Implants for Replacing a Single Tooth

Losing a tooth can be devastating. You can feel self-conscious and suffer a lack of self-esteem. Did you know that your tooth could be replaced quickly and easily with a dental implant at Bobby Chhoker Clinic? Dental implants offer a clinically proven solution to getting a great smile back and being able to bite and chew with confidence.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant Bondi Junction, Sydney is a small titanium screw that integrates perfectly into your gum tissue, just where the root of your tooth would sit. These are metal screws that are placed in the jaw bone and on which natural looking artificial teeth can be supported.

Here’s how it works:

The process involves a surgical placement of a titanium screw in the jawbone. The operation is usually carried out using local anaesthetic. Sometimes a sedation drug may be advised to make the patient feel more relaxed. In rare circumstances, general anaesthetic can be used.

  1. The screw will be surgically placed directly into your jaw by Bobby Chhoker Clinic. It’s shape and material are optimal for close contact and ultimately fusion with bone, providing maximum stability later on.
  2. Depending on the condition of your mouth and jawbone, the implant ‘abutment’ (the crown or bridge that fits onto the screw) may be added immediately after the screw is inserted, or sometimes it may be added later. It is designed to blend in perfectly with your natural teeth in colour and shape.
  3. There will be some healing time. The screw will slowly mesh with the bone, becoming a natural component of your jaw.

Your implant will look like a normal tooth. You will still be able to bite and chew normally, and the bone in your jaw will remain intact over time.

Am I suitable for a dental implant?

At Bobby Chhoker Clinic we like to find a solution for everybody. At your consultation we will assess the best treatment for you. Often patients are told they do not have sufficient bone for implants, but this is something that can be managed at Bobby Chhoker Clinic.

Are dental implants always successful?

For long term success, it’s vital that you maintain an excellent standard of oral hygiene and routine visits to check your implant. Smoking can adversely affect the chances of your implant being successful

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • A beautiful, natural smile that is all your own.
  • When you lose your natural tooth, your jaw bone and surrounding tissues can start to disappear over time. When an implant is placed in the jaw, it stimulates the remaining bone to grow and mesh around the metal, along with tiny blood vessels, preventing bone loss. Retained bone density maintains your face structure, preventing a ‘sunken’ look.
  • The reassuring knowledge that your implant will last you a lifetime if properly cared for.
  • Full function restored, so you can eat, chew and bite as usual, which means greater freedom for you.
  • Implants are a natural-looking way to replace missing teeth.
