What Is A Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a cylindrical post, usually made of titanium, that is placed in the jawbone so that it can fuse with your natural bone and become a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth or for an implant-supported bridge or denture containing multiple teeth.

Your teeth, like your fingerprints, are unique — no one else’s are the same as yours. Many options exist to replace missing teeth, but only one — dental implants — can provide the feel, function and appearance of natural teeth.

WHY DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implants allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play and enjoy life without worrying about your teeth.

  • Next best thing to healthy, natural teeth.
  • Built to last.
  • Retain your natural face shape and smile.
  • Keep teeth in place — silently.
  • Protect healthy bone.
  • Protect your healthy teeth.
  • Speak easily.
  • Eat your favorite foods!
  • Keep your teeth in your mouth — not in a cup.
  • More predictable than other repair and restoration methods.

Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth. Dental implants are a long-term solution that can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for. Taste and enjoy the foods you love without hesitation. Dental implants allow you to keep your teeth where they belong — in your mouth.

WHO NEEDS DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implant patients are adults of all ages. Implants may be the right choice for anyone missing one, multiple, or even all of their teeth due to injury, defects, disease or decay. They can even be an option for adolescents once the jaw stops growing, typically around 16 for girls and 18 for boys.

ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Take our dental implant self test:

  1. Do you have one or more missing teeth?
  2. Do you have a bridge that needs to be replaced?
  3. Do your dentures affect your quality of life by slipping, clicking or keeping you from eating what you want?
  4. Do you have bite problems or pain because of a missing tooth?
  5. Do you want a treatment option for missing teeth that provides a more permanent, long-term solution?

If you answer “yes” to one or more of these questions, dental implants may be an option for you.

Patient Review By Connie H

I came to Dr Hung's Dental Centre on the advice of a friend who had already come 2 years before to get her own dental work done. On arrival, I found the clinic to be clean, beautiful and professional looking. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and caring even though sometimes the language barrier was a problem - somehow we managed to get around that with sign language! My teeth needed major work as I had had many fillings in the past, my teeth looked cracked and worn down and I had had a few extractions. I had my teeth capped, 3 implants and a bridge put in. It was much more cost effective than were I live in Australia. My dentist was very good - and very patient! I am a very nervous patient and my teeth were very sensitive. However my dentist was very skilled and persevering. I now have very natural looking, lovely teeth. Thank you Dr Hung and your team for your lovely work and for the confidence I have with my new smile!

Very professional service which exceeded all my expectations. The most modern clinic I have ever seen, with all the latest equipment in house. Combined with a very high level of cleanliness, all my prior research has certainly paid off.
