Important facts

It’s important to have all the information when you’re considering dental implants. Where previously the option for replacing a tooth (or teeth) was dentures of some kind, our revolutionary dental implants give you the freedom of a full mouth of beautiful teeth with minimal impact to your lifestyle.

Here is some information about the dental implant procedure:

  •  Dental implants replace one or more missing teeth

  • The dental implant process consists of two important procedures:
          - Surgical placement of a post 
          - Prosthodontic rehabilitation

  • Implants restore oral functions such as eating and speech

  • Implants are aesthetically pleasing and acceptable, thanks to the visual appeal of the tooth implant

  • If proper care and maintenance is done, dental implants could last a lifetime

  • Only quality TGA approved dental implants are placed at Southside Family Dental!

What are our dental implants made of?

At Southside Family Dental, only the finest and best quality materials are used.

There are two procedures involved in doing dental implants: 

  •  Stage 1: Surgical Procedures
         o   Materials used:
               - Titanium Dental Implants
               - Ceramic Dental Implants

  • Stage 2: Prosthodontic Rehabilitation 
         o   Materials used: 
               - Ceramics
               - Porcelain
    ​           - Porcelain fused to metal

All titanium dental implants are threaded into your jawbone in a procedure that is no more invasive than a tooth extraction. This implant is then kept in the bone, undisturbed for between two and six months, while your jaw acclimatises to the material.

Once the bone has bonded to your new implant, it is uncovered and attached to a metal post which supports your brand new artificial tooth. Our procedures are state-of-the-art and designed to take place with minimal interruption to your natural smile and lifestyle. 


How long will my dental implants last?

With proper care and maintenance and absence of any systemic disease, the longevity of dental tooth implants made by Southside Family Dental Brisbane and Toowoomba could last up to 10 years or more.

How long does the procedure take?

Can I get a dental implant?

At Southside Family Dental, we offer dental implants for patients who have lost one or more of their teeth.  You will be a good candidate for a tooth implant or dental implants if you have:

  • good oral hygiene for long term maintenance
  • adequate bone for support

  • a healthy periodontium

  • no systemic or medical diseases

  • no social problems such as smoking

After your dental implant procedure has been completed, you can manage your oral hygiene in the same way as you would with your regular teeth.

Our dentists will speak with you about after-care and give you advice on how to look after your new implants to ensure a healthy smile for the long term. 

 

What are the complications involved with dental implants?

Despite the best efforts of the dentists at Southside Family Dental, there is still a chance of failure. Failures in dental implants involve:

  • Peri-implantitis or inflammation of the gingiva around the implants. This occurs when patients do not maintain proper oral hygiene.

  • Implant or prosthesis failure is when a part (example the crown) or the whole (prosthesis plus implants) fail. This occurs if the patient has oral habits such as tooth grinding and bruxism.

  • Abutment screw failure occurs when the patient experiences any medical problems and bone failure.
