Dental Implants in Sydney

If you’re missing a natural tooth, you may need dental implants to restore both function and aesthetics to the mouth. The general dentists at Marsfield Dental Care provide professional treatments to patients in Macquarie Park and other nearby Sydney suburbs, with the advanced training and expertise to deliver the results you want.

A referral to an oral surgeon, periodontist and/or prosthodontist may be required in some cases. Risks and consequences may apply to any treatment, in particular implant treatment. It is best that you are assessed by a dental professional prior to embarking on any dental implant treatment so that the risks, consequences and benefits of such treatment are explained to you in detail and in-person. A second opinion may be recommended when considering complex treatment.

We believe that everyone has the right to high quality, affordable dental care, providing a wide range of dental services to ensure you achieve that perfect smile. From dental implants to dental fillings and crowns, our qualified doctors are on-hand to talk you through your options, to explain the process and benefits of each.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a long-term treatment option to correct one or more missing teeth. They’re usually made of a biocompatible titanium material that is surgically inserted into the gum to enable it to permanently fuse with the jawbone.

Implants function in a similar way to natural teeth, providing an anchor for replacement treatments such as crowns and bridges, with a screw that acts as the new root. At Marsfield Dental Care, we use the latest dentistry technology and methods to ensure minimal trauma to your gum and deliver the most comfortable treatment possible.

Are dental implants right for you?

Dental implants are an attractive alternative to dentures when correcting missing teeth. A good candidate for implant treatment has good oral health and strong bone structure in the jaw to support the implant. Whether you have one missing tooth or multiple, if you’re searching for a natural-looking solution, implants may be the right option for you.

There are numerous benefits to dental implants, including:

  • They provide a naturally enhanced appearance, that improve not only your smile but can also rejuvenate your entire face.
  • They can restore your confidence in your smile.
  • There’s no harm to your natural teeth; the process involves no grinding or cutting down of neighbouring teeth.
  • No toxic adhesives or metals are used, so there’s no risk of allergies or related side effects.
  • Aftercare is simple, as implants function just like normal teeth.

What’s involved in the procedure?

 Our Macquarie Park based dentists approach the implant process with our high clinical standards, from initial consultation to final results. As a nationally accredited practice, we follow set national standards for infection control and have been assessed on these standards.

We’ll talk you through every step of the process and educate you on aftercare and maintaining the cleanliness of your implants. Since implants can be a time-consuming and often costly process, before placing them we give our patients an honest opinion based on clinical and radiographic (X-rays) examinations. You will need extra imaging to determine whether there is enough bone to place implants, the location of any vital anatomic structures and what dimensions the implant to be placed can fit in.

Here’s what you can expect from the implant process:

  • A thorough assessment of your teeth and gums.
  • We fit a connecting structure (known as an abutment) over the implant.
  • We insert a post into the jawbone to enable it to fuse with the bone, creating a strong foundation for the replacement tooth.
  • A crown that matches the colour and shape of your existing natural teeth is connected to the abutment.

Typically, you’ll need two appointments for dental implants, and the process can take up to 3-6 months.
