Dental Implants at Rivergum Smiles

Today’s Mill Park Tooth Replacement

implant illustrationDental implants at Rivergum Smiles are biocompatible, artificial “roots” that mimic the design and function of natural teeth. When set into the jaw and integrated with your body, they can support fixed restorations such as crowns, bridges and dentures.

Over the years, dental implants have become more advanced and predictable. So much so that today, implants are the preferred choice for replacing missing teeth. Approximately 98% of dental implants last for life, making them the most long-lasting solution for our patients.
  • When placed into the mouth, implants
  • Help preserve your bone and facial profile
  • Are non-invasive to other teeth
  • Integrate with the bone, fusing them permanently in place
  • Can support more weight than natural teeth

Types of Dental Implant Restorations

Your implant treatment will greatly depend on how many teeth are missing. After being set into the bone and allowed to heal, you’ll return to have the final restoration anchored in place. Examples include:

  • Single tooth crowns: Mimicking the design of natural teeth, individual implants with a ceramic crown are the most lifelike tooth replacement in modern dentistry.
  • Extended dental bridges: Instead of wearing a partial denture, we can create a bridge that’s supported on either end by a single implant.
  • Implant stabilised dentures: Fixed or removable, these dentures provide added comfort and security throughout the day.

Planning for Your Treatment

Getting dental implants requires several appointments, beginning with proper planning and surgery, followed by healing and integration, then finally installation of the fixed restoration. However, we’ll be able to fit you with a temporary prosthesis to wear so that you do not have to go without teeth between your appointments, especially if front teeth are involved.
