearance in the years ahead. No other restoration mirrors the natural anatomy of the teeth in a way the implants do!

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are biocompatible, hypoallergenic tooth replacements. They essentially mimic the function of an anatomical tooth root.

Once installed, your body naturally integrates with the surface of the implant, fusing it firmly in place. Implants are so successful that they’re now regarded to be the gold standard in tooth replacement. A properly integrated dental implant is stronger than natural teeth.

Advantages of Dental Implants

At Yes Dental, our Rouse Hill dental implants are excellent for restoring single or multiple teeth. They can be adapted for individual teeth or full-mouth reconstruction, depending on the patient. In some cases, as few as four implants can permanently support a full-arch hybrid restoration.

Dental implants:

  • Are non-invasive to your natural teeth
  • Promote healthy, strong bone
  • Can last a lifetime
  • Are stronger than anatomical teeth
  • Support a fuller, healthier facial profile
  • Can support crowns, bridges, or dentures

Living with dental implants is the closest you’ll get to having natural teeth all over again. Each one stands independently of other teeth in your mouth, allowing you to brush and floss it easily.

Types of Dental Implant Restorations

Since your new dental implants function like a “root”, you’ll still need a restoration placed on top of it to smile and eat with. Depending on how many teeth you’re missing, you can choose between:

Single Implant Crowns
For an individual missing tooth, a single implant and crown are ideal. These restorations blend in quite well with your smile, making them almost indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth. Best of all, they can be placed immediately next to your other teeth without any negative side effects.
Implant-Supported Bridges
Do you have 3-4 teeth missing in one space? Instead of wearing a partial denture, you can elect to install two implants and a multi-tooth bridge on top of it. Since implants are quite strong, they can support longer bridges than you would typically place over a pair of healthy teeth.
There are various styles of dental implant dentures in use today. Some are stabilised, removable overdentures that clip or snap onto 2-4 implants underneath. Others are permanently attached in place, with a hybrid U-shape design that follows the natural curvature of your smile.

Rouse Hill Dental Implant Treatment Process

Getting dental implants in Rouse Hill isn’t a process anyone should rush. For your implant to completely integrate with the bone, it will need to rest inside of your jaw for at least a few months. After that, it can support more weight than even the healthiest teeth. In the meantime, your Rouse Hill dentist at Yes Dental can offer you a temporary tooth replacement option while things are integrating.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate for dental implants?
While dental implants are the best tooth-replacement method modern dentistry offers, they aren’t for everyone. Patients will need to attend an initial consultation at our Rouse Hill practice to determine if implants are a suitable treatment for them. Typically patients need to have good oral health and be medically fit to undergo surgery. Dental x-rays and a CBCT scan will also determine if there is sufficient bone in your jaw to support a dental implant. Some patients need additional treatments such as a bone graft or sinus lift before having dental implants.
Why are dental implants better than dentures for some people?
You can’t get any closer to natural teeth than dental implants. Rouse Hill patients often complain of their dentures slipping when they speak or eat and of being unable to eat certain foods. Unlike dentures that rest on the bony ridge, our Rouse Hill dentist places dental implants into the jawbone. Eventually, the titanium implant fuses with the surrounding bone and gum tissue to become a permanent fixture in the mouth and is strong enough to support an artificial tooth replacement. Because implants function like natural teeth, they halt bone loss and prevent jaw shrinkage that causes dentures to loosen and slip.
How long do dental implants last?
You may have heard that a dental implant can last forever, but usually, at our Rouse Hill clinic in NSW, we tell patients that with good care, implants can last for up to 10 years and often longer. The key to dental implant longevity is maintaining good oral hygiene with daily brushing and flossing combined with regular dental check-ups and cleaning. While the titanium post can last a lifetime, the dental crown will need replacing after 10-15 years.
Is dental implant surgery painful?
Getting dental implants at our Rouse Hill clinic is relatively comfortable. Extensive preliminary planning ensures surgery is faster, safer and more comfortable for the patient. Implant surgery is usually performed under local anaesthetic and with or without sedation, depending on the patient’s preference. While a patient shouldn’t feel any significant pain during surgery, once the numbness wears off, their mouth is likely to feel sore, and their jaw may feel stiff. They may also experience slight swelling. However, most Rouse Hill patients say the results are worth any discomfort.
Am I too old for dental implants?
The good news is there is no upper age limit for dental implants. Our Rouse Hill dentists are more concerned with your oral health than your years. However, patients of any age need to be in good health to undergo surgery and be committed to a process that can take several months to complete. Come in for a free consultation with our dental implant experts in Rouse hill today.
Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
