Implant Placement at MV Ortho

Mona Vale Dental Implant Surgery

Dental Implants Mona ValeIf you’re considering dental implants but your family or general dentist does not provide in-house surgical placement, we are able to partner with your dental provider to complete your implant surgery here in our office.

Dental implants are a tooth replacement option that’s an alternative to conventional bridges or removable partial dentures. If your orthodontist has created space for an implant in your mouth, the restoration will help preserve natural tooth spacing. As an artificial “root,” the implant supports a fixed restoration like a crown or bridge made by your dentist.

The Lifespan of Dental Implants

All dental implants are made up of different components, each of which requires various maintenance, replacement and have a separate life expectancy. For example, an individual implant is usually made up of the implant screw that sets into the bone, an abutment that screws into the implant to support the final restoration and then the “tooth” on top, such as a crown or bridge.

The crown component may require replacement every 5-10 years, while the implant screw itself can last for life as long as it’s cared for properly. Your ongoing oral hygiene and professional maintenance will have a tremendous impact on the overall outcome of your investment.

A Step-by-Step Approach to Treatment

Getting dental implants should never be a process that you rush through as quickly as possible. Rather, it’s a complex procedure with various situations that need to be considered. Rushing through placement and restoration of your implant can potentially predispose it to failure.

During your one-hour dental implant consultation we will discuss your unique situation and all of the information involved in treating cases like yours. As we take the time to ensure your procedure is successful, you’ll be able to feel confident about what you’re getting into before treatment even starts.

Understanding the Advantages and Risks

Investing in a new dental implant requires ongoing care and maintenance to ensure that you get the most out of your treatment and reduce the risk of failure. Although implants are not the same as natural teeth, they should be cared for as such. With the proper maintenance, you can ensure that your smile lasts as long as possible (similar to when you purchase a new car).
