Tooth Replacement and Affordable Dental Implants on the Gold Coast

Restore your smile and regain your sense of self confidence with quality yet affordable dental restorative solutions from Carrara Dental Practice.

Dental implants are small fixtures shaped like a screw or cylinder that act as substitutes for natural tooth roots. The fixture or fixtures are placed into the jawbone and a small portion of it projects through the gum. The replacement tooth is then attached to this portion. This procedure can be used to support a single tooth, fixed bridge or a denture and are a highly durable, permanent solution.

If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to restore your teeth with a technique that replicates the look and feel of your natural teeth as closely as possible, then implants may be the treatment of choice for you. Our clients find implants well worth the cost because of the superior comfort, appearance, stability and longevity. In fact, dental implants are much more affordable than many people assume, they cost little more than a 3 tooth bridge and lasting substantially longer.

What to expect when you come in for the procedure

Generally speaking, this procedure takes around 2-4 months to complete as it takes some time for the bone to heal. The upside of this is that implants generally last the rest of your life unlike a bridge which needs replacing once every ten years. Generally speaking, the treatment is done in two phases; the first phase involves extracting the damaged tooth (if there is one) and inserting the implant into the jawbone. This is then left to heal and during this time, the bone and the implant will fuse creating a strong root for your crown. The second phase of the treatment involves crafting and inserting the crown or bridge over the top.
