What are dental implants surgery?

Every person loses teeth as they get older, it can be a heart-wrenching process. Dental Implant Surgery is the solution!
A lot of time, a lot of money, and a lot of emotion is spent on oral health. Which makes it all the more important to select a dentist that you feel comfortable with and trust.

Dental implants are small metal cylinders that are permanently implanted into the jawbone to replace missing teeth.
The process is relatively simple, as it involves getting a small, thin incision in your gums. Placing the cylinder through the incision, and setting a screw to secure the implant.
Once the implant is placed, the only thing to do is wait for it to heal, and then to get used to the weight of the new tooth. Now, you can go ahead and get that smile you've always wanted.

A dental implant surgery is the artificial placement of the tooth’s root. When being applied, a titanium post is surgically placed in the jaw of your mouth, followed by natural bonding with your bone.

The purpose of such a procedure is to allow support, which our dentists at Gorgeous Smiles can then use as a foundation for replacement teeth or dental crowns.

When are dental implants used?

For many people, the answer is simple: when the need for dental implants outweighs the risks and the benefits.
Especially those who are unwilling to risk the procedure, the answer is much more complicated.
You can get dental implants without first having all of your teeth removed.

How does Dental Implants Work?

Watch this video of Dr. Minoo explaining the procedures and your options for replacing a missing tooth :

Dental implants surgery are beneficial due to their fusing to the jawbone, as well as being unattached to your teeth. Additionally, titanium posts once put in place, will not distort and creates a strong foundation for replacement dental application. Moreover, as the titanium fuses to your bone and becomes part of your facial structure, the discomfort usually associated with dentures is eliminated.

Advantages of Dental Implants. Does Insurance cover the cost of implants?

dental-implant Benefits include the titanium implant allowing for no other teeth to be used in the application of teeth replacement. In comparison, other outdated methods of applying dentures or bridges may cause a great deal of discomfort as they rely on being secured to the adjacent teeth. Gorgeous Smile’s dental implants avoid this distress with the cutting edge titanium implant procedure. Furthermore, by having a fixed titanium structure you are ensuring the quality of your replacement crowns or teeth. As these replacement procedures are anchored to the titanium post, there is no wobbling or slipping when eating or conversing.

How much does a dental implant cost?

When done correctly, the All On 4 treatment provides tremendous value in terms of beauty, function, and longevity, despite the high initial expenditure. When you choose All On 4 Clinic, you can rest assured that you will receive the best possible treatment from implant specialists and an authentic product at a low cost.

The price of All-On-4 dental implants to replace a complete set of upper or lower teeth starts at AUD 18,000 for a complete set of upper or lower teeth.

This is accomplished by a conventional procedure that involves the placement of a temporary set of teeth. The cheapest or budget option is made up of a denture-like prosthesis that is adapted over the implant fixings. However, this procedure will necessitate an additional expenditure for the future conversion of a final prosthesis.

Aside from the hidden costs of provisional/temporary teeth, there are substantial problems with these techniques, leading to long-term implant complications.
To avoid the risks, we offer our unique All-On-4 Plus FINAL option, in which the FINAL teeth are put within 24 hours of surgery.

This is due to the All-On-4 Clinic's one-of-a-kind original system. It provides the very best value, comfort, and aesthetics.

The bridge (replacement teeth) is easy to maintain and can be done by any neighbourhood dentist or hygienist.
However, every patient is a little different and has its own requirements. As a result, without consulting one of our dental implant experts, it is impossible to determine appropriateness, exact therapy, or cost.

We offer each patient a complete treatment proposal and quote following their consultation visit.
We recognise that implants may not be a viable option for every patient. Those who do get these procedures, on the other hand, generally feel that they gain not only a beautiful smile but also increased confidence. Ability to eat a wide variety of meals and a general improvement in quality of life.

What is a dental implant procedure?

An implant is a tooth replacement permanently attached to the jawbone, unlike dentures, which can move around in your mouth. This allows an implant to mimic the appearance and function of the native tooth it replaces. If you're thinking about getting dental implants, here's some more information on what to expect during the procedure.


To establish if you're a good candidate for a dental implant, your dentist will examine your mouth. Unfortunately, not all patients are strong candidates for dental implants. For example, you need a certain degree of healthy bone material to place a dental implant. However, suppose you don't have enough bone material. In that case, To improve the jawbone at the procedure site, your dentist may recommend a smaller mini dental implant or bone grafting.

If you have multiple missing teeth, a regular dental implant may not be your only option. In addition to implant, your dentist may suggest a variety of procedures, including implant-supported dentures, in addition to restorations.

Bone Grafts

Your dentist may suggest a bone transplant to enhance the amount of healthy bone at the implant location. In the majority of cases, a graft is used. When the tooth to be replaced been extracted. This is done to protect the site in preparation for the next implant. This is sometimes required after a tooth has been missing for an extended time. Unfortunately, there has also been some bone loss. Bone graft materials come in various shapes and sizes., which will be discussed with you before your procedure. Before the implant, the bone graft must heal for some time.

Dental Implants and Temporary Crown

Your dentist will then place the dental implant and potentially a temporary crown. For a single implant, the surgery takes around an hour to perform. Any discomfort you may have during the first few days after the treatment may usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medicines.

Waiting and Healing

Your mouth must recover before permanent crowns may be fitted. 

This time can extend several months for some patients. For example, your jaw may take six months or longer to recuperate enough to complete the dental implant operation. 

Your dentist will evaluate your progress to determine when the last appointment should be scheduled.

Abutment and Crown

During your final appointment, your dentist will remove your temporary crown. Place a permanent crown, and put a permanent crown in your last meeting. You're done with the operation after this is completed. Your dentist may provide you with further guidance on caring for your new dental implant.
