Dental Implants in Armadale
Dental Implants Can Help You Eat, Speak, and Smile Confidently Again
Missing teeth can make it difficult to feel confident. Life can be very challenging when you can’t eat the foods you love, speak clearly, or smile with confidence.
Additionally, missing teeth can cause your jawbone to shrink, making you appear older. It can also lead to other oral health problems if left untreated.
Prospect Road Dental offers cutting-edge dental implants as a more long term option to replace missing teeth. Our experienced dentists will place the implant in your jawbone and attach a replacement tooth. Dental implants consist of titanium rods surgically implanted into the jawbone. Over time, the bone will grow around the rod and fuse it in place, which means you will have a strong anchor for a false tooth. Implants are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth, so you can enjoy all your favorite activities without feeling self-conscious. You’ll be able to smile, speak, and eat with confidence again.

What You Need To Know
FAQ About Our Dental Clinic In Armadale
below, please feel free to contact our practice. One of our friendly team members will be happy to assist you.
Missing teeth: If you have lost teeth due to tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma, dental implants can replace them. Missing teeth can make you self-conscious and embarrassed about your smile. You may also be self-conscious about speaking or eating in front of others due to the gaps in your smile. Dental implants can restore your beautiful smile.
Bone loss: The absence of teeth causes your jaw bone tissue to deteriorate, but dental implants stimulate the remaining bone tissue and prevent bone loss. A titanium or zirconium implant root bonds naturally with bone tissue through a process called osseointegration, helping to stimulate bone growth and stop bone deterioration.
Adjacent tooth migration: Gaps caused by missing teeth can cause teeth to shift, destabilising your bite. Having dental implants prevents adjacent teeth from shifting and causing alignment issues.
Difficulty chewing and speaking: Missing teeth can impair your ability to chew and speak. A dental implant feels, looks, and functions like a natural tooth. As such, you can eat your favorite foods confidently and painlessly. Furthermore, they can restore proper dental function and improve speech patterns.
Severely damaged teeth: It is sometimes impossible to manage a severely decayed tooth. If a decayed, cracked, or broken tooth cannot be repaired, you may need a dental implant. Most dentists try to preserve as much of a tooth’s natural structure as possible. However, if your tooth is too damaged to save, an implant replacing the extracted tooth may be the best option once the site has healed.
Loose-fitting Dentures: Dental implants are an ideal option to ill-fitting dentures and partials since they are permanently bonded to your jawbone. Implants will never fall out while you are speaking or eating. By using implants with dentures, your false teeth will hold more securely. The implants will ensure that your dentures stay in place, so you won’t have to worry about them slipping.
Facial Collapse: When you don’t have teeth, your jawbone can no longer support the structure of your face. Your facial structure, which depends on a solid and healthy jawbone to support all your teeth, will eventually collapse. It will also cause the muscles around your lips to deteriorate, resulting in wrinkles and making you appear older. By stimulating the growth of bone around the implant, dental implants eliminate this problem.
Every patient’s situation must be evaluated individually. We provide free consultations for our dental implant services in Armadale at Prospect Road Dental Surgery (terms and conditions apply). This will give you the chance to talk about your individual needs and learn more about dental implants.
Dental implants are generally recommended for dental patients who:
- are in good dental health to undergo extractions or dental surgery,
- are in good general health,
- possess a strong jawbone and healthy gums, and
- do not suffer from gum disease.
Before implant placement, bone grafting is an option if a person does not have the necessary bone density. Moreover, other factors should be considered, such as habits detrimental to oral health like smoking and chronic illnesses like diabetes. Your commitment to oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups is also a factor to be considered.
It takes a few months to complete an implant treatment, with several phases of tests and minor operations. This outpatient dental procedure takes three to nine months to complete.
During the first phase, we will discuss everything you need to know about dental implants and answer any questions you might have. Additionally, we will examine your teeth, gums, and jawbone. It is essential that your gums and teeth be thoroughly examined to ensure that you do not have cavities or gum disease and that you have enough healthy jawbone to support the implant. You must also be in good dental health for implant surgery.
Once you are determined to be a good candidate for dental implants, we can begin the treatment. Your dentist will give you a local anaesthetic and make an incision in your gums to expose the bone. By drilling a hole in the bone, the titanium implant will be embedded deep into the bone, acting as an artificial tooth root. Once inserted, it will be screwed securely to prevent debris from entering. The titanium dental implant will fuse with your bone in three to six months. The process is known as osseointegration.
Once the implant has stabilised, and osseointegration has been completed, your dentist will attach the abutment screw. Abutments extend the implant above the soft tissue and connect the prosthesis to the implant. The gum tissue will form a protective layer around the abutment. There is a recovery period of several weeks after the abutment has been installed.
Once the dental implant has grown into the bone and has become firm enough to support chewing, we can begin the process of placing the crown. We will take new impressions of your mouth and send them to the dental laboratory. A dental technician creates your custom crowns based on your dental impressions. As soon as it is completed, we will place the crown on top of the abutment, and it will be the only visible part of the implant.
Dental implants typically last between 20 and 30 years. Their lifespan is dependent on how well they are taken care of and your oral health habits. An unhealthy lifestyle can negatively impact the lifespan of dental implants.
Several factors may cause dental implants to need replacement earlier than the typical 20+ years. If they are hit too hard or damaged in any other way, they may need to be replaced. Furthermore, dental implants are not immune from infections and other dental problems.
Gum disease will prevent you from getting dental implants. To be a good candidate for dental implants, you must have good dental health. If you are suffering from gum disease, you need to undergo treatment before getting dental implants. Periodontitis can weaken the jawbone and cause the gums to recede, which makes it hard for the implants to be stable.
Dental implants vary significantly in cost from patient to patient and from treatment to treatment, as each case is unique. Several factors affect the cost of treatment, including the type of implant, the number of implants required, your dentist’s expertise, and location. In Western Australia, a single implant can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000.
A dental implant is both a cosmetic treatment and a complex restorative procedure. There are several parts, each with its own cost: the implant, the abutment, and the crown.
Additionally, patients who have lost bone mass in their jaw may require a bone graft, which increases the cost. Implants cost a lot of money in materials, and the skills and expertise of the dentist, the dental technician, and everyone else involved in the process.
When it comes to your oral health, especially dental implants, you will want a skilled dental team to perform the procedure. Costs will likely be high but consider the money spent as an investment, as dental implants last longer than other alternatives. In return, you will enjoy healthy, bright white teeth and an amazing smile.
There is no special care required for dental implants. Nonetheless, good oral hygiene is essential to protect your investment. Just like your natural teeth, brush and floss your implants on a regular basis to avoid plaque and calculus buildup.
Dental check-ups and professional cleanings are also recommended to keep your teeth healthy and your dental implants in optimal condition.
