Dental Implants

Want to know more about Dental Implants on the Central Coast?

Missing or lost teeth can impact the function of your existing teeth and the appearance of your smile. At Warnervale Dental, we utilise highly effective and long lasting dental implants from TEETH ON IMPLANTS®. By replacing missing teeth, we create a healthy, natural-looking smile, enhancing a patients’ ability to chew and smile.

The Teeth on Implants® dental implant difference

The Teeth on Implants® dental implants system is a revolutionary dental technique that offers a permanent solution to missing teeth. Dental implants replace the missing tooth’s root, which is used to secure the new tooth into the correct position. Implants are made of titanium and integrated into the jaw bone below the gum’s surface. A crown is then attached to the top of the implant to imitate the profile of your natural teeth. At Warnervale Dental, we use hand-crafted porcelain crowns to ensure the new tooth is a perfect match in terms of size, shape and colour of the surrounding teeth.

Why should you choose dental implants?

Teeth on Implants® will give you beautiful looking teeth that allow you to speak, smile and laugh with renewed confidence. They can replace any number of missing teeth with no damage to the adjacent teeth. They can also be used to stabilise uncomfortable dentures, and ultimately allow patients to replace unhealthy teeth with healthy options!

The team at Warnervale Dental will perform a 3D scan before beginning any work, and your new set of teeth will be perfectly aligned because they will be modeled and designed using advanced CAD/CAM technology, ensuring they come out perfectly the first time.

Will they stand out? We ensure that your dental implants will be the right shade to match the rest of your remaining natural teeth, should you choose to restore only one arch.

Dental implants FAQs

How many appointments will dental implants take?

You will need at least two appointments at Warnervale Dental prior to commenting dental implant treatment. This is to make sure you’ve had a chance to discuss the best treatment options, and been made aware of any potential complications. The cost of the treatment and consent will be discussed in detail in these initial appointments.

We give you the knowledge and space to ask all of the questions you may have, and to express any concerns.

What is involved in the placement of dental implants?

First, x-rays are taken to allow safe and accurate planning, alongside digital scanning and intraoral photographs. The location and size of the implants are all determined prior to the surgery day.

The implant procedure involves placing one or more pre-determined titanium screws into the jaw bone.

Are dental implants painful?

We use local anaesthetics to ensure patient comfort, as the implant procedure is very delicate and accurate.

After surgery, we would generally prescribe antibiotics and painkillers, depending on the procedures. To allow for healing and reduce infection risk, we advise that you have a minimum of one day off intense physical activity.

Could dental implants be placed under sedation?

Our dentists are definitely able to perform the procedure under either oral sedation, twilight or I.V sedation.

Please note that selecting ‘twilight sedation’ means you will fall asleep while we perform the procedure, leaving you with no memory of the event. It’s important that you organise a driver and carer to look after you for the rest of the day.

Can dental implants fail?

Dental implants generally have a long-term and high success rate, but there are limitations with everything.

Some of the factors that reduce the success rate are,

  • Smoking
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Chronic systemic disease
  • Large chewing forces on a newly placed implant

While all the above may have an effect of the success rate, they are not contraindications for dental implants. Regular follow ups and hygiene appointments are absolutely crucial to ensure the health of your implants.

What are the main contradictions to dental implants?
  • Uncontrolled systemic disease, such as diabetes, osteoporosis, pulmonary issues.
  • Patients receiving high doses of infusions for multiple myeloma and severe osteoporosis.
  • Patients receiving chemotherapy drugs.
  • Bleeding disorders.
  • Immune suppressive disorders.
  • Age of people younger then approximately eighteen years of age.
  • Bone disorders such as Paget’s disease.

Your health and safety are paramount to us and therefore any issues we have related to your medical health are discussed with your medical practitioner.

Please note that all surgical procedures carry risks. These treatments do not apply to and cannot be performed on everyone. Thorough examinations and assessment is required, and the outcomes may vary depending on multiple factors.

If you’re concerned about dental procedures or discomfort, please be aware our dentists are very gentle and considerate of your experience. We also offer dental sedation, otherwise known as sleep dentistry, to help make the experience as positive as possible.
