Dental Implants

At Portarlington Dental, we specialize in providing top-quality dental implants to restore your beautiful smile. Our team of experienced dentists led by Principal Dr Beng So, is dedicated to helping you achieve optimal dental health using dental implants.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial teeth roots that are surgically implanted into the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth. The implants are made of titanium, a biocompatible material that fuses with the bone over time, creating a strong and durable anchor for a dental crown, bridge, or denture.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer many benefits over traditional tooth replacement options, such as dentures and bridges. Some of the advantages of dental implants include:

  1. Improved appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, restoring your smile and giving you more confidence.
  2. Improved comfort: Dental implants are designed to fit snugly in your mouth, eliminating the discomfort and irritation associated with dentures and bridges.
  3. Improved speech: Dentures and bridges can slip and slide in your mouth, making it difficult to speak clearly. Dental implants provide a stable and secure anchor for replacement teeth, improving your ability to speak clearly.
  4. Improved oral health: Dental implants do not require any special maintenance, and they can be cleaned just like natural teeth. They also do not require the removal of healthy tooth structure, unlike bridges.
  5. Improved durability: Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance, making them a cost-effective long-term solution for tooth replacement.

The Dental Implant Process

At Portarlington Dental, we use the latest technology and techniques to ensure a safe and comfortable dental implant procedure. The process typically involves the following steps:

  1. Consultation: During your initial consultation, our dental team will assess your oral health and determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
  2. Implant placement: The dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, and a temporary crown or bridge may be placed over the implant while it heals.
  3. Healing: Over the next few months, the implant will fuse with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration.
  4. Permanent restoration: Once the implant has fully fused with the bone, a permanent crown, bridge, or denture is attached to the implant.
  5. Follow-up: Our dental team will schedule follow-up appointments to ensure that the implant is healing properly and to monitor your oral health.
